    After placing an order on-line, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted or that a contract has been made. We will confirm acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that we have accepted your order and letting you know when the Product is or will be ready for dispatch ("Order Confirmation"). The contract between us ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.

    The Contract will relate only to those Products we confirm in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply the remaining Products which may have been part of your order until confirmed in a separate Order Confirmation.

    With regards to Orders placed via telephone or in person on our premises, the above conditions in Section 7 shall apply.

  8. RIGHT OF CANCELLATION

    You are entitled to cancel a Contract within 14 days, as set out below. This means that during that time, if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.

    • This cancellation right does not apply to goods made to your specification or any Products which are perishable or become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery. For further details please see our returns policy at paragraph 19 below.
    • Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out below:
      1. Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days). The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
      2. Your Contract is for either of the following one Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days, or multiple Products which are delivered on separate days. The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.
      3. Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product over a set period. The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.
    • To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to email sales@theunderfloorheatingstore.com quoting your order number requesting to cancel the order. If you use this method we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation.
    • You can also contact our Customer Services team by telephone on 01268567016 or by post to The Underfloor Heating Store, Unit 12, Carnival Park, Carnival Way, Basildon, Essex SS14 3WN. If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
    • We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Products supplied, if the loss is as a result of unnecessary handling by you. We will make the reimbursement no later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you any Products supplied.
    • Unless the Product is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If you have returned the Product to us under this condition because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
    • We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
    • If you are a consumer, neither this paragraph nor anything else in these Terms affects your statutory rights. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

    Availability

    Beyond what we say on that page or otherwise on the Website, we cannot be more specific about availability. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail or phone if any Products you order turn out to be unavailable. If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date, we reserve the right to supply substitute goods of at least equivalent quality and price. If no suitable substitute is available, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If we are unable to process your order and you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

  10. RISK AND TITLE

    The Products will remain at our risk until they come into the possession of either you or a person identified by you to take physical possession of the Products. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.

This condition does not affect your statutory rights.

The independent assessor and customer must liaise with us prior to any remedial work being carried out. Failure to do so will negate any liability with regards to the floor covering and associated losses.

    We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for:

    1. death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
    2. fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
    3. any other liability which cannot be limited or excluded by law.

  16. EVENTS BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL

    We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.

  17. WAIVER

  18. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

    These conditions, the Contract and any disputes arising out of or in connection with them (including any non-contractual claims or disputes) are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. You agree, as we do, to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

  19. DELIVERY

    For information on delivery costs and expected delivery times please see our Delivery Information page.

    We rely upon the services of third party couriers, and whilst we endeavor to always deliver in a timely manner there are unfortunately a few occasions when the couriers fail to deliver on the appointed day. This happens rarely, but we cannot be held responsible for the late delivery of an item, or any costs incurred by customers' tradesmen unable to work, please ensure you have your materials before booking in any trades. Our commitment to you is to deliver the Product to the courier.

    Please also bear in mind that we are underfloor heating distributors and not couriers. We pride ourselves on our service, and while that means that we despatch within 24 hours on a next business day service, the deliveries themselves are obviously outside of our control and are subject to variations in weather conditions, localised traffic issues or other factors that could disrupt the service couriers provide. In any event the delivery date will be within 30 days after the Order Confirmation unless we have made alternate arrangements with you.

    Pallet deals, Shower Trays, Lustrolite Panels, Heat Pumps and cylinders can be on a 3-5 day delivery. Please note these consignments can be curb side deliveries and unfortunately the driver will not be able to assist the recipient in unloading (due to insurance policies) or disposing of any packaging.



    We are therefore not responsible for any such delay or consequential loss, but we will of course track your order and do what we can both to keep you informed and to liaise with the courier to help get your consignment delivered on time. If you have any queries concerning your delivery, please do not hesitate to contact us. We work closely with our courier partners to ensure the best possible delivery service to all destinations while keeping the prices as low as possible. Please note; we cannot despatch orders, for customers who wish to use finance as their selected payment method, until we have received the final agreement. This may take up to 24 hours before completion, which means we cannot guarantee same day despatch as we can with alternate payment methods.

    Shipments sent outside the European Union may be subject to import duties and taxes, which may be levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. We are unable to reimburse any costs incurred regardless of the circumstances. For details of Customs charges please consult your own Customs authorities for the latest rates.

    Please note that it is a legal requirement that we declare the full value of the Products (not including shipping charges) on all packages destined outside the European Union, and shipments may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. It is a criminal offence to falsify the details on this form. We cannot inaccurately describe the contents, claim a lower value or mark as a gift. Please do not ask, or expect us to do any of these things.

    No allowance has been made for any additional insulation materials that may be required under either the current Building Regulations or BS EN1264 1-4.

    The pipe coil allocation that has been made in this estimate is based on the room size and connection length detail as entered in to the original design tool. Any substantial deviation away from the original design criteria may during the installation process may result in differing pipe circuit lengths and therefore potential pipe shortages.

    In rooms with large areas of glazing and therefore higher levels of heat loss, some form of supplementary heating may be required during periods of exceptionally cold weather. If unsure, please check with an independent heating engineer who can run a SAP calculation for you.

    In bathrooms and en-suites it is recommended that an additional towel rail is installed so as to compliment the underfloor heating system when necessary.

    For the purposes of this design it is assumed that the overall floor resistance value of any floor coverings do not exceed 1.5 Tog (0.15m2K/W).
