Boiler installations can be complex, as each home's heating system is unique. It's essential to prepare for your installation and set your expectations regarding what will happen when your engineer arrives. This guide will help you pre-installation to ensure a smooth and hassle-free boiler installation experience with Padly.

Ensure a clear area around the boiler

Before your engineer arrives, make sure the area around your boiler is clear. This includes checking that there are no obstructions in the vicinity, especially around the flue. A clean, clear working space ensures the installation process can proceed without delays or safety concerns. it will also ensures your boiler engineer doesn't have to move anything that belongs to you that may be of importance minimising the risk of misplacing items or breaking them all together.

Prepare your home

Boiler installations can get a bit messy and noisy, especially if it's a complex job. Here's how to handle it:

Protection: Think of it as protecting your valuables. Cover precious items or surfaces near the work area with plastic sheeting or drop cloths to protect them from any dust or excess material that may find itself floating about post installation.

Noise considerations: If you've got family members, pets, or neighbours who aren't fans of loud noises, let your engineer know. They can try to keep it down, plan accordingly, or make you aware in advance when the installation might start to get loud so you can vacate to a quieter area.

Ventilation: Make sure the area has good airflow, this could be as simple as ensure a door is open to your garage, or opening surrounding windows in nearby rooms to where the installation is taking place. This helps disperse any fumes or smells that might pop up during the installation.

Clear some space for your engineer

To speed up the installation process, ensure that the engineer has enough room and space to work comfortably. Clear the area around the boiler and remove any obstacles or clutter  especially near the boiler. Tools, boxes, or household items – they need to go.

Think of it as creating a clear runway for your engineer, a clutter-free environment allows the engineer to complete the installation efficiently, safely and quickly.

Additional considerations
