Insurance cover for your oil-fired boiler


Specialist oil boiler insurance cover from Boilerplus with an exclusive 10% discount* for Rix Petroleum customers. Oil Boilers and central heating systems are not usually covered under a home insurance policy, so any breakdown may come as a nasty surprise.

That is why Rix Petroleum is delighted to have teamed up with Boilerplus to provide our customers with access to oil boiler insurance cover in the event of a fault or breakdown.

Why choose Boilerplus?

Boilerplus offers specialist breakdown cover for oil boilers. When your oil boiler fails it often does at the most inconvenient time and the cost of repair can often be expensive and difficult to afford at short notice.

The Boilerplus policy was written with oil fired boilers in mind, and not gas-fired units which means that they can arrange an insurance policy to meet your needs.

It's never been easier to buy Boilerplus, you can now buy your cover online. Simply visit Boilerplus, answer a few questions and get an instant quote. What's more, if you buy your cover online, as well as your 10% discount, you'll save an additional £27.50. There are also a number of payment options available.

What does Boilerplus cover?

  • Any conventional, combination or condensing oil-fired boilers under 200,000 BTU/hr.
  • The cost of repairing or replacing any failed components within the boiler, up to a total of £1,500 (including VAT) per policy year.
  • A contribution of up to £750 (including VAT) towards the water jacket during the first 10 years of your boiler’s life if the part fails and can’t be replaced.
  • Our standard cover includes water circulating pump (or warm air fans), motorised valve, time clock/ programmer, and fire safety valve, as well as the addition of an inhibitor up to a maximum of £20 per claim.
  • The optional system cover includes all conventional radiators, radiator valves, individual room thermostats, the expansion tank and plastic oil tank (not contents).
  • Boilers up to 20 years old are accepted at policy inception, and there’s no boiler age limit once cover is in place so you can renew year on year without worry.

Please note: Boilerplus Oil Boiler Insurance does not include the cost of servicing, which is your own responsibility leaving you free to choose who you want to service your central heating system (something we recommend you do once a year). Rix Heating Services does offer Oil Boiler Servicing throughout Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and the East Coast of Scotland. Visit the Oil Boiler insurance page on our website for further details.
