If the heat pump has not been serviced annually the heat pump guarantee will become invalid.

7.The guarantee will cover all major components of the heat pump against manufacturing defects from the installation date, provided that the heat pump is not beyond economic repair. If the heat pump is beyond economic repair, the guarantee will not cover the replacement of such components.

Please note that the guarantee on any replacement parts does not extend the duration of the guarantee beyond the original term.

9. Invoices for attendance and repair of this heat pump by third parties will not be accepted for payment unless pre-authorised in writing by Vaillant.

  • your heat pump is serviced each calendar year. The cost of the annual service is not included in the guarantee and service details must be recorded in the Benchmark logbook and made available for inspection during any engineer's visit.

13. The guarantee does not include cover for fair wear and tear, wilful damage, abnormal storage or working conditions,accidental damage or negligence by you or by any third party and failure by you or any third party to operate or use the heat pump in accordance with the operating instructions.
