(PRWEB UK) 13 June 2013
The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is imposing the warranty scheme on all competent person schemes, reports HVP on June 12. Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) has been given until June 2014 to apply the scheme and guarantee that all registered installers who self-certify building and installation work will show the warranty to customers. This new regulation applies to all those in England and Wales and, whilst it is not compulsory in the Channel Isles and Isle of Man, they have voluntarily implemented the warranty.
The warranty is part of an insurance scheme provided by OFTEC Insurance Services that intends to offer reassurance to customers when installation work is carried out in their homes. The warranty covers costs incurred as a result of correcting any work or installation caused by breaching building regulations relating to the installation, for up to six years. As the warranty covers the installation of oil boilers, cookers, plumbing appliances, electrical work and ventilation, customers can be reassured that they are covered by the warranty.
OFTEC’s registration manager, Adrian Lightwood, believes that as the warranty gives reassurance to customers, it is an important aspect of customer service. He told HVP that:
“We hope that installers will endorse the warranty for the benefit of both themselves and their customers.”
