Doesn’t house insurance cover my boiler and pipes?

In some situations, it will. But in many others, it will not. Your house insurance will provide cover for emergency situations arising from fires, floods, or if you are a victim of theft. Any issues beyond this, like a leaky pipe or a broken boiler due to mechanical breakdown, are generally not covered.

Our boiler and plumbing cover is aimed at filling the gaps your home insurance leaves behind.
