7(2): Before the boiler is installed, the engineer flushes the old heating system using a chemical agent to break down dirt and debris and then will drain the existing system where necessary and any visible and redundant materials will be removed and taken away.
7(3): The engineer will test and adjust the controls of the boiler and leave the system in proper working order and will perform any necessary safety assessments and where possible ensure that you understand how to use the boiler controls before he leaves your home.
7(4): The engineer will carry out all the wiring of the boiler and controls to the existing electrical system. If any additional major electrical assistance is required, the Customer is responsible for instructing an electrician at their own expense. If the installation can not be completed because of any major electrical issue the Company may charge the customer cost of the re-visit to complete the installation or commissioning of the boiler.
7(5): The engineer carries out a gas tightness/soundness test to check if the gas supply is safe. If the engineer finds a leak or defect within the existing gas pipework then he is required to condemn the supply or take steps to make the supply safe or repipe the supply before installation. This work may be charged additionally and shall be discussed with the Customer prior to installation. Should the customer decline or refuse to get a gas pipe upgrade, they are entitled to a refund deducting the call-out fee of the engineer.
7(6): The engineer will terminate the condensate pipe from the boiler internally to avoid freezing but where this is not possible, he will install an appropriately sized pipe and connect it to the nearest drain outside. Soakaways and condensate pumps are the last resort and may be subjected to additional charges if the customer does not mention the nonexistence of any drain or drain pipe near the boiler location during the ordering process.
7(7): The engineer on completion fills the new system and ensures that a corrosion proofer is present (inhibitor), performs a few heating, hot water, and gas-safe tests before signing off the job.
7(8): It is the responsibility of the Customer to provide free access both internally and externally to and from the property on the agreed dates so that the Company’s engineer can carry out the installation process smoothly and safely. Customers must provide free access to water, gas, and electricity for installing and testing the new equipment.
7(9): It is hypothetically presumed that during the installation process and fulfillment of this contract, the customer agrees to provide a safe and respectful workplace for the engineer(s) attending the installation address to carry out the work connected with this contract. The engineer(s) will leave the property if rude, abusive, or unsafe conditions are encountered. If this happens, the Company reserves the right to sole discretion if a reattendance is arranged and what will be the charge for such a reattendance. No refund will be due from the Company to the Customer if the engineer leaves the site for reasons of safety, abuse, or general rudeness.
7(10): It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure there is adequate vehicle parking for the Company engineer to park their van within 20-25 meters of the entrance to the property. Any charges for the parking are to be paid by the customer. Any parking permits are also the responsibility of the customer, the customer has to organize the permit or notify the Company of the restriction at least three working days before the engineer is due to arrive, or at the time of order, whichever is sooner.
7(11): Prior to any attendance by the Company’s engineer, the Customer is responsible to secure any permissions, licenses, or permits that may be required to authorize the work. Examples of such permits could be a listed building consent, freeholder agreement, or landlord consent.
7(12): Any existing radiators, radiator valves, pipework, and any other equipment serving the heating and hot water in the property should all be in working order. If they have been poorly installed or have become faulty the Customer should discuss & inform the Company during the ordering process via email or over the phone prior to the Company engineer(s) visit to carry out the installation process. If the customer fails to do so, the Company is in no way responsible for any consequential damage, irrespective of if the engineer working on behalf of the company has touched them or not.
7(13): Whilst completing the installation, the routing of new or upgraded pipework should be discussed with the Customer and will need to be installed in a way that makes most functional sense from an engineering point of view, not simply aesthetic. The new or upgraded pipework may need to be surface mounted and clipped in place. The Company’s online offers do not include the cost to bury the pipework in the walls, under the concrete ground, or boxing the pipework in and Company’s engineers will not facilitate such type of work during the standard installation process.
7(14): In case should the customer requires such works, the Customer can then discuss the additional costs associated to carry out such works with the Company during the ordering process. When a cost is agreed between the Company and the Customer to carry out any such additional works, this has to be confirmed and accepted in writing via email.
7(15): The Company is committed to taking reasonable care during the installation process, holes or cuts made during the process will be made good but not permanently finished or re-decorated. Floorboards will be reinstated but any special and or laminated floors cannot be permanently re-installed. Any carpets which are lifted will be re-laid to the best of our engineer’s ability, however, Company can not be held responsible for any damage to carpets or underlays that are glued or nailed down. It should be anticipated that an amount of redecoration may be required and this will be the Customer’s responsibility and is not included in the offer price displayed online.
7(16): The Customer understands that during or after any plumbing work carried out by the Company’s engineer there could be changes in water pressure in existing plumbing. The Company’s engineer will exercise reasonable care in visually assessing the installed system and pipework suitability for any likely changes in the pressure but the Company is not liable for any damages caused to existing/old plumbing installation or any consequential damage caused by the failure or incompatibility of existing pipework, showers, taps, valves, other plumbing fittings or any appliances. The Company accepts no liability for any damage to plasterwork, decorations, flooring, etc which may be consequent upon/after carrying out of the work detailed.
7(17): Although the Company’s engineers will take reasonable care not to damage wiring, plumbing, and other services at the customer’s property but the Company can not be held responsible for any consequential damage caused to existing services/ installations that are not visible clearly. The Company can not be held responsible for any damage to the Customer’s home which is caused as a direct result of structural defects or weaknesses at the installation address whether they are visible or not. If the Customer is unsure of the structural integrity of the building they should engage an appropriately qualified structural surveyor prior to any installation the Company may arrange in connection with this contract.
7(18): The company will accept no liability for matching any colour, texture, and general appearance of the materials (such as bricks ) used during the installation process as products and building materials can vary in colour, texture, and general appearance. When matching new materials to the existing materials which are part of the house (such as bricks), a match is often not possible due to older materials becoming obsolete and the effects of weathering over time. The company accepts no liability to provide such materials unless the Customer agrees to make available their own materials (such as matching bricks or tiles) at their expense if they would like a specific material to be used during the installation process.
7(19): The Company’s engineer will need to inspect the existing relevant infrastructure to make sure it meets current regulatory standards when installing new products in the customer’s house. Should the existing infrastructure fails to meet relevant standards/capacity then the Company will give options to bring the infrastructure up to a standard that allows the new installation to take place. If the Customer does not wish to authorize the required additional work(s) but on his own will still want the new product to be installed, the engineer will leave the new product for final connections by others and will not commission the product or issue any safety check certifications. In such circumstances, the Customer is still liable to make payment in full to the Company as these will be considered to be goods been delivered and installed.
7(20): As per the Company’s health and safety plan, it is required that the engineer have access to working communication devices during the installation. If for any reason the engineer is unable to get proper mobile phone reception, the Customer agrees to give the engineer access to their telephone or internet connection without any charges.
7(21): When the installation works are completed at the Customer’s property, the Customer or their representative should be present at the property and may inspect the work before the engineer departs. Once the engineer is satisfied that the work is complete and the Customer or their representative has been given the opportunity to inspect, then all works required to fulfill the contract are deemed to have been completed.
7(22): Sometimes things don’t go according to plan with the new installation. The customer agrees to give the Company and its engineers reasonable opportunities to put things right by providing access to the installation address and time to rectify any faults or problems. New equipment can sometimes not function correctly once first installed ( if a part may have become dislodged internally during the transit). The company works proactively with both product manufacturers and Customers to rectify the issue as quickly as possible. The Company will do all that it reasonably can to minimize the disruption to the household at this time and ask for the customer’s understanding and patience in these extremely rare circumstances.
7(23): If the installation of ordered material is prevented due to the customer’s responsibilities (such as removal of asbestos or improving existing infrastructure) for more than12 months from the date of order placement with the Company, then the Company will be deemed to have performed the contract in full and entitled to retain all monies paid to date without deduction or refund in full or in part without the supply of any further goods and services.
7(24): The company always tries to complete work before 6 pm on the day of installation but may on an odd occasion need to use reasonable overtime to achieve completion.

The Customer accepts that the Company can not compromise with the safety of the engineer working on behalf of the Company and suitable equipment may be required, for which the Customer will pay directly or will reimburse the Company. The Customer can discuss the cost of any required access equipment with the Company during the ordering process or within 1 working week prior to the installation whichever is sooner ( in exceptional or rare circumstances the company needs at least 3 days’ notice to arrange such equipment prior to installation). The Customer may cancel and receive a full refund of any sums paid as a deposit if the Customer does not wish to pay for any access equipment that may be required.
7(27): The Company’s engineer will take pictures of the installed equipment and relevant infrastructure for the Company’s auditing process and as footprints of the installation. The engineer may also attend with other people including managers, supervisors, or apprentices. The Company may use pictures of the installation for marketing purposes from time to time.
7(28): The Company is not liable for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or business opportunity under any circumstances.

7(29): The Company’s engineer will remove and dispose of old product, new product’s packaging, and any debris from the site as a part of the contract price but this does not include the removal of any dangerous/hazardous waste material such as asbestos which the engineer becomes aware of before or during the installation. It is the responsibility of the Customer to arrange the safe removal and disposal of such material from the site at their own expense and provide a Clean Air Certificate to the Company as proof of completed works.
7(30): In case the Customer is already aware of any dangerous/hazardous waste material such as asbestos, the Customer must notify the Company during the ordering process or prior to installation. The Customer is liable to get rid of such material at their own expense. In case the Customer is unable to get the dangerous/hazardous waste materials (asbestos) removed and disposed of, they can discuss it with the Company prior to installation. If this happens the Customer agrees that Company will hire a third party on the behalf of the Customer for removal and disposal of the dangerous/hazardous waste materials (asbestos) and pass on the expense to be paid directly by the Customer to the Third Party or the Customer has to reimburse the associated costs to the Company.
7(31): The Company needs to ensure operatives working on the site have access to welfare facilities under Construction (Design and Management Regulations). The facilities include; a toilet, washing facilities, drinking water, and facilities for rest in a warm indoor area. The Customer agrees to provide access to these facilities within the existing property for workers to use in a clean and respectful way. If the Customer wants the Company to make other arrangements to comply with these regulations, the Customer will notify the Company at least 14 days prior to commencement of on-site works. The Customer is liable to pay the additional cost of hiring such facilities 7 days prior to the installation date.
7(32): When the Customer selects an installation date whilst completing the online order process, it will be reserved for 2 hours. To confirm the installation date, the completion process including the completion of any finance documents needs to be finished by the Customer. This includes the attendance of the Company’s call to confirm your order. If the Customer does not complete the process within 2 hours, the Company will endeavor to install on the chosen date, however after the time has lapsed, the Company reserves the right to only offer an alternative installation slot.
8. Boilers & Showers
8.1: The Customer should be aware of the fact that due to the wide variety of showers available in the market it is not possible for the Company to determine if a shower and your boiler will be compatible/ The Company will not be liable if your existing boiler/shower is not compatible for any reason with a new boiler/shower.
8.2: If the Customer is already aware of the non-compatibility of the shower with a new boiler they must inform the Company during the ordering process or prior to the installation of new equipment. The Company will discuss any alternatives and the additional costs with the Customer before accepting the order. If the Customer does not accept to pay the additional cost for the required work and additional equipment but still wants to proceed with the installation of the ordered material, then for safety reasons the engineer will cap off the existing shower supplies and the Customer has to get a compatible shower installed at his own expense later on.
8.3: If the customer fails to inform the Company, the Company will accept no liability for any damage/disruption or inconvenience caused due to direct or indirect actions of the engineer and can not be held responsible to pay any compensations to the Customer. The Customer is deemed to make the payment in full to the Company as the ordered material has been installed.
9. Converting to a Combination Boiler
9.1: The Customer should be aware of the fact that the water flow rate they receive at the cold water outlets will be the flow at hot water taps/showers when they decide to replace their old boiler type like conventional, regular, traditional, or back boiler with a new Combination boiler (combi). Combi boiler heats up the water at cold’s mains pressure.
9.2: Although there is the help provided on the Company’s website how the Customer can measure the flow rate but still If the Customer is unsure, they should immediately call and discuss with the Company during the ordering process. If the customer fails to do so the Company will accept no liability to whatsoever customer claims or intend to claim.
9.3: When converting from a standard boiler to a combi boiler there will likely be a pressure increase in your existing/old pipework. This increase in pressure can exacerbate any existing or old leaks and can cause new leaks to appear. Although on completion all work is tested in presence of the Customer still the Company is happy to reattend to identify and rectify leaks for up to 2 free of charge visits. For any further attendances, the Company upon a request will provide a quote to renew all infrastructure that is likely to need further work or replacement.
9.4: The Company will remove and dispose of old conventional boiler along with hot water storage cylinder and storage header tanks made of cut-able plastic usually found over the hot water cylinder or in the loft as a part of the work. The Company is not liable to remove and dispose of any storage header tanks which are made of asbestos material (like cement or metal), these will be disconnected, safely drained, and left in a place, subjected to water bye-laws in the local area.
10. Like For Like Installations
10.1: By like for like we mean the type of new boiler is the same as the old boiler type (for example old combi boiler is replaced with a new combi boiler) and installed in the same location until unless the Customer has decided and chosen to relocate the new boiler.
10.2: The customers can carefully select or edit their answers to the questions asked while using the Company’s online assessment tool and see the associated costs to relocate to a new location or install a new boiler in the same location.
