Compare Boiler Cover & Insurance

We here at Prominence Support are an insurance provider. As such, our products are regulated by the FCA and the ombudsmen service. That’s why we only offer boiler full cover insurance. You may be wondering what the difference between boiler insurance and boiler cover is?

While they claim to do the same thing the main difference between boiler cover and boiler insurance is that insurance is regulated whereas cover tends to be unregulated. Like all financial services, boiler insurance is regulated by the FCA and the ombudsmen services. This means customers have the peace of mind that they will be treated fairly and their policy won’t have any nasty hidden terms and conditions. It also means that, if they do find themselves in dispute with their provider, they will have the ability to raise their case to a higher authority.

What are some of the terms and conditions I should be on the lookout for?

Unregulated companies are not governed by the FCA so they can include any stipulations they want in their terms and conditions, including denying claims for no reason. As such they often include clauses that prevent a customer from claiming, even if their issue is legitimate.

Here are some of the terms and conditions to be aware of:

  • Extra costs that can be added for parts and labour.
  • Terms that prevent a claim if the provider thinks you have caused damage to the system. Some providers use this as a catch all clause to get out of paying as they can often claim you damaged the boiler even when you haven’t.
  • Some agreements include a wide range of terms and conditions that prevent claiming.
  • Extra costs for engineer call outs in the event of an emergency, or in out of office hours.
  • Admin fees, especially those payable on reporting a problem.
  • Larger than average excess fees. Some companies have excesses of over £100, meaning you will still be left with a large bill when claiming.
