Boiler Medic 5 Star Boiler and Central Heating Service Agreement

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Boilermedic have brought out their 5 star service agreement product to enable homeowners and landlords the peace of mind and protection in the event of various problems with their boiler controls and central heating.

GENERAL CONDITIONS

In all other cases we will write to advise you of the change at least 28 days prior to any change taking effect. Where the changes do not benefit you and if you wish to terminate your agreement, you may terminate your agreement and we will refund your total fee for the whole agreement if we have not either attended your property, or if we have not completed a service or breakdown visit. Once we have visited your property this agreement will last the agreed duration of 12 months and will have a minimum cancellation charge of £99.

Repairs in the event of breakdown of a single gas boiler, controls and wet central heating in your Home (this agreement does not include warm air systems). In the first year under this agreement callouts and repairs will not be included until the expiry of 28 days from the commencement of the period of Service agreement.

Your 5 star agreement will begin from the day we receive your first payment and the cover will not begin until 28 days from this date.

Parts and labour. There is no age limit on your boiler and it does not matter who installed it, as long as all the essential working parts are available. Any parts or appliances which are faulty will at first be repaired where appropriate and then new or refurbished parts will be installed. Any required replacement parts are sourced from our network of suppliers. These may differ from the original, for example, using a standard radiator valve to replace a chrome plated radiator valve, unless an alternative is provided by you.

First Service of your boiler and system (except electric boilers and parts of the system that aren’t easy to get to) Is included in your agreement. Your boiler must pass its First Service.

Annual Service of your boiler and system (except electric boilers and parts of the system that aren’t easy to get to). Is included in your agreement. Gas Safety Certificate: This will be included in your service agreement for an extra fee of £25 if required, but must be carried out during your first service or annual service. If carried out at a different date to your service it will then be charged at a higher rate outside of this agreement. Retests may also be chargeable if further work is required to bring the heating system up to the current standards.

This agreement includes radiators, radiator valves and central heating pipework , along with the boiler and controls. Cylinders will be drained down and capped off but not replaced under this agreement. All necessary PowerFlushTM work if required. Please note at present there are no heating companies which offer powerflushing or descaling within their service contracts. This will not be carried out during the winter months. However we will complete minor or alternative flushes of the system at this time to enable the heating or hot water to work until the summer months. Usually between march and September powerflushing will be carried out. Please see the powerflsuhing section in our general exclusions.
