Dual fuel installation
information

All of our engineers are Gas Safe registered and electrically trained, so you know you’re getting the job done properly, and to a high and safe standard. Our expert team will disconnect your old appliance if you need them to.

A note about serious stuff

Attempting to install a gas appliance yourself could potentially be very dangerous, and could invalidate your warranty.

All gas work must legally be completed by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

What we'll do*

  • Unpack and inspect your new appliance

  • Check that the area you want your new appliance installed is safe

  • Disconnect your old appliance if required

  • Safely connect it to any existing gas pipes

  • Test that it works

What we need you to do

Before our engineers connect your appliance, there are a few things we’ll need you to check so the installation can go ahead. (Please see the reverse). If these things aren’t checked, unfortunately we may not be able to install.

If you’ve any questions about our service, we’re on hand to help -
just call 0344 463 9705 (option 2).

Hot Zone

Is the ‘Hot Zone’ area clear of flammable materials such as wallpaper, wood, electrical switches, overhanging boilers, cupboards or shelving?

Is there enough of a gap between your cooker or hob and anything above it (usually a minimum of 75cm) and clear space either side of your hob (usually a minimum of 9cm)?

Ventilation

Is there enough room to allow for ventilation around the back and sides of your new appliance, and is there a window or door direct to the outside of the property in the room?

Correct Electrical Connection*

Our engineers will ensure the size of your electric circuit is suitable for the appliance you have bought.

Britannia range cookers require a standard cooker circuit with a double pole isolation switch within 1.2m of the installation location.

Gas supply*

A ½” self sealing bayonet connector should be located in the position where the cooker is to be sited. (see diagram)

Britannia range cookers can be converted to LPG, please inform the manufacturer of your requirement.

*Any work required may be chargeable
