What is Boiler Cover?

To put it simply, Boiler Cover is insurance cover for your boiler. That’s pretty much what it boils down to (see what we did there).

Boiler Cover is the protection you can take out to help pay for the cost of repairs if your boiler stops working.

Why do I need Boiler Cover?

If you’re a homeowner, then Boiler Cover is something you should really consider. It just means that if something goes wrong, then a lot of the stress could be relieved.

Protecting your boiler will help you when it comes to expensive boiler repairs or breakdowns, and even your annual boiler service, which you’ll get for free in your first year as part of your Boiler Cover package.

Is Boiler Cover worth it?

Taking out Boiler Cover may feel like one of those expenses that you could do without, but it can really come handy when you need it.

When you consider the £9 a month you’ll pay in your first year for HomeServe Boiler Cover – against the cost of a repair or even a breakdown, you can be safe in the knowledge that if something goes wrong and you’re left with a faulty boiler, we can take care of it for you.

What’s included in our Boiler Cover?

When you make an investment to insure your boiler, you’ll want to know exactly what’s included in the cover. With HomeServe Boiler Cover you’ll be covered for boiler breakdowns that lead to a loss of heat and hot water.

You’ll also be covered for repairs to your boiler’s controls and components, so should you have a technical fault, we can help with that too.

If you have a leaking gas supply pipe after your meter, we can get a Gas Safe engineer out to you to keep you and your family safe.

We get that sometimes your house might be noisy, but you don’t want your boiler adding to that. So if you find yourself in a situation where your boiler is making a noise – we’ve got you covered.

To make sure everything is running smoothly we will carry out a free Boiler Service as part of your first year’s Boiler Cover.

What isn’t included in our Boiler Cover?

Of course, when you take out our cover there are also things that aren’t included.

Such as:

  • The gas pipe leading into your meter
  • Water pipes, tanks, and cylinders external to your boiler
  • Faulty radiators

Am I eligible for Boiler Cover?

While we’re sure you agree that Boiler Cover is a great way to keep on top of any future repairs, unfortunately, it may not be an option for everyone.

Our insurance is only for homeowners whose properties are heated with natural gas. If you’re a landlord then you won’t qualify for this particular cover either, but we do offer a separate Landlord Boiler Cover which comes complete with a Gas Safety Certificate (CP12).

Common questions about our Boiler Cover

Does HomeServe cover older boilers?

We cover a wide range of boilers from new to old. When you take out our Boiler Cover we’ll complete a Boiler Health Check to make sure your boiler is safe and can be covered.

Which boiler brands does HomeServe cover?

We cover the majority of boiler brands like Baxi, Glow-worm, Ideal, Keston, Vaillant and Worcester Bosch. However, there are certain models within these brands which we don’t cover. This is why every boiler policy comes with a Boiler Health Check, where an engineer will review your boiler to see if it meets our eligibility requirements. We may not be able to cover your boiler if:

  • We do not cover the model
  • It has pre-existing issues
  • We’re unable to source parts for the boiler
  • The boiler requires maintenance or does not meet our standard requirements
