Why and how does Worcester, Bosch Group offer accreditation to some installers?
Worcester want to provide homeowners with peace of mind when they are upgrading their home heating system and only invite heating engineers who are deemed as reputable, quality conscious and representing value for money.
Worcester Accredited Installers must have relevant Gas Safe, OFTEC and/or MCS appr oval. WAI’s must also have attended Logic certified training courses on boilers, solar thermal systems, heat pumps and/or underfloor heating.
Worcester check the installers’ Gas Safe, OFTEC and/ or MCS accreditation on a regular basis. However we always recommend to homeowners that they verify a heating companies membership status with the awarding bodies directly via their relevant websites.
The standard Worcester product guarantee period is usually 2 years. Many of the accredited installers can offer longer guarantee periods ranging from 3 to 10 years depending on the type of boiler and parts used.
Worcester also run national guarantee promotions, so please check the Worcester website or ask your installer for up-to-date offers and product information.
Why do I need a heating and hot water installer?
Due to the complexity of modern heating systems, installation, service or repair work should only be undertaken by a qualified heating engineer.
This is why most manufacturers of heating and hot water appliances such as boilers, solar thermal and heat pumps only supply through trade merchants, rather than directly to end users.
