Boiler Switch On Month

The weather may not be cold yet, but it won’t be long until the weather changes and we’re thinking of putting our heating back on.

Boiler & Central Heating Cover can help protect your home in the event your boiler and central heating system stops working but it’s vital to have cover in place before a fault develops.

Read our tips for keeping your boiler and heating working as expected below.

Begin with a boiler service

Your boiler should ideally be serviced once a year by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.

If you add a boiler service to any of your Home Emergency plans with Home Emergency Assist, we’ll typically carry this out between April and September to ensure any potential issues are raised before the colder weather.
