ELIGIBILITY
 

Our clean energy experts shall make a preliminary assessment of the eligibility and feasibility of the works required. If our clean energy experts believes you to be eligible, they shall arrange a date and time for an on-site visit at your home.


Even where you meet the eligibility criteria, there may be other factors which would prevent us from completing the installation or which would require additional works to be carried out first. This is why we will carry out an on-site survey to verify the feasibility for the installation of the air source heat pump.


If we positively assess the feasibility of the installation of a new air source heat pump, we will provide you with a Quote and these Terms.


We will tell you if we think you need to do anything to your home, such as improving insulation, before we start work. In some cases, we can arrange to carry out this work for you through one of our subsidiaries or a partner, otherwise you must arrange to carry out this preparatory work yourself.


The Quote is valid for thirty (30) days for you to accept. To confirm your order, you need to confirm to us via the link we send to you indicating that you accept the Quote and these Terms. After this, your Quote will not be valid and you may need to get another one from us.

We will refund you any money you have paid. If you have agreed in writing that installation work will commence before the cancellation period expires, and you subsequently cancel, reasonable payment may be due for any work carried out. You must confirm in writing that work may commence before your cancellation period expires.


If you cancel this contract outside the cancellation period, you may have to pay to us reasonable costs for any losses we may have incurred.

If the air source heat pump fails to work properly withing the Warranty period, you shall contact us to inspect and arrange any necessary repairs.
