How to choose the right boiler cover for you

11/06/2022

It’s really important to make sure your boiler, central heating, plumbing and drains remain in top working order all year round.

It’s really important to make sure your boiler, central heating, plumbing and drains remain in top working order all year round. We’ve made it our mission to help you do just that by offering a range of home maintenance cover plans to suit your needs, including a boiler cover.

If you’d like to know how to choose the right plan for you, then read on…

A boiler cover is a great way to guarantee you avoid unexpected repair costs and the discomfort created by a broken boiler. To support that, our boiler covers provide maintenance services delivered by Gas Safe™ engineers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (yes, even on Christmas Day!).

Generally, an emergency boiler cover is perfect for landlords and property owners who are responsible for dealing with boiler-related issues.

If you’d like to choose the right cover for you, first think about your boiler’s current performance and your property’s needs; as a starting point, do you need cover for any of the following areas:

  • Boiler and controls
  • Gas central heating
  • Plumbing
  • Electrics
  • Drainage

  • If you only want to protect your boiler, choose a boiler cover. If you need help with any of the other areas, choose a home maintenance cover.

    To round up your plan, you can select a few add-ons so you can be sure you’ve got the right cover for your home:

  • Gas-fire
  • White goods
  • Cooker

  • You can also consider a few other factors to help you choose a suitable cover.

    Boiler Age


    For any electrical or electronic appliance, aging is an essential factor to consider. The device functionality depends on the period of operation. If your boiler is seven years old or newer, go for a standard plan.

    If your boiler is older, it’s much safer to go with a more premium cover which includes a boiler replacement if needed and offers complete peace of mind when it comes to protecting your home in an emergency.

    Call-out or Service Requests Limit


    Most covers have a limit on the maximum number of call-out requests you can place in a specific time duration. Always opt for a service provider with the highest number of call-out requests. The good news is that here at PlusHeat, you’ve got unlimited callouts included in all of the plans!

    Additional Charges


    Apart from cover expenses, some providers might charge you an additional fee. Consider any additional charges before choosing your plan. Make sure to read and agree with the terms and conditions and the inclusions in your plan before making your choice.

    Boiler Type


    Boiler cover providers extend coverage for all categories of boilers. The typical boiler categories are conventional gas boilers, biomass boilers, wood pellet boilers, and condensing boilers. Combi boiler is another boiler variant that is quite sophisticated in operation and functionality. If you’re interested in knowing more about us, we cover both gas and electric boilers.

    We understand there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to boiler cover; that’s why we offer fully customisable plans to suit the needs of your boiler and home.

    Everything we do is based around the five core elements of our Promise.

    Whether you are a homeowner, landlord or even an estate agent, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will experience the very best service around – no exception. We let our reviews do the talking…
