Appliance Installation-Should I Call Experts?

The internet provides do-it-yourself appliance repairs and installation help for homeowners looking to skip the professional help and save some money. Although DIYs are quick and cost-effective, not every appliance installation should be done without an expert. Before you purchase your next appliance, keep in mind these tips to help you figure out when it’s best to call an expert to install your new appliance, and when you can do it yourself.

Know when it’s best to call a professional or DIY

Minor Installation: DIY

The best DIY installations also happen to be the easiest: electric appliances. Why pay for an appliance installation that only calls for a simple plug in? Minor installations can safely be done solo.

Plug in appliances take many forms:

  • Refrigerator
  • Stove
  • Washer
  • Dryer

Enjoy your new appliance in under a couple of minutes! Of course, some companies may include unwrapping and installation of your appliance. Whether it’s not included or you’d rather do it yourself, a plug-in appliance is quick and easy to install- help or no help!

Gas Line Installation: Expert Installation 

Expertise is especially necessary for an appliance installation that requires running gas or power lines. Due to the intricacy of the job, and detailed skillset need to do so, it’s best to leave this type of work to the pros. To refrain from safety hazards dealing with flammable gas and other materials, keep you and your family safe by calling in a professional.

Hire a professional to install your appliance that requires natural or propane gas, such as with:

  • Stoves
  • Dryers
  • Refrigerators
  • Washers

You’ll need someone to install, pressure test, and verify that it’s safe. However, you can always plug in an electric one yourself.
