You will be covered as soon as your first monthly payment is made, after the 2-week exclusion period. All monthly payments henceforth will be paid by direct debit. We reserve the right to not accept an appliance under the Silver or Gold care plans if the boiler is over 10 years old or some spares parts are no longer available.

Your contract with us begins for a 12 month period, commencing from the date of our acceptance letter, after your boiler/system has been inspected, and on a month-to-month basis, after the initial 12-month period, unless we or you use the corresponding cancellation rights.
