Installing Your Range
Once you've purchased your range, it's important to know what you need to safely install your new appliance. Depending on wiring, placement, and power source, installing your new range might take more grunt work than you think. Make sure it's in your budget to have a professional help you safely install your range so you can enjoy using it with peace of mind.
New ranges often don't come with hookups. Be sure to consult your owner's manual or a professional to determine the hookups you need to purchase before installing your range. It's best to hire a professional so safely install range as he or she will make sure all wiring and fuel lines are undamaged and attached correctly. This is especially important if your new range uses a different energy source than your old one. You'll want to make sure gas, electric, and dual-fuel ranges are correctly connected to their power source to prevent life-threating accidents or damage to your range.
Before installing your range, make sure you've measured your appliance and have the appropriate amount of space in your kitchen. If you don't already have a place to put a range, or if you'd like to create a new space for it, make sure you work with a professional to carve out countertop and cabinet space as well as rewire electrical hookups or redirect fuel lines.
