The Basics of Installing an Electrical Circuit for an Electric Stove
- To upgrade from a gas stove to an electric stove a new dedicated electric circuit will need to be installed.
- Typically this will be a 240 volt 50 amp 4-wire dedicated circuit.
- The cost to install the new circuit will depend greatly on the home and the location of the kitchen in relation to where the electrical panel is located.
- Next the cost to install the stove circuit will depend on the available access or method that will be required to install the circuit from the panel to the location of the stove.
- In order to give an accurate estimated cost to install the stove circuit a visit to the home will be necessary by a qualified electrician who can accurately evaluate the extent of the project based upon all the factors as mentioned above, and including evaluating the available capacity of the electrical service of the home.
