Looking to spend between £100-£200

Looking to find out how much it could cost to be honest.
Does the cooker hood fit the wall unit?
Is the circuit configured so BS7671 allows a spur to be taken from it?
Do you have 30mA RCD protection, so cables are permitted to be buried in wall less than 50mm, without the need of mechanical protection?
If so, does the RCD tripping times comply to BS7671?
How deep are the skins of the wall?
What is the wall fabric made up of?
At what height would the installer be working externally?
What route would be required, so the cable can be routed within the permitted safe zones, if buried less than 50mm within wall?
Is the existing circuit safe to connect to?
Do you expect any remedial work to be carried out?

What's your location?? Your profile says United Kingdom and that's quite a big place.

The costs in Chelsea are very different to somewhere like Stoke (sorry Stoke).
Location: South Devon
Height: ground floor
Space Available: yes
Electrics: im afraid i have no idea! Its a normal wall socket at placed above the kitchen cupboards, inside cover - two black cables, two red cables, two yellow/green cables
Unfortunately as you will have noticed by my post, there are so many variables and possible issues, that it would be impossible to tell you the cost without a friendly visit to access the task!
From its name this is a DIY site.

This is a DIY job

1. Determine where the hood will go, mark where the extract duct will be
2. cut a hole in teh wall.Either stitch drill and chisel it out, or hire a core drill.
3.Fit the hood where you want it to be and screw it to the wall/cupboards.
4. Fit some duct to suit
5. Put a plug on the end of the wire and fit a 3amp fuse into the plug.
6. Insert the plug into the socket in the cupboard.

Job done.

That saved you £100-200 in South Devon. Or move to Chelsea and save yourself £800!! :LOL:
