  • At Prime Time Boilers, our normal installation working hours are 8am-6pm Mondays to Fridays. We may however on occasion need to work overtime (and in certain circumstances additional days) to achieve job completion. Although we will endeavour to minimise any inconvenience or disruption, it is a condition of this agreement that your approval of such overtime is granted.

Additional charges will explained at the time and prior to the overtime or unsocial working hours commencing.

Should the credit agreement be later cancelled, the contract balance will become immediately payable according to the provisions of the 1974 Consumers Credit Act.
  • When a client suspends or cancels an installation job, or there is a lack of instruction or delay on site caused by events beyond the company’s control, we shall charge all extra expenses thereby incurred or losses suffered to the client, along with a reasonable addition for administration and overhead costs.
  • The client has the responsibility of ensuring that any permit, licence, or any other documents necessary for the execution of the work is acquired and that existing property boundaries are defined correctly.
  • We bear no responsibility for any damages to plaster work, flooring, and/or decoration etc., which may occur during the process of boiler installation, except specifically provided for in the schedule(s) in the quotation. We will take care to refill cuts or holes made to allow for equipment but they may not be permanently finished or redecorated. We will reinstall floor boards when necessary but special and/or laminated floors cannot be permanently re-fixed. We will re-lay any carpets which have to be lifted to the best of our ability, but will not be held responsible for carpets which have been nailed or glued down. Clients should expect to expend extra funds on re-decoration, and should note that this is his/her responsibility and is not included in our quoted price.

We will not be held responsible for the failure of any such components or defects existing within any part of the original system e.g. radiators, pumps, pipework, shower taps etc.
  • Because we need all pipes to be easily accessible, we will leave such pipes exposed and will not bury them in solid floors. Unless specifically detailed in the quotation, boxing in of pipe-work is not included. The boxing in can be arranged at an additional cost.

  • Our quoted price includes the cost for removing all non-dangerous materials, including old boiler and central heating parts we replace.
  • Our quotation does not include the cost for removing any dangerous waste materials (such as asbestos) that we could not rationally identify when we prepared such a quotation.

When you arrange to have asbestos removed, you will be required to produce a “site clearance for reoccupation” certificate before we can recommence work at your property.
  • The contract price quoted is subject to any changes in Value Added Tax.
  • Clients must take note that hot water flow rates may be reduced if more than one tap or outlet is used simultaneously, where combined boilers are supplied. You are not to take this as an installation fault as it is characteristic of most combination boilers.
  • The client has the sole responsibility of ensuring that there is a suitable gas supply and metre on the relevant property. Where they are not available, the client must arrange for gas supply through any suitable pipeline provider. Client shall also arrange for a gas metre with a gas supplier. All expenses under this arrangement shall be borne by the client, except specifically included in the quotation.
  • Should our engineers need to gain access to the property main or garage roof, we shall hold no liability for damage to roof.
  • We will require the client to provide the necessary number of bricks required for making good when stonework, brickwork, or other masonry has to be refitted. We will not provide the bricks for these works unless specifically outlined in the quotation.
  • If our engineer is unable to commission the new boiler on the day of completion due to an existing problem with the system (including valves, controls, electrics and gas), we shall charge a commissioning charge of £100 plus VAT. We will then reschedule for our engineer to revisit the property in order to commission the boiler.
  • Except otherwise stated in the quotation and schedule of works, we will connect onto your home’s existing electrical system. A new fused spur may be required if the boiler location is changed as part of the schedule of works. Please note that unless specifically stated our quotation does not include the installation of a new fused spur. If there is no fused spur present, we will commission the boiler on a temporary supply and the homeowner will subsequently be responsible for the upgrade of the electrical supply to meet current regulations.
  • The client shall install any relevant accessibility parts such as fixed loft ladder, lights, fixed surface/platform, hand rails etc. if the boiler is to be installed in the loft or at another high location.
  • Any latitude, concession, or waiver permitted by the Company at any time shall not prevent the company subsequently exercising such rights.

After Care Terms And Conditions

We offer the terms and conditions below in addition to the guarantee extended from the manufacturer of the boiler in line with our policy.

  • Prime Time Boilers and the manufacturers warranty cover the components of the appliance including the manufacturers’ controls which if proved to be defective or faulty at manufacture, will be repaired or exchanged for free.
  • Warranty for the flue system is in accordance with the manufacturers guarantee.
  • Only a product fitted with a system filter can qualify for Prime Time Boilers and the manufacturers extended guarantee.
  • In order to validate the manufacturers guarantee, we will carry out a chemical flush on your installed boiler after installation. If we obtain evidence that the heating system is having difficulty circulating, has cold spots to the bottom of the radiators and/or there is heavy black sludge while draining down the system, we will perform a power flush at an additional cost.
  • In order to validate our guarantee, the homeowner agrees to use Prime Time Boilers only for the full service obligations of the installed appliance. This entails the appliance being serviced every 12 months by Prime Time Boilers. The homeowner is solely responsible for booking this service with Prime Time Boilers within this timescale.
  • The client agrees that he/she will abide by the terms and conditions set out by Prime Time Boilers and the terms and conditions set out by the manufacturer throughout the life of this agreement.
  • Prime Time Boilers and the manufacturer will not be held responsible for any fault found on the existing heating system that does not form a part of the appliance or any fault ascending from causes other than original manufacturing defects or workmanship.
  • Neither we nor the manufacturer will be held responsible in any way for any damage arising from adverse weather conditions such as rainwater down the flue or frozen condensation outlets.
  • If a homeowner does not keep up with the services at any point during the warranty period, Prime Time Boilers and the manufacturer reserve the right to cancel any extended guarantee.
  • Clients may not transfer the guarantee that Prime Time Boilers offers to a third party.
  • Guarantee shall be made void if client interferes with the heating systems in any way, including draining down the system.
  • Any decisions made by Prime Time Boilers and the manufacturer are final and not subject to change.

Boiler And Component Guarantee

There are two parts to the boiler guarantee:

Parts guarantee: This is a guarantee on external components installed by Prime Time Boilers, provided by the manufacturer and is exclusive of labour.

Labour guarantee: This is a labour guarantee provided by the manufacturer. To maintain the guarantee, a Gas Safe/OFTEC engineer must service the boiler annually for the duration of the warranty.

Service and Maintenance Plan

These additional terms and conditions below are in relation to the optional service and maintenance plan, from date of installation. To qualify for this service and maintenance plan, clients’ boiler must be installed by Prime Time Boilers.

  • To be eligible for the guarantee, the water treatment to the central heating system must comply with the manufacturer’s instructions and Prime Time Boilers recommendations, and a magnetic filter must be installed at installation and cleaned every 12 months.
  • If there is a pay increase in the service, Prime Time Boilers will notify clients at least 30 days before collecting the payment.
  • Clients must note that we carry out boiler servicing between normal working hours. We will not be obliged to carry out a service outside of this period, and will charge an additional cost if we commit to service your boiler out of this time frame. We shall also charge extra for additional consumables.
  • We shall not be held responsible for any delay in the provision of any spare parts by suppliers and thus will make no compensation should this occur. Prime Time Boilers may supply and fit replacement parts and components which are adequate but not the same as defective parts.

Other Terms

These additional terms and conditions below are in relation to the optional service and maintenance plan, from date of installation. To qualify for this service and maintenance plan, clients’ boiler must be installed by Prime Time Boilers.

  • As Gas Safe Registered engineers, we are mandated to connect any gas appliance only to a gas supply that we adjudge safe and sound. To ensure this, we will carry out a gas soundness test before the installation of a new boiler/heating system. If we uncover a defect or a leak within the existing gas pipe work, we might take any of three actions; a) we may condemn the supply; b) we may take steps to make the supply safe as necessary; or c) we may re-pipe the supply prior to the installation work being carried out. As such work is totally unforeseen, we may charge an extra amount to that shown in the quotation.
  • Clients must note that the cold water flow rate presented in the quotation is measured utilising a flow measuring device in litres per minute during the initial visit by our Sales Advisor, and may change depending on the condition and age of the water supply and the time of day the reading is taken.
  • We will try to provide a similar finish whenever possible when brickwork, stonework or other masonry has to made good. We may however be unable to provide a perfect match for the original materials for reasons such as unavailability and effects of weathering over the years.

Notice Of Right To Cancel

You may cancel this contract if you so wish, provided you deliver or send notice to this effect not more than 14 days after you receive this notice.

The notice of cancellation is deemed to be served as soon as it is posted or sent, or in the case of electronic communication from the day it was sent.

You will be required to pay for any goods or services supplied if work on the above contract has begun before the end of the cancellation period.

Really happy with all of the team from Prime Time Boilers. My boiler was old and didn’t work properly so I had a new boiler installed and paid for it through finance. The guys that came to install were really good and knew what they were doing. So all In all they did a really good job.

We had our new boiler installed today by Alex and Rob. Excellent service. Professional, friendly and polite. On a bitterly cold day, they did a wonderful job. In fact the whole Prime Time Boilers service from start to finish, from Alan the surveyor to Georgia and Paul in the office and then to Alex and Rob was extremely friendly and professional and we would highly recommend them. Thank you Prime Time Boilers on a job very well done.

Big thanks to the engineers at Prime Time Boilers, I know I had a difficult job changing my back boiler from my front room to a new combi boiler in my kitchen but they got it done in 2 days and they did it all very neatly!

Just had a new boiler installed all in one day and I can't fault the work or the people who put it in. I was given a quote and there was no hidden extras and the price was lower than all the others quotes that I received. The team that came to do the work were very polite and cleaned up as they went. Well done Prime Time job well done recommend you to anyone who needs a new boiler 10 out of 10.
