TM Hughes & Son is a family-run business with 30+ years of experience. Our Gas Safe Registered engineers offer a Gas Cooker Installation & Disconnection service to the residents of Basildon.
Despite the recent technological advances in Electric cookers in recent years, Gas Cookers remain a popular option. Nothing beats the ‘cooked over gas’ taste, and many like the instant heat and accurate heat distribution gas offers.
Gas appliances should be disconnected and installed by qualified Gas engineers who are well versed in plumbing and heating. Improper installation can lead to gas leaks which can be fatal. Using a certified engineer, you know your installations safe and on the right side of the law.
Most cooker warranties, household and landlord insurance policies are only valid if the installations been carried out by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.

An engineer will arrive at the agreed time and analyse your kitchen for safety, taking note of the gas line power points, switches, smoke alarms and combustible materials that may cause issues.
Gas Cookers need clearance to operate safely. The area above the hob is called the hot zone.
The hot zone must be clear of obstructions and combustible materials, such as
- Kitchen Units
- Smoke Alarms
A clear area of 750mm above the hob and at least 50mm (ideally more) on each side of the hob, anything placed within this area is a fire risk.
New cookers need to be within 1.5 meters of the gas connection. In the event your gas lines further away, our engineers can usually rectify this on the day.
Once we’re satisfied with the areas safe and suitable for the installation, the gas supply is switched off.
