The cost of boiler installation for a new or replacement boiler can be costly and you may need to evaluate all your options before settling on a boiler installation deal. You will need to contact a qualified plumbing engineer to know what to expect as this isn’t a job that you can do yourself to cut the costs.
The boiler installation is only the beginning. You will need to put a plan in place so you know who to contact in case of a breakdown.
What Boiler Cover Involves
If you have boiler cover and your boiler system breaks down or needs a repair, your contract provider will send a trusted engineer to assess and fix the problem within 24 hours of your call. And if you have a boiler servicing contract, your boiler will be serviced regularly for a monthly fee. This can put your mind at rest so any defects in your boiler can be identified before it makes more damage.
This is ideal for those who want to manage their boiler repair costs while having a safety net to fall back on.
What Does Cover for Boiler Service Cost?
The cost of boiler service cover varied and each contract is different. It will also depend on the following factors:
Boiler age – if you have an older boiler you may find not all providers will accept you as a new customer
Boiler life – existing customers should also be wary. Some providers won’t renew the cover if your boiler reaches a certain age. While you might be able to switch to another provider, the older your boiler the more likely you’ll need cover
Call-outs – if your boiler breaks down twice in a year, some policies won’t cover you more than this. Choose a policy that has unlimited call-outs and preferably doesn’t limit the amount the provider will cover
