Question Gas Fire Replacement..... COST ?

To replace a outset gas fire in living room for another outset gas fire ! (mrs wants a change)

Would require new pipe from gas tap to fire(.5 metre run) and all the necessary checks carrying out.

Just want a rough guide before i get someone in so i know they aint ripping me off!!

Cheers WW

I had a new pipe run in the kitchen for a gas hob. I was just a T from an existing pipe. I lifted the floor and from memory supplied the pipe and i think the cost was in the region of 40.

For fires i'd look on screwfix for a rough idea of cost.

C_B_B, something tells me it gonna cost a lot more than 40 quid to connect a new fire......

From what i have been told the gas fitter has to register the appliance/work and check all
other gas apppliances before he can sign the job off as safe, as its all
something to do with the HIPs but, this is only what i have heard but im sure
someone on here can shed a bit more light on this.

We've just had a new inset gas fire (removing and 'outset')and paid something like 230 for 'standard' fitting charge. We had 2 quotes - one from a person we have known for years and one from a new compnay - they were both similar.


However, the 'standard fit' covered knocking out the hole in the wall - which was previously only 2 'letterbox' openings, extending and hiding in the wall/concrete floor the gas pipe, fitting the fire and surround and making good any localised damage.

Oh, and the company was Blazes - we were very pleased with their work.
