Vokèra Warranty Terms & Conditions
Vokèra Ltd offer customers the comfort of a parts and labour warranty repair service subject to the following terms and conditions.
Vokèra Ltd only obligation under the guarantee shall be to repair or replace the faulty appliance at Vokèra Ltd discretion. This will be carried out where a fault arises from defects within the appliance, caused by either material or workmanship of the manufacturer.
1. The boiler must have been installed and commissioned within 12 months of manufacture by a registered Gas Safe (RGII ROI) installer in accordance with the guidelines in the installation and servicing booklet provided with the boiler.
2. This guarantee does not protect malfunction or damage arising from incorrect installation, commissioning or maintenance procedures, as laid out in the installation handbook, inefficient flue system, poor or incorrect electricity, wrong gas supply or pressure, tampering by inexperienced persons and any other cause not directly due to manufacture.
3. Vokèra Ltd cannot accept responsibility for any costs arising from repair or maintenance carried out by any third party.
4. The “Benchmark” commissioning sheet (RGII Installation Certificate, ROI) must be completed by the installer and left with the boiler for reference purpose.
5. The warranty will commence from the date of installation. Without proof of purchase ie an invoice or completed “Benchmark” commissioning sheet (RGII Installation Certificate, ROI), the warranty will commence from the date of manufacture as detailed on the appliance data plate.
6. To qualify for the full term of warranty, the boiler must be serviced once annually by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer (RGII ROI). Proof of annual service in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions must be provided (e.g. Benchmark Service Record or RGII Service Certificates ROI). If this condition is not met the period of warranty will extend to only 12 months from date of installation.
7. The Vokèra “parts and labour” warranty is applicable to the boiler only. Vokèra controls and accessories, including all time clocks, room thermostats, smart controls and weather compensation devices are sold subject to a 24 month Return to Base Warranty. No engineer service cover is offered on any Vokèra controls and/or accessories.
By registering your appliance, you will be helping us provide you with the best after sales service in the unlikely event that your boiler requires attention during the guarantee period.

c. To any defect, damage or breakdown caused by the design, installation and maintenance of the central heating system.
d. To de-scaling or other work required as a result of hard water scale deposits or from damage caused by aggressive water or sludge resulting from corrosion.
