Energy Plus Protection Sept 2019

Our new tariff includes Boiler & Controls Breakdown cover, Plumbing & Drains cover and Home Electrical cover giving you security and peace of mind at no additional cost in case anything goes wrong.

Boiler & Controls Breakdown cover (worth £36 a year) will cover repairs to your gas boiler and controls, including your thermostat and programmer with an excess of £99 for each repair. We will also replace your boiler, if it’s less than seven years old, if we can’t repair it.

Plumbing & Drains cover (worth £42 a year) looks after your plumbing, drains and water supply pipe with an excess of £60 for each repair.

Home Electrical cover (worth £30 a year) with repairs to electrical wiring, fuse boards and electrical fittings in your home and outbuildings. With an excess of £60 for each repair.

By also signing up to this tariff, you will get unlimited call outs every year, day or night, which includes parts and labour (limits apply, your call out history is taken into account at renewal).

There are some items that aren’t included in this cover, they are:

  • Repairs to central heating system, including radiators
  • Annual Service Visit (or Gas Safety Certificate CP12)
  • Removing sludge or scale or repairing the damage it causes if we tell you it might be a problem for your boiler
  • Showers and taps
  • Shared drains

Frequently asked questions

What is a kilowatt hour (kWh)?

A kWh stands for kilowatt hour – the unit used to measure energy use. 1 kWh will power a 40 watt light bulb for 25 hours.

What is a Personal Projection?
Your Personal Projection is an estimate of what you’re likely to pay over the next 12 months. We work it out using the unit rate for where you live, daily standing charge, any applicable discounts and how much energy we think you’ll use in the next 12 months. It includes VAT.
What happens if I change the way I pay?

If you move from Direct Debit to pay by Cash or Cheque, your unit rate will increase. You can see the difference between Direct Debit and Cash or Cheque rates by updating your personalised quote. We’ll always give you seven days’ notice before we change the way you pay, though. These prices are all correct as of 1st August 2017.

Do I need to tell my current supplier I'm switching?
No - once you've given us your details and confirmed that you want to switch, we'll handle everything for you.
