It’s an expensive item and the impact it will have on your home will be significant, so careful consideration should be taken before making the investment. An Aga will completely change the way you and your family use your kitchen and cook your food, so you need to understand whether or not it’s right for you. They can be expensive to maintain and generally need to be kept on at all times. There are timing systems that can help with this, and some people choose to turn their Agas off during the summer months, but for this you would need a spare cooker.
