Boiler and Heating Breakdown Cover Insurance

A boiler is central to the smooth running of any household. When it breaks down and you are without heating, hot water or both, that is when you’ll be wishing you had taken out boiler breakdown cover.  

Prominence Support provides the level of boiler breakdown cover that you need. It ensures that you have some protection against the costs of your boiler suddenly packing in. We’ll try to get your boiler up and running as quickly as possible, to ensure that the time you are without heat and hot water is kept to a minimum. 


What is boiler breakdown cover?

Boiler breakdown cover is effectively an insurance for your boiler that comes to your aid when your boiler ceases working properly. It provides you with access to practical assistance so that your boiler can be repaired without cost to you, or provides a financial contribution should your boiler not be repairable.

Many boilers, if you bought it from new, would have had an initial manufacturer’s warranty but these have usually expired by the time that you need any assistance. The cost of repair or replacement can be extensive so it makes sense to protect you in the event of a boiler breakdown.

Boiler breakdown cover gives you financial certainty as you’ll know you are not going to have to pick up the bill in the event of a breakdown. It also ensures that you won’t be stuck without heating or hot water for any length of time. 

We handle the whole process for you once you notify us of a problem. In the event of your central heating no longer working we take over all aspects of dealing with this for you, including the cost of engineer call outs and appointments, labour charges, repairs, parts. 

Some of the features of our Boiler Breakdown Cover:

  • Low excess
  • Boiler
  • Hot water unit
  • Boiler Controls
  • Central heating system
  • Warm air unit
  • Up to £500 per claim

Is boiler breakdown cover worth it?

Your boiler is likely the most vital piece of equipment in the home. Consider how much disruption would result should your boiler suddenly break down. Suddenly everyday things you take for granted like taking a shower or being able to put the heating on at the flick of a switch become impossible, and things are even worse if it happens in the depth of winter!

Boiler breakdown cover from Prominence Support ensures that you avoid this situation. In the event of a breakdown, you just get in touch with us and we’ll handle it for you, arranging for an engineer to come out to you at the earliest opportunity.

When it comes to considering whether boiler cover is worth it, you have to ask yourself what you would do in the event of your boiler breaking down. Would you be able to afford the costs of unexpected repairs, or even worse, the full cost of a replacement boiler should your boiler completely break? Boilers are expensive items to replace and costs well in excess of £1,000 are not uncommon depending on the type of boiler you need.

For the peace of mind alone, boiler breakdown cover is worth it for many people. Knowing you are not going to face a large repair bill.
