What are the variables involved in new oven installation in Darwin?

When you ask us to install a new oven, we’ll supply and install the oven for you. We’ll pick up the oven for you, deliver it to site, prepare the location and isolate your old oven, then remove and replace. We also dispose of the old oven for you to the local recycling facility and pay the disposal fees as well.

So when you ask about the installation cost, or whether it’s worth a repair – there are a few variables. Service, delivery, costs and end result that works for you and what you need to achieve in the kitchen.

Things to think about before installing a new oven

The first question to ask is, are you changing from a wall oven to a free standing oven? If so, this will require a modification of the circuit and with Australian Standards this entails a modification of the switchboard as well. Australian Standards require any modified circuit to be fitted with a safety switch to protect against electric shock even if it’s an oven, hot water system, or any other cooking appliance.

Next, do you have a double or single appliance? And is it a like for like replacement?

A further question to consider is whether or not your oven is on a mixed power circuit currently or a dedicated circuit? If so, this may need a new circuit installed from the switchboard to the oven depending on what oven you buy. This can increase the oven installation cost.

Not all ovens are created equally. What oven have you chosen?

What type of oven do you really need for your family?

There are plenty of buying guides on the internet with information on brands and models, sizes and types such as Self cleaning type, but there are Conduction, Convection, Gas, Electric, Roaster, Toaster and Microwave and pyrolitic  just to name a few.

Some have all the bells and whistles you could ever need and others are just a box that heats your food.
