Modern appliances – like modern cars – are no longer simple machines with just a motor, belts, and a couple of moving parts. Today, appliances are highly sophisticated, digital systems with sensors, circuit boards, and wiring networks. Back in the day, appliance installation was a fairly straightforward process that could be done in a short period of time by just about any homeowner handy with a screwdriver. Not anymore.
Reasons to choose professional appliance installation include:
- Correct installation and programming for optimal appliance performance
- Minimized risk of injury and damage to the appliance from improper installation
- Fast, efficient, and safe installation by experienced and licensed professionals
- Convenient delivery of new appliance and removal of old one
Today, there’s a lot more to appliance installation than just moving a new appliance into place and plugging it in. For example, installing a dishwasher requires specific plumbing hook-ups and recently-required safety features. An improperly installed dishwasher could result in a major leak, causing costly water damage if not all the water inlet and drain lines are hooked up correctly.
New stoves require advanced electrical hook ups, which may not be apparent or even present in older kitchens. They also require safe and correct mounting and, depending on the make and model, some computer programming to set up certain functions and controls.
Gas appliance installation is even trickier. Installation of gas appliances should never be attempted by untrained individuals. Natural gas and propane are extremely flammable and if not handled properly, can cause injury and even death. Avoid gas leaks, potential carbon monoxide poisoning, and even explosions by trusting licensed professionals to install your gas appliances.
