In general, a warranty means that in the event that your boiler or heating system develops a fault or breaks down, the manufacturer agrees to send an engineer out to your property to fix or replace your boiler, at no extra cost.
It can be said that ‘the longer the warranty, the higher the quality of the boiler’. Of course, this normally means it comes at a higher cost too.
However, in times of emergency, a comprehensive warranty can be the difference between breaking the bank or sitting in the warm with peace of mind.
‘A written guarantee, issued to the purchaser of an article by its manufacturer, promising to repair or replace it if necessary, within a specified period of time.’
When you get your new boiler installed, in most cases, you’ll also get a manufacturer-backed warranty, a.k.a guarantee, as part of your installation package.
There are many benefits to having a boiler warranty and we will provide you with information on how you can ensure that your boilers warranty is kept valid.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to manufacturer warranties and protection for boilers. Each boiler manufacturer has set their own, because some are more confident in the quality of their products and service offerings than others.
Manufacturers rarely offer customers a wide warranty across all of their products. They’ll usually vary from range to range. A typical boiler warranty will cover from between 1 – 10 years. But which manufacturers offer the best warranties and will give you the best bang for your buck?
Take a look at the table below to get your head around which boiler manufacturers offer which length of warranty:
|Boiler Manufacturer||Warranty (Amount Of Years)|
|Worcester Bosch||5-10 years|
In the unlikely event that your under warranty boiler does require attention, you should contact the manufacturer directly.
Once your boiler is installed, make sure your Gas Safe Registered engineer calls and registers your boiler for warranty.
You can make all the noise in the world, but if you haven’t called the manufacturer or ensured the gas engineer called them to activate it, then you won’t get very far if you ever need to make a claim.
That’s why it’s important to call the manufacturer on the day you’ve had your new boiler installed and claim your warranty as soon as possible to cover your boiler.
