Is Boiler Cover Worth It?
Up until now boiler cover has not been a service we have offered to our customers. We have had a lot of requests for us to provide the cover to our customers. So we have been looking in to boiler care plans and working out a way of providing care plans while delivering value for money and maintaining a sustainable business. An important question we had to answer was ‘Is boiler cover worth it” and that is question that applies to both our customers and us as a business.
I know that we are currently in the middle of summer and the weather is superb at the moment so the last thing on everyone’s mind is a boiler breakdown. Unfortunately all makes and models of boilers breakdown and it could be on a nice warm sunny day or in the middle of winter leaving your home with no heating. Boiler repairs are expensive and with the average cost of a boiler repair estimated to be in excess of £300 the thought of a boiler repair can be daunting. This is why many homeowners choose to cover their boiler and spread the cost of any maintenance and remove the chance of any expensive boiler repair bills.
What is boiler cover?
Boiler cover is where you pay a small recurring monthly fee or an annual fee to a boiler maintenance company who will then cover the boiler should it need repairing. A good boiler service plan should also include the annual boiler service, unlimited callouts and all parts and labour.
So is it worth it?
Some gas boilers are better than others, some are better installed than others, some are better maintained then others and some people are lucky with their boilers and they never breakdown down. It all depends on the level of cover you have, the number of times your boiler requires a repair and the cost to you monthly. Really with a good boiler service plan you are paying for peace of mind. You know in advance what you’re paying and the level of service you’re getting. If you’re happy with your monthly payments and the level of cover you have then in my opinion they are 100% worth it. Remember the cheapest cover isn’t the best. It is always a good idea to check what is and isn’t covered before committing to a plan.
We will be introducing our new boiler service plans very shortly. If this is something that interests you please get in touch and we can make sure you’re the first to know when they are available.
