Rules for gas stove installation
It would not be an exaggeration to say that in every kitchen, regardless of its filling with appliances, the main and central place remains behind the stove. In most cases, housewives prefer gas models, since, unlike electric stoves, they heat up faster, are more economical and more durable to use, and modern modifications equipped with gas leak sensors and an automatic ignition system are also safer. Installing a gas stove is a process that is not so technically complex as it requires increased care and accuracy. It is better to entrust the installation or replacement of a gas stove to professional plumbers. Call Right Heating plumbing company now at 0208 539 6346 and schedule an in home consultation.
If the replacement of the gas stove in the kitchen is performed simultaneously with the repair of the room, then it may be necessary to move it to another place. It is important to observe the following rules for installing the plate:
- The maximum allowable distance from the device to the gas supply pipe is 4 meters, ideally no more than 2.
- The room should be well-functioning exhaust ventilation.
- Modern units contain the functions of electric ignition and oven lighting, so a grounding outlet should be provided nearby. If a model with an electric oven is chosen, then it is necessary to draw a separate power line using a 3 × 5 cable from the switchboard (with installation of an additional UZO 16 A).
A flexible hose is used to connect the plate with the gas pipeline (different from the plumbing line by the yellow marks on the sheath), the maximum length of which is 5 m, and the inner diameter is more than 10 mm.
