Viessmann Warranty

A boiler warranty is designed to provide customers with added peace of mind in knowing that should a fault occur with a component within the boiler, the manufacturer could be liable to replace or repair the part without cost to you. Viessmann boilers come with a manufacturer-backed warranty of up to 5 years, with the option to extend, (depending on the boiler model) and could provide you with cover for faulty parts or parts integral to the boiler; this could include the controls. Terms and conditions apply with all warranties and they may be subject to change at any time, so ensure that you check through them thoroughly or contact us if you’d like to learn more about Viessmann boiler warranties***.

 

Viessmann Service & Repairs

It is often required by manufacturers for you to organise a yearly service. This could help maintain your boiler system by identifying and rectifying any existing or potential faults. During a boiler service, your Gas Safe engineer will check that your boiler is functioning safely, efficiently and effectively. Maintaining your boiler could help prolong its working life, so it could be an investment well worth making***!

We understand that a boiler breakdown can be highly distressing and inconveniencing. Whilst your boiler is in warranty, you can contact Viessmann directly in the event of a boiler breakdown or fault. Alternatively, feel free to contact us, we could help to get your boiler back up and running as quickly as possible.
