I'm rather deaf phone calls dont work well for me
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 7 days ago.

The phone call is optional and the offer is system generated, so you can just ignore it.

Are you thinking of doing the installation yourself, or will you be getting the engineer back to do it?

I was thinking of doing this myself
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 6 days ago.

OK. I recommend that you follow the installation manual, and let me know if any questions arise.
