If your boiler or central heating system happens to break down it can be frustrating and inconvenient. As well as being left with a cold home it can be difficult to find a plumber or engineer at short notice.
However, taking out boiler insurance (Extra Cover) will give you security and peace of mind, in that if a breakdown should occur, it can be dealt with and any problems rectified quickly and efficiently by a qualified Gas Safe engineer.
USwitch.com released a report in October which stated that in 2012 a fifth of UK households had a boiler breakdown during the winter months. The cost of repairing or possibly having to replace a boiler or heating system can be expensive, with a breakdown alone costing on average £314.
However, with the various cover packages available, starting from under £13 per month you can take away the worry of potentially facing a large repair bill.
Peace of mind
Energy expert from uSwitch, Tom Lyon stated “In these cash-strapped times, going without boiler cover can seem like an easy saving to make. However, it is a gamble which can leave you out of pocket if your boiler packs up and you don’t have money spare to pay for repairs. The average repair bill last year was £314 – if this would be difficult for you to find then boiler cover could give you peace of mind”.
The right cover for you
What is included in boiler cover varies depending on which policy you opt for. However, basic boiler cover with Custom Heat Ltd includes an annual service to ensure your boiler is working properly (not just a safety check), parts, labour and unlimited call outs throughout the year.
It is also possible to take out insurance that will cover your entire central heating system, which includes all radiators, pipes and heating controls (programmer and thermostat).
Custom Heat, custom service
As part of the Extra Cover service, Custom Heat will keep a service history on the computer system. The system records any reported faults, enabling engineers to provide an efficient and speedy response in the event of boiler failure.
Custom Heat Ltd use only their own Engineers, all of which are registered and fully approved, ensuring the work will be carried out professionally, with help available to you as and when you need it.
