Worcester boiler warranty: The complete guide

Getting a new boiler installed is a big commitment. Before you pick the perfect new boiler for your home, you'll probably want to know more about the length of boiler warranty or guarantee that each brand offers.

Each boiler brand has varying warranty lengths for different models, so make sure to certify this for your chosen boiler before purchasing. You should also make yourself aware of the terms and conditions of your new boiler's warranty, as failure to follow them will invalidate it.

So read on to find out everything you need to know about the Worcester Bosch boiler guarantee and warranty, so you won't have to worry if you need to make a claim.

Boilers from Worcester Bosch

Worcester Bosch is a well-known UK boiler manufacturer renowned for being one of the most trusted brands in the business. Founded in 1962, Worcester Bosch has since maintained its reputation of providing homes with high-quality and reliable LPG and gas boilers.

With an excellent Trustpilot rating of 4.6 from thousands of reviews, you can expect nothing but top quality with one of Worcester Bosch's boilers.

What is a Worcester Bosch boiler guarantee?

Each Worcester Bosch boiler comes with a guarantee as standard. This differs from other brands, which usually offer a boiler warranty.

This guarantee ensures the owner that their boiler meets the required standards. If the homeowner notices a problem with their boiler, the guarantee provides them with peace of mind knowing they will receive a boiler repair should they need it.

Each warranty or guarantee length will differ depending on the make and model of the boiler. But typically, boiler warranties and guarantees last between 2 and 10 years.

Boiler guarantee vs warranty: what's the difference?

Boiler guarantees and warranties are quite similar. Boilers will come with one or the other as standard, and they all vary in length. So what's the difference?

The main difference is that warranties often only cover certain boiler parts, and the manufacturer can charge call-out fees, which often come as an unexpected expense to the owner. Manufacturer warranties are normally bolted onto the purchase, so this usually comes at an additional cost.

A guarantee, on the other hand, is a legally binding agreement and adds to your rights under consumer law. This is a promise from the manufacturer that they will repair your boiler for the full duration of your guarantee period, no matter the cause.

A Worcester Bosch guarantee covers the entire boiler, and you'll rest assured knowing you won't be charged any call-out fees should you need a visit from an engineer - as long as you've followed the terms and conditions of the boiler guarantee (more on this later).

A boiler guarantee is often seen as a mark of quality. The manufacturer is confident enough to fix any parts if your boiler breaks.

What's covered by a Worcester Bosch boiler guarantee?

Your boiler will likely keep working efficiently and effectively, as it should, for years to come. But in the unlikely event that something does go wrong with your boiler whilst still under the guarantee period, Worcester Bosch will come out and fix it at no extra cost.

The Worcester Bosch boiler guarantee covers:

  • Replacement parts
  • Call out fees
  • Labour costs

How long do Worcester Bosch boiler guarantees last?

Each Worcester Bosch boiler comes with a guarantee as standard. However, this term will differ depending on the boiler you're buying.

If you choose a Lifestyle boiler directly from Worcester Bosch, you can expect a 12-year guarantee when you choose an accredited installer to fit your boiler and system filter. For oil boilers, guarantees start at two years. However, certified installers can offer up to a 7-year guarantee when you purchase a system filter and a new Worcester Bosch cylinder.

When purchasing a Worcester Bosch combi boiler from BOXT, you can expect up to 10 years guarantee as standard, installation from a Gas Safe registered engineer and a magnetic filter to keep your boiler in tip-top condition.

How do I register my Worcester Bosch boiler guarantee?

Your Gas Registered engineer will usually register your boiler warranty or guarantee for you. However, if this isn't the case, it's a quick and easy process that you can do yourself.

Visit the Worcester Bosch website and head to 'Register guarantee', where you can register your boiler by entering some details like your address and the boiler installation date.

If you choose to have your boiler installed by us, we’ll register the manufacturer warranty for you - you won’t need to do a thing. 

Check your boiler guarantee length

If you've already had a Worcester Bosch boiler installed (or any other products) but are unsure whether it's still covered under the guarantee, simply sign up for a MyBosch account where you can find out everything about your boiler in one place.

Alternatively, call the Worcester Bosch customer care team on 0330 123 9339.

How do I keep my boiler warranty valid?

Terms and conditions tend to be something we skim over without paying much attention. However, when it comes to the warranty of an expensive item like a boiler, it is always advisable to ensure you have read and understood it.

Failure to adhere to the terms and conditions of a guarantee for Worcester Bosch boilers could invalidate your guarantee.

Terms and conditions state that you must:

  • Register the boiler within 30 days of installation
  • Ensure the boiler is only used in a light commercial or domestic environment.
  • Purchase and install the boiler within Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, and the Republic of Ireland
  • Not relocate the boiler after installation without written authorisation from Worcester Bosch.
  • Have the boiler serviced annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer
  • Claim within the guarantee period

Maintain your boiler guarantee with a Service plan from BOXT

You can maintain your Worcester Bosch boiler guarantee by following the outlined terms and conditions. One of these requirements includes having your boiler serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer every 12 months. If you don't keep up with these annual services, you won't be covered by the guarantee if your boiler has a problem.

Luckily, at BOXT, we offer service plans, so you can spread the cost over 12 months and let us take care of everything. 

Service Plan

The BOXT Service plan guarantees an annual service by a friendly, local installer from BOXT. This plan helps to spread the cost of your boiler service across the year rather than paying in one lump sum.

Once you've signed up, you can leave the rest to us! When it's time for your boiler service, we'll contact you to arrange a date and time convenient for you.
