Electric Cooker Installations

We offer a full electric cooker (oven) & electric hob installation service

Installing electric cookers always sounds like a simple job, almost a case of just plug it in and you are good to go, however, in reality installing an electric cooker is a complex job that should only be attempted by a trained electrician.  Electric cookers need a larger current than a lot of other electrical appliances as they need to generate a lot of heat, it is for this reason that an electric cooker must be installed by a qualified electrician to assess the current demand of the new appliance to check that the circuit and fuse/ MCB is suitable for it, and should only be undertaken by a qualified electrician who has experience in cooker installations.  Even if you are replacing an Electric cooker with another electric cooker this needs a new circuit for safety therefore is counted as a new install and should only be undertaken by a qualified electrician who has experience in cooker installations.

There are three different types of cooker installation dependant on the appliance purchased.

  • A simple 13A plug supply – suitable for low power single integrated ovens
  • A larger 16A/20A cooker/ oven circuit more suited to integrated double ovens
  • A 32A – 45A cooker circuit incorporating a 45A double pole switch local to the cooker used for stand alone cookers and Range / Stove type cookers

It may also be a simple case of replacing like for like from your existing appliance to that of a newer model, all of which can easily be identified and installed.
