Installing a new gas hob can be a fiddly job. You need to prepare the countertop opening, make the right gas and electrical connections and finally position and test the new hob. And since the job involves working with gas, it can pose several safety risks.
To install your new hob safely, we recommend hiring a Gas Safe Registered engineer. They’ll do a thorough health and safety assessment and turn off your gas supply. Next, they’ll remove the old hob and prepare the surface and appliance enclosure for the new fitting. Your gas engineer will remove all obstructions and connect the gas supply to the new hob. They’ll check for gas leaks, install and seal the new cooktop and do a final round of testing before they leave.
It’s ideal to find a local professional when you need work done. But finding a Gas Safe engineer in your area can take hours of research. And with many rogue traders advertising online or in directories, it’s hard to know who to trust.
We have hundreds of Gas Safe Registered engineers on our platform. All you have to do is tell us where you are and we’ll match you with a Local Hero. After discussing the job with you, they’ll take all the necessary steps to keep you safe and install your new gas hob quickly. We also ask our customers for honest feedback, so when we recommend someone, we know they’ll do the job to the highest of standards and meet the latest legal requirements.
