The Heatline Warranty Offer
One of the most important things you need to check before buying a new boiler is whether the unit is covered with a warranty or not. Most boiler companies offer a warranty from 1 – 10 years and those that don’t should be avoided.
The Heatline Capriz2 24 kW comes with a 2 year warranty that covers both parts and labour. There’s no denying that it is nearer the lower end of warranty time spans but this can be rectified by taking out a service plan that will keep your unit covered as long as you continue to pay for it.
Registering Your New Boiler for the Heatline Warranty
After you have had your boiler installed, the first job you will need to do is register your warranty. If your engineer is Heatline approved then they will register it for you, but if not you will need to do this yourself.
The boiler will come with clear instructions for registration and you will need to provide some simple details including your name and address and the name of the engineer that fitted the boiler for you. Once you have supplied this information you boiler will be covered and you can start to enjoy using it.
Remember that a boiler will only be given a warranty by Heatline if it has been sat in stock for less than six months, so check with your boiler supplier before you spend your money!
How Much Does the Heatline Capriz2 24 kW Cost?
The Heatline Capriz2 24kW has become popular with consumers as it is a budget-friendly model and will cost you between £390 – £500 to buy brand new. This price range puts some consumers off as they worry it will not be good quality, but the reviews that are available clearly state that the boiler works really well and is reliable all year round.
Despite the low price point for the boiler unit, you will need also need to factor in the cost of installation, delivery and any other associated costs to get your unit up and running.
Can I Fit the Heatline Capriz2 24kW Myself?
If you are on a tight budget then you may be tempted to try installing your new boiler yourself, but this is not a recommended course of action. Boilers should only ever be fitted by Gas Safe Registered engineers, who will have completed additional qualifications to be able to offer an installation and repair service.
If you are worried that the installer you’ve found doesn’t have Gas Safe registration then you can check the register online. It is vital that you ensure that they are properly qualified for your health and safety but also because your boiler warranty will be invalidated and could cost you a lot of money should you ever need a repair.
What Consumers Think About the Heatline Capriz2 24kW

However, the general consensus is that this boiler is good value, lightweight, simple to install and reliable – making it a great choice for any consumer in a small to medium sized property.
