Factor in renewal cost and any excess if needed repairs and think of putting same money to one side for a new boiler instead some home insurers give A home emergency scheme for an extra small fee, would try and save £25 pcm for new boiler

Are you sure you need it ? Chances are if the boiler is under 7 years old it's still under the manufacturers warranty - Certainly is if its a Vaillant .

Yea mines a baxi potterton it's around 15 years old' funny thing is it's playing up right now' it's losing pressure and making a right racket when it fires up seeing as I'm still covered with D&G until the end of march I'm gonna get them out to it after that I'll be cancelling the policy which is up for renewal at the end of march because I reckon £25 a month is extortionate

Cheers excess is a bit off putting though' paying monthly only to be hit with a £50 excess when/if theirs a fault isn't that appealing

Ours was losing pressure and making a racket too - turns out there was a slow leak in the loft, luckily easily fixable once noticed

Call the gas board, may have nothing to do with the boiler and everything to do with pressure leading into your home from the roadside.

Do all vailant boilers have 7 years warranty. I had a vailant installed in 2014 , through the warm front grant, so didnt pay for it. Will it be under warranty?

check you house insurance, might be cheaper to add home emergency, mines free from Esure

I rang D&G and said I was cancelling, same cover as you, they reduced it to £19 per month.

Normally they require that the boiler is serviced once a year otherwise it won't be covered in an emergency. So it's probably better to get cover elsewhere that includes a service.

Those potterton's just seem to keep on going. Mine got a bit noisy, had a plumber strip it down, removed the heat exchanger, left it overnight in descaler, put it back together. Noise dropped considerably.

Put £100 a year away to pay for any problems. An whole boiler replacement can be less then £1000 and most repairs are less then £200. Our last boiler lasted 27 years and we only replaced it to save on running costs.
