Which boiler service plan should you choose to give the security of having a boiler fired central heating system covered by a service contract? Does the boiler service plan include an annual boiler service to maintain the boiler in good health? If your boiler has a problem, will a gas safe engineer quickly come out to your property? What do other customers say about how engineers identify problems and fix them?
Paying for a boiler service plan reduces the risk of expensive boiler repairs. For example, if repaired every three years – at the cost of £200 each time – an annual boiler service plan could save you hundreds of pounds.
Add peace of mind to the cost savings and budgeting. You can’t always put a price on peace of mind, but knowing who to call is always reassuring. You don’t want to wait for ages while asking friends, neighbours and family for their recommendations. Look at customer reviews in advance of taking out your service plan policy to avoid the possibility of cold showers and no heating. Boiler breakdowns are statistically more likely in winter.
Offering boiler service and maintenance plans are numerous different companies with a wide range of prices. Choosing the right boiler service plan for you starts with knowing that you’ll get a gas safe registered engineer. With the big nationals, it is guaranteed; however, they tend to be expensive. To save money on boiler cover, choose the best boiler service plan for you without the unnecessary extras. If you have a local gas safe plumber who understands your boiler, perhaps ask about the service they offer. A boiler service plan with the added benefit of existing boiler system knowledge before you even begin your contract provides even greater peace of mind.
If you have a new boiler, the most basic boiler service plan on offer might be adequate. Make sure that the list includes an annual boiler service and maintenance inspection. Paying separately for the yearly service might be an expensive surprise. Also, consider choosing a boiler plan that offers replacement should your boiler be beyond economic repair.]
Also significant are the views of other customers. The number of good reviews matters. Don’t just read the best reviews, but take a look at the details. The best value boiler services plans are only useful if you get the repairs and replacement boiler you expect if and when you might see a problem. Although your boiler supplier will do their utmost to provide you with a quality product at installation, you never know whether your boiler might be faulty and require a call out.
