Frequently asked questions

What happens to my renewal price after the first year?

The price you’ll pay at renewal is likely to increase as your introductory price will have ended, but it will be tailored to your specific details. If you’re paying by direct debit, you will automatically renew, however you can still choose to change or cancel your contract, we'll contact you before your renewal date to remind you.

Can I control my account online?
Yes, with an online account you can arrange a service visit, find out what’s happening with your appointment, book an engineer and submit a meter reading if you have energy with us. We’ve even got a free smartphone app.
Why am I getting a different price, after entering my address?

We use information about your location to tailor the price you pay for HomeCare cover. Factors such as water hardness and property type may influence claims costs, which is reflected in your price.

What does an annual service include?

This is a visit we carry out in each contract year[3] to check your boiler and central heating system or gas appliance (depending on what is included in your agreement) are safe and working correctly.
