Is My Boiler Insured For Winter?

The Daily Mail has recently reported of the importance for homeowners to check whether boiler breakdown is covered by their house insurance this winter. According to the newspaper, a UK boiler breaks down every 20 seconds and the average cost for repair is £500. But during these times of belt-tightening and spending only when absolutely necessary, is it really worth it? Just how much is that boiler part likely to cost?

The cheapest components to replace in a typical Cv ketel vervangen are, as you might expect, the simpler parts including the air vent and the thermostat. Despite the simple function of the internal air vent, the average price for a replacement – according to boiler-care.co.uk – is £85, just £10 cheaper than the boiler thermostat, the secondary monitor that moderates the temperature if the external thermostat fails or shuts down for some reason.

The middle category price range for boiler components is based around the mid-hundreds. These include the expansion vessel, gas burner and the flue fan. The price for a new expansion vessel – the part the controls boiler pressure – is usually about £140. However, the prices for similar components climb quickly. A cost for a new gas burner would be around £150, whilst a new flue fan – an essential safety feature – could be as much as £156.

The boiler components that are likely to set you back the most start at the £200 mark for a new water pump, the part necessary to ensure the heated water moves around the home. However one of the most expensive aspects of the modern boiler is the electronic P. C. B. (Printed Circuit Board). These parts are typically liable to damage from leaking water pipes; and usually replaceable at the sum of £220. Surprisingly however, the most expensive part of a modern household boiler is the heat exchanger. This component is integral as it reduces running costs by transferring the energy produced by hot gas within the system to aid the heating of the water inside. These parts can reach prices of £325!

If you are still unconvinced to check whether your boiler is covered by your contents insurance, it is also important to bear in mind that these costs do not include call-outs, and the subsequent repair time. These prices will vary from company to company, and will no-doubt push up the overall cost considerably should you be stuck without heating in the winter. But rather than trying to incite panic-buying, it seems most wise to consider the history of your boiler, and then to make money and insurance related plans from there onwards.
