If your household appliances no longer function, you may decide a replacement makes more sense than yet another cycle of repairs. Even if your current devices still work, you may prefer a replacement with a different design approach or new technological features. You may need to purchase new appliances for a new, renovated, or remodeled home. In all these scenarios, you can count on the installation specialists at West Coast Chief Repair. A quarter of a century of experience, reasonable prices, and some of greater Los Angeles’ most generous labor and product warranties. We help make sure that the installation experience is both affordable and trouble-free.
Many electrical items that we use in the home just need plugging in, most people can work that out for themselves. A professional would be called in if a significant amount of fitting is required or if the equipment is delicate and needs some sort of calibration. Built-in appliances are obvious candidates that require professional fitting:
- Integrated cooktops and ovens
Some household appliances also require some kind of mechanical installation or plumbing:
- Garbage disposal units
- Gas ovens and cooktops
Others that need to be leveled off to prevent excessive noise or vibration:
- Washing machines
- Certain types of fridge
Our skills are not just confined to fixing items, we will fit them perfectly with optimal setup and tidy up after ourselves as if we were never there.
Chances are, you’ll have an old appliance that you’re replacing. Bulky items need specialist removal, a service we’re more than happy to provide. For no extra charge, we’ll take them all away and dispose of them in an environmentally conscious manner. That’s right, no more heavy lifting for our customers, it’s all part of the service.
Gas Appliance Installation
There are many rules and regulations relating to the installation of equipment that is powered by gas. The reasons for this are fairly obvious, an incompetent installer may cause, or leave the appliance prone to gas leaks, potentially causing an explosion.
All our Gas Appliance Fitting Engineers are fully qualified in all fields of gas appliance management. They will handle all you potentially hazardous devices with care and diligence many have come to rely on from West Coast Chief Repair.
What Do You Do if You Discover a Gas Leak?
Natural gas is odorless, the smell is added artificially. Sometimes the odor fades, so don’t just rely on your sense of smell. If you see any signs that you’ve discovered a gas leak:
- Immediately evacuate the area
- Call 911 or your local gas supplier – Socal Gas in LA
- Do not turn any electrical device on or off – including the lights
- Do not provide any other sources of ignition like cigarettes or naked flames
Electric Appliance Installation
The risks from gas are obvious but some electrical items pose significant safety issues too. Apart from the obvious risk of electric shock from any badly wired devices, there are other consequences to consider. Heavy-duty kitchen equipment like cookers and electric cooktops run at an increased load and overloading plug sockets can lead to electrical fires. Fires caused by electrical devices are one of the most common reasons the Fire Department is called out. Ways to avoid this include:
- Check wiring regularly, especially if it’s more than a few years old
- Ensure the sockets have no hot or scorched areas that indicate overheating
- Turn all unused devices off
- Don’t overload sockets or extension cables
All of our installation technicians have the training and qualifications to carry out the required tasks, from a Hand Held Whisk to an Electric Range. We will keep all the wiring safe that we provide as well as looking out for any potential hazards with the setup of your older wiring.
We aim to provide our customers with the full package. Installation is the first stage in the working relationship we have with our clientele. We are here for the long haul, taking you step by step through all the ups and downs of running a modern household. At West Coast Chief Repair we pride ourselves on our high client retention rate over our quarter of a century in business. Call us today and join the growing number of long-term customers.

“We’ve had nothing but fantastic experiences with WCC. Serge did an outstanding job reinstalling our furnace and AC unit to bring them up to code and Valerri got to the bottom of the issue with our washer/dryer and refrigerator quickly when techs other companies could not resolve them. These guys are definitely the best in the business and I would recommend them to anyone.”
