As a landlord, you have a range of responsibilities when it comes to maintaining your properties and you must ensure you’re providing your tenants with a home that is protected and secure. This means you must install and maintain the appropriate heating and security systems.
Studies show that up to 77% of UK residents use central heating to warm their homes during the winter, so chances are, your properties are likely to have boilers installed already. It is essential that you ensure your properties heating system is maintained and in good working order, so your tenants are warm and safe in their homes.
What is BoilerCare Cover and what does it include?
BoilerCare Cover is an insurance for your heating system that gives you peace of mind knowing that any issues your tenants experience with their boiler could be covered. By taking out a contract with Butco you can remove the need for your tenants to contact you if their heating fails.
Whilst your home insurance may provide some level of boiler cover, you may find that the level of cover may be limited and you will still need to ensure your boiler has been serviced. If you do not have cover, it’s important you find a suitable boiler service cover plan to fulfil all your needs.
Choosing a dedicated and passionate boiler service provider that offers an industry-leading service and a wide range of cover to suit your requirements is essential.
How long do boilers last?
Boilers will naturally deteriorate from usage over a period of time. A well-maintained boiler should last between 10 and 15 years, with regular servicing and repairs if needed.
In the UK, the average domestic boiler is used more seasonally. Whilst the UK is familiar with fluctuating weather, we often experience extremely cold temperatures in the winter months, which is when we rely on our boiler systems to keep our homes warm.
How can you tell if there is something wrong with your boiler?
If you’re worried your boiler is breaking, it’s best to contact our call-out team. 98% of call outs are responded to on the same day, meaning you can rest assured that your tenants remain safe and warm in their homes.
Here are some features you should look for if you’re worried your boiler is breaking:
