Boiler repair FAQs

What is a boiler protection plan?

Our boiler protection plan is designed for broken boilers that aren’t within their manufacturer's guarantee. It’s powered by Domestic & General, a leading specialist in appliance care, and some of the UK’s biggest boiler brands: Baxi, Ferroli, Glow-worm, Heatline, Ideal, Main, Potterton, Vaillant and Vokera. The protection plan offers to fix your boiler and, if you have future boiler troubles, give you approved repairs for the duration of your plan.

Can I get a boiler protection plan?

If your Baxi, Glow-worm, Heatline, Ideal, Main, Potterton, Vaillant or Vokera boiler is less than 15 years old, or your Ferroli boiler is less than 10 years old, and isn’t working properly, you can benefit from a boiler protection plan.

When your boiler’s out of guarantee, repairs for breakdowns can be expensive. With our protection plan you can get that first fix, plus approved repairs of future faults for 12 months, for a fixed monthly price. That means you don’t have a big one-off payment.
