Leaving Existing Walls Intact
We bring the pipework down through the backs of cupboards or wardrobes, go through the wall and put an inlet in the wall on the other side, usually into the hall and living areas. The pipes are then connected up to the pipes either in your ceiling or under the floor, whichever is accessible and take them to where the power unit is to be located. This is usually in the garage, however if your garage is not attached to your home it can be hung in a cupboard as long as there is adequate ventilation. Or the power unit can be installed under your home, in the basement.
Removing Existing Wallboard
While the studs and nogs are exposed, before putting up new wallboard, we bring the pipes down through the nogs just like when installing into a new home. These get connected up with the rest of the pipework either in the ceiling or under the floor.
This part of the installation is like installing a system into a new home, we come in when the roof is on and before the batts are put in and wall board goes on. Around the same time as the electrician and plumber.
