Complaints Policy and Procedure

Our aim:
Smartfoam ltd is committed to providing a quality service for its customers and partners working in an open and accountable way that builds the trust and respect of all our stakeholders. One of the ways in which we can continue to improve our service is by listening and responding to the views of our customers and partners, and in particular by responding positively to complaints, and do our best to respond as quickly as possible and put matters right if we can.

At Smartfoam ltd we recognise that a customer will be expressing their dissatisfaction and we define this in this way: Complaint – This is where the customer is dissatisfied with the way in which their product was sold or described to them. Claim – This is dissatisfaction with the product or fitting of that product.

Therefore, we aim to ensure that:

-Making a complaint or claim is as easy as possible.

-We treat a complaint or claim as a clear expression of dissatisfaction with our service which calls for an immediate response.

-We deal with it promptly, politely and, when appropriate, confidentially.

-We respond in the right way – for example, with an explanation, or an apology where we have got things wrong, or information on any action taken etc.

-We learn from complaints and claims, use them to improve our service, and review annually our complaints policy and procedures.

We recognise that many concerns will be raised informally, and dealt with quickly. Our aims are to:

Resolve informal concerns quickly, and if required, keep matters low-key. Enable mediation between the complainant and the individual to whom the complaint or claim has been referred. An informal approach is appropriate when it can be achieved. But if concerns cannot be satisfactorily resolved informally, then the formal complaints procedure should be followed.

Smartfoam ltd defines a complaint or claim as ‘any expression of dissatisfaction (with Smartfoam ltd, with a member of staff, or with a business partner) that relates to Smartfoam ltd and that requires a formal response’.

The formal complaints procedure is intended to ensure that all complaints and claims are handled fairly, consistently and wherever possible resolved to the complainant’s satisfaction.

Smartfoam ltd.’s responsibility will be to:

-Acknowledge the formal complaint in writing.

-Respond within a stated period of time.

-Deal reasonably and sensitively with the complaint.

-Take action where appropriate.

A complainant’s responsibility is to:

-Bring their complaint, in writing, to Smartfoam ltd.’s attention normally within 8 weeks of the issue arising.

-Raise concerns promptly and directly with a member of staff at Smartfoam ltd.

-Explain the problem as clearly and as fully as possible, including any action taken to date.

-Allow Smartfoam ltd a reasonable time to deal with the matter.

-Recognise that some circumstances may be beyond Smartfoam ltd.’s control.

Confidentiality: Except in exceptional circumstances, every attempt will be made to ensure that both the complainant and Retailer maintain confidentiality. However the circumstances giving rise to the complaint may be such that it may not be possible to maintain confidentiality (with each complaint judged on its own merit). Should this be the case, the situation will be explained to the complainant.

Stage 1 – Formal Complaint
In the first instance, if you are unable to resolve the issue informally, you should write or email to the designated complaints address, info@homesmartenergy.co.uk. Or directly to the operator you are in contact with, so your complaint can be passed directly to the assigned complaints handler.

In your letter you should set out the details of your complaint, the consequences for you as a result, and the remedy you are seeking. You can expect your complaint to be acknowledged within 5 working days of receipt. We aim to provide you with a response and an explanation within 28 working days.

You can contact us to complain by calling 01444 708 252 or email info@homesmartenergy.co.uk or in writing to:
Lynnem House, 1 Victoria Way, Burgess Hill, West Sussex RH15 9NF.

Stage 2 – Alternative Dispute Resolution
If you are not satisfied with the response provided in stage 1, or in the event of an unresolvable issue, you can refer your case to the nominated alternative dispute resolution provider. The primary alternative dispute resolution provider is through our registered industry consumer code, HIES. HIES can be contacted at: Centurion House, Leyland Business Park, Centurion Way, Farington, Leyland, PR25 3GR, 0344 324 5242 or info@hiesscheme.org.uk.

The parties agree that, in the event of a dispute, we will exclusively attempt to resolve the dispute through HIES’s alternative dispute resolution services.

Stage – Financial Ombudsman Service
The Financial Ombudsman Service provides a free, independent service for clients to solve disputes with not-for-profit debt advice providers.

The Financial Ombudsman Service will only step in once the bureau has had the opportunity to investigate matters, so please contact the bureau first.

If your complaint is about debt advice or if you were seeking advice about your credit record and you are not satisfied with the bureau’s final response or if eight weeks have passed since you first let the bureau know about your concerns, you can ask the Financial Ombudsman to review your complaint.

Contact the Financial Ombudsman Service:

By post: Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower London E14 9SR
By phone: 0800 0 234 567 / 0300 123 9 123
By email: complaint.info@financial-ombudsman.org.uk

Very impressed and pleased with the efficiency and very pleasant demeanour of all those involved with the installation of solar panels on our roof. The surveyor was very helpful; PRS Scaffolding gave plenty of warning before erecting and and dismantling the scaffolding; the solar panel team and the electrical engineers worked well with the minimum of mess. Special thanks to the very patient engineer who set up the App on my tablet! Just amazed how much electricity is generated on a sunny day. Thanks Home Smart Energy.

Professional, knowledgeable and friendly - perfect combination for an investment as large as solar panels. Happy to answer any questions you may have. Well worth calling them. Never had a bad phone call with them. Exemplary customer service! Never bothered writing reviews before, but I have for this company. Call them - best decision you'll make.

Homesmart Energy Supplied and installed solar panels plus an integrated inverter & battery system for our house under Surrey's "Solar Together" scheme. Very good service, good equipment, and installed in less than a day. Arranged for survey and scaffolding, so it was all well planned and executed. All paperwork done for us to enable ready application for a feed in tarriff, and followed up with full documentation pack + insurance backed warranty scheme. All said, very well done.

All aspects of the installation were well-communicated. Everyone involved (surveyor, scaffolders, panel installers, electricians, office staff) were friendly, helpful and efficient. Where things needed changing, they were quickly resolved. All round, a great service.
