Community interest company Warm Wales have teamed up with E.ON to offer homeowners up to £300 off the cost of a newly installed full gas central heating system when they connect to the main gas network through Wales and West Utilities Ltd.
The offer is available to homeowners across Wales and South West England who chose to switch to a gas central heating system and is available regardless of whether their energy is supplied by E.ON. Customers already supplied by E.ON are eligible to an additional £100 off the cost, meaning they could benefit from up to £400 off the cost of a newly installed gas central heating system.
The offer gives people more choice when it comes to upgrading to a gas central heating system and is part of a range of options available from E.ON to ensure homeowners have the support they need to become more energy efficient and to save money on their heating bills. In addition to the discount, homeowners can also benefit from E.ON’s interest free finance offer for new full central heating system. Homeowners are able to spread the cost with an interest free loan and a choice of payment terms over two, three or four years to suit their personal circumstances. E.ON Energy Installation Services Limited acts as the credit broker and not the lender.
To further support homeowners to becoming energy efficient, for a limited time all households across Britain can have cavity wall and loft insulation installed for free by E.ON, regardless of whether E.ON is their energy supplier. The insulation, which would usually cost around £7757, is being offered for free to all homeowners, landlords and private tenants who have their landlord’s permission and could save a typical family up to £2858 a year on their heating bills.
Nigel Dewbery, Head of Energy Efficiency at E.ON, said: “We understand that many households struggle to find the available finances to consider upgrading their homes to become more energy efficient but they don’t realise that relying on other forms of heating such as storage heaters can be inefficient and costly.
“E.ON offers a range of solutions to support homeowners, particularly those who are struggling with their energy costs. Through working with Warm Wales to offer the discounts for the central heating system alongside E.ON’s finance offer we hope we can encourage more homeowners to consider upgrading their properties and ensure they can reduce energy costs and become more energy efficient.”
Jonathan Cosson, Projects Director at Warm Wales, said: “Warm Wales was established to support those struggling with their energy costs and provides funding options for energy efficiency improvements in homes.
For many homes, a switch to a gas central heating system can improve the energy efficiency of the home and reduce energy bills significantly. Most of the time it is only people receiving certain benefits who can take advantage of the funding, but working with E.ON we are able to offer discounts to all homeowners and we hope this will encourage them to consider this as a viable option for their homes.”
E.ON customers may also be eligible for a smart meter to ensure they can accurately manage their energy use. Customers can visit eonenergy.com/smart for information about E.ON’s smart meters and to see if they’re able to get one installed. If eligible, they can also book an appointment online.
