BY ORDERING THE BOILER REPAIR SERVICE YOU ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

1. BOILER REPAIR SERVICE

1.1 Pursuant to the Boiler Repair Agreement, a Service Engineer will visit the Property, carry out various tests and checks on the Boiler in order to diagnose the fault with it. All visual checks and tests applied are in accordance with the current edition of Irish Standard 813 (“I.S. 813”): as laid down by the National Standards Authority of Ireland for Domestic Gas Installations. The Service Engineer will follow manufacturer’s instructions as outlined in the installation and servicing instructions as supplied with the Boiler.

1.2 The Service Engineer will provide you with a verbal update on the fault with the Boiler and the estimated costs involved in repairing the Boiler. This may include the costs of providing new parts or components for the Boiler. The Service Engineer will also provide you with an estimate of the time it will take to repair the Boiler. Please be aware that sometimes it may not be possible to carry out the repair during the initial diagnosis visit. 

1.3 Please note that some repairs may take a longer period of time than estimated and additional charges may be incurred as set out in clause 4.1.

1.4 Complete Boiler Repair +1 + 1 does not include any of the matters referred to in clause 8.

2. SCOPE OF SERVICE

2.1 The price quoted to you by the Service Engineer is for the repair of a central heating boiler that does not exceed 45kW output.

2.2 The Agreement covers repair to a central heating boiler and certain system components but does not include repairs to radiators, heating filling system or central heating system pipework. 

3. TERM OF BOILER REPAIR AGREEMENT AND TERMINATION 

3.1 Your Boiler Repair Agreement provides for one repair to the Boiler and may include the provision of parts or components (which will be quoted and charged for separately). 

3.2 Commencement: When you order Boiler Repair, Bord Gáis Energy may run a credit check against you and perform a full eligibility check on your Boiler at a time and date agreed with you. If we choose to carry out either or both of these checks and they are satisfactory to Bord Gáis Energy, the Boiler Repair Agreement will come into effect from the later of (i) the date that we notify you that the credit check is satisfactory to us and (ii) the date that we notify you that the Boiler is suitable for Boiler Repair. 

Where the credit check and/or full eligibility check on the Boiler are satisfactory to Bord Gáis Energy, the Service Engineer will carry out the Boiler Repair on the date agreed between you and Bord Gáis Energy. Bord Gáis Energy will not be obliged to commence or continue with a Boiler Repair unless it is satisfied that no Health and Safety issue exists which would mean it would be inappropriate, unsafe or otherwise unsuitable for the Boiler Repair to commence or continue. For the avoidance of doubt, this will include circumstances where Bord Gáis Energy determines that the Boiler is inaccessible, due to the enclosure or compartment in which it is located, so as to impede the Service Engineer from commencing or continuing with the Boiler Repair. Please see clause 12 for further information. 

In circumstances where we determine that we are not in a position to proceed or continue with the Boiler Repair due to a Health and Safety issue(s), we will charge you a cancellation fee equal to €30. Boiler Repair Visits will be conducted during normal working hours (8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 4pm on Saturdays, excluding bank holidays and public holidays in Ireland), unless otherwise agreed between the parties. If an issue preventing the Boiler Repair from proceeding or continuing is removed and the appointment is rescheduled by you within 10 working days of the most recent Boiler Repair Visit, we will refund the cancellation fee of €30. Please see clause 10 below for further details.

3.3 Your Responsibilities: It is your responsibility to provide the Service Engineer with the necessary access to the Property at the time of our appointment(s) to carry out the Boiler Service and/or Boiler Safety Check. If we are not able to gain access to your Property at the time of any appointment, because you are not available to provide access we will not be able to carry out the Boiler Service and/or Boiler Safety Check and it is your responsibility to arrange another appointment. 

If we are not able to gain access to your Property at the time of an appointment, we will inform you that we were not able to carry out the Boiler Service and/or Boiler Safety Check for this reason and we will charge you a cancellation fee equal to €30. You are also responsible for making sure that (a) we can safely access your Property, which includes providing safe access to your Boiler; and (b) there is sufficient gas in the system to allow the Boiler Service and/or Boiler Safety Check to be completed (applicable to pre- pay meters only). 

In circumstances where we are not in a position to proceed with the Boiler Repair due to (a) or (b), we will inform you of this and charge you a cancellation fee equal to €30. It is also your responsibility to take care in or around areas where work is taking place during a Boiler Service Visit and to ensure that any children or animals in the Property are kept away from any area where work is being carried out or equipment is being stored and all areas in between.

3.4 Cancellation: In circumstances where you order the Boiler Repair service over the phone, you may cancel your Boiler Repair Agreement within fourteen (14) working days of receiving these Terms and Conditions, without giving a reason and without charge by calling our customer service representatives on 01 611 01 01 or by email to boilerservices@bordgais.ie unless the Boiler Repair has been carried out before the end of this period with your agreement. Otherwise, you can cancel the Boiler Repair Visit without charge up to 24 hours before the Boiler Repair Visit is due to be carried out by calling our customer service representatives on 01 611 01 01 or by email to boilerservices@bordgais.ie. The Boiler Repair Visit may be rescheduled by you at the time of cancelling it, or at a later date during the term of the Boiler Repair Agreement, to a new date and time agreed with us. If you cancel less than 24 hours before the time of the Boiler Repair Visit, we may charge you a cancellation fee equal to €30. You will also be deemed to have cancelled with less than 24 hours notice if, without at least 24 hours prior notice to us, the Service Engineer cannot access your Property to carry out the Boiler Repair at and on the agreed time and day. 

4. PRICE PAYABLE BY YOU

4.1 Payment for the repair of the Boiler is €99 for the first 30 minutes. Additional servicing time spent fault finding, carrying out the Boiler Repair and/or replacing parts or components will be charged in 15-minute units at €25 per unit. The cost of replacement parts or components (where required) is charged for separately and will not be included in the price of the Boiler Repair. The Service Engineer will provide you with a cost for any required parts prior to fitting such parts to the Boiler. The Service Engineer will only proceed to fit the required parts following your agreement to the cost of the required parts and the rate for additional labour. Certain parts may have to be ordered from outside the Republic of Ireland. These parts may require advance payment from you as will be advised to you at the time of ordering by the Service Engineer. 

4.2 All charges under the Boiler Repair Agreement can be applied to the Customer’s next Bord Gáis Energy HomeCare bill (except as outlined in 4.1 above and 4.3 below). The Customer is required to pay for the work carried out by the due date advised on the relevant Bord Gáis Energy HomeCare bill.

4.3 Customers must pre-pay by credit or debit card in the following circumstances:

  • where the total amount due under the Boiler Repair Agreement is over €600 (including parts and labour);
  • where the part required is an Exceptional Item; or
  • where the Customer does not satisfy a Bord Gáis Energy credit check (which will be determined solely at our discretion).

4.4 All prices and costs detailed in these Terms and Conditions are inclusive of VAT.

5. PAYMENT TERMS

5.1 If you are required to pre-pay in accordance with clause 4.3, you must pay by debit or credit card for Boiler Repair and, where applicable, for the cost of any additional labour and/or any parts/components that may have been supplied.

5.2 You may be charged for the cost of replacement parts/component and any additional labour in advance or we may subsequently issue you a bill for the cost of the replacement parts/components and/or labour. You are required to pay your bill by the due date specified in your bill.

5.3 If you do not pay us any sum due under the Boiler Repair Agreement when due, we may charge you a late payment fee equal to 5 % of the then due payment.

6. PROVISION OF SPARE PARTS

6.1 The Service Engineer may, during the Boiler Service Visit, identify parts or component failure or potential failure. The Service Engineer will advise you of the cost of replacement of any such parts or components and if necessary, but subject to your signed authorisation, will supply and fit adequate replacement parts or components, subject to their availability. Title to the replacement parts and/or components will only pass to you when you have paid Bord Gáis Energy for them.

6.2 Replacement parts or components may not be the same as the parts being replaced and may not be from the original manufacturer.

6.3 We will not be responsible for any delay in the provision, or unavailability, of spare parts by suppliers or manufacturers.

6.4 Any parts or components which are removed from your Boiler by the Service Engineer will, unless you specify otherwise, be left with you and not removed from the Property. You should retain this part or component until you are satisfied that the new part or component has eliminated the fault and to allow for re-testing in the event of a further fault arising with your Boiler.

6.5 For the avoidance of doubt, we will not fit replacement parts or components not supplied by us.

6.6 If the Service Engineer needs to leave the Property to source replacement components or parts, your written approval of the cost of any such replacement components and/or parts, and any additional labour charges (if applicable) is required before the Service Engineer will return to fit the replacement components and/or parts. 

7. CONDITION OF CENTRAL HEATING BOILER 

7.1 Servicing of a central heating boiler does not imply that it is manufactured or installed satisfactorily or to the prevailing standards or regulations. We do not accept responsibility for any inadequacy attributable to the original design or installation of the Boiler and make no warranty as to fitness for purpose or condition.

7.2 No responsibility or liability is accepted for the quality or condition of any existing equipment in the Property at the time of the Boiler Repair (including, without limitation, any equipment (such as the Boiler), pipework, cables, connections, controls, water supply pipes, electrical, flues or chimneys).

8. DANGEROUS WASTE MATERIAL

Should we find asbestos or other dangerous or potentially dangerous waste materials in or around the Property, then you will need to engage a specialist competent contractor to arrange for the removal of such dangerous waste material before the Boiler Repair may proceed or continue. When you have had all asbestos removed, a certificate from the specialist competent contractor certifying the absence of asbestos exposure risk as referred to in the Safety Health and Welfare at Work (Exposure to Asbestos) Regulations 2006 (or any amendment thereof or replacement Regulations), must be provided to us before we will do any further work to your Property.

9. WARRANTIES 

9.1 All work undertaken by the Service Engineer while servicing the Boiler carries a sixty (60) day warranty from the date on which the work is carried out by the Service Engineer. Subject to the other provisions of this clause, if you have any problems with the Boiler in the 60-day period after the work has been done there will be no call out charge applied if the Service Engineer has to call back to the Property. However, if, when he calls back, the Service Engineer identifies a problem with the Boiler that is not related to the Boiler Repair previously carried out, the Service Engineer will advise you of the cost of the labour and any replacement parts or components necessary to rectify the matter. Subject to your signed authorisation, the Service Engineer will then fix the problem and you will be charged for the time it takes for the Service Engineer to rectify the matter and for the cost of any necessary parts or components. Time will be charged in 15-minute units at €25 per unit. 

9.2 With regard to the supply of any replacement parts and/or components and of any other materials supplied as part of the Boiler Repair, we warrant that at the time of installation the replacement parts and/or components (as the case may be) and any other such materials will be of merchantable quality, and will be fit for the purpose for which they are supplied (within the meaning of section 10 of the Sale of Goods Acts, 1893 and 1980). We also warrant that, to the extent that statutory provisions apply to the Boiler Repair, we shall comply with same.

9.3 With regard to the Boiler Service, we warrant that:

  • the Service Engineer has the necessary skill, training, qualification and experience to carry out the works pursuant to the Boiler Repair Agreement;
  • the Service Engineer will carry out the Boiler Service with due skill, care and diligence PROVIDED ALWAYS that where the Service Engineer has complied with all the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines, I.S. 813 the Service Engineer shall be regarded as having met the appropriate standard of skill, care and diligence; and
  • where materials are used for the purposes of the Boiler Service, they will be sound and reasonably fit for the purpose for which they are required.

9.4 In addition to the warranties set out in clauses 9.1, 9.2 and 9.3 above but subject to clause 9.6 below, we will, within a period of 12 months (unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer) from the date of completion of the Boiler Repair, repair or replace free of charge any faulty replacement parts or components supplied by us under the Boiler Repair Agreement. This shall apply only to defects which appear within a period of 12 months (unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer) from the date that the parts and/or components were replaced and provided any defect is notified to Bord Gáis Energy in writing within 21 days of when you become or ought reasonably to have become aware of the defect. Your rights under this clause 9.4 are in addition to and not in substitution of your rights at law.

9.5 You represent and warrant to us that: you are the owner of the Property or have full power and authority to execute and deliver the Boiler Repair Agreement and to comply with the provision of, and perform all of your obligations and exercise all of your rights under the Boiler Repair Agreement; all consents, licences, approvals and authorisations required in connection with the entry into, performance, validity and enforceability of the Boiler Repair Agreement have been obtained and are in full force and effect; and you will perform your obligations and exercise your rights under the Boiler Repair Agreement in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.

9.6 We will not be responsible or have any liability for:

(a) The following faults or defects or any work required to rectify same (including, for the avoidance of doubt, during the 60-day warranty period):

(i) any defect or damage occurring from a failure of the electricity, fuel or water supply;

(iii) any defects or inadequacy attributable to the original design of the central heating system, including but not limited to pitching, sludging of water, limescale formation;
(iv) defects or malfunctions due to faulty materials or workmanship in manufacture;
(v) any defect or malfunction which arises as a result of any other cause not due to the neglect or default of Bord Gáis Energy;
(vi) normal wear and tear or any deterioration in the condition, effectiveness or operation of the central heating installation, radiators, pipework, flue and flue system or any part thereof as a result of its use or the passing of time;
(vii) any consequential or indirect loss suffered because of water leaks and/or a breakdown of the Boiler and the cost of putting right faults caused by damage or not using the appliance, or of interim supply of heat through other means;
(viii) any defect caused through malicious or wilful action, negligence, misuse or third party interference;
(ix) any defect or damage occasioned by fire, lightning, explosion, flood, storm, tempest, frost, impact or other extraneous cause;

12.2 In circumstances where we have issued a Notice of Hazard where we have not been in a position to fully inspect/test any part of the installation of the Boiler we will not accept any responsibility or liability for the quality or condition of the Boiler and for any loss or damage arising out of or in connection with the issuance of a Notice of Hazard by us. 

12.3 Where we have issued a Notice of Hazard identifying remedial action in respect of the Boiler but, in the opinion of the Service Engineer, it is safe to continue with the Boiler Service without you first taking the recommended remedial action, it is solely your responsibility to take the recommended remedial action following the Boiler Service. We will, if possible, provide you with an estimate of the likely time required and cost involved to complete the recommended remedial action. It may also be possible to make arrangements with the Service Engineer for this recommended remedial action to be carried out by us at a later date. 

12.4 Bord Gáis Energy will not be obliged to commence or continue with a Boiler Repair where, in the opinion of a Service Engineer there is a Health and Safety or non conformance to standard issue (which will be detailed in the Notice of Hazard where relevant) that means it is inappropriate, unsafe or otherwise unsuitable for the Boiler Repair Agreement to commence or continue and in such circumstances we may terminate the Boiler Repair Agreement. In such circumstances we will charge you a cancellation fee equal to €30. We reserve the right to contact the relevant local authority if we consider it necessary in the interest of the Health and Safety of you and/or third parties.

12.5 We are not liable or responsible for any losses, liabilities, costs, penalties, fines, damages, defects or personal injuries arising out of or in connection with your decision not to carry out any remedial work recommended to you in a Notice of Hazard or to take any advice given to you by the Service Engineer and/or notified to you in a Notice of Hazard.
