Why do I need a care plan?
As homeowners, we tend not to think about the importance of our heating system, until a problem occurs.
Costs can vary for a boiler repair and you can expect to pay around £150 for minor repair up to £1000 for a more severe problem, such as replacing the heat exchanger.
Here at Croston Plumbing & Heating, we wanted to outline a number of reasons why you should be considering a care plan for your home:
Boilers can be expensive to repair
We touched on this point above, but it’s crucial to understand that repairs can be very expensive and a lot of the time is an unplanned household expense that can be avoided or minimised.
Service your boiler annually to prevent problems
Regularly servicing your boiler before or after the winter months will prepare it for the next season, helping it to function properly.
Provides peace of mind
When you are paying your monthly care plan amount, you are “buying” yourself the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are covered in the event of a boiler problem.
It saves you money
In the event that you don’t have a care plan and need to call out an emergency engineer, call out rates can vary but again are never normally a planned expense
Like with many choices within your home, the decision on whether to arrange a care plan will depend on numerous factors. Many like to have the peace of mind of having a care plan in place as it gives them the reassurances that should problems occur, they don’t have the nasty surprise of unplanned financial costs.
