? My funds have been taken before my boiler has been installed, why is this?
All payments aim to be taken after the boiler has been installed. However, as mentioned in our terms and conditions, in some cases they will be taken the 6th day from entering your card details on our website. This can be found in our terms and conditions.
? Do I have to order online, or can I speak to someone?
Of course! You can Call 01924 925912 and speak to a member of our advisers in the office! They will be able to answer any questions you may have and place the order for you!
? Coronavirus Information & Update 2021
We are still installing boilers throughout lockdown areas safely. Read our coronavirus update here:
** Our COVID-19 policy – Updated for 2021**

We are committed to keeping the installation 'contact-free' and have measures in place so that you and our installers can be the safest from coronavirus.
Guidelines for our installers who will be fitting your new boiler:
• Clean and disinfect vans inside and out.
• Clean all tools with a disinfectant spray
• Spray all areas and wipe down where you are working
• We have supplied gloves and overshoes to prevent cross-contamination
• Please ask all customers to leave you alone in any room you are working in and clean down anything you will be touching.
• Our installers are told not to accept drinks and food at the installation
• Clean down big change (mobile tablet) device before and after a visit

? How does the extended warranties work?
When we offer an extended warranty on Worcester Bosch and Viessmann boilers, at selected times, this works as below:
- You get a manufacturer warranty with Viessmann or Worcester Bosch, the manufacturer. This includes call-outs, parts and labour - you can use ANY Gas Safe registered person or company, and this would be valid as per your terms with your manufacturer.
- Boiler Central then extend this warranty by 2-years which is exclusive to us. This warranty period is carried out by ourselves and also includes parts, labour and call outs.
As long as you get you boiler serviced annually, you will qualify for the 10-year manufacturer's warranty as mentioned above. If you would like to take advantage of our free extended 2 years, then your boiler must be serviced by us every year. This is so that we can be sure that your boiler has been serviced to our high standard so we can be comfortable in offering this exclusive extended warranty period.
What's the catch? There isn't one.
We charge £60 to £80, including VAT, for an annual boiler service which includes a FREE Gas Safety Certificate as standard (most companies charge extra for this), and we can provide Landlord documents free of charge too. This is the typical price you would pay any Gas Safe engineer to service your boiler in the UK, if not at the cheaper end. We can not give 2 years extended warranty on any work that we can not guarantee the quality and experience of, that our Gas Safe installers have, hence why for the extra 2 years, you need to have it serviced by us.
You can call us annually and we will come out and service your boiler on a one-off fee for £60 to £80 including VAT, or you can sign up to one of our boiler and home cover plans.
3 out of the 4 plans that we offer have an annual boiler service included in your monthly price, so you will never have to worry about paying anything more for your annual boiler service. Some of these plans cover things such as your radiators, lost keys, electrics, internal and external plumbing, home security systems, leaks and many other home emergencies.

? How do I send my photographs to you?
When you have completed your order, you will be emailed with your order information and here the email address is provided for you to email photographs to.
We also have a dedicated Whatsapp number where you can text us your photographs - after all, it is 2021!
Soon you will also be able to send us your photographs through Facebook messenger too.
? Why are your Viessmann boilers so cheap?
That's simply down to the huge volume that we sell through this website. Plus, we have no salesperson commission to pay :)
? Is there a difference between private and landlord warranty lengths?
No, the boiler warranty is the same length no matter who purchases the boiler. We offer a market leading 12 year warranty on all new Viessmann boilers :)
? Is my price fixed?
The price that our website gives you for your property is a fixed price and you will not be charged extra on the day of installation. The cost includes the boiler, any pipework upgrades, a new boiler flue, thermostat setup and everything else. All done by a Gas Safe registered installer.
? Will my old boiler and/or tanks be removed from my property?
Yes absolutely. We always take away the old boiler and any tanks, hot water cylinders and also cold water tanks where possible. The only time we do have issues with this is if tanks are up in a loft - they are often larger than the access hatch so we would drain them down and have to leave them there. You can also opt to keep any of your existing boiler or tanks if you wish.
? I am a landlord, can I buy a boiler?
Yes you just need to ensure the installation address is the one that you put in at checkout and not your home address. If you would like to purchase more than 1 boiler, you need to re-do the buying process again. It only takes a few minutes anyway :)
? Can I really buy a boiler online?
Absolutely! We ask the same questions that a surveyor (salesperson!) would do about your home, and once you have ordered we ask for some pictures of your existing boiler and a few other pictures and that's all we need. Boilers seem complex, but as long as our guys carry extra kit, your boiler will be getting installed on your installation date with no additional costs to pay.
? I have Power of Attorney/Court of Protection over a plan holder. How do i inform you?
We would need a copy of the Power of Attorney, the Court of Protection document or a letter of authorisation from the customer.
