Why Should You Choose Southern Energy Solutions For Boiler Cover in Hastings?

If you are reading this blog, the likelihood is that either 1) you currently have boiler cover in Hastings and are unhappy with your provider or 2) you don’t have cover and are worried about the consequences of not having it!

Whatever your reason for coming here, we hope that you will find this piece useful and informative.

Why do you need boiler cover?

Articles from and The Guardian have touched on many people’s fears about boiler cover – the main one of which is why should I even have it in the first place? You might think that, because your boiler has never broken down, the policy is a waste of money and you’d be better off just paying for repairs if the boiler did break down. In fact, 97% of people said in a customer survey from that they thought boiler cover wasn’t worth it.

But, and this is a big but, in separate research from GoCompare30% of homeowners worried about their boiler breaking down over winter, and also that 43% of them had experienced boiler problems in the past three years, paying out a whopping £344 on average for repairs! Perhaps even more worryingly, one in ten people paid bills in excess of £1000!

Problems with boilers can often cost you more than money, though. Your sanity is likely to be under threat if your boiler breaks down in the middle of your morning rush, as you try to get the kids ready for school! Don’t tear your hair out just yet, though.

Okay, I need boiler cover. How much does it cost?

Well, again thanks to the busy bees at, we know that the average cost of a boiler servicing contract is £242 a year. Some of the popular policies include HomeCare plans from British Gas and SSE Boiler Cover 50, which are the nearest matches to our servicing plans. In comparison, our plans cost £16/month, which means a charge of just £192 for the year – the same price as British Gas and cheaper than SSE Boiler Cover 50!

What are the features of the plans?
