Whether using natural gas or LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), gas cooker installation is becoming more and more popular across the country. From new buildings to remodeling and conversions, it seems like gas is quickly becoming a preferred mode of cooking, heating, and warming.
Popularity, however, is not a legitimate reason for cutting corners or considering DIY when it comes to gas cooker installation. Anyone thinking about getting gas cooker installation should seek the services of a professional and certified gas cooker installation company to do the job.
If you are considering getting a gas cooker installed in your home, here are some considerations to help you make that decision:
Benefits of Using a Gas Cooker
- Gas takes minimal time to heat up
- Compared to electric cookers, gas provides even distribution of heat
- Gas allows you to easily and quickly control how much heat you need to cook i.e. you can reduce or increase the heat as needed, with immediate response
- Gas is not affected by power blackouts
- Gas is often cheaper, cleaner and energy efficient.
How to Install a Gas Cooker at Home
Gas cooker installation will require the services of a licensed gas fitter. Before any installation work is undertaken, the gas plumber will confirm that you have a connection to the mains supply. Where one is not available then you will need to request a new service connection. Once the connection is available, the fitter will come in to fit in the appliance.
For a freestanding gas cooker, the fitter will measure the dimensions of the cooker and the space available for installation to ensure the cooker can fit in. He will lay the cooker on its side and fix the underpins. Next, the gas pipe will be connected to the manifold and gas activated and checked for leakage. The device will then be plugged into the outlet and gas tested to ensure it is working properly.
