In order for the SCWS product to carry full warranty and support from Broseley Fires, the installation MUST be designed, installed and commissioned by a competent person with one of the following minimum technical competence sets
|Set One||Installer has HETAS Wet H004 and G3 Unvented certificates.|
|Set Two||Installer has HETAS Biomass H005 certificate.|
|Set Three||Installer has MCS Biomass certificate.|
For installations onto open vented heating systems the G3 certificate is not required. If your installation involves other heat sources (solar, gas, electric and heat pumps) then additional competences will be required.
Roles & Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of the retailer to ensure that prospective customer is made fully aware of the installation requirements as well as the responsibilities mentioned below:
- It is the responsibility of the end customer to make sure that their chosen installer meets the minimum competence requirements.
- It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure that the installation is carried out in accordance with the Broseley Fires installation instructions as well as current building regulations. Installations not complying with Broseley Fires installation instructions will not be supported in any way.
INSTALLATIONS CARRIED OUT BY ANY INSTALLER NOT MEETING THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS, WILL RESULT IN VOID PRODUCT WARRANTIES AND WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED BY BROSELEY FIRES IN ANY WAY.
Please note Broseley Fires do not design heating systems, however we do offer guidance in the product installation instructions on the minimum requirements of the system. The installer is responsible for any and all aspects of the installation. A site survey will be necessary to assess the heat requirement of the property and the suitability of the desired appliance for the clients needs. The heating system will need to be designed by the installer and detailed plans produced.
It may be necessary for other tradesman and sub-contractors to become involved in the installation (such as electricians) these individuals should be working to the installers plans and specifications. The installer is ultimately responsible for the final installation (hence they will need to approve all sub-contracted work). Finally the installer MUST provide a commissioning certificate to the client for the final completed installation.
