Hiring a tradesman for a cooker hood installation
Cooker hoods are an important safety feature for modern kitchens. As well as extracting fumes and grease from your kitchen, they also dispose of heat and smoke, which helps to protect your kitchen from fires (and stop fire alarms from going off unnecessarily).

What do you need to know about cooker hood installation?
The first thing you will need to know about having a cooker hood installed is how to choose one that is the correct size for your kitchen. While there are no laws to decide on the size of a cooker hood, tradesmen recommend that you choose one that has at least the same width as your cooker, or it may not be powerful enough to do its job efficiently. Having said that, choosing one that is too large can also be an issue, as you may have to move or replace your kitchen units in order for it to fit.
Compared to other features, a cooker hood is relatively simple to install. As a result, your electrician may quote you their minimum callout fee for the job. If this is the case, do not try and argue your way around the price. The best thing that you can do is to find other odd jobs for your electrician to do, such as swapping an old plug socket to a USB model. This way, you can raise your quote to match their minimum callout fee in a way that benefits you.
