Boiler Cover Vs New Boiler

By Rhys Gale 7 years ago

Winter is over and you have managed to make it through without any major problems. However, those little faults that have started to appear are only going to get worse. So what do you do?

Is it worth buying boiler cover to ensure you stay warm whatever the weather?

Boiler cover will give you access to engineers who can repair your heating in an emergency. This usually includes an annual service too, but how do you know the problem isn’t going to come back.

Or on the flip side, do you consider investing in a new boiler?

The first thing to ask yourself is how old is your boiler? If your boiler is old, getting insurance doesn’t really make sense, you will probably struggle to get a policy that is cost-effective and may not even get cover at all. Providers tend to cap the age of boilers they will insure at 15 years, sometimes even lower.

In most instances the average cover would cost around £20 a month which will give you peace of mind, but is this cover worth it?

The answer is No. Most of those who opt for cover will never have to claim, they end up spending more on the cover than getting a brand NEW boiler fitted would cost and a new one means you’re automatically covered by the new warranty or guarantee. Not only will you save on the cost of repairs and insurance with a warranty but modern boilers are far more energy-efficient. Upgrading from a G-rated to an A-rated boiler will save around £340 a year!

What’s more, Limegreen are a Worcester Bosch Accredited installer which means we can offer the full 10 years guarantee on all parts and labour should anything go wrong with your boiler. This is effectively what you get with your boiler insurance, but with the added bonus of having an A-rated energy efficient new boiler, giving you even more savings a year.
