How Much Does It Cost To Install A Gas Cooktop?
Gas Cooktop Installation Costs
The cooktop is an essential element in the kitchen, and homeowners may opt for electric or gas-powered cooktops. Induction cooktops are only now emerging as an option, too. Many lean towards the gas option because gas ring cooking offers the greatest amount of control over the results, and is considered a more affordable means of cooking in the home.
The cost of installing a gas cooktop varies based on a number of factors, including whether or not there is an oven, the number of burners to be installed, the need to remove old equipment, and so on.
Your costs can also vary depending on the installer you select; with a well-known company offering optimal service typically costing more than installation from a lesser-known provider.

Other considerations and costs
- Costs can vary depending on the installer you choose.
- Additionally, you may find it necessary to run gas lines, which itself is not a DIY project under most local building codes and laws. To convert from electric to gas is not a challenging task, but the need for the lines to be run, installation to be done, and a tank to be installed averages at around $450 or more.
- Ventilation is also a concern, and most cooktops have self-installed ventilation units, but if there is no ductwork or no proper ventilation, this must also be added to the total price of the project.
- It is possible to have a lot of extras added to a gas cooktop installation, including LED displays, digital touch controls, and an automatic reignition feature. The latter is the ultimate safety feature and comes at a cost of roughly $600.
- Costs do not reflect the need to remove existing gear, repairing the cabinetry box or framework on which the cooktop rests, or ensuring that electrical as well as gas supplies are in compliance with local and current codes.
- If you are lacking adequate skill and experience, it is best to forget any DIY efforts and simply hire a contractor or installer that specializes in this task.
