During the winter, the possibility of having problems with your boiler increases due to more usage of the boiler. If you do not have a boiler cover, it is worth investigating insurance policies designed for happy customers that are available.
If you live in rented accommodation, you do not need to take out boiler insurance. It is the responsibility of the owner or letting agent ensure the boiler and heating system if you have a home, work, and regularly maintained. If you are a homeowner, however, then it is your responsibility to take out adequate insurance.
There are some provisions to take out boiler insurance. If you are over the age of fifteen years, you may have trouble getting close. Most policies exclude boilers that have been used for fifteen years or more and a model aged seven years or more may need to be inspected by a qualified engineer before you will be able to take out a policy.
Check the make and model of your boiler before seeking coverage, too. If it is, out-of-date old model or if the manufacturer is a clear brand, you may not be able to take out boiler insurance.
If this is the case, you may want to investigate how much it would cost to upgrade the boiler and heating system. a new boiler is significantly more economical and energy-efficient, the cost of installation can be balanced with the amount you stand to save on your gas and electricity bills.
