When you begin budgeting for a kitchen update or simply replacing older kitchen appliances with more efficient ENERGY STAR models, remember that the team at Lumberjack Electric is here to help. In most cases, there will be minimal rewiring needed in your Anoka or Bloomington home if you are only replacing the appliances in their existing locations. However, if the location changes or the size is drastically different, you should budget to increase the installation cost and possible renovations to your cabinetry and counter surfaces.
Looking At Average Installation Cost
Homeadvisor.com has calculated that the average kitchen appliance installation price is $196. However, this is only for appliances installed in the exact location, and there is no need to alter or add to the existing hookups. The price will significantly increase when you need updated or upgraded wiring, plumbing, or ductwork. Alterations to the cabinetry or flooring will also add to the cost and the time required for the install process.
The Common Appliance Installations For Your Kitchen
When you think about upgrading kitchen appliances, it sounds like a simple project that should be fast and affordable. However, as you begin counting the number of items, it becomes more shocking and costly. Many homeowners are shocked when they find they are looking at half a dozen installations which can include:
- Refrigerator – $150 - $250
- Dishwasher - $200 - $500
- Stove Or Range - $100 - $500
- Microwave - $115 - $500
- Range Hood - $300 - $500
- Exhaust Fan - $120 - $235
Why Opt For Professional Kitchen Appliance Installation?
Seeing the price estimates for appliance installation, you might be wondering why so many people are “wasting” nearly $1,000 or more to have their new appliances installed. And the answer is twofold. First, few places still deliver newly purchased appliances for free. So you are going to spend $50 or more per unit to have them dropped off in your driveway if you cannot transport them yourself. After moving a fridge and oven, you could begin to look at the $50 delivery fee as a bargain. Or you could work with a professional who will deliver and install the items, such as Lumberjack Electric.
The second reason that many homeowners choose to use a professional for their new appliance installation is professionalism. When you use the free delivery and set up or do it yourself, there can be some questions about the quality of the workmanship or other issues such as damage. If you accidentally damage the floor or countertop during an appliance installation, you are also going to absorb the cost of the repair, either as another DIY project or paying a professional.
When you hire a pro like Lumberjack Electric, they are responsible for any damage they cause. But the better news is that these professionals install appliances every day. They know the correct processes and don’t make the same mistakes you might make after a frustrating day struggling to get your kitchen reassembled. So make the wise investment. Call 612-236-9052 and trust the pros at Lumberjack Electric for all your appliance installations.
