General Conditions

 

Your Cover

 

In order to be accepted onto any one of the Plan ranges, an annual boiler service and inspection must take place to ensure that your boiler is not beyond any economical repair at the point of starting the cover. If it is deemed that your boiler is beyond economical repair, our engineer will advise and you will be offered a free, no obligation survey and quotation for a replacement boiler. The cost of the boiler service will still apply, however this will be deducted from the final installation invoice, should you accept the quotation provided. If you choose not to go ahead with us, the cost of the annual service will remain. Any parts requiring replacement in the initial suitability service visit will be chargeable, if proceeded with. This does not apply for renewal service.

 

Cover starts from the day you are accepted following an annual service. The cover is for a period of twelve months. You will be notified by email with regards to your renewal information when the terms of your cover is due to end. Prices for renewal do not change due to policy usage during your cover period but may increase due to increase in the national inflation rate. You will be given at least 28 days notice of any intended charge increases and given the opportunity to change, cancel or not renew your cover with us. Cover automatically renews yearly on the date that your first contract was taken out unless we hear from you to cancel your cover.

 

Payment is due upon receipt of the invoice, at the point of completion of the service offered. If payment is not received within 28 days, cover may be forfeited, and any subsequent call outs or claims will be chargeable at the standard rates. Payment can be made by a recurring annual payment.

 

Whilst the cost of replacement parts is included in a some of our plans, the cost to replace an appliance such as a boiler, cylinder in its entirety, is not included in the plans. If an appliance is deemed beyond economic repair, a quotation with competitive prices to reflect your care plan status will be provided.

 

 

Your Responsibilities 

 

This contract is specific to the boiler/ appliance at the property visited for the annual inspection. The cover is for a 12month period. If you move home during the period of your cover, the contact remains, as does the cost of the care plan. To provide cover in the form of one of our Plans from the range above, at a new property, we would be required to attend for an annual service again and commence a new contract. No refunds are provided for a change in ownership. If you do move home, please notify us as soon as possible in order for us to update our records. Please also advise of any changes to personal information such as contact number or email address to enable us to stay in contact with you regarding your plan. We also require notifying if there has been any change or damage to any system or appliances covered under your plan.

 

We require access to your property to carry out any directed services or works, in accordance with your contract. Visits will always be communicated and scheduled with you, at your request, taking into account your availability and preference. Please ensure that our engineers have access to your property, at the agreed times, and should you need to cancel an appointment, please provide as much notice as possible. An adult aged 18 or over must be present to grant access. Access needs to be made possible by the homeowner/cover holder.

 

We will not carry out works outside of the scope of your cover without providing you with costing and gaining approval where applicable. Our engineers must be able to access relevant parts of your property to carry out works and we ask that prior to the appointment, the home is deemed to be a safe and accessible environment for our engineers. If an engineer attends and is unable to gain access or carry out works due to the condition of the home, or verbal or physical aggression, you may be liable for charges associated with this. Where asbestos is found, it will need to be removed before we can continue works and this will need to be arranged and paid for by you, the homeowner. The homeowner is responsible for ensuring accessibility to the relevant appliance. Please advise on booking if accessibility is an issue. Engineers will be equipped with ladders; any additional access equipment will need to be sourced by the customer or shared at an additional rate. 

 

Tenants can contact us directly to arrange appointments, however, authority must be granted by the homeowner or letting agent, and gained in advance of any works being undertaken.

 

 

Our Responsibilities

 

As a Plan customer, we guarantee to attend your property on the same working day as the call out booking was made, providing the booking was received by 10:00am. CWS Heating Ltd do not provide an emergency cover and do not cover evenings, nights, weekends or bank holidays. 

CWS Heating Ltd are not liable for any out of hour services that the customer may source from third party companies.

 

Where a fault is found and diagnosed, we will act within reasonable time frames to remedy the issue. Whilst CWS Heating Ltd engineers carry a comprehensive range of parts and materials on their vans, due to the wide range of boilers and components, we cannot guarantee to have parts readily available. We endeavour to promptly communicate ordering timeframes and rebook to attend to fit parts as soon as possible where we have been unable to on the same day call out. Plan customers will not be charged call out fees and as such, multiple visits will not be at the expense of the homeowner.
