Why Choose TM Hughes’s Professional Gas Cooker Installation?
For several reasons, using a professional for gas cooker installation or Disconnection is essential.
Safety should always be the first consideration when dealing with gas appliances. Incorrect installation or Disconnection can result in gas leaks, significantly increasing the risk of fires or explosions.
Furthermore, an incorrectly installed cooker may produce carbon monoxide due to incomplete combustion. This is an odourless, colourless, and potentially deadly gas that can harm inhabitants.
Professional installation by a certified Gas Engineer ensures safety.
Legal & Regulatory Obligations
In the UK, it is a legal requirement for anyone carrying out gas work, including fitting gas cookers, to be registered with the Gas Safe Register. It is illegal for anyone to undertake gas work without being Gas Safe Registered.
Insurance & Warranty
Insurance policies often have clauses that pertain to the installation and maintenance of household appliances, especially those involving gas.
Many of these policies stipulate that certified professionals must install and service gas appliances.
Non-compliance can void such insurance policies. Similarly, manufacturers’ warranties often require professional installation to remain valid.
Expertise & Equipment
Our engineers possess the necessary tools and equipment to ensure that the installation or Disconnection of your gas cooker is done safely and effectively, minimising the risk to both the household and the appliance.
Their expertise ensures that any challenges or unusual scenarios encountered during installation are addressed competently.
Peace Of Mind & Certification
The peace of mind comes from knowing a skilled professional has overseen the installation of your gas cooker.
Once the job is complete, our engineers provide a gas installation certificate confirming that the installation has met the required standards.
This documentation is important for warranty claims and insurance purposes.
The Installation Procedure
A Gas Cooker Installation is swift and tidy. Here’s a typical fitting procedure undertaken by our engineers:
- Turn off the gas supply at the mains.
- Ensure the room is well-ventilated.
- Double-check that the cooker is suitable for the type of gas in your home (e.g., natural gas or LPG).
- Decide where the cooker will be placed. It should be near a gas supply point and an electrical socket if the cooker requires electricity for ignition or other features.
- Ensure there’s enough clearance space around the cooker.
- Attach the gas hose to the cooker.
- Connect the other end of the hose to the gas supply using the correct fittings.
- If the cooker requires electricity, plug it into an electrical socket.
- Turn the gas supply back on.
- Check for gas leaks.
- Ignite the burners and the oven to ensure they light up correctly and the flame appears consistent and blue.
- If your cooker has safety features, like a Flame Supervision Device (FSD), ensure it’s working correctly.
- Adjust the cooker’s feet to ensure it’s level.
- Ensure the cooker is stable and doesn’t easily tip forward when doors are opened or when weight is applied.
- Confirm that the room or area has adequate ventilation.
- Complete a gas installation certificate.
- If needed, go over any safety recommendations or advice with the homeowner or user and guide them on basic operations.
