Boiler Installations done properly.

 A new oil boiler is a sizable outlay, so I do not cut corners and I fit them properly - as per the manufacturers specifications.  This both ensures that the manufacturers warranty is intact and that your heating system works properly and lasts as long as possible. 

Of course the down-side of doing it properly is that it takes longer and is more involved, which costs more (initially), so if you are comparing my quote with another installer, make sure you ask if other quotes include all that is listed below (though I think my method is probably more cost effective in the long run than finding someone to throw one in as cheaply as possible).

  • Full flush of your heating system prior to installation of new boiler to remove as much of the old debris and muck as possible before I fit your new boiler (as required by most manufacturers or their warranty is void).

  • Inspect oil tank & test integrity of your oil supply pipework. 

  • Fit a new oil filter, remote fire valve, carbon monoxide (CO) alarm

  • Fit a magnetic heating system filter and an automatic bypass valve (as required by most manufacturers or their warranty is void).  A magnetic system filter stops iron oxide (rust) collecting in the bottom of your new boiler and an automatic bypass valve protects the circulation pump if all the Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRV’s) are closed when the boiler is running.

  • Once fitting is complete a further flush out with a cleaner to remove the acidic flux (used when soldering pipework) which get into the system water.  Acid eats the insides of boilers and kills the rubber membranes in expansion vessels, again - as required by most manufacturers or their warranty is void.

  • Fit a ‘scale reducer’ on Combination Boilers (Combi's) as required by most manufacturers or their warranty is void.

  • Inhibit the system with the correct dose of inhibitor to prevent system deterioration and sludge build up reoccurring.

  • Commission and set up the boiler to the correct operating temperature as per manufacturers  specifications to ensure maximum efficiency.

  • Balance your radiators.

  • Provide full installation documentation and register the installation with building control and the manufacturer (to validate your warranty)

  3. Any estimate or quotation for works is based on a non-intrusive survey of the property and, as such, it is assumed that any existing systems that we connect to are in good condition and in working order. Should we find, during the course of the works, any faults with the existing systems we reserve the right to make a charge for correcting same. 

  4. Dismantling, clearing and re-instatement of any fitted cupboards, etc. to permit the proposed works to proceed will be charged at extra cost unless specified.

  5. If, during the execution of the proposed works it is necessary to gain access into floors below fitted carpets, these will be lifted by us and laid back on completion. No re-stretching or fixing has been allowed for unless specified . For floors covered with thermoplastic tiles, vinyl sheet covering, cork tiles or laminate flooring, no allowance has been made for re­-instatement unless specified.

  6. During the execution of the proposed works, it may be necessary to isolate various water, gas & electrical services. This will be advised in good time and the period of isolation will be as short as possible.

  7. Whilst all holes formed during the execution of the proposed works will be made good on completion, no allowance has been made for re-instatement of decorations. We do not guarantee to match existing brickwork where boiler flue terminals have been removed.

  8. No allowance has been made for the casing in of pipework or painting/decorating of the new works unless specified.

  9. It has been assumed that unrestricted access to all relevant parts of the property will be afforded to us during the course of the works. Any delays caused by restricted access not notified at the time of survey may be subject to an extra charge and/or delay in completion.

  10. Where other trades are involved in the works and these trades are not under our control any delays that may be caused to our progress by these trades may be subject to an extra charge and/or delay in completion.

  11. Ownership of any materials supplied, whether fixed or unfixed, shall not pass to the Client until payment in full has been received for said materials. We reserve the right to take whatever legal action may be necessary to secure payment for the works carried out and materials supplied either fixed or unfixed.

  12. No allowance has been made for out-of-hours working unless specified or to suit our own requirements.

  13. All dates or times given for the start of or duration of the works are given in good faith based on the information gained during the survey and our current workload commitments. These times may be varied, however, due to unforeseen circumstances i.e. emergency call-outs, breakdowns, etc. or to circumstances beyond our control. No liability will be accepted if it is not possible to meet the client’s timescales.

  14. Any works will be guaranteed for a period of twelve months from date of completion against faulty design and workmanship.

Should any such problems be encountered any rectification works required may be charged at extra cost.

  21. Should the works include a conversion of an existing ‘vented heating system’ or ‘vented/low pressure hot water system’ to an ‘unvented heating system’ or ‘unvented/mains-pressure hot water system’, the Client should be aware that the higher pressures used by this type of boiler may find weaknesses in the existing system. Any repairs required in this respect are not included in this estimate.
