Emergencies in the home are never pleasant; the stress caused, the time taken researching and waiting for a reputable engineer to arrive, and the unexpected expenses involved in a full and professional repair... Thankfully, the introduction of home maintenance plans in recent years have provided a straightforward, cost-effective way to avoid these troubles.

Take for example, the price of an average boiler service and emergency repair: £443. Pretty pricey to pay out at short notice. However, with a boiler cover plan, you could relax in the knowledge that this type of job would be carried out at no extra cost to you, and would all be included in your monthly plan price.

Obviously, you must pay attention to the small print. You might be happily paying your monthly plan price only to discover that a certain part, equipment or area of the home isn't covered when things go wrong. It's always smart to know exactly what is covered under the plan to avoid disappointment.

Also, make sure to check that 'hidden extras' like VAT, parts and labour, as well as a guarantee are included. As well as these features, the very best plans(*cough* Rightio's Care Club*cough*) have unlimited, priority callouts for all manner of home emergencies included too!

So, taking into account savings on home emergencies, reliable engineers available 365 days of the year, and the peace of mind a maintenance plan provides, we can see why most households now prefer this option to searching through the old yellow pages when trouble arises...
