Closing On a New Home and Looking to Replace the Electric Stove with Gas or Liquid Pr


Hello everyone. My wife and I are in the process of purchasing a new home and everything in the home works for us except the electric cooktop. We are curious at what the expected cost aside from the stove should range from. Also we are interested in eventually remodeling the kitchen altogether and if we started the process slowly would would be the best thing to begin with? Sorry for the mix mosh of question and topics in one post.

Besides the length of run from the tank outside into the house where the stove is what would influence the price?

How much drywall/tile do they have to break up to reach the kitchen with a gas line? Are you willing to fix the drywall yourself, or are you asking them to bring in a pipefitter on Monday to run the line, a drywall guy on Tuesday/Wednesday to patch the holes, and a painter on Thursday and Friday to repaint?

I think RJ's estimate is a bulls-eye, considering the information supplied.

Any other appliance going to be added to the gas line?
Where your located.
Who installs the lines, plumbing, plumber, gas company.
What type tank you have installed.
Only way to know the price is to make the calls and get local pricing.
Most places will want to see a permit and have it inspected.

As an aside, I think the clearance to a range hood from an open flame stove are different (greater) than for an electric. It may be something to take into consideration.

Yes, there is currently a Microwave with an integrated exhaust vent above the electric range. I would be removing that and placing a professional exhaust vent only so I have some room to work with.
