The most important thing to do is to make sure your cover is adequate for your needs. Some policies will only cover costs up to a certain amount per year or per claim, and often the policy will limit the number of claims you can make per year - bad news if you have a tricky to fix fault.
Other companies will not pay for problems related to a build-up of limescale or boiler servicing and inspection. It is also worth knowing the age and model of your boiler, as some older and more obscure boilers are often not covered. This may be because older boilers often do not meet efficiency and safety standards requested by many insurers.
There is also usually a no-claims period attached to policies to prevent people taking out cheap boiler cover on the day their heating packs up and making a claim.
There is no 'wrong' option when purchasing your policy, but it’s important to compare policies carefully to make sure the one you choose covers you for everything you need it to.
