New appliances are very popular gifts. Kitchen appliances often go on sale in January, as do washing machines and dryers. If you’ve recently acquired new appliances or you’re planning to, odds are you’re wondering about NYC appliance installation. How does one get the new fridge out of of the box and hooked up? What’s the procedure for hooking up a new gas stove? Who should you have hook up your appliances?
Many home stores and appliance retailers have installation teams. These teams are generally staffed by the lowest-bidding contractor: it is up to you to decide if you want to trust your appliances and the safety of your home to someone who was chosen on that criteria, rather than on experience, professionalism, and the quality of the appliance installation.
If those factors matter to you, you’ll want to have your appliance installation performed by a licensed NYC plumber. New stove installation may require installing or moving gas lines, or, as is most common, hooking the new stove to the existing gas lines safely. New refrigerators and dishwashers need to be integrated into a home’s electrical and plumbing system. All work must be done to city standards, with energy efficiency and water conservation being top concerns of many homeowners.
Other good things to know about new appliance installation is that it’s always a good idea to keep the instruction manual and warranty information. If these are available online right now, download a copy into your documents storage system: you may not need to look at this information for many years, but it is nice to have handy should you need it. Also be willing to give the instruction manual a quick scan prior to using your new appliance. Even if you think you’re more than familiar with how the kitchen stove works, for example, your new stove may have unique features or settings you’ll want to know about.
