How much do appliance engineers charge?

Posted on 12/07/2018

An appliance engineer is a specialist electrician who will come out to fix or install appliances in your home. This can range from larger white goods like dishwashers or washing machines, to gas cookers and stoves. But essentially if any appliance in your home needs repairing – these guys will get it done.

How much they charge you will, as always, be dependent on a number of factors. For example where you live and how urgently you need the repair made.

It will also vary depending on if you need a repair, a replacement or an installation.

Below we’ve gathered together some sample costs, taken from the more common requests made through Local Heroes.

These should be seen as guidance and for reference only, not as a guarantee.
