According to latest research by Defaqto only 22% of home insurance policies include cover for home emergencies, such as boiler breakdown.
As colder nights draw in and temperatures tumble, financial information business Defaqto urges people to check whether they have protection for their boiler and heating system before winter sets in and to check their home insurance policies.
Brian Brown, Head of Insight at Defaqto, comments: “As the temperature starts to drop, having hot water and heating becomes a higher priority again. Modern boilers are expensive and the cost of having to replace one unexpectedly can be a nasty shock. If you don’t have the funds to pay for this, then a boiler breakdown policy that includes boiler replacement, may be a good option for you.”
