Technology has entered every aspect of our lives. Today, you can get smart appliances for your kitchen! Camera enabled refrigerators allow you to check whether or not you’re really out of guava juice simply by glancing at your smartphone; trendy new steam ovens now broadcast a live feed of your food as it cooks. Whether you’re a gourmet chef or an absolute expert at heating up frozen pizza, these new smart kitchen appliances open up entire new realms of culinary possibilities.
Be aware that smart appliance installation can be a little more complicated than adding a plug and play component to your computer. Even if you’re familiar with technology, dealing with the many facets of smart appliance installation can be intimidating. In addition to the electronic components, some smart appliances use natural gas. Additionally, smart faucets, dishwashers, refrigerators and even stoves and ovens may need to have water supply lines and drainage pipes installed in order to work.
Be aware that this type of installation in New York City requires working with a licensed plumber. If your appliance store tells you they handle installation for you, ask to make sure their crew includes a licensed plumber. This is to protect your interests: you want to be sure that all work is done according to current codes and regulations. You want to work with a New York City plumber who has experience. Many times appliances are shipped only with the fittings needed for a standard installation: when the homeowner has a non-standard situation, an inexperienced installation team won’t necessarily know what to do – and any efforts they make to try to ‘make it fit’ could make things even worse.
If you’re considering upgrading your appliances, choose your plumber ahead of time. Scheduling installation calls ahead of time means you have the maximum flexibility in your schedule – no worry about trying to find someone while the delivery guy is waiting to drop off your new stove or refrigerator!
