A new electric hob is normally more energy efficient than older ones. And they’re designed to give your kitchen a sleek and sophisticated look. But replacing this appliance involves working with electricity, so there are several safety risks involved. Without the right tools and skills, you can also damage your new hob, the worktops, wiring and even the extractor fan and cabinets.
This is not an easy do-it-yourself job, so we recommend hiring a Part P qualified electrician. These professionals are certified to work with electricity in and around your home, and will do the installation within national safety regulations.
Your electrician will switch off your electricity supply before carefully disconnecting the wires and removing your old hob from the worktop. After making sure your new hob’s frequency and voltage match your household supply, they’ll connect it to right wires and click the appliance into place. They’ll seal the edges and test your new hob before they go.
If you’re thinking of replacing your electric hob, you want someone who can do it as quickly and safely as possible. And that means finding a tradesperson that’s local to you. With hundreds of professionals on our platform, we can match you with a Part P qualified electrician in your area in minutes.
You can coordinate diaries and decide on a date that suits you both. Your electrician won’t have to drive far, so there’s no need to factor in travelling costs and you can book them for emergencies and any other non-urgent jobs too. They’re also fully up to date with national regulations. It’s never been easier to find a reliable Local Hero.
