If you already have home insurance make sure that you read the small print and see if you already have emergency cover as an added bonus, however most companies do not offer this and you usually have to find the cover yourself and add it to your existing cover. Do not add cover that is unnecessary as you will be paying for a policy that isn’t suited to you, make a list of what you are most worried about going wrong within your home and work from there, if your boiler is very old you should consider cover for this or even replacing it however if you are in a new build with a new boiler this will not be your first priority.
