Priority breakdown service 

We'll repair your boiler or central heating system as a priority over initial inspections and annual services.

Boiler repair and rescue

Our Boiler Repair service is £195, but you can pay just £75 if you take out any annual SSE Boiler or Heating Cover plan at the same time (excludes SSE Boiler Breakdown and SSE Heating Breakdown Cover). You'll be covered for the whole year for boiler breakdowns and you'll save £120 - that's more than the cost of 6 months cover.

£120 saving based on the cost of SSE Boiler Repair (£195) compared with the cost of £75 when you take an annual SSE Heating or Boiler Cover product at the same time (excludes SSE Boiler Breakdown and SSE Heating Breakdown Cover). The saving on Boiler Repair equates to more than 6 monthly payments on the eligible Cover products in this offer.

Boiler and heating frequently asked questions

How long will the process take?

Signing up is easy and should only take you a few minutes. Your contract will start the next business day after you sign up (not bank holidays or weekends)

What will happen when I take out cover?

You will receive a welcome pack in the post which will have all the details for you in case you ever need them to hand. We will call you to organise an initial inspection at a time that is suitable for you.

What does ‘Excess’ mean?

When someone pays an excess, it means that they will be paying the first part of a claim. If you have a £0 excess however, you will not have to pay anything.

Who are SSE?

We first formed in 1998 when Scottish Hydro Electric merged with Southern Electric to become Scottish and Southern Energy. Later we incorporated SWALEC and Atlantic into our family and we’re now known as SSE. You may be familiar with our local brands – SSE Southern Electric, SSE Scottish Hydro and SSE SWALEC. But no matter what our name is, our primary aim is to give great customer service to all of our customers.
