Yesterday was installation day. As promised, the crew of 2 showed up around 8 a.m. ready to go.
Before starting, I gave them a tour of the current system, showed them the electrical panel, and the current equipment. Then they prepared to start work by making sure that they didn’t do any type of damage to the house. They even covered the steps down into the basement:
Here is what they had to deal with removing:
They brought the new equipment in their trailer and started right in to the removal process, having the old system completely removed within a couple of hours.
They worked hard, without breaks (even for lunch):
By about 3 p.m. they were ready to clean up and quit for the day, having put in a grueling 7 hour day, not counting their loading and driving time (probably 3 hours total). Here is how things ended at the end of day 1:
In all, the day went well. The installers were very hard workers, seemed to know their stuff, and answered all of my questions. Next, day 2 will finish up the installation and we’ll hope that everything works without a hitch.
