Default Gas central heating maintenance - cover policy?

Hi there, we have recently bought a static caravan after owning a tourer for 8 years. It's a cosalt canton super. It has gas central heating and I'm wondering if I am able to take out a policy for breakdown cover in the same way I do my central heating at home. If I can does anyone have any recommendations. Best wishes . Anne

If it's a Worcester-Bosch then you can. It may depend on how old it is though.

to the forum Anne, we have a Worcester Bosch system and I must admit I have never thought about a care plan. I think we must spend enough for us not to have thought about it

Anne2912. Like you I sold my tourer earlier inthe season and bought a static I am not sure I have ever heard of anyone taking out a maintenance contract on c/h in a static if you have done that with your heating at home why not ask the company you are with? Good Luck and I hope you get many years of happy holidays from your static.

if it is anything like what i have at home with a certain gas company.... then i think that you will have to weigh up the costs...
x amount per month x 12 month contract

or a one of figure once every now and again.. if you ever need to get someone out..

but suerly if your sites got a policy were you need too supply a type of servicing ie drain up and down some get there gas checks included so would that not be the best way to go?

Thanks got all your supplies, I pay 16 a month for the policy I have for the house. I'll ask that company. I wouldn't go with a certain big co because I have heard too many stories about them telling people they need work done when they don't. I'll let you know how I get on. Anne ps what do you do in the winter, does the system get drained down and is this separate from draining down the water system ?

Hi Anne, we have central heating, but don't have a maintenance agreement on it. However, we do have it serviced and checked annually.

We have our water drained down by our site for the winter, but the cental heating system doesn't need draining. It has anti freeze in the system and as long as your levels are ok, it doesn't need draining.
