Boiler CoverLeaking or defunct boiler is the worst that could happen to you and your family on a frosty winter day. Yet if you are a person exercising foresight, you can either prevent this from happening (with routine maintenance, for example) or can at least minimise the time to repair and related costs. You can make the latter possible with boiler cover. Buying a boiler cover will ensure that you have your boiler examined, refurbished and/or replaced within due time. What do you have to mind in a boiler cover?
Insurer or provider
Unlike most insurances, this type of cover can be purchased from an insurer and gas provider alike. If your gas provider offers a cover, then its solution might be the perfect one for you. With a single call, you will bring a team of technicians around and will settle your claim. There is an option, however, that an insurer offer better conditions, i.e. to offer a larger cover for the same amount of money.
Bundle or not
Combining your boiler cover with an insurance for the rest of your utilities (central heating, plumbing, home electrics) might offer you hefty discounts. Make sure, when tailoring your package, that you have included all your essentials. You can easiely get several quotes after entering few details online. Only once you have preset your utility entries can you make a realistic across-the-board comparison of prices.
Monthly or annually
Insurers have tapped onto the fact that boilers are a largely seasonal concern and have prompted them to offer flexible cover schemes. Along with the annuity alternative, a home owner can now buy a monthly cover with the option of renewing it automatically or upon deliberate prompting at the end of each month. Main providers offer free annual boiler service and controls check with unlimited call-outs and claims when buying boiler insurance.
