Hi,

I have a pretty old warm air heating system in my house and I was wondering what peoples thoughts of the Homecare package with British Gas were? I know I can get £40 quidco if i take it out but would I be better off just having it serviced by a corgi registered engineer?

I'd ideally like central heating but cant' afford it...

I've had it for about 3 years (homecare 200) and have been pretty happy, I've had them out approx once a year for boiler probs and they've done a good job tho it's mostly next day not sameday service. Neighbour and friend have it and they are happy too. Check out all the levels of service before you decide.

You can pay a reduced monthly amount on a sort of PAYG tarriff and they charge an additional flat fee of £50 per call out. I'm on this and it works out a fair bit cheaper if you're not going to call them out a lot.

Check out local plumbing costs too. Last one I called out charged £45 per half hour + parts + VAT...

i'm not sure homecare covers older systems - think they have to be fairly new....

yes they do, refused me on a 20 yr old boiler that worked perfectly

now I have a new heating system and get my Corgi mates to check it for free :)

have been withthem for about 10 years now. had to use them las year when my boiler packed in. no Heating or hot water, middle of winter, Priority? Not to them, took a week to attend.

Fed up with the service so went to hydro board instead... But, when they examined the boiler they wouldnt cover it as it has too many problems!!!!

This is a 5 yr old boiler that was fitted by... Scottish Gas!, so needs must and Im back with them cos at leat they cant argue that the boiler is pants as it was them that reccommended it!

Wouldnt use homecare if I didnt have to though, have a look at Scottish Gas, they are cheaper and probably better!
