Our Contract

When you place an order to purchase a Product from fastwarm.com, your order represents an offer to us to purchase a Product and all orders are subject to acceptance by us.

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. From the time you take receipt of your Invoice, you have from then until the time of delivery to inform us (either in writing or by telephone) that you do not accept our terms and conditions. In these circumstances, your order will be cancelled accordingly.

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@fastwarm.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 0800 023 4203 or by post to Fastwarm, 6 Bentalls Park, Basildon, Essex, SS14 3BN. 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.

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.

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.

Returns Policy

All returns are subject to the below conditions and our Terms and Conditions of sale.

All orders have a 30 day return policy

You may cancel your order within 14 calendar days from the day after you receive all goods in an order. Once you've cancelled an order you then have a further 14 days to send the goods back to us.

All items MUST be returned with our Returns Form. Returned items without this form cannot be processed. Items returned to us must be unused and in their original packaging so they are fit for resale. We cannot accept any returns if the original packaging is damaged or covered with delivery labels. They must contain all parts and accessories as originally received. We will happily replace or exchange any goods that are received as faulty or not fit for purpose.

We can only accept returned mats or cables that have NOT been unrolled. Any returned items in an unrolled condition will be refused for exchange/refund as they cannot be resold. If you are unsure the item will not fit the above requirements, please call our technical team and they will happily advise you.

Water Underfloor Heating Quote Terms

All water underfloor heating quotes are supplied with the following assumptions: -

  • All measurements and calculations are in accordance with the plans as provided to us at the time of design, however, Fastwarm cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of any detail as shown.
  • It is assumed that the minimum insulation standards of the building to be heated is in accordance with the current Part L1A of the building regulations or better for new installations. If unsure, please check with an independent heating engineer who can run a SAP calculation for you.
  • All system heat output figures are based on the performance data as shown in the current Fastwarm Underfloor Heating Technical Installation Guide and have been calculated in line with BS EN1264 1-4.
  • 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 stated in this estimate is based on the room size and connection length detail as entered in the original design tool. Any substantial deviation away from the original design criteria 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).
  • This quotation does not include any tools which may be required e.g. staple guns. If these are required please refer to our trade price list.
