Our team of expert customer service representatives are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, to make sure you are not left out in the cold when it comes to boiler issues.

Do I need gas boiler insurance?

Research shows that around half of all households will have to have their boiler repaired or replaced at some point in time. With costs for a new boiler running into the thousands, having good quality insurance could save you a fortune in the long run.

But it’s not always about cost. Maybe you value the peace of mind knowing that you won’t be left without hot water or central heating for days on end. Having a Prominence Gas Boiler policy will help protect your home from the inconvenience of boiler problems.

Why do gas boilers break down?

There are many different faults that can occur with a gas boiler that may require an engineer. Here are just a few:

  • Frozen external pipes. In cold weather, the plastic condensate pipe that transports water away from the boiler can freeze. This can, in turn, stop the boiler from working. This may be compounded by inactivity during the warmer months, or the boiler straining as it moves between temperature extremes if it is switched on and off at colder times of the year.
  • Faulty diverter valve. Combi boilers have a diverter valve that opens and closes depending on whether you want hot water or central heating. This can become clogged with a sludge-like mixture leading to either hot water and no central heating, or central heating and no hot water.
  • Damage to the pump or pump seal. Many boiler problems can occur in the boiler pump, which can become blocked, begin to leak, or just plain fail to work. Pumps last about 15 years but can wear faster if over-used and may need to be replaced.
  • Low water pressure. Low water pressure can be a sign that there is a leak somewhere in the system and may require a full system check-up by a qualified engineer.
  • Thermocouple malfunction. If the pilot light on your older gas boiler keeps going out, this could be a sign that the thermocouple (gas valve safety device) has developed a fault. The thermocouple purpose is to turn the gas supply off when it doesn’t detect a flame in the pilot light to prevent safety issues. If this becomes faulty, your boiler may turn the pilot light off unnecessarily.
