Do You Need an Electrician to Install a Rangehood?

 

A range hood will ensure that the air in your kitchen is both clean and safe. While you could possibly install the range hood yourself, an electrician will be faster and more effective, eliminating mistakes and ensuring the safety of you and your family.

A vented rangehood with ducting and large extractors may also need extra carpentry or cabinet work to complete the installation. CLF Services can advise you on what additional labour will be required when they quote for the job.

Requirements

It is recommended that removable grease collectors and light should be included as standard features when you get a new rangehood. When installing your rangehood, ensure that there is a specific distance above your cooktop. The minimum distance will vary based on whether your stove is electric or gas.

If you are wondering how much extraction is needed, this will vary based on several factors:

  • How often do you cook
  • The type of food you cook
  • The size of the room
  • Whether you have a gas or electric stove

Cost of Installing a Rangehood

The cost of installing a range hood will vary based on different factors. For instance, the price of a fixed rangehood and a slide-out unit will not be the same. Electrical connections and ducting will have a separate charge.
