If a consumer is not confident in his ability to install a slide-in range safely and correctly, he should hire a professional to perform the installation. However, slide-in range installation is relatively simple if the consumer has the proper tools and knowledge.
Consumers often do not have the proper tools to complete a slide-in range installation. Instead of purchasing all of the necessary tools just for a one-time use, consumers can hire a professional. Another advantage to hiring a professional to install a slide-in range is that the professional is more likely to install the range correctly, avoiding problems with the performance of the appliance and hazards to the consumer's safety.
