Electric oven installation and oven repairs: 5 ways we can help

Your kitchen is one of the busiest areas of your house, so we know how important it is to have your cooking appliances working correctly. In this month’s blog we will discuss the importance of correct installation of your electrical cooking appliances and ways we can help you with your electric oven installation. 

The perks of professional induction cooktop installation

Adding a new cooktop to your kitchen can elevate your whole cooking experience, but it should be done professionally. Along with your heating and cooling system, your electrical oven is an important kitchen appliance. Incorrect cooktop installation and oven repairs can lead to safety risks, such as electric fires. 

When considering electric oven installation, your kitchen’s electrical safety should be left to a professional electrical contractor in Melbourne. This also includes replacing an old cooktop with a new model and making necessary oven repairs.

Professional electricians follow safety regulations and know how to handle lighting, ventilation and wiring. Let’s examine the top reasons why it is better to leave electric oven installation to a professional:

  • Ensure quality work: If you hire an unlicensed electrician for oven installation, you won’t be sure if they are up-to-date on quality standards in Victoria. This in turn will put you and the people using your appliance at risk when using the oven. 
  • Avoid voiding the manufacturer’s warranty: A new induction cooktop comes with a manufacturer’s warranty, which can be voided if it is not installed by a professional. So, it’s not worth risking the long-term use of your oven for any shortcut.
  • Comply with industry regulations: Changes in state and industry standards are common. Only a professional can help you keep up with the latest changes, ensuring that your induction cooktop installation will comply with new standards. 
  • Make hazard-free repairs: Since an oven is an electrical appliance, repairs need to be done attentively to avoid possible hazards. This is where a licensed electrician can help take the right approach to repair it.
