Oven Installation Costs

Indoor Cost Guides      Kitchen Designers      Oven Installation Costs

Installing a new oven has a lot of variable cost factors. Retail pricing for ovens varies significantly based on the type of oven, the installation method or type of unit, and other features. Freestanding ranges are the most affordable, which include a stovetop and an oven with the option of gas or electric as the heat source. Wall ovens are popular, as well, but installing these will be slightly more costly.

Some people want to upgrade to commercial or high-end ovens and ranges, which can easily quadruple the cost of a new oven installation based on the price of the unit alone. Electric ranges are generally cheaper than gas models, but electricity usually costs more than natural gas as a fuel source, so that often balances things out.

Item Cost
New oven - Gas $600-$1,000
New oven - Electric $400-$800
Installation labor $150-$250
Additional materials and supplies $50-$100
Old appliance removal/Disposal $40-$120
Total cost $1,240-$2,270

Other considerations and costs

  • In the event that you need a new outlet or gas line installed for the oven or range, this will add additional costs to your project.
  • Permits are generally not required for appliance installation, but if major gas or electrical work is needed, you should ask your appliance installation professional whether there are any special requirements.
  • Many appliance retailers will offer free delivery and haul away of old appliances, which can save you a couple of hundred dollars if you can find the oven that you like at a store or online retailer that offers this service.
  • This estimate is for residential oven installation. Commercial installation requires different materials and tools and will be an entirely different project. The costs here are regarding installing a new oven in your home.
  • High-end ranges and ovens are available that cost as much as $2,500 or more for a single oven or combination range unit. The installation costs will be similar but choosing a top-of-the-line model will increase your total budget significantly.

DIY considerations

  • Installation of a freestanding range that includes an oven and stove is fairly simple and can generally be handled by a moderately skilled DIYer. If you have a wall oven or a specialty unit, such as a convection or industrial-quality residential unit, you might want to hire a professional to do the work.
  • Make sure that you turn off the gas to the appliance before uninstalling and replacing your gas-powered oven unit. Quick-connect hoses generally make this a DIY-approved project but working with natural gas is dangerous and you need to make sure you are working safely.
  • You may be able to get rid of your old range or oven yourself by sitting it on the curb or posting an online ad for free appliances for junk if you can’t find a free haul-away option.
