Are boiler warranties different to a guarantee?
Yes, a standard warranty just covers certain things on your boiler which will be outlined by the manufacturer. A boiler guarantee on the other hand covers you for everything if your boiler breaks including labour, parts and even a new boiler if the gas Safe registered heating engineers can’t fix it at a reasonable cost. This is why a guarantee or extended warranties are worth every penny.
Different boiler manufacturer warranties
Different boiler manufacturers do offer a variation of warranties. Most manufacturers like Worcester bosch, Viessmann, Baxi, Ideal offer a standard 2-year warranty on every boiler as a minimum, some offer more of up to 5 years or even 10 years. The Atag Economiser comes with 10 years as a minimum. All these boiler brands offer an extended warranty on top of the manufacturer’s warranty. This will vary depending on the boiler model.
How much is a boiler warranty?
A boiler warranty is included with the boiler when you buy it. How long depends on the make and model. The more you pay for your boiler the longer the warranty generally is. It is all factored into the cost of the boiler.
Boiler Warranty Cost Breakdown
If you think that the average boiler with 10 years warranty will cost around £800 for just the boiler, then over 10 years you are essentially paying £80 per year. £80 per year for not having to pay anything extra for something as important as your boiler breaking is money well spent.
Boiler warranty terms and conditions
The minimum standard that every boiler manufacturers warranty will stipulate is that the boiler must be installed and serviced every year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. This is to ensure that the boiler is looked after, working properly and stopping any potential breakdowns or costs to the manufacturer. If this is done, you can expect years of hassle-free heating.
