2.WPJ Heating will provide cover at the level depending on and reflective of the Customer's requirements.
3. Cover will be provided seven days per week including bank holidays. However, routine repair work including boiler servicing will only be carried out between 8.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday.
4. WPJ Heating will endeavour to respond promptly and if possible within 24 hours to the Customer's request.
5. WPJ Heating shall be entitled to charge for any work not covered by the cover plan at the prevailing hourly rates as set out on our Rates page at the date that any such work is carried out.
6. A Customer's request for an engineer to attend must relate to the cover. If we receive a request to attend a property and the problem is not related to the cover in place then a minimum charge equivalent to the prevailing hourly rate, as set out on our Rates page, will be made by WPJ Heating.
7. The cover does not include repairs on pre-existing faults or faults which occur during the first 28 days of the cover unless WPJ Heating is deemed to be responsible.
8. Customers pay for their Service Contract cover in advance by monthly direct debit into the bank account nominated by WPJ Heating. For example payment on 1 January provides cover for the period 1 to 31 January.
9. Additional services (including excluded works see below) and the cost of the replacement parts not covered by the Service Contract will be subject to additional charges in accordance with the Rates page on our website.
10. In order to facilitate the provision of the cover, the Customer shall:
(a) keep and operate the equipment in a proper and prudent manner
(b) use all equipment, appliances and fittings in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines and the guidance given by WPJ Heating
(c) not move, make any addition, modification or adjustment to equipment without WPJ Heating’s prior written consent.
(d) have an initial, and then an, annual service and safety check completed by a WPJ Heating Gas Safe registered engineer (as per paragraphs 15 and 16 below)
(e) maintain and make available to WPJ Heating all records of the operation, and any previous faults, of the equipment.
(f) report all faults to WPJ Heating immediately and
(g) not seek third party interference with the equipment without the express written consent of WPJ Heating.
Failure by the Customer to adhere to any of the above could invalidate the cover.
11. WPJ Heating shall have no liability for any damage caused to the Customer’s property unless occasioned by WPJ Heating’s negligence.
12. WPJ Heating reserves the right to terminate the agreement at any time and no refunds will be payable.
13. If the Customer does not pay each direct debit on the due date then cover will be suspended automatically from the due date until payment is made in full. If the Customer fails to pay more than 3 consecutive payments, then cover automatically terminates. Should a customer in this position subsequently wish to take out cover again, the Customer will enter into a new contract of minimum duration 12 months in accordance with paragraph 14.
14. Period of Contract: The initial term of agreement is 12 months. In the event of cancellation by the Customer within the initial term, WPJ Heating will retain the remainder of the current month’s cover charge paid in advance together with the next month’s charge by way of early cancellation fee. For example, if you pay on 1 January but cancel on 2 January, then WPJ will retain the fee for January plus the fee for February. Cover will stop on the last day of January and the direct debit commitment will end on the last day of February.
15. Annual visit: A service engineer will inspect the boiler and system once a year whilst servicing, carrying out routine maintenance and safety checks. Any further remedial works required or defects apparent will be highlighted at this point.
16. Acceptance on the Contract: Acceptance of a system or appliances on to a contract does not imply that it is installed satisfactorily, to current standards, codes of practice or that spare parts are readily available. WPJ reserve the right to cancel the policy if we find any such faults or if any item under cover is altered by a third party. Please note WPJ will carry out a boiler service and system survey prior to any acceptance on to a cover plan in order to establish the condition, age, size and suitability of the Customer’s appliance, the cost of which is a separate item charged according to Rates page.
17. After the initial term, the contract will continue on a monthly rolling basis until validly terminated by either party upon a month’s written notice. In the event of notice of termination, WPJ will retain the remainder of the current month’s cover charge paid in advance together with the next month’s charge by way of early cancellation fee. For example, if you pay on 1 January but cancel on 2 January, then WPJ will retain the fee for January plus the fee for February. Cover will stop on the last day of January and the direct debit commitment will end on the last day of February.
18. A WPJ Heating engineer will usually carry out the work. In some cases, we may authorise a suitably qualified contractor to carry out the work.
