TERMS & CONDITIONS
PERIOD OF AGREEMENT
Payments will be taken on the 28th day of each month by direct debit, or the next working day. The minimum subscription period is 12 months from the date of the first payment. Thereafter, your agreement is on-going until you tell us you would like to cancel or if we cancel the agreement. You may cancel the agreement at any time after the initial 12-month period subject to pro-rata repayments for any works already carried out (see Cancellation Policy).
If you have more than one boiler, you will be required to pay a separate Service Club membership for each boiler. We will notify you in writing of any changes to pricing or terms and conditions.
Your cover will begin on the date which we process your first payment (28th day of the month). Please note that for any applications received after the 16th day of the month, cover will not begin until the 27th day of the following month. INITIAL SAFETY INSPECTION If you wish to join Flux club, an engineer will attend your property to carry out an annual boiler service and system health & safety inspection.
Should any part of your system be deemed unsafe or not to the required standards for our Service Club, we will charge you the standard one-off fee for an annual boiler service only.
A Carbon Catch engineer will carry out a full boiler service and system inspection once a year. We will inform you in writing via e-mail, SMS and/or post when your service is due.
We may cancel your agreement and/or demand repayments if:
• You have given false information.
• It is not possible to find parts to keep your system working safely.
• You do not make an agreed payment.
• You put our employees’ health and/or safety at risk in any way.
• Your home is unfit to carry out works in.
• We make recommendations to carry out works and you refuse to do so.
• Circumstances arise which make it inappropriate for the contract to continue.
We retain the right to cancel your agreement at any time should we deem it appropriate. We may provide a refund pro-rata to the length of time left of your 12-month agreement term for any customers who have been with us for longer than the initial 12-month period. If you decide to cancel the agreement with us before the end of any 12-month period, we will charge you for any works that have been carried out in that period (including any repairs or boiler servicing charges), less the monthly payments you have made up to that point.

02 We require notification in writing from any Service Club member wishing to cancel with one months notice.
SPARE PARTS & REPAIRS
If we do not carry the spare parts your repair requires on the day, we will endeavour to find parts from our suppliers. We may not always be able to replace parts like-for-like and therefore may use an approved alternative or standard range of product. For example, parts may not always be the same design or colour as the original, but if you wish to provide your own parts we will fit under the terms of the contract. Should we find any boiler parts to be obsolete we will not be able to carry out the associated works and we will instead provide a quotation for a replacement boiler. If there are 3 or more repairs required on a boiler within any 1 year period, it will be deemed beyond economic repair. If a boiler will cost In excess of £400 to repair it will be deemed beyond economic repair. In such circumstances, Carbon Catch Ltd will provide a quotation to replace the boiler with a £400 discount applied.
Any plumbing & heating work will always be carried out by one of our fully qualified engineers. Electrical works may be referred to a vetted NICEIC registered electrician.
