HomeTree boiler cover

published: 27 September 2022

If you’re looking for straightforward, uncomplicated boiler cover from a small provider that boasts satisfied customers, Hometree could be the one for you.

What is Hometree boiler cover?

Hometree is an insurance intermediary offering simple, good value insurance packages for boilers and central heating.

Coverage starts from the straightforward Your Boiler package, offering just boiler-only cover; to Your Heating, which adds central heating cover; through to Your Home, which gives you plumbing, drains, and electrics cover too.

Even its most basic boiler cover offers unlimited callouts and a 24/7 emergency line. And all plans are available for either homeowners or landlords.

Is Hometree boiler cover any good?

Hometree boiler cover certainly has a few things to shout about. Its prices are good value, and callouts and repairs are unlimited.

Independent customer reviews are on the whole quite positive, with customers praising speedy response times and excellent, tidy work from engineers.

However, Hometree may not give you the most comprehensive cover out there. Some firms, such as British Gas, offer more in-depth boiler packages with more extras – such as accidental damage cover, kitchen appliance cover, or gas stove servicing.

But, for basic boiler cover and general peace of mind, Hometree is well worth considering – especially as it’s attractively priced.

What’s included?

All Hometree boiler cover plans, from the basic level Your Boiler upwards, include:

  • Unlimited callouts

  • Annual boiler servicing

  • 24/7 UK helpline

  • Repairs to natural gas boiler, flue, controls, and gas supply line

  • Annual gas certificate (landlord plans only)

Upgrade to the Your Heating plan and you’ll also get your central heating covered.

And at the top tier, the more comprehensive Your Home plan covers plumbing, drains, and home electrics too.

With all packages, there’s also the option to add gas fire protection – safety checks for gas fires.

Does Hometree offer other types of cover?

Hometree is largely concerned with boiler cover. But it does have a top-tier plan, Your Home, which covers a few extra things: plumbing, drains, and home electrics.

How soon can you make a claim with Hometree?

You can make a claim with Hometree 14 days after your plan goes live.

Unfortunately that means you can’t make a claim straight away, but the good news is that you only need to wait two weeks after signing up.

Incidentally, Hometree plans also allow you a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period. If you change your mind within the first two weeks and want to cancel for any reason whatsoever, you can do so without penalty.

Does Hometree carry out boiler servicing?

Yes. Annual boiler service is included in all Hometree plans. If a fault is found, it’ll be fixed during the service, or a repair will be booked in for later.

How do I get in touch with Hometree?

If you’re a customer and need a repair, the best way to get in touch with Hometree is via the contact page on its website.

If you want to contact Hometree for any reason, you can call 0333 060 5271.
