These are the terms and conditions we supply products to you, whether these are goods or services.
-Why you should read them:
These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there are a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
-Who we are:
We are Moorhouse Heating Limited (sometimes displaying as MHL), a company registered in England and Wales. Our company registration number is 8781197. Within these terms and conditions, we may also refer to Moorhouse Heating Limited with the words ‘we, us, ourselves, or our’. Our registered office is The Old Post Office, 19 Banbury Road, Kidlington, OX5 1AQ. Our VAT number is 207 8632 04. Our trading address is Suite 2, G-CON Tower, Emmervale Court, Midland Road, Cirencester GL7 1PZ
-How to contact us:
You can contact us by telephoning our customer service team at 01285 407123 or by writing to us at our head office Suite 2, G-CON Tower, Emmervale Court, Midland Road, Cirencester GL7 1PZ or by emailing us at email@example.com
-How we may contact you:
If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order. When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes email.
-How we will accept your order:
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to confirm your booking, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
-If we cannot accept your order: If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you. This might be because the product is out of stock because of unexpected limits on our resources, which we could not reasonably plan for. We have identified an error in the product’s price or description or because we are unable to meet a deadline we have specified.
-Your order number:
We will assign a job reference number to your order and tell you what it is when we confirm your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
-We only sell or provide services in the UK:
Our website is solely for the promotion of our products and services in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK.
-Products may vary slightly from their pictures:
Images of products or services on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Your product or service may vary slightly from those images.
-Product packaging may vary:
Packaging of products may vary from those shown in images on our website.
-Making sure your measurements are accurate:
If we are providing any product or service based on measurements you have given to us, you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure by contacting us.
We will guarantee our workmanship, including materials, labour and parts, for a MAXIMUM period of 30 days from the date the work was completed and/or parts installed. If an issue occurs (within the 30 day period) directly related to labour, parts or materials supplied by ourselves, we will not charge you the cost of remedial works (for both labour, parts or materials). However, if we have provided specific advice on completing the work and you do not follow that advice, this guarantee will not be in effect and will be void. If the information provided by you concerning a guarantee claim is not sufficient or correct and therefore, we are unable to carry out the remedial works, this guarantee will not be in effect and will be void. In those circumstances, our rights under clause 10 are fully reserved. If you would like to find out more about your rights under this guarantee, please contact us. In certain circumstances, installed equipment may come with a manufacturers guarantee, this may be longer than our 30-day guarantee. In this instance, we may ask you to contact the manufacturer yourself to organise a claim. Moorhouse Heating Limited have no association or connection with separate manufacturer guarantees. Moorhouse Heating Limited are not responsible for any work carried out by a third party. Within the 30 day guarantee period, only Moorhouse Heating Limited and an equipment manufacturer are able to work on the installed equipment. If you engage the services of a third party, your 30-day guarantee will be voided. We will not be liable for any costs incurred in the usage of a third party, either within the 30 day guarantee period or beyond it.
If a Moorhouse Heating Limited warranty repair requires additional labour or materials not associated with the original service, repair or installation, these will be billed at additional cost, and we may ask you to pay for these separately before we attend.
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply, or anything else that would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 8 – Your rights to end the contract).
-We may make minor changes to the product or service;
to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements.
-More significant changes to the product or service:
In addition, we may make more significant changes to a service or product, including a product or service mentioned on a quotation supplied by ourselves. For instance, occasionally, it may not be possible to install a product due to the unavailability of space or unsuitability of existing associated equipment. In this instance, we may not inform you of the change and may not provide a refund.
– Changes to your guarantee period:
Due to occasional complications in the supply or installation of a product, it may not be possible to provide the full length of a manufacturers guarantee, even if the length of guarantee has been quoted by ourselves. If unexpected installation conditions change our ability to provide a quoted guarantee, we may not provide you with a refund.
The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our booking app or verbally provided when booking our services.
When we provide the products:
-If the products are goods:
If the products are goods, we will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
– If the products are one-off services:
We will begin the services on the date set out in the order. The estimated completion date for the services is as told to you during the order process.
– If the products are ongoing services:
We will supply the services or goods to you until either the services are completed, or you end the contract as described in clause 8, or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 10.
-We are not responsible for delays outside our control:
If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control, including by third-party contractors or suppliers, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know, and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay, you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
-If you are not at home when the product is delivered:
If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
-If you do not allow us access to provide services:
If you do not allow us access to your property to perform the services as arranged (and you do not have a good reason for this), we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result. If we are unable to contact you or re-arrange access to your property, we may end the contract, and clause 10 will apply despite our reasonable efforts.
-You have legal rights if we deliver any goods or services late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any goods or services, then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
we have refused to deliver the goods;
delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances), or
you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
-Setting a new deadline for delivery:
If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away or do not have the right to do so under clause 7, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
-Ending the contract for late delivery:
If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.8 or clause, you can cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered.
If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them) unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery. If the goods have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 0800 061 4567 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label or to arrange collection.
-When you become responsible for the goods:
A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us, or you or a carrier organised by you collect it from us.
-When you own goods:
You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
-What will happen if you do not give the required information to us:
We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. If you do not give us this information or give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need.
-Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you:
We may have to suspend the supply of a product to deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes or to;
update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to;
make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
-Your rights if we suspend the supply of products or services:
We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending the product or service supply unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product or service, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a product or service if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case, for a period of more than 48 hours, and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
-We may also suspend the supply of the products if you do not pay:
if you do not pay us for the products or services when you are supposed to (see clause 12.4), and you still do not make payment within 48 hours of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend the supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending the supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 12.). We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products, we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 12).
You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed, you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11
If you have just changed your mind about the product, you may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions, and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
– Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do;
If you are ending a contract for a reason, the contract will end immediately, and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided, and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered, and you do not wish to proceed;
there is a risk that the supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 48 hours; or
you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late (see clause 7.8).
-Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013):
For most products bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
-When you don’t have the right to change your mind:
You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of;
services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
– How long do I have to change my mind:
How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
Have you bought services?
If so, you have 28 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services, you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
Have you bought goods?
If so, you have 28 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case, you have until 28 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods;
Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period. In this case, you have until 28 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods;
– Ending the contract where we are not at fault, and there is no right to change your mind:
Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services, and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault, and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately, and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided, but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
-You must compensate us if you break the contract:
If you end the contract for any reason, we may refund any money you have paid in advance for products or services we have not provided. However, we reserve our right entirely to deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the costs we will incur as a result of you breaking the contract. For the avoidance of doubt, this may include the full cost of any of our products or services along with additional cancellation fees.
-Tell us you want to end the contract:
To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following;
Phone or email. Call customer services on 0800 061 4567 or email us at email@example.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address;
By post. Write to us and post it to us at the address above. Or simply write to us at that address, including details of what you bought, when you ordered or received it and your name and address;
-Returning products after ending the contract:
If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them, post them back to us at Suite2, G-CON Tower, Emmervale Court, Midland Road, Cirencester GL7 1PZ or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please call customer services on 0800 061 4567 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange collection. If you are exercising your right to change your mind, you must send off the goods within 28 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
-When we will pay the costs of return:
We will pay the costs of return;
if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong; or
if you are exercising your right to change your mind;
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind), you must pay the costs of return
-What we charge for collection:
If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
-How we will refund you:
We will refund you the price you paid for the products, including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
-Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind:
-If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods if this has been caused by your handling them in a way that would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost, but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied compared to the full coverage of the contract.
-When your refund will be made:
We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind, then;
If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9
In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
-when cancelling a scheduled appointment
You can cancel a scheduled apointment and recieve a full refund anytime up untill 24-hours before the booking, after which no refund will be provided.
-We may end the contract for a product or service at any time by calling or writing to you if:
The job is different to the description provided by yourself
There are health and safety concerns
There are unforeseen problems that mean completion of the job will result in unforeseen extra costs to ourselves
There are issues with vehicle parking that mean completion of the job will result in unforeseen extra costs to ourselves
There are technical issues that mean completion of the job will result in unforeseen extra costs to ourselves
You do not make any payment to us when it is due, and you still do not make payment within 5 days of us reminding you that payment is due.
You do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products or services.
You do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us.
Within a reasonable time, you do not allow us access to your premises to supply the services.
-If for any reason your job is cancelled by ourselves we will not provide you with any form of compensation
-How to tell us about problems:
We are really sorry if you are not happy with our service and we would like to put it right quickly. We know that sometimes things go wrong, and we want to hear from you, so we sort things out and improve our products and service.

-Summary of your legal rights:
We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the product. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information, please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is goods, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product, your legal rights entitle you to the following:
1. Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
2. Up to six months: if your goods can’t be repaired or replaced, then you’re entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
3. Up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time, you may be entitled to some money back.
4. If the fault can’t be fixed, or if it hasn’t been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, you can get some or all of your money back.
5. If you can show the fault has damaged your device and we haven’t used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation
See also clause 8.
-If your product is a service, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:
1. You can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it’s not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can’t fix it.
2. If you haven’t agreed on a price beforehand, what you’re asked to pay must be reasonable.
3. If you haven’t agreed on a time beforehand, it must be carried out within a reasonable time frame
See also Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013)
-Your obligation to return rejected products:
If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products, you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 0800 061 4567 or email at email@example.com to arrange collection.
-Where to find the price for the product:
The price of the product will be the price indicated on your quotation, email or provided verbally when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product or service advised to you is correct. However, please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you ordered.
-We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT:
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
-What happens if we got the price wrong:
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products or services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
-When you must pay and how you must pay:
We accept payment with most credit and debit card providers; we also accept payment by cheque or bank transfer. We do not accept payment by cash.
All products and services must be paid for as soon as the job is complete unless otherwise stated in writing by ourselves via an email, letter, quotation, estimate or contract. In certain circumstances and for certain job types, we may ask for a deposit before the job begins, the deposit must be paid before the job begins, or we reserve the right to cancel the job without providing any notice.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT NO REFUND WILL BE PROVIDED IF YOU CANCEL OUR SCHEDULED SERVICES OR GOODS WITHIN 24 HOURS OF ARRIVAL/DELIVERY
-We can charge interest if you pay late:
If you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank Plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
-What to do if you think an invoice is wrong:
If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved, we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
-When should you pay for your goods or services
Your invoice for goods or services will be due for full payment as soon as you receive it. We do not accept any extended payment terms unless we have provided an invoice with a deposit option. In this instance, you must pay the deposit amount as soon as you receive the invoice and the remaining amount as soon as the invoiced work is complete.
We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us if we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both you and we knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products [as summarised in clause 11.2 OR including the right to receive products which are: as described and match the information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care and, were installed by us, correctly installed]; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
-When we are not liable for damage to your property:
If we are providing services on your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services. We are not responsible for the poor workmanship of third-party suppliers or their sub-contractors. Following the installation of equipment, we will NOT be responsible for the making good of walls, tiling, pipe boxing, worktops, cupboards or any other decorative item, which has been damaged or disturbed through standard installation procedures.
-Following the installation of a combination (combi) boiler, system boiler, unvented hot water cylinder or when connecting any low-pressure heating/hot water system to a high-pressure heating/hot water system:
Under certain circumstances, if you have separate shower pumps (or showers with integral pumps), these may no longer be suitable and may need to be disconnected. In this instance, MHL will not be liable for replacing/installing new showers.
If you have water or heating pipes laid in solid floors (concrete/screed/cement), a small possibility leak may occur due to the higher operating pressure of an unvented cylinder. MHL will not be liable for repairing/replacing leaks or pipework.
Under certain circumstances, the water main between your stop cock and the proposed unvented cylinder may require upgrading in size; this is not included in your quotation.
-Following a boiler flue installation:
Following the installation of a boiler flue leading from inside to outside your property, there may be a hole in the exterior wall where your previous boiler flue was positioned. Our installers will make good this hole to a level that satisfies gas safety obligations and basic weathering requirements. However, this hole will not be made good to professional builder standard, and it’s likely the brick/stonework will not match your existing wall. You may require a builder to provide a professional finish. However, extra costs associated with this are not included in your quotation, and Moorhouse Heating Limited will not be liable for whole or part payment of any extra costs incurred.
-When Powerflushing your heating system:
When power flushing a heating system, it’s possible one (or more) leaks could occur on the radiators, pipework or boiler. We will not be responsible for extra labour/material costs associated with repairing leaks.
We are unable to guarantee a power flush will successfully solve your heating issue. Further work may be required, including the possibility of a new boiler/heating system, in this instance. MHL will not be responsible for any associated extra labour/material costs.
-Following the draining down of your heating or hot water system:
In certain circumstances, it may be necessary to drain down your heating or hot water system to complete the agreed installation or maintenance task. In this instance, damage can be caused to all or part of your heating or hot water system. Following draining and subsequent refilling, it is entirely possible that part (or all) of your heating/hot water system will no longer work satisfactorily (or not work at all). This is mainly due to the pre-existing system contaminants blocking pipework or appliances. In this instance, we will not be liable for any extra costs associated with repairing (including power flushing) or replacing all (or part) of your heating or hot water system. Please be aware you may require a replacement of your entire heating and/or hot water system, and any costs associated with this (for both labour and materials) will not be covered by ourselves.
-When working in buildings with specialist flooring:
When working in buildings with specialist flooring, we will not be responsible for damage caused directly or indirectly by ourselves (to the flooring). This includes (but is not limited to) gyms, sports halls, film/photography studios, laboratories, dance studios and arenas. We will not be liable for any labour or material costs incurred in the repair or replacement (part or all) of the floor covering or floor base.
-When a job takes longer than the estimated time (job overrun)
Job completion times provided by ourselves are an estimated time only. It is possible the job will take much longer than estimated and therefore overrun. In this instance, we will not be liable for any costs incurred by the homeowner, business or tenant in relation to this outcome. If emergency measures are instigated by a client such as a homeowner, tenant, resident or paying guest being placed in emergency accommodation, we will not be liable for any costs incurred and will not pay compensation of any kind.
-When essential services are not re-instated
Due to job overrun, labour/material supply issues or health and safety concerns, essential services such as hot or cold water, heating, gas or electrics may not be reinstated following work carried out by ourselves. In this instance, we will not be liable for any costs incurred by the homeowner, business or tenant in relation to this outcome. If emergency measures are instigated by a client such as a homeowner, resident, paying guest or tenant being placed in emergency accommodation, we will not be liable for any costs incurred and will not pay compensation of any kind.
-When leaks or damage occurs on equipment not installed by ourselves
We will not be responsible for damage to pipework or equipment not installed by ourselves. When we are installing or maintaining equipment it is possible the disturbance could cause damage (such as a leak) to existing pipework, fittings or equipment. In this instance, we will not be liable for any repair/replacement costs incurred to you. We will also not be liable for any damage caused to your property.
-When installing a magnetic filter
When we provide a quotation for a replacement boiler we may also include (or provide an option for) a magnetic filter. The filter may extend the boiler manufacturer’s warranty period. If you accept our boiler quotaion and the filter element within it, there is a possibility the filter will not be able to be installed (due to adverse site conditions). In this instance, we will refund you the cost of the filter only. If the filter can not be installed, the manufacturer’s warranty period may be reduced in length. In this instance, we will not compensate you for the reduced warranty period or provide any further financial compensation beyond the refund of the filter.
-When specifying heating/hot water appliances
We may recommend, advise, specify, or quote to install /replace heating/hot water appliances such as a boiler, water heater, or air heater. In this instance, the specification of the appliance will be opinion based only as we will not have performed an energy/heat loss survey of your building. If the appliance recommended by ourselves underperforms and/or the output is deemed inadequate, Moorhouse Heating Limited will not be responsible for any costs incurred in replacing the appliance/installation (for either labour or materials). We recommend you seek advice from an energy loss specialist and have a professional survey carried out to gauge your heating/hot water requirements before taking advice or accepting a quotation from ourselves.
-We may transfer this agreement to someone else:
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens, and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
-You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee):
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. We may not agree if you are in breach of any of your obligations to us under these terms. However, you may transfer our guarantee at clause 8.4 to a person who has acquired the product or, where the product is services, any item or property in respect of which we have provided the services. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property.
-Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to):
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 15.2in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
– If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force:
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
-Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later:
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and do not chase you, but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment later.
-Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings:
These terms are governed by English law, and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
When installing any equipment including boilers, hot water cylinders, radiators, and parts, we reserve the right to NOT install them to the manufacturer’s recommended guidelines, requirements, or instructions.
