Home Emergency Insurance and Boiler Breakdown Cover

Nearly six in ten householders who buy a stand-alone Home Emergency policy will make a home emergency claim within one year (ICM Research) – you could be one of them! startrescue.co.uk provides a comprehensive package of covers through one policy; no need to take out separate policies through your water company for plumbing and drainage insurance and central heating services cover through your energy supplier.

Our experienced contractors and heating engineers deal with over 70 different central heating boiler manufacturers and over 4,000 boiler models! We offer Silver, Gold and Platinum cover levels which are dependent on the boiler breakdown cover that suits your needs best. The costs of home emergency issues can quickly spiral out of control, but with annual servicing and emergency boiler repairs the life of your central heating boiler can be extended reducing the risk of an expensive premature replacement.

What is Home Emergency Cover?

In a Which? Survey of 10,000 people in the UK, 48% had experienced problems with their boilers, with a third of the respondents who bought a boiler since April 2005 needing to have it repaired at some time after installation. The cost of the average combined buildings and contents home insurance policy was £310 in the first quarter of 2016, according to the Association of British Insurer’s Home Insurance Premium tracker. Buying Emergency Home Assistance separately allows you to smooth out the costs so that you don’t have to budget for the expense of your home insurance premium and Home Emergency add-on at the same time.
