Affordable Warmth

Can I benefit from the Affordable Warmth scheme?

Find out if you qualify for energy saving home improvements from us as part of our Affordable Warmth scheme.

A new gas boiler

If your boiler is broken or faulty you could get a new one for just £240*. If there are extra costs we'll let you know in your free home survey.

Free cavity wall insulation

We could cover the cost of insulating any cavity walls, making it harder for heat to escape from your home. This also applies to landlords.

Free loft insulation

We could cover the cost of insulating loft spaces if you don't already have insulation, or if it’s less than 100mm thick.

What our customers say

Dallas and Lesley had a gas boiler replacement through our affordable warmth scheme. "Life's so much better now we have the new boiler, we've got instant hot water and nice warm radiators... I would certainly recommend E.ON to other people, it was a very straightforward procedure."

The legal stuff

* The applicant 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. 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.  This offer is available through the Affordable Warmth Scheme and is subject to eligibility and a free home survey. See our eligibility criteria.
