CLAIMS EXAMPLES

HVAC claims could arise form poor workmanship, giving rise to system faults or fire, employee getting an injury during work, a power surge giving rise to damage to client Machines or computers, Third Party accident on a client site due to your negligence etc.

The following scenario demonstrates how a faulty work claim may occur.

D-Heating Contractors has been hired by a business owner to install new Air Conditioning units in an office building they cover. D-Heating Contractors employees completed the installation work and after several months of the work being completed, the owner of the property complains to D-Heating Contractors that the Air conditioning units aren’t working properly, causing refrigerated stock to be spoiled.

After a number of attempts to fix the issue the owner of the property isn’t satisfied with the outcome and claims that D-Heating Contractors employees failed to install the units correctly and that they used substandard materials.

The property owner hires another contractor to correct the mistake and then sues D-Heating Electrical Contractors for breach of contract and the financial losses they have suffered as a result the alleged negligence. The suit alleges that they used inferior materials and poor installation methods resulted in poor workmanship.

Our policies would look to respond in this instance under the defective workmanship cover. Standard Tradesman policies would exclude this element of cover.
