Cooker installations


During a gas cooker installation, your Gas Safe registered gas cooker installer will disconnect your old appliance and fit a new gas hose and bayonet; this is because the existing installation may not have remained tight enough throughout its time fitted. The gas installer may also fit a security chain
or a stability bracket to prevent the appliance tilting or becoming uneven. Once this is done the cooker installer will position
the new cooker and test the cooker for any gas leaks and ensure its safe operation thereafter. The installer will then provide you with a copy of the documentation. It is a legal requirement to have a Gas Safety Certificate so it is vital that your installer issues you with one.
 
Your appliance should be serviced annually to ensure there are no leaks or problems. This can be completed by a gas cooker installer.
