When purchasing a new cooking appliance you may wonder which is better, a gas cooker or an electric cooker.
Gas cookers are generally more expensive to purchase, because gas is cheaper to cook with, saving you money long term. A gas cooker installer is required to fit any gas appliance by law. The gas cooker installers must be Gas Safe Registered. A cooker installer will charge for fitting an appliance. However once the Gas Safe registered gas cooker installer fits your gas cooker, your annual cost for cooking will be less than an electric cooker by approximately £37.
