Specification of Goods

  1. The Goods are as described in the Order.

  2. We may have shown You Marketing Materials to provide You with an approximate idea of the Goods, layout

    or positioning that they describe. Although We have made every effort to display the Goods correctly, they may vary slightly from the colour or composition shown and specifically where they are natural products containing patterns or grains for example. All specifications are approximate only and are subject to normal margins of tolerance for the Goods and their composition in question.

  3. We have taken measurements for the Goods to enable Us to get them manufactured in advance of delivery to You. It may be necessary for Us to carry out a survey to verify Our measurements and to develop an installation plan (see Preparatory Work).

Performance Calculations

  1. We have estimated the energy performance calculations and provided these with Your quotation. Our standard calculations are based on standard calculations provided by EPVS a HIES affiliate partner manufacturer. Where We have referred to energy inflation or other statistical information, We have used information publicly available from the Office for National Statistics.

  2. The performance of energy systems is impossible to predict with certainty due to the variability in fuels and energy sources, climatic variations, local obstructions or environmental conditions and differences from location to location. The estimates provided in this contract are for guidance only and must not be considered as a guarantee of performance.

Preparatory and/or Emergency Work

  1. We will commence work on preparing the Goods for delivery and developing an installation plan from the Commencement Date. We may, at Our discretion, wait until Your right to change Your mind elapses (see Rights to Change Your Mind).

  2. Our preparatory work may include a survey of Your property, assessment for an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) or any other preparatory matter. Our fees and charges for preparatory work are clearly shown on the Order. By placing the Order, You give Us permission to go ahead with any Preparatory Work

specified in the Order. If You change Your mind and cancel the Contract after commencement of these

Preparatory Works, You will be charged the fees shown for them on the Order.

14. If You have requested Emergency Works, this will be clearly shown on the Order and You shall be deemed to have given Us permission to commence with these Emergency Works straight away. In this case We may take temporary action to make Your property safe, secure and watertight, before completing a full repair or replacement as set out in the Order You understand that this means You cannot change Your mind and cancel the Contract in respect of those Emergency Works.

Variations

15.We may need to make minor changes to the Goods specified on the Order if there is a change in laws, regulatory or technical requirements or improvements. These changes will not adversely affect the use or nature of the Goods.

16. You may ask Us to make changes to the specification of the Goods. As We are getting the Goods manufactured in advance of delivery, You must notify Us of any changes to the specification of the Goods that You want to make within 7 days of the Commencement Date. We will then advise You if Your requested change is possible and any consequences of that, including to the Price, the Delivery Date or anything else. Any agreed change will be confirmed by Us in writing.

17. During Our Preparatory Work (perhaps as a result of a survey or as a result of Your EPC assessment), it may be necessary to make more substantial changes to the Order. We will discuss these with You to determine if the change is possible and any consequences of that, including the Price, the Delivery Date or anything else. If significant changes are required, We will place the Contract on hold for up to 14 days to enable You to consider whether or not You wish to proceed. At the end of 14 days, if no agreement on changes is reached, the Contract will be terminated. You will receive a refund of any deposit paid within a further 14 days less, at Our discretion, any fees and charges due for the Preparatory Work completed so far. Any agreed change will be confirmed by Us in writing.

Changing Your Mind

  1. As a member of HIES, We voluntarily provide You with the right to change Your mind. This is over and above Your statutory rights. You have 7 days starting on the day after the Commencement Date to change Your mind and cancel the Contract. This does not apply to the extent that the Contract includes Emergency Works. If You do change Your mind and cancel the Contract, You will receive a full refund of any deposit paid within a further 14 days; however, if We have started Preparatory Work You understand that You will be charged the fees shown for them on the Order.

  2. To change Your mind and cancel the Contract in accordance with the above clause You should tell Us as quickly as possible and confirm this in writing. We have supplied a tear off slip below which You can use, but You do not need to. You can notify Us by any means (see Contact Us).

Delivery and Installation

  1. Any additional delivery or installation costs will be shown on the Order (or any agreed variation to it), otherwise Your delivery and installation costs are included in the Price.

  2. We aim to complete the delivery and installation on or about the Delivery Date, but We will liaise with You over any reasonable changes to that. For the avoidance of doubt time is not of the essence in respect of the Delivery Date.

  1. If a change or delay is caused by something that is within Our reasonable control, We will notify You as soon as reasonably possible and agree with You an alternate Delivery Date. We will take steps to minimise the delay and, if the delay lasts for more than 60 days from the original Delivery Date (unless You have asked for a longer period), We will allow You to cancel the Contract. You will receive a refund of any deposit paid within a further 14 days less, at Our discretion, any fees and charges due for the Preparatory Work completed so far.

  2. If a change or delay is caused by something that is not within Our reasonable control (see Events Outside Our Control), We will notify You as soon as reasonably possible and the change or delay and the reasons for it.

  7. It is possible that a problem with Your property will become apparent during the course of the installation. This could include structural defects, underground obstructions, presence of asbestos or hidden cabling.

  2. You will pay for the Goods and Services as follows:

    (a) You will pay Us a deposit of up to 25% of the Price, on receipt of the Order Confirmation
    (b) Once the Goods have been ordered they will be assigned to You and You will pay Us a further agreed staged interim payment.

  5. Important – if paying for any part of the contract using Home Energy Scotland (HES) funding.

    HES Funding example:

    HES will fund up to £15,000 of the project cost and these funds are paid direct into customers personal bank account in two stage payments. Stage one is 60% before installation, and stage two is 40% after installation. In addition customers will receive a £7500 “cashback contribution” which reduces the initial funding amount by £7500 and leaves the customer only paying back the remaining amount borrowed on an interest free loan basis. There is also an additional £1500 a rural uplift amount which is available in certain circumstances. Please note: It is the customers responsibility to obtain the HES funding and our friendly staff can assist with this process. We will not install any products until customers have been approved for funding. For more information on this please visit the HES website:https://www.homeenergyscotland.org/find-funding-grants-and-loans/interest-free-loans/ detail/
    Customers can use their own funds to make up any part of the contract price and claim the cashback contribution. Whatever means are used the customer must have available funding in place to pay for the system in full on completion of the installation.
