The electrical breakdown cover is just like any other breakdown cover you may already have for your car, home or boiler. This is a great idea as these things can be costly when stuff goes wrong, just like when your electrical installation decides to go wrong. This can also be very costly, so having the correct breakdown cover for your individual need is important.
Electrical breakdown cover is a type of insurance that covers some of the costs due to a sudden unexpected event that requires immediate action to prevent further damage or to make your home safe and again habitable—for example, RCD tripping or an unsafe electrical switch.

Do I need an Electrical breakdown cover?
