Gas Work Question
How much will it cost to replace a built-in electric hob with a gas one?
The GCH boiler is 2m away. I'd like to replace the electric oven with gas too but not until it breaks down! thanks
Current builiding regs and boiler requirements demand a certain volume of gas to your boiler. if you don't have a 22mm gas supply to your boiler, you may not be able to simply T off a supply for your hob. The danger is that when you demand gas to the hob that you can starve the boiler, resulting in the boiler burning very ineffeciently or even cutting out. Who ever you get to do your gas works, make sure that they check theses pressures. If that is all ok then i would suggest around £150 - £200 all in is more realistic. If your hob is cut into worktop then make sure the dimensions of your new gas hob are at least the same size as your electric hob or bigger. Most single hob cut outs are around 575mm wide and 496mm deep +/- 20mm. good luck.

This all depends on the location of the gas supply to be used and the size of the replacement hob,

just wanted to comment on what an excellent response from gogreenheating.
100 % correct, Gas supply volume and pressure critical !
Costs, depending on site survey, £ 75.00 ? Unlikely !,
