What is boiler installer accreditation?
One of the best ways to find a reputable boiler installer is by looking for one that is accredited. Accreditation means that they are approved by manufacturers to install boilers, and they have been assessed as meeting their strict standards of workmanship. You can rest assured that your new boiler will be installed safely, efficiently and correctly when you choose an accredited installer.
For most manufacturers you will also benefit from an extended warranty when your boiler is installesd by an accredited installer, for some, this can be up to 12 years.

What is a boiler warranty, and what does it cover?
A warranty can cover anything from minor repairs to full replacements in the event that something goes wrong with your new boiler or heating system within a certain period of time after installation. It is important to note that although all boilers come with a warranty, the time period covered can vary depending on the manufacturer, as can the type of repairs covered by the warranty.
A warranty will generally cover any faults that occur with the boiler during the warranty period, It won’t cover wear and tear, or damage caused by accidents, neglect or misuse. If you think you may have damaged your new boiler, it’s best to speak to your installer before claiming on the warranty so they can assess if there is any scope for repair under its terms.
Should I purchase a service plan?
To keep your Boiler running efficiently and safely and to keep the warranty valid you will need to have it serviced annually. To avoid a larger annual outlay for servicing you can spread the cost using a monthly service plan, find out about the plans available here.
