Help spread the cost

We know the cost of a new boiler can be a concern which is why we offer several options on how you could pay. You can choose to pay for your new boiler in full or you could take advantage of a finance package, spreading the cost of the boiler over 3, 4, 5 or 10 years. Representitive APR from 12.9%[56] on monthly payment plans. By comparison, British Gas advertised APR from 14.9%[57]. Not only could the overall cost of a new boiler be more expensive with British Gas but you could also be paying a higher amount for it each month as part of your finance plan.

Warranty

The longest period of advertised boiler warranty available with British Gas is 5 years, after this time there appears to be no option to extend the warranty on the boiler[58]. At Help-Link, we offer the choice in the length of manufacturer backed warranty to up to 10 years. We are the only national boiler company to offer such a warranty, so your boiler could still be covered a decade after purchasing it.

If you are looking for a boiler replacement we’re here to help you, offering excellent customer service at reasonable prices. Get in touch with us today and we can arrange for one of our expert surveyors to visit your home and answer all your boiler questions.
