What is an annual boiler service plan?

An annual boiler service plan is a great option for spreading the cost of your boiler’s service throughout the year rather than having to pay for it all at once, whilst also giving you peace of mind that your boiler’s service is covered without you needing to do anything.

It’s particularly important to get your boiler serviced regularly to meet the terms of any manufacturer’s warranty you may have, which in some cases can be 10 years or more, so it’s worth ensuring that it stays valid to cover the cost of any parts or repairs. Regular servicing also keeps your boiler running as efficiently as possible, keeping the cost of your energy bill down, as well as highlighting any potential issues before they escalate into a more expensive problem.

Why you should consider an annual boiler service plan 

There are a number of reasons an annual boiler service plan could be the best option for you, including:

✅ It allows you to spread the cost throughout the year rather than a one-off payment

✅ The plan provider will arrange the service for you meaning you don’t need to spend time calling around trying to find an engineer to come out for you, so it’s one less thing for you to worry about sorting to keep your home running smoothly

✅ Having your boiler service organised by the plan provider means you can be confident you’re getting a Gas Safe registered engineer with all the relevant qualifications to conduct your service

✅ By having your service covered by your annual plan, it means you can have peace of mind throughout the year that your boiler is covered and warranty, if you have one, will remain valid

How to get an annual boiler service plan

Simply answer a few questions about your home and heating system and we'll display the cover options that we can offer you. It's as simple as that!

It could also be worth checking whether you have boiler cover as part of your home insurance plan and if this includes servicing – but this will vary by provider so you will need to check the details of your specific contract. If not, find out how much a boiler service costs, as well as how often you should service a boiler in our additional guides.
