You’ve bought that shiny new hob, but you don’t fancy installing it yourself. We get it. Why not let our experts take care of it for you with our fantastic Installation service?
Tip: You will need to know where your gas and electric meters and fuse box are located before we install.
You need to make sure that your kitchen worktop will be able to support your hob’s mount. We’re more than happy to make wooden worktops bigger, but granite, composite or metal worktops must be the right size.
Don’t forget to make sure you’ve got at least 30cm of clearance at either side of the hob for those large pan handles, and at least 5cm between the back of the hob and the wall.
If you’re getting an electric hob, you’ll need access to an electricity supply where you’d like to install the appliance. Also, it’s handy to note that if you have an electricity meter, then you’ll need to have credit.
Before you buy, double check the product’s fuse rating to find out whether it will need hardwiring by a qualified electrician. You can find this out in our product specifications section. FYI, range cookers and hobs require more power, so make sure you have the right supply.
If you’ve opted for a traditional gas hob then you’ll need to have an existing gas supply to the installation point. We can supply you with a gas pipe of up to 1.5 metres if you need.
You’ll still need an electricity supply for your gas hob so you can ignite those flames. Do you have an electric power socket or cooker point within 1.2 metres? If not, this is something you’ll need to consider when choosing your hob.
All gas appliances including hobs will need ventilation, like a window or door to outside. You’ll also need to consider cooker hoods and extractor fans that match the size and needs of your kitchen. We also recommend that you make sure there’s 30cm of space around the sides, and at least 5cm at the back of any new gas appliances for ventilation.
