How much do appliance engineers charge in 2019?

Posted on 4/22/2019

An appliance engineer is a specialist electrician who will come out to repair 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, depend on a number of factors including:

  • Where you live
  • Any spare parts
  • The manufacturer and age of the appliance
  • How urgently you need the work to be carried out

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

The cost of an appliance engineer depends on the location, the manufacturer and the level of urgency

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.
