It’s April. A season renowned for change. New life. Clocks changing and so on. We have some very exciting changes to announce this Spring so keep your eyes peeled! Our first news is that we are launching a brand-new parts and labour warranty to cover all Air Source Heat Pump units bought from us.
Graham Hendra, Director of Freedom Heat Pumps, explained more: “Warranty is a hot potato in the world of heat pumps. Every company offers different warranties covering various issues and faults leaving installers and consumers in a state of confusion. Freedom Heat Pumps have always been driven by our core values, Sales, Service, and Success. We are a market leader in terms of service and want to reflect this inner warranty offering.”
The new warranty, which is effective from 2nd April 2019, applies to all units that are registered at www.freedomhp.co.uk and have associated address and serial number details provided. If the install has been completed by an installer that is completing their first installation with Freedom then photos of the installation will also be required.
Sales Director, Chris Higgs, explained more: “Many of our installers want to focus only on the supply and installation of the unit and then take the option of having someone else maintain it through its life. By simply clicking a box Freedom Heat Pumps can ensure the unit is serviced throughout its life. All the unit’s details will be forwarded to one of our maintenance partners who will offer the end user a maintenance agreement going forward. If the installer wants to look after the unit themselves then they also have this option. The warranty registration gives an automatic 3-year warranty from the date the unit gets to site, this can be extended in years 3 and 5 to make it a full 7-year warranty. We want to check through the units life that it is being looked after and maintained regularly before extending the warranty. Ultimately our focus is on a successful, sustainable renewable opportunity.”
The Freedom Heat Pump warranty will cover all parts and, with £10,000 worth of spare parts stock held in the UK, which will be delivered on a next day service. The labour allowance will be credited to the installers account with an allowance of £50 for site attendance, £50 for replacement of parts and up to £200 allowance for more complicated issues.
