Got boiler insurance?

Recent research has suggested that the message about getting boiler insurance in place is very important. However, there remains a long way to go before many realize the serious savings that can be gained from getting the right sort of coverage in place from the get-go.
According to the study, by Everest Energy, more than 27% of households whose boiler broke down during the recent cold snap had insurance to cover the cost of the repair. Meanwhile, almost a third did not have to fork out for the cost of the repair because they were renters, or, worryingly, fixed it themselves.
Given that last winter was the coldest since records began, it’s unsurprising that more people than ever were hit by a heating howler as pipes froze and burst and boilers buckled under the strain. The average cost of a repair during the winter alone was found to be over $500, while 180,000 households were unfortunate enough to have to shell out more than twice that to fix their heating.
Getting a new boiler could be one of the best ways to avoid being left in the cold. When looking to get a new one it's worth spending a bit extra for a more reliable unit, which is likely to pay off the next time a cold snap hits.
Of course, another way to stay snug and warm during the winter is to make sure you’ve got boiler coverage in place. Although you’re unlikely to notice the few sheckles spent on your premiums every month, they could make a huge difference if your heating system packs it in, allowing you to quickly get your home back on track with a certified professional. When the alternative is thumbing telephone directories, getting a tradesman round and often paying out a hefty repair bill, doesn’t it make sense to make sure you’re covered?
