Warranty and Installation

To carry out your installation of the Heat Genius system as quickly as possible, we may need to use sub-contractors. There will be an extra charge for any changes or additional work which you ask for or if we find we have to carry out any additional work in order to install your Heat Genius system. If this happens, we will explain to you the reasons for the extra work and let you know what the extra cost will be (see full details in these Terms of additional work which is not included).

If the installer is late and cannot attend your property at the agreed time for any reason, then Heat Genius will arrange a new time for your installation for you. No compensation can we awarded to the customer for the lost time from the installer not showing up. Our installers will always try and inform you if for any reason they cannot be at your property at the allotted time.

If you are a tenant, you may need your landlord’s permission to carry out the work required to install your Heat Genius. Unless you tell us otherwise, we will assume that you have this permission. We will not be responsible if we carry out work and you do not have your landlord’s permission. You will be responsible for any losses we suffer as a result of you failing to get your landlord’s permission.

We will make good any unnecessary damage that is directly caused by our negligence. However, you must accept that the installation (including removing or dismantling existing fixtures and fittings) may cause damage and certain areas may need redecoration after we finish the installation. This is your responsibility and is not included in the purchase price of Heat Genius.

You will be responsible for ensuring that before we install your Heat Genius there is an adequate fuel supply (gas, oil, biomass) and an eligible central heating system at your property (please see https://www.geniushub.co.uk/create-your-system/ for eligibility criteria). You must also have a working internet connection during the entire time of installing and commissioning of the system. This is where Heat Genius check that your Genius Hub can be connected to from outside your property.

The installation price includes only the installation of parts which are ordered through the ‘Create you system’ page on the Website, not any items that are added though the ‘products page’. Please contact Heat Genius directly about this.

The installation price includes the installation of the Heat Genius system only onto a fully functioning existing heating system. The installation price includes one visit to the property to carry out the installation. If a second visit is required, including but not limited to because part of the heating system has not been installed or is not working, this is not covered by the installation service. If you miss an appointment and do not give at least 48 hours notice, there may be a charge for the missed appointment from either Heat Genius or the subcontractor.It does not include the additional work listed below: draining down of the system, changing the valve bodies, installing underfloor heating control, moving any programmers or thermostats within the property. This and any other extra work which is related but not limited to the installation of the Heat Genius system and is supplied by the sub-contractor, payment needs to be agreed between you and the sub-contractor.

If we need to connect new equipment to your existing central heating system, we will not be responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing parts of your existing system which later develop a fault, unless we have been negligent in not realising that installing the Heat Genius system may cause the damage or the way in which we did the work caused the fault. Also, we will not be responsible if your central heating system does not work properly because your water supply becomes inadequate or the water pressure varies, or any other part of the system develops a fault.

If you choose to not use a Heat Genius arranged Installer, we will provide wiring diagrams and installation instructions (found at: https://www.geniushub.co.uk/support/), but will not provide assistance or advise with regards to the wiring.

All materials and parts provided by us are guaranteed for 24 months from the date of purchase. This does not include any extra components connected to our system but which are not provided to you by Heat Genius Ltd via Website. This does not affect the rights you have by law. Please see separated limited warranty for details.

Within 24 months from your initial installation, if the materials or parts develop a fault then we will repair or replace them free of charge. If our repair work is faulty, we will do the work again free of charge. Our repair work is guaranteed for one year from the date that we finish it. This guarantee only applies to material we provide and repairs we carry out and does not apply to any further unrelated faults with the system or appliance.

This guarantee does not cover any fault in your Heat Genius caused by you tampering with it, your negligence or your failure to follow the Heat Genius user guide or these conditions. If on receipt of a replacement device which has been covered under the warranty from Heat Genius Ltd, if the device is going into the same location as the original device, we reserve the right to refuse to warrant the replacement product as we would be deem that if there is a problem with the location this is causing the problem or fault to occur with the device.

These guarantees do not affect your legal rights in relation to the quality and description of goods and services.

You are entitled to 90 days of support via telephone and/or email from the installation date, provided to you by Heat Genius Ltd.

Your Heat Genius system allows us to see when your heating is switched on or off and at what temperature the thermostat is set. We can use this information to check how the controls on your boiler are working and may contact you, in accordance with our Privacy Policy, if we think your system isn’t working as effectively as it might.

We will not be responsible if we cannot fulfill our side of the contract for reasons which are beyond our control, such as fire, accidents, war, poor weather conditions, industrial disputes, strikes and lock outs which we are not directly involved in.
