Common Boiler Problems and Insurance Options

By David Samson Subscribe to RSS | June 2nd 2012 | Views:

There are a variety of modern boilers designed with excellent safety measures meaning the likelihood of an accident is minimal. Some boilers can still fail though, leaving you high, dry and in need of an engineer. Boiler insurance gives the benefit of round the clock support and yearly checkups. There are some things to consider though regarding the extent of coverage and payment options.

There are several options for reliable and efficient domestic boilers. One which can relatively easily be fixed is are condensing boilers. This will mean less excess charges as the engineer won't need to be called unlike some more complicated boilers. Installed these boilers simply need a connection of the pipes from the heating system to the boiler along with incoming and outgoing water and, of course, a gas pipe connection. These connections will be made by the engineer and their correct installation are crucial to the boiler functioning effectively. A major improvement with this type of boiler is the lack of need for a hot water storage tank. This means the boiler takes up less space on the premises. Rather than storing hot water they work with mains pressure which heats the water as it goes through the boiler. Every boiler has compromises in it's design but the combination boiler focuses on efficiency and immediate water and heat.

People have found these boilers stop working for lots of reasons. It can often be falling pressure to the boiler. They have a pressure gage which measures the pressure. If this happens it may be low. It is also possible that the fuel/electricity/temperature connections to the boiler are switched off or not connected properly. With insurance the company will send out an engineer to fix the problem.

Choices of boiler and heating system insurance for homes or businesses allows for as comprehensive or as simple insurance as wanted. The first question is whether you want full coverage for a few pounds more a month or the choice of paying an excess every time an engineer is called out. Secondly the range of benefits offered by the majority of insurer's are: yearly checkups, customer helplines, free call outs, parts and labour included and replacement of your boiler if it is broken and over seven years old. Some companies don't consider a lack of hot water to be an emergency and won't immediately send an engineer but will give advice over the phone. Another question to ask is how much of your heating system is covered. Some offers cover only the boiler and some will cover the whole central heating system, the plumbing and drains and the electrics.

There are lots of options for insurance and boiler choices. Being informed is crucial to finding the right boiler, insurance deal and way of paying for it.
