Boiler insurance vs Boiler cover

Most of us don’t think about our central heating and hot water very often, we just take it for granted that it will carry on doing its job day in, day out. However, like anything, boilers can and do go wrong or break down from time to time so you need to have boiler cover in place for peace of mind that if this happens in your home then a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer will be round to fix it quickly and with no hassle or additional charges.

Boiler warranty up to 10 years on all boilers

No need for boiler insurance - we include warranty as standard

At Boiler Plan we believe in keeping things simple for our customers. That’s why when we install a brand new boiler, all our boilers are covered by a manufacturers guarantee of up to 10 years, for no extra cost. This means you don’t need to worry about paying an ongoing monthly fee for boiler insurance to cover repairs, labour and parts.

What’s covered with our new boilers:

  • No charge for parts
  • No charge for a callout
  • No charge if a new boiler is put in
  • No monthly charge for boiler warranty

Compare boiler cover

At Boiler Plan we like to do things differently from the rest. With us, you won’t need to pay any extra boiler insurance charges to cover your boiler against breakdown, new parts, labour, or even replacement after you purchase one of our boilers. However, not all companies are the same as us. Here are a few examples of their charges and what that covers (and also what it doesn’t cover).
