E.ON offers replacement boilers for £240 to anyone on the Affordable Warmth scheme

This boiler offer has been launched to support people who are struggling to afford to replace their broken boiler and who are in need of an upgrade to help them lower their energy use and bills. We estimate there are more than six million people in the UK that are eligible under the Affordable Warmth scheme and who could potentially benefit from the offers so we’d urge anyone who falls within the benefit criteria to get in touch to find out more.
Nigel Dewbery, Head of Energy Efficiency at E.ON

E.ON is offering homeowners who qualify under the Government led Affordable Warmth scheme the opportunity to purchase a replacement A-rated gas boiler for only £240 (including VAT)1 if their current boiler is faulty or broken, a saving of around £2,000 off the typical cost of a new fully installed gas boiler2.

The replacement gas boilers are available for homeowners who are in receipt of certain benefits or have someone living with them who is. The offer is available to both E.ON and non E.ON customers.

In addition to saving money off the boiler and installation costs, people taking up the offer could save up to £200 a year on their energy bills3 by upgrading to an energy efficient boiler, depending on the type of house and boiler they currently own, so could recuperate their money spent within just over one year.

Homeowners who qualify under the Affordable Warmth scheme can also apply to E.ON for free cavity wall and loft insulation. By installing both measures a typical household could save a further £2754 a year on their heating bills.

Nigel Dewbery, Head of Energy Efficiency at E.ON, said: “This boiler offer has been launched to support people who are struggling to afford to replace their broken boiler and who are in need of an upgrade to help them lower their energy use and bills.

“We estimate there are more than six million people in the UK that are eligible under the Affordable Warmth scheme and who could potentially benefit from the offers so we’d urge anyone who falls within the benefit criteria and who needs a replacement boiler or cavity wall and loft insulation to get in touch to find out more.”

For customers not eligible under the Affordable Warmth scheme, E.ON offers interest free finance for a new full central heating system and the ability to spread the cost with an interest free loan and pay monthly options over up to three years5. E.ON Energy Installation Services Limited acts as the credit broker and not the lender6. Visit eonenergy.com/boilers to find out more.

Notes to editors

  1. The customer will need to pay £240 towards the standard replacement of the gas boiler if theirs is broken or faulty. E.ON Energy Solutions Limited will pay the remainder as part of the Government scheme called Affordable Warmth. Customers must meet the correct eligibility criteria and the offer is subject to a home survey. There may be additional extras or further work required alongside replacement of the boiler, for which the customer will need to cover the cost. The assessor will let the customer know how much this will be on completion of the free home survey, and it’s then completely up to the customer if they want to proceed to installation. Visit eonenergy.com/ecohome for full terms and conditions.
