Why Electric Cooker Installations Should Be Left To The Professionals

When it comes to having an electric cooker installed in your home or business, it is advisable to have someone who has the appropriate status and qualifications do it. This is especially true where a whole new electrical circuit needs to be installed for it. However, that is not to say that anyone who is a competent DIYer cannot attempt the task of installing an electric cooker in Norwich.

Preparation For Electric Cooker Installations Is Key

The average electric cooker draws a large amount of power, more so than a conventional gas cooker, due to the fact that they produce a much more intense level of heat that is more widely distributed.

Because of this, it is important to make sure that the fuse used is large enough (at least 13 amps), that the cable is heat resistant and thick, and that there is a switch that is both double pole isolating and easily accessible.

Wiring An Electric Cooker in Wymondham

Wiring an electric cooker is not actually too dissimilar from wiring a plug. It is important to ensure that the source of power to the cooker is switched off at the mains and that the circuit cable is fed into the control unit. The very end of the circuit cable needs to be stripped prior to bringing the cooker into place and hooking everything up. Once complete, switch the mains power back on and the cooker should be fully working.
