The above cost overview indicates that the costs of connecting an induction hob are on average between €80 - €150. However, this price applies if you are already cooking on induction. If you are currently using electric or gas for cooking, then more labour is needed to make your kitchen cook-ready. Are you already cooking on induction? Then the professional can easily remove the old induction cooktop and attach the new one to it.
It is a more expensive and different story if you cook on electric or gas. Then an electrician is needed in addition to the professional. This is because they have to check whether your distribution board is ready for cooking on induction. It is also better to let an electrician do the connecting of the induction stove.
If you already cook on induction, it is good to know that you can hand in your old induction stove. This can be done at an environmental street. But you can also discuss with the professional whether he or she can hand it in for you. This often involves disposal costs. Another possibility is to ask if you can hand in your old induction cooktop. Then consider the store where you are buying the new induction cooktop.
