Installing an electric cooker is potentially stressful and dangerous if you don’t have the requisite skills. All our recommended electricians will be able to connect any of your appliances including your new electric cooker, and they will even disconnect your old cooker for you.
However, there are a few things that you can do to prepare for the cooker installation.
Our recommended electricians will need clear access to the installation location. So, it’s a good idea to clear out the space and remove any expensive or hard to replace items.
The electricians will need space to manoeuvre, so they can remove the old cooker out and get the new one into place.
When you purchase your cooker, always check the specification to ensure that it will fit in the space with adequate room at the sides and rear for ventilation. The cooker space should be clear above with no switches, boilers or power points.
For safety, there should be no flammable materials, such as fabric covers, wallpaper, wooden shelving, and curtains, above or near the prospective cooker location.
You will need the correct electrical supply outlet for your electric cooker, and it needs to be within 1.5m of your prospective location.
A freestanding electric cooker that consumes more than 3kW will need a 32 amp outlet. A single built in electric cooker that uses less than 2.99k will only require a regular 13 amp outlet.
If you’re replacing a gas cooker, let your electrician know in advance as the installation will require a Gas Safe registered engineer to remove the existing cooker first as well as the installation would require additional work to run a cable from your consumer unit to your cooker.
It’s a great idea to arrange a mutually convenient day when you will be available. Our electricians may need to consult with you and confirm some details about your cooker installation.
They will need to inspect your new appliance and survey the connections that are available before the installation can begin. This will ensure that your cooker will work as intended by the manufacturer and be safe to use.
Our recommended electricians will turn up at the appointed time and carry out some checks before they begin work.
The new electric cooker will be inspected and the old appliance disconnected and removed. All the connections will be checked, and a full health and safety assessment will be carried out.
If everything checks out, the new electric cooker will be moved into place and connected to the power supply. Then the cooker will be fully tested to make sure it works correctly and that it’s safe to use.
After the installation, you will receive a certificate for the energy type installed; this is a verification that the work has been carried out to a high standard and that the relevant safety checks have been made.
The last thing you want is a delay because of something that has not been verified in advance. Carrying out these checks will help our recommended electrician to get to work quickly and avoid an aborted service charge.
If you need more information get in touch with our recommended electrician in your area and they will be happy to help.
