Boiler cover - why is it important?

What is boiler cover?

During the cold winter months, all sorts of problems with your boiler can arise - such as the dreaded frozen condensate pipe. This can cause leaks, blockages, and all sorts of headaches that can lead to callout and repair costs adding up. 

If your boiler or heating system breaks down, boiler cover or central heating insurance will cover the expense of calling an engineer to repair it. Some insurance companies will make you pay for the callout fee, as well as parts and labour - if your boiler then needs further work. 

BOXT Home Cover Service plan

Our busy lives can make remembering to book an annual service easy to forget. When you get your boiler serviced, it keeps your warranty valid and up to date. If you don’t and your boiler does break down, repairing it may cost you a fair bit as you won’t be able to have the manufacturer come out and repair it for free.

This is one of the many advantages of choosing BOXT boiler cover. Once you sign up, you don’t need to worry about remembering a thing. When the time comes for your annual service, we contact you, offer dates that fit around your busy life and book you in.

Who needs boiler cover? 

If you’re a homeowner or a landlord then you’ll definitely need to consider getting boiler cover if you don’t already. Not only does it provide you with peace of mind in the colder months, but boiler cover gives your property the ultimate protection. For any boiler nuisances, staying protected gives you the support you need during these stressful moments. 

Boiler cover for homeowners

Whilst it’s not a requirement by law, making sure your boiler is covered as a homeowner is a wise investment. If something was to go wrong with your boiler or central heating system, you’ll be paying a lot less in call-out charges, on top of labour, parts and repairs if you have suitable cover in place. 

Boiler cover for landlords

As a landlord, it is important not only to keep on top of all the appliances in your rented accommodation but to also make sure they are protected should something go wrong. Not only for your peace of mind but for the tenants too. By ensuring the home is habitable and problems are dealt with efficiently - ensures happy tenants.
