Top 5 Reasons To Have A Home Maintenance Plan

At YourRepair, we know how important it is to have a home maintenance plan; but not everyone is as aware of the huge range of benefits which such a plan can provide. As such, we’ve decided to put together this article, outlining the top five reasons to have a home maintenance plan.

Why Should I Have A Home Maintenance Plan?

Firstly, we should start by outlining exactly what this kind of plan has to offer. Think about your home. Think about those vital parts of the home which cause a real headache whenever they go wrong. The boiler. The heating. The electrics. The plumbing. Almost all of us depend on these key elements every day but rarely give them a second thought until something goes wrong. When something goes wrong fixing the issue can be difficult, time-consuming and expensive.

A home maintenance plan is designed to cover these issues. For a small monthly fee, you’re protected against the cost of breakdowns. If you sign up for a plan from YourRepair, for example, you can rely on our national database of plumbers, electricians, and engineers who are ready if the worst happens. But – and this is the important part – these plans also cover essential maintenance in your home, things like regular boiler servicing, that can prevent accidents before they happen. As we’ll see, there are plenty more advantages.

Peace of Mind

People rarely think about their boiler until something goes wrong. But if such an incident has happened to you in the past, you'll know how much of a hassle it can be to put right let alone the unexpected repair bill that hits your pocket. You might be worried about an older boiler breaking or your drains developing a leak. If you’ve just moved into a new home, if you’re worried about not having the expertise to deal with a situation, or if you don’t know who to call when something goes wrong, you should consider a home maintenance plan.

With a home maintenance plan, you get peace of mind. You can be sure that the regular maintenance and servicing will catch issues before they happen and – in the worst case scenario – all you have to do is log a repair request with us. It means you can relax and go back to not worrying about your boiler ever again.


One of the biggest benefits to these plans is the huge amount of money you’ll save. If you have ever had a burst pipe in your home, you will know the cost of bringing out an emergency plumber. It’s a fact of life that turning to a tradesman in an emergency situation can be very costly, especially if your situation occurs out of hours or during a holiday. The extra costs can exacerbate an already awful situation.

By paying a small monthly fee, however, you protect against these inflated costs, you can even fix your price for up to 3 years! Instead of paying through the nose for a one-off service, you can save money by investing in one of our plans and be sure that you will not be charged exorbitant prices when your boiler develops a pressing issue in the middle of the night.

Regular Maintenance

Part of the money saving benefits of taking out a home maintenance plan is that you can start planning for the long term. Just like a car, a boiler should have regular servicing. But many people simply forget this fact. When the boiler breaks, many of the issues could have been caught at an earlier date and, thus, avoided. Regular maintenance is one of the best ways in which to guard against emergencies in your home.

With the right plan, you can take advantage of the best maintenance available. We’ll help you arrange a visit from the best engineers at regular intervals. You can keep your boiler in the best condition and make sure that you’re protected against any issues which might develop. If you’d like to learn more about how we can help check out our website
