E.ON reminds people who qualify for Affordable Warmth to check if they can get support with home insulation and boilers

With temperatures expected to plummet this week, E.ON is reminding people to check if they can take advantage of its offers on cavity wall insulation and brand new, efficient boilers via the Affordable Warmth scheme.

Pay £240 for a new boiler if your boiler is broken or faulty

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.

Free cavity wall and loft insulation

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 £2753 a year on their heating bills.

Get up to £1,000 towards the cost of replacing your old inefficient gas boiler4 if your boiler works, but is inefficient 

Homeowners with properties that have cavity walls which have not been insulated, could get £1,000 off the cost of a new boiler, plus free cavity wall insulation under the Affordable Warmth scheme.

How to spot an inefficient boiler

An inefficient boiler is old, generally installed before 2005 and it’ll have a metal or ceramic flue (exhaust pipe). Energy efficient, A-rated boilers have a plastic flue.

To be eligible for Affordable Warmth, you need to be a homeowner and you, or someone living with you, needs to be claiming certain benefits.

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.

  4. Offer is subject to survey and homeowners needs to have a mains gas non–condensing boiler rated D, E, F or G and unfilled cavity walls. Funding towards the cost of the boiler installation and insulation is available through The ECO Affordable Warmth scheme. Installation of the cavity wall insulation would need to be completed before the boiler is installed. Boiler would need to be installed within 6 months of the cavity wall installation.
