Npower launches new boiler care package as Brits turn up the heat

13th Jul 2012

A survey by Npower has discovered that many people in Britain have switched on their central heating this summer in order to cope with the unseasonal weather. The company has developed a new boiler care tariff in response.

According to Npower’s research as many as 50% of the British population have turned up the heating this summer with the figure rising to 58% among the over-55’s. The company has launched a new combined energy tariff and central heating care package in order to help people keep their boilers in good working order and this means that new customers signing up to the tariff can receive discounts on their normal tariff.

The Bill Saver Tariff, which is already a standard policy, offers annual charges discounted at 7% until August. It forms part of the new package with a new and exclusive central heating care offer tacked on to it. The latter is only available to new customers who sign up to the Bill Saver Tariff. The central heating care element includes unlimited callouts in addition to parts and labour as well as an annual boiler service and safety check. The central heating care offer is available until 30th July.

“The weather over the last couple of months has seen many people in the UK reaching for the heating controls and so it’s important that heating systems are well maintained so they are ready to spring into action when needed” said David Bond, Customer Marketing Manager at Npower. “Signing up to a central heating care product now will keep systems protected over the summer and, crucially, ensures that come winter residents have access to a team of qualified engineers and a 24/7 helpline should anything go wrong. This is a limited offer so we’re encouraging homeowners to sign up now to take advantage of our Bill Saver tariff and our cheapest central heating care together.”
