Here Is What We Can Offer You, Other Than Friendly Prices!

We deliver quality for our customers, we have zero tolerance for mistakes.

To ensure a smooth, easy-going installation for you, we will make sure to reach out to you before the setup.

We will make sure everything will go as planned in your home. We will gladly remove your old unit, and install a new appliance at an affordable price within a few hours!

When we install the appliance ( with a gas supply) in a customer’s home in North London, we always make sure to test the connection before and after installing the fitting. (to avoid a potential gas leak)



The current “Hot Zone” in your home must be clear of any switches and any inflammable objects, such as heating pads, wallpaper and cupboards. There must be a break that is a minimum of 75 cm separating the hob and the cooker hood or ceiling. When we place our follow-up call, we will inquire about your zone over the phone. Please note it is mandatory to always keep clear of the hot zone. If this is not free, we still can install your hob until is safe, we just have to mention to you what needs to be changed in the future.

Just like with all gas appliances (in the case of the hob), the kitchen must have direct ventilation to an outside area. Our gas engineer will check the kitchen size and advise you if you need any extra space for ventilation. In 99% of the homes, the minimum ventilation requirement is correct. Contact us if you need more information about what this means, we’ll be happy to discuss it with you!

Can we have access to the gas meter? Please make sure we have clear access to the meter so we can do our mandatory testing.


Getting Ready For The Installation

We check the pipework condition and carry out a gas tightness inspection.

We verify the hob width. Luckily most hobs have a standard size so it will be the right fit for a replacement. That being said, most customers may have to select a hob with a width suitable for the spot where the old hob part will be placed.

We check the hot zones and ventilation requirements.

We install the appliance up to the newest building regulations.

We check and commission the device’s safety functions and electrical connections.

And the final step will be the gas tightness test and safety function check again.
