Many others purchase boiler coverage along with their gas provision. Yet, in the price comparison stakes the boiler coverage provided by energy suppliers generally comes up lacking, with the coverage offered by the manufacturer of the boiler of itself often representing better value for money. This is, however, only a rule of thumb and should not be taken for granted.

The other popular option is to purchase boiler coverage through home emergency insurance. It has the potential to be either cheaper or more expensive depending on which policy you choose, and so it is advisable to choose carefully and after paying attention to the full range of offers that are available. However, you will rarely receive the same level of coverage with a home insurance policy as with standalone boiler coverage. The amount of money you will be permitted to claim for is far lower and the rate at which your premiums will increase once you have made a claim is likely to be far higher. The upside, however, is that the range of things covered by the policy may be greater and could include things as peripheral as overnight accommodation.
Many people will use comparison sites to find a boiler insurance policy, but it is important to remember not all insurance providers are listed, and the ones that are listed pay to be in the comparison lists. As ever, shopping around online is likely to be how you’ll find the best deals, so don;t take my word for anything. Read the terms and conditions, compare prices, and choose the best coverage for you.
