Our products carry a one year limited product guarantee to the original purchaser beginning upon the date of installation or ninety (90) days after shipment from our factory, whichever comes first against defects in parts or workmanship unless otherwise specified. The guarantee covers replacement of faulty parts.
Some of our products may ( subject to contract ) be guaranteed for a longer period on a product by product basis and will be usually subject to a valid maintenance contract with Futurenergy Ltd or our nominated supplier.
In the event of a part failure due to faulty parts or workmanship, the part will be replaced free of charge during the guarantee period only. Once we have established the reason for failure, Futurenergy may refund the shipping costs assuming that the items has failed due to faulty workmanship or materials. If the item has failed due to wear and tear, misuse or damage, no refund will be issued. Alternatively, the customer may visit our premises by arrangement to exchange the faulty unit. No exchange will be given without the return of the original part, although obviously this does not affect your statutory rights. This guarantee has specific exclusions:
Wear and tear
Accidental damage or damage due to Abuse, misuse or vandalism
Damage caused to wind turbines and electronics by exposure to high winds, or gusts exceeding the maximum design speed of the turbine. The turbines we supply are designed for high output at low wind speed, and are therefore less suitable for high wind areas. Use of these wind turbines in coastal areas or use in other high-wind areas is at the customer's risk only.
Damage caused to electrical components by disconnecting any component during operation. Disconnection of the inverter, batteries, charge controller or turbine whilst any component is powered/delivering power can cause irreversible damage.
The guarantee is automatically invalidated if any part of a system is modified (even if the modified part is not the component that has failed), unless prior agreement is obtained in writing from Futurenergy Ltd
Damage caused to the wind turbine or blades caused by over-spinning due to running without suitable load or battery connected
Damage caused to wind turbine by out-of-balance hub/blades. The responsibility of balancing the blades lies with the installer, who must do so AFTER assembly
Failure to periodically service and maintain system in accordance with maintenance schedule.
The blade system having paint or other coatings applied to the surface of them.
Damage caused to wind turbine blades due to abrasion by particles carried by the wind.
No liability is accepted for any damage caused to persons or property as a result of failure to follow product safety instructions, misuse, or as a result of alternative installation methods, fixings or applications outside of those set out by Futurenergy. All machinery and equipment supplied by Futurenergy, and wind turbines in particular should be operated a safe distance from individuals and property. If you are unsure of the acceptable safe distance, please consult before setting up the equipment. The turbine should not be erected where tower failure or turbine failure can cause the machinery to fall onto individuals or propety. When the wind turbine is operational, no personnel should come within a distance equivalent to twice the tower height for safety reasons. Any injury caused by failing to heed these warnings will not be the liability of Futurenergy.
FuturEnergy denies any liability for damage to any other equipment that may be used in conjunction with our products unless it can be demonstrated that our equipment is at fault. This is because we have no control over what equipment is used or how it may be used, and therefore we are not in a position to guarantee its safeguard. Sometimes incompatibility can occur between different types of equipment, or some equipment may be designed for light duty use only - although this may not be immediately apparent... If in doubt please consult us beforehand.
Damage to batteries due to excessive deep discharge, short-circuiting, excessively high load, excessive charging, loss of electrolyte, failure to maintain electrolyte level, topping up using fluid other than distilled or deionised water or any weather condition outside of the manufacturer's specification for battery use.
