Terms and conditions

Here at The Efficient Boiler Company we aim to make everything as Efficient as possible.

We have put together some terms and conditions together for you to look through, if you need any help or any further information please get in touch with our team at sales@theefficientboilercompany.co.uk

Product Cover

The cover will commence on the date shown on your agreement and will last for 12 months from that date. During the first year of cover no claim can be made within the first 28 days.

Renewals

Wherever possible we will aim to give 28 days notice of any changes to price and the contents of what is included within your agreement. The price shown on your agreement will not change until the renewal date. On the renewal date your cover will automatically renew for a further fixed year period unless you inform us you do not wish to renew. Your agreement is a 12-month rolling contract and it remains valid until termination by either EBC or the client.

Gas Supply Cover

Gas supply cover can be added to your agreement at an extra cost of £2 per month. This covers gas pipework up to any appliances only.

Gas Fire Service

Gas Fire Service can be added to your Efficient Care agreement for an additional £2 per month. This entitles you to an annual service for your Gas Fire, please note any parts or repair work required will be at an additional cost and a quote will be given prior to any work proceeding.

Replacement Boiler

If your boiler is deemed beyond repair and it was installed by EBC then a replacement boiler will be arranged, as long as you have held a continuous agreement with EBC that spans the life of the boiler.

First service and initial inspection

EBC will inspect the installation/boiler within 28 days of your Efficient Care plan commencing to ensure it is in safe working order and has been installed according to manufacturer instructions. You will be provided with a completed checklist to inform you of what has been inspected.

As long as your system/boiler passes the initial inspection EBC will take on Efficient Care agreement. In the case of further work/amendments being required EBC will do one of the following:

  1. Inform you of work required and give you a quote for said work
  2. Offer you the cover agreement excluding cover for the part/parts which require remedial work

Exclusions from agreement

This service contract sits along your statutory rights and EBC will repair faulty goods subject to fair wear and tear and misuse providing they were installed by EBC.

Power Flushing

The purpose of Power Flushing is to remove any sludge, iron oxides or debris from your heating system to improve efficiency and prevent damage. Power Flushing may be recommended by EBC at the initial inspection visit along with the fitting of a magnetic system filter.

Statistics show that a large proportion of boiler faults can be attributed to the presence of sludge/debris within the heating system.

If Power Flushing is recommended at the initial inspection, then there will be a charge for this service. Once this initial Power Flush has been undertaken (providing a magnetic system filter has been fitted) any further Power Flushing will be free of charge as long as you are still in contract with EBC.

Should you decide against EBC advice and choose not the undertake a Power Flush if recommended then your heating system will not be covered should the system fail due to sludge/debris build up or oxidisation.

Annual Service

Annual servicing is included free of charge within your Efficient Care agreement and EBC will notify you in writing when your system is due for annual service. It is your responsibility to arrange this service by contacting EBC and arranging a suitable time/date for servicing to be carried out.

 Parts and Components

If new parts are required EBC will endeavour to fit the same part but if this is not possible alternative parts of the same quality will be fit. In the event of needing to order replacement parts from suppliers EBC cannot be held responsible for delays in replacement and will not be liable to pay any compensation should this occur.

Change of house ownership / moving house

If ownership of the address shown within the agreement changes then the new owner can retain the benefits of the agreement providing the payments continue to be paid and details are updated.

No refund is given for any remaining time left on the agreement when moving to a new house. It is the agreement holder or new owner’s responsibility to inform EBC of any changes regarding address.

Please notify EBC of any changes to address as soon as possible, EBC can then transfer your agreement to the new address and arrange to carry out an initial inspection at your new property.
