Product Specifications and Installation Documents
Product specifications and installation instructions are available through most manufacturers’ websites. Arnolds Appliance Inc. will assist you in acquiring these documents. It is the responsibility of the customer or of the customer’s representative or contractors to verify that the product they have selected will fit in its intended location as specified in these documents and that they have the proper power, utilities connections, venting and waist provisions located as specified in these documents. Arnolds Appliance standard installation services provide hookups to existing utilities meeting the specified requirements only and do not provide modifications or replacement of these existing utilities. Arnolds Appliance may be able to perform certain types of modifications for an additional fee while others may require you to hire a specialist.
Site Preparation and Access
Before scheduling installation all cabinets and countertops must be installed and all electrical and plumbing services must be live, meet current codes and be located per product specifications. There must be a clear, solid and safe access of sufficient size for the mobilization of your new appliance to and throughout the home along the intended path to the location of installation. Both interior and exterior steps must be available. We cannot cross ditches or haul product on planks. Arnolds Appliance can remove most interior doors with pin style hinges if needed. The removal of stairway handrails is not included in our standard installation service. Snow and debris must be removed from driveways and walkways. Bushes and trees encroaching on pathways can damage product. You may be asked to sign a waiver against damage if our only access is through tight, narrow areas or encroaching shrubbery where we may not be able to insure against damage.
Before the installation of ventilation equipment all reinforcement and backing material must be in place, all ducting as well as electrical power must be installed, properly sized and located as specified in the manufacturer’s documents. There must be sufficient access to make the required connections. Many local codes now require make up air at specific air volumes. These code requirements vary by location and interpretation is best left up to HVAC specialists. Arnolds Appliance may recommend products with air volumes that have been accepted without make up air by building inspectors in the past however these air volumes may not meet the levels recommended by the manufacturers of the cooking products you may have chosen. Arnolds Appliance accepts no responsibility for the performance of underpowered ventilation or of the acceptance by building inspectors if higher power ventilation is chosen.
Arnolds Appliance can provide delivery and installation at the same time many other trades are working however there must be sufficient and safe access to roll products into and around the home. We cannot gain access over freshly poured concrete, over concrete forms, while flooring is being laid or while spray painting interiors or finishing hardwood floors. Please schedule our deliveries accordingly.
