Central heating cover
Even with the correct cleaning and ongoing maintenance, all central heating systems will need to be serviced on a regular basis. Servicing can help to ensure that a boiler is working at optimal levels and that it adheres to any safety standards. To this end, you will need to employ the services of a central heating servicing company at least once a year.
Many companies offer a range of central heating cover plans. These plans allow you to pay a set amount of money each month to cover your central heating system for future servicing and repairs. The amount that you can expect to pay for central heating cover will differ a lot - depending on the company that you use, and other aspects, such as the age and condition of your central heating system.
When you are looking for companies who supply central heating cover plans - it's important to check the terms and conditions of their plan(s) carefully, including any small print. Many people take out a plan, only to discover that certain parts or repairs are not covered in it - this can be a very costly mistake. This is especially important if you have a slightly older boiler, as parts may be more difficult to obtain or may even be unavailable to purchase.
You can buy a wide range of central heating cover plans - from basic plans that cover boiler repairs only, to extensive plans that cover boiler repairs, servicing, electrical faults, hot water supply repairs, radiator, pipe and boiler leaks, thermostat and timer repairs and a range of other scenarios. Generally speaking, the more expensive the central heating cover plan - the more you will be covered for.
Top-tier cover plans also tend to provide the customer with the option of making unlimited claims - meaning that you can use the services of the company for repairs, servicing etc. as often as you need to, and it will all be covered in one fee. This can be a very important aspect, as basic plans tend to have limitations on the number of times a service can be used.
Take the time to look at a number of central heating cover plans before you make your final decision. The terms and conditions will vary somewhat - and with some companies you may be tied into paying into a plan over a set period of time. With a little research, you will find the best central heating cover plan to suit your exact needs and requirements.
