In the past 7 days I have noticed BG visit properties in the cul de sac where I live 3 times and two independent central heating service people visit twice. That is 5 visits to 5 different properties in 7 days. The cul de sac is a total of 34 houses. Judging by the time the service people were there it must have been more than a service and I assume central heating issues. This lead me to wonder how many members here have had central heating problems this winter so far.
No, I ain’t been curtain twitching but seen these vans when going out for a walk!
I also looked at BG’s service plan. The cheapest (if you don’t go for an excess) is £234 per annum. I think they require you to have their plan and want their longer warranty period for their boilers (not of great value). With the average lifespan of a boiler being 10 to 13 years you pay BG more than the cost of a new boiler!
