With Gas Boiler Breakdown Cover, if something goes wrong you can rely on one of our approved engineers to get things up and running again. New customers will also get a free boiler service in year 1 – it usually takes place within the first 90 days of your cover start date.
You can now claim as many times as you like. If it’s a gas boiler breakdown, there’s no claims value limit as long as your boiler isn’t Beyond Economical Repair (BER). If it’s a Gas Supply Pipe claim, it is up to £4,000 per claim.
We’ve also added some extra features, for all new customers we’ll carry out a Boiler Health Check at the same time as your service, so we can make sure your boiler is safe and that it can be covered.
And the best bit of all is, after 6 months, if your boiler is BER and less than 7 years old, we'll replace it for free. If it is older than 7 years old, we will source, replace and install a new boiler and all you'd have to do is pay for installation.

Are you covered elsewhere?

The boiler at your property must have a power output of less than 70 KW/hr and be fired by natural gas (and not LPG, electric or oil).
What happens after the first year?
The price will increase at renewal. Currently customers in their second year are paying £28.70 a month, £344.40 for the year for this policy (which includes the cost of the boiler service), provided they have made no claims. Your cover will automatically renew unless you tell HomeServe otherwise.
What happens if you change your mind?
You can cancel at any time. If you have made a claim no refund will be due. If you have not claimed you would receive a full refund within the first 28 days. After that it will depend when you cancel.
