Why Boiler Insurance is Essential

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 12, 2012) - Even in tough financial times, taking out boiler insurance is a cheaper and smarter option than paying for costly repairs or even a new boiler if your current one fails.

While the warmer months may seem an odd time to think about boiler insurance, the fact is that we use our boilers all year round. While the effects of a boiler giving out in summer are potentially not as catastrophic as in winter, it will still cause considerable disruption and mean you face the possibility of ice-cold showers until you get it repaired.

By the time you do get around to having it repaired, you'll realise how expensive calling out an engineer can be. Even when your boiler is fairly new, repairs can run into hundreds of pounds. When presented with your bill, not taking out cheap boiler cover will look like an opportunity missed.

The same can be said for older boilers. They need to be serviced regularly to keep them in working order, else they could fail and you could face a substantial bill for a new boiler.

Boiler insurance is essential for new boilers as well as older ones. If you have just invested in a new combination or condensing boiler, then you'll want to make sure you are covered. These are advanced pieces of technology that require expert care if they go wrong. Repairs could be expensive if you do not have adequate cover, which could undo the benefits of having one, such as cheaper bills.

By taking out boiler insurance from British Gas you can rest secure in the knowledge that you'll get professional expert help from fully trained and skilled engineers when something does go wrong - and some types of cover also include an annual boiler service - meaning that you can get on with your life with the least disruption possible.
