    Gas hob installation

    Find out everything you need to know about our gas hob installation service.

    Our fully trained team can get your new gas hob up and running on delivery day for just £120. All our engineers are gas safe registered and can provide you with a gas certificate upon completion. Find out what's included in the service and what you can do to prepare for us.

    What we'll do

    If you’ve selected our installation service for your new appliance, we’ll also unpack your new hob when we get there and disconnect your old one too.

    We need to do some gas tests before and after the installation. So, if you’re on a meter, make sure it’s topped up. Don’t worry about cables. We’ll bring everything we need to get your new hob installed.

    Then it’s the exciting part. We’ll get to work installing your new gas hob in its home! We’ll take pictures during installation, just so we’ve got a record of the service.

    Picked our Remove & Recycle service? We’ll take away your old hob when we leave. We are unable to disconnect or recycle Aga appliances.

    What you need to do

    The image above is an example of a generic Hot Zone. Your existing Hot Zone (the space around your hob) will need to be free from switches, cooker hoods and flammable items, including cupboards and wallpaper. There’ll need to be a gap of at least 75cm between your hob and the cooker hood or ceiling above. We will not be able to install if it isn’t clear of hazards.

    As with any gas appliance, you need to make sure that the room your new hob is going to be living in has direct ventilation to an outside space. We’ll need to connect you up to an existing gas supply, so double check you’ve got access to one. If you’re on a meter, we'll need to use it, so make sure we've got access to it and you’re topped up enough so we can test properly. There’ll also need to be a 3 pin socket or cooker point (that big red switch) within 1.5 metres of your hob’s new home.

    Make sure your current electrical connection (plug socket or big red switch) matches what your new hob needs. If your new hob is over 3kw, then you’ll need a big red switch. If your new hob is below 3kw, then you’ll only need a regular plug socket. Compare what you have with the details of your new hob on the Key Information tab on our product pages to make sure you’re all set.

    You’ll also find the dimensions of your chosen hob within the Key Information section on our product pages. Double check that the height, width and depth are suitable for the space in your kitchen.

    What we don't cover

    • The installation of cooking products is only available on certain days in certain postcodes.
    • Although our teams are fully qualified to carry out gas installations, we can’t fix existing gas leaks.
    • If an old boiler doesn’t relight after we’ve installed your new appliance, our team are not liable. Your provider will need to be contacted.
    • Although we can amend your worktop if it's made of wood or laminate, we won’t alter any of your other property. This includes anything within the Hot Zone.
    • Installation isn’t available at commercial properties unless there’s a separate residential meter that we can use.
