Re-launch: boiler service and cover for homeowners

Since gas-elec launched the heat-care Plan this winter, there has been a significant increase in demand from clients for boiler breakdown cover that includes an annual boiler service.
 
In response to this request, gas-elec has decided to re-launch the heat-care Plan now with the inclusion of an annual boiler service.
 
“For less than 40p a day, homeowners can have their boiler serviced and covered for 12 months,” says John Davidson, managing director of the gas-elec group.
 
“The re-vamped product is as a result of clients calling us to take out the cover and requesting that their boiler be serviced at the same time. It seemed logical to offer them an all-inclusive product at a greatly reduced price,” adds John.
 
As a result, the combined package means that homeowners make a one-off annual payment of £140, which is inclusive of all taxes, and can rest assured that not only has their boiler been covered, but it has been serviced too.
 
Most manufacturers recommend that their boilers be serviced every year as a neglected boiler can be a principle source of leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. Regular boiler servicing not only protects the people living in the property, but extends the life of the boiler and ensures that it runs efficiently.
 
The benefits of a regular boiler service include:
 
  • Lowers emissions
  • Prolongs the boiler's life
  • Optimises fuel efficiency
  • Makes it safer and greener
  • Minimises breakdowns or emergency call-outs
 
The heat-care Plan gives consumers the security of knowing that their boiler and its components have full breakdown cover for 12 months. Key features* include unlimited calls to the call centre, the inclusion of parts and labour in the annual price should repairs be necessary and a national network of locally-based engineers.
