What is boiler insurance?

Boiler insurance is a protection for your boiler and central heating system, covering you against the costs of repair or some of the costs of replacement should your central heating system stop working. While your boiler, if you bought it from new, may have an initial manufacturer’s warranty, these are time limited, and it is just so typical that your boiler breaks down just after your warranty has expired. 

Boiler cover provides you with financial certainty as you know you are going to have protection in the event of a breakdown. Consider how inconvenient it would be if your boiler were to suddenly pack in. This could mean no hot water, and if it happens in winter, a very cold house!

We aim to respond quickly and get your boiler up and running in as quick a time as possible, and if that isn’t possible, we’ll arrange up to a £500 contribution towards a new boiler.
