Best Buy boiler cover

by Matthew Knight

We do not award boiler servicing contract Best Buys, because our research shows that the vast majority of households would be better off paying for boiler repairs and services on an ad-hoc basis.

How we uncover the best boiler servicing contracts

Although boiler cover is only a good bet financially for a handful of people, compared to paying as you go for repairs and an annual boiler service, we know that a third of people buy boiler cover for peace of mind. 

That’s why we survey thousands of customers who buy a boiler servicing contract each year – so we can tell you which brands boiler cover owners recommend.

When it’s cold outside and your boiler breaks, the last thing you want is boiler cover that lets you down and leaves you in the cold. Without our research you wouldn’t know which companies are rated best by their customers for speed of response when you need a repair, or how easy it is to contact them if your boiler breaks.

Our research also reveals the companies whose customers are less satisfied with their service, or don’t rate them well for value for money.

We don't award Best Buys to boiler cover providers, as we don't want consumers to think this means they should take out boiler cover at all. However, if you do want boiler cover, you can use the results of our research to help you make a decision you won't regret if your boiler does break down.
