So, you’ve finally made the decision to ditch cable and choose DirecTV—congratulations! DirecTV brings with it a number of great benefits and people all across America have discovered just how easy it is to get the entertainment they love from this easy-to-use service. But, before you can start channel surfing and downloading your favorite movies, you’ll need to make an appointment with DirecTV installers in San Bernardino County.
Making sure your home is ready to accept a DirecTV installation is a great way to make sure the process goes off smoothly and without any problems. But what exactly should you be doing to make sure everything is prepped and ready for your new dish? Here’s a quick rundown of what you can and should do prior to your appointment with DirecTV installers in San Bernardino County:
Outside your home
First things first: make sure your roof is easily accessible and that there’s nothing in the way of an installation technician when it comes to actually mounting the dish. This means clearing any debris off of your roof and making sure there’s a safe and secure place for a ladder to be rested.
An installation technician will thoroughly survey the exterior of your home to determine optimal dish placement, so it’s a good idea to make sure that they can do so without any problems.
Inside your home
There are a few key things you need to do inside your home before your installation appointment. First and foremost, you need to make sure that all of your televisions are accessible. If a technician has to move things around or fight to get behind your TVs, its going to slow down the process tremendously. Moving your TVs away from walls and out of entertainment centers is going to expedite the installation process.
Next, make sure you designate which rooms are receiving a DirecTV Genie and make this clear to your installation technician. This will also expedite the installation process and ensure you have the capabilities you want in the room you want them in.
Finally—and this is an obvious item—make sure there’s a adult present at all times for the duration of the installation. DirecTV installers in San Bernardino County may have questions for you or could have to explain part of the installation and it’s best to have someone on hand, there to receive that information.
Completing the process
If you take the time to observe the simple steps above to prepare your home for an installation, it’ll go smoothly and leave you satisfied with the result! Keep in mind that every installation is different and that you installer may need to add or remove steps in the installation process to accommodate your home, which can increase or decrease the amount of time an installation takes to complete.
