What is central heating insurance?

Central heating insurance is a protection for your boiler and other aspects of your central heating system, protecting you against breakdown, so that the costs of repair (or a contribution towards replacement) will be covered for you should your central heating system suddenly pack in. While your central heating may have had a warranty when it was first purchased, these are limited, and very often run out just at the point where you need it most!

Central heating insurance gives you financial certainty, protecting you from costs in the event of a sudden breakdown. If your boiler were to cease functioning, this could affect your heating and mean a lack of hot water in the home. Not a very pleasant prospect, especially if it occurs during winter.

Central heating insurance will mean that you will receive swift assistance in the event of a breakdown. With assistance from one of our engineers, we’ll get your central heating up and running, and if it cannot be repaired, we’ll arrange a contribution of up to £500 towards the costs of a new central heating boiler.

Why buy central heating insurance cover?

Central heating systems are costly and if something should go wrong with yours, that can often end up costing you significant amounts of money. It is likely that your central heating provides both heat and hot water in your home, so to suddenly not have this is likely to cause major disruption in your home.

Consider how integral your central heating is to your household, and if you should be without it for a period of time how much inconvenience would it cause? In many cases the option of taking a shower can suddenly be taken away (unless you can handle a freezing cold shower) and you could end up having to resort to those back-up expensive to run electrical heaters just to keep everyone warm. Avoid these cold prospects by ensuring you have protection in the form of central heating insurance.

Prominence Support are there to help you when things go wrong. Steer clear of the chaos that usually results when things like this go wrong by having central heating insurance, or extend the security to other elements by taking up a Complete Home Cover policy.

 

Is central heating insurance good value?

If you still need convincing about the merits of central heating insurance, then it is worth considering how likely you would be able to replace your boiler or central heating system should it suddenly have a problem and not be repairable. Central heating systems do not come cheap – that is a fact.

The cost alone should be reason enough for you to want to protect yourself against a big repair bill, or even worse, have to stump up the cash for a replacement should your central heating not be repairable. Usually a boiler would be expected to last around 10 years, but things can still go wrong, so you want to ensure that your central heating remains functional during its lifetime.

Prominence Support insurance protects you against having to find the funds for costly repairs or replacement, and the great news is there is NO EXCESS to pay. If you are someone who has failed to have central heating insurance in the past and that decision has come to bite, you know it makes sense to insure yours now.

Central heating insurance will protect your central heating system, but if you are considering insuring other aspects of your home, we can help you. Prominence Support can help you with a full comprehensive package.

This comprehensive policy is the best way of ensuring you have full protection for your home and helps you make the most of the discounts available. Additionally, with no excess to pay across our policies, you’ll not have to find a single contribution towards any work we carry out on your behalf.
