When your boiler develops problems, it can be both costly and disruptive. With Boiler cover, you can rest assured that you will never run out of hot water
Has your boiler reached its boiling point? Exploring The Benefits of Boiler Cover
Boiler cover is a form of insurance that can cover the costs of repairing or replacing your boiler if something should go awry. But at a time when we’re all trying to keep our monthly costs to a minimum, homeowners may question the benefits of boiler cover. At Papernest, we understand that not all boiler cover policies are created equal. And we are happy to advise our users to help them get the right cover to suit their needs and their budget.
Here, we’ll attempt to answer some of your burning questions about boiler cover, and hopefully prevent your household from losing (or getting into) hot water.
Is boiler cover worth it?
Your boiler is the heart of your home’s entire central heating infrastructure. It works hard all day every day to bring you hot water when and where you need it. But after around 15 years, your boiler can start to show its age. It can grow less efficient, causing your energy bills to rise. What’s more, it can become more prone to faults and failure.
For a fairly manageable monthly cost, you can prevent messy and potentially dangerous boiler problems, and expensive repairs if your boiler stops working. And because many boiler cover plans also include servicing, you can be assured that you’re getting the most out of your boiler.
What are the benefits of boiler cover?
There are many different levels of boiler cover. Some protect only the boiler unit itself, others protect your boiler, radiators and flue. Cover can also be upgraded to extend to your plumbing and even your electrics.
While all policies are different, you can usually benefit from the following:
- Annual boiler servicing included in the cost
- Emergency callout when something goes wrong
- Contribution to the cost of repairs (subject to an excess)
- Contribution to the cost of replacement if your boiler is deemed beyond economical repair.
How much does boiler cover cost?
The cost of boiler cover depends on your supplier and the level of cover you need. It may also depend on the age of your boiler, as older units are higher risk. However, most basic boiler cover policies cost between £80 and £170 per year. Keep in mind that as with any insurance policy, the lower your premium the higher your excess is likely to be.
