A professional is required to install an electric range when more than a swap for a similar range is needed. When installation requires an electrical connection that does not meet the 240-volt requirements, it is important that the installation is performed correctly by a certified professional to eliminate safety hazards.
Installing an electric range is a relatively quick job for a professional to complete. In most cases, the installation can be complete within two hours when electrical outlets do not require an upgrade or rewiring. The professional can prevent severe safety issues such as fire or electrocution that occur as a result of improper installation.
