Living without central heating is something which most households would not relish in today’s modern society. We have become used to warm houses and a constant supply of hot water with which we wash, clean our dishes and wash our clothes with. Going back to the days where you boiled water over an open fire in order to take a bath or do your laundry is not something that we want to return to. But this can be what it is like if your central heating breaks down and you have no other way of staying warm. Not to mention that you would be living in a very cold house, something which can make people ill during the winter months.
And that is why it can be a good idea to pay for central heating protection in the form of insurance or a cover plan. Most suppliers of boilers Geen warm water will be able to offer you a scheme through which your central heating system is protected against breakdowns, repairs and replacements. Although your warranty will guard you against the premature malfunction if boilers, you will get quicker service and many more benefits if you pay for protection.
These benefits include the following:
o Free Regular Check-Ups; You will be entitled to at least one check-up each year that you pay for protection. Many people choose to have this in time for winter so that they can be sure they will have no problems with their system during the cold months.
o Free Parts; Sometimes companies will charge you for any spare parts they have had to use to fix a broken boiler, even if it was within the warranty period. With insurance you are covered against any expensive parts needed in repairs, no matter how old your central heating system is.
o Free Repairs; Just like free parts, protection covers you against any fees normally incurred when an unprotected boiler breaks down. This includes parts as mentioned but also labour costs and correspondence.
o 24 Hour Service; Another benefit of paying for central heating protection is the on-call service 24 hours a day. No matter if you call at 11 in the morning or 11 at night, you will be able to speak to a qualified central heating engineer for advice and call them out to your home if necessary.
These benefits are too good to ignore, especially if you consider how much it costs to pay for a repair or to replace your boiler, which can be hundreds of pounds. Look into the services that your current supplier offers and see if any other companies will cover your boiler. If you are buying new central heating then make sure you ask about the insurance and cover protection plans.
