How Much Does Microwave Oven Installation Cost?

You do not need any help to take a microwave oven out of its box and place it somewhere on your counter and plug it in. That being said, with counter space always at a premium, most kitchen configurations call for microwave ovens to be mounted somewhere rather than just placed on a countertop. Microwave oven installation is far more complicated and challenging than it may seem at first glance. Because costs for the work are usually so affordable, it is definitely not the sort of project you would want to take on without the help of a professional.

When you get a pro in your home to handle your microwave oven installation, the first thing they will do is cut off the power to your kitchen to ensure there is no risk of electrical shock during the install process.

They will also make sure that there is adequate space between the bottom of your microwave and the top of your range top which is provided as a suggestion by your microwave oven manufacturer, but sometimes also as a legal requirement by your local code enforcement authority.

How Much Will It Cost To Install a Microwave Oven?

  • The actual cost to install a microwave oven will definitely vary a bit from one situation to the next but a high number to figure is £460 and your best case scenario will only be £77.
  • For the average microwave oven installation, the price to expect is just £150. When you consider how much it can cost to replace drywall, paint, and a backsplash in the case of a botched DIY project, hiring a local professional seems like the only sensible route.
  • There are certainly many benefits for any homeowner who chooses to mount a microwave oven, either over countertop or over a range. The mounted setup will make very efficient use of your kitchen space. Consider comparing quotes from local pros before hiring. This always ensures a quality installation and value for money.

    The importance of recruiting a professional for your microwave oven installation is paramount, especially when you consider the aspect of ventilation. Any microwave oven that is mounted over a range top will have a ventilation fan included in it.

    That fan does absolutely no good without the proper in-wall ductwork. Imprecise cuts or poorly run ducts can not only make ventilation ineffectual but potentially also create health concerns. Microwave oven installation is also a job that happens quickly, often only in a few hours. This means you will get the benefit without having to lose a whole day with work crews stomping all over your home.
