Induction hobs do tend to cost a little more than conventional models and this will obviously impact upon the final cost of an installation job. Many electricians will be happy to advise on types of hobs, energy efficiency and models, although most will simply work with the model you have decided to purchase.
Most hobs are non-standard in size and shape, so some preparation work may need to be done to fit the hob into your worktop. If the hob is to be placed in a new worktop then this will obviously need to be cut to fit the hob. Get your kitchen fitter to do this if you can, as this will save both time and money when it comes to installation by the electrician.
It should be a fairly simple task for the electrician to fit and set up your electrical induction hob. The main part of the job is hooking it up to the supply, adding any sockets and switches and making any adjustments to the wiring or fuse box. Always remember that only iron-based pans will work on an induction hob. You can test if your old pans will work by seeing if a magnet will be attracted to them. If the magnet sticks then the pan will work on your new induction hob.
