    (i) the condition and soundness of your Central Heating System;

    (ii) the condition and soundness of accessible gas pipe work and all flexible connections;

    (iii) the adequacy of the fixed air supply;

We shall not be required to continue with any Work unless and until any increase in the Price has been agreed by you. We will issue you with a new Sales Quotation and you must sign this new Sales Quotation before we carry out the Work (which shall include the Additional Work). Please note that where the Installation Engineer issues a Notification of Hazard, we will not continue with any Work unless and until we have been provided with a Declaration of Conformance Certificate.
