Fitting a gas hob can be trickier than fitting a normal gas cooker. A gas hob has certain space requirements needed in order for it to be installed. For example, a minimum of 750mm clearance is required above a gas hob to a cooker hood. Any units that are fitted to the walls either side of a hood must be at least 366mm above.

When fitting a gas hob, it can be dangerous to not allow a qualified engineer to install your Gas hob. Installing a Gas hob is not as easy as it looks. When installing a gas hob, checks need to be carried out to ensure there are no gas leakages. The pipes are not flexible like the ones needed for a normal oven; they require solid copper pipes, so they need to be installed by a professional qualified Gas Cooker Engineer who can guarantee that the Gas hob is connected safely. Both normal Gas Cookers and Gas Hob cookers are advised to be installed by a professional.
At first, our engineers will turn off your gas supply. Then they will establish the best way to connect your gas supply to the oven using copper pipes. Next our engineers will cut down the pipes to the correct size needed for your gas hob fitting to ensure there is a safe, tight connection. Once the connection is completed, our engineer will check the connection is secure and only when they are confident that everything is done properly will they be finished.
