3.1.1. Combi boiler

The boiler currently installed in your home must be a wall hung combi boiler and must be replaced with a new Worcester Bosch wall hung combi boiler as advertised in the Express Boiler Packages at https://www.worcester-bosch.co.uk/support/troubleshooting/faqs/express/what-is-included-in-express 

3.1.2. Natural gas

The fuel supply to your current boiler must be natural gas. LPG and oil boilers will not be eligible for an Express Service installation.

The flue must exit the building horizontally from the boiler through a wall. Vertical flues exiting through a building roof will not be eligible for an Express Service installation.

Your current boiler must be installed in line with the current legal regulations and building standards to be eligible for an Express Service installation. For more details, please refer to the current boiler install criteria here.

3.2. In order to be able to assess whether the Eligibility Criteria are met, you will have to provide Bosch with pictures of the current boiler and installation as requested on the Express webpage when issuing your installation request. Bosch may contact you via telephone and/or email to request additional information or pictures. If the information provided by you is, at Bosch’s discretion, unsatisfactory, Bosch will not be able to proceed with the Express Service installation request. 

3.3. If you do not meet the Eligibility Criteria, Bosch may refer you to the WAI search tool, or may provide you with a quotation from an Express Installer which  exceeds the Maximum Installation Price (see clause 4 below) to reflect the additional work and/or provides an Installation Date outside the 72 hours’ period. 

3.4. The questions about the Eligibility Criteria must be answered accurately. If, at the time of the Express Installation, the factual or technical situation is different to what is expected according to the pictures sent and answers given relating to the Eligibility Criteria, the Express Installer is entitled, without any liability towards you, to:

3.4.1. terminate the Installation Contract (see below clause 5) and agree to a new price exceeding the formerly quoted price, and/or reschedule a new Installation Date (thereby exceeding the 72 hours’ period), or, 

3.4.2. terminate the Installation Contract without any new offer. 

Under such circumstances, Bosch shall in no event be held liable, or be obliged to refund the Confirmation Payment.
