I have been with OVO for some time now…

I have been with OVO for some time now and have always found them easy to deal with. Although they are all online they reply to questions quickly and I have always had a satisfactory conclusion. I enjoy using the website as you can see all about your usage and charges easily. It is constantly being updated with more information.

For the last 18 month the smart meter…

For the last 18 month the smart meter has not worked and my bill has been estimated. I was also rather ill and could not pursue this as assiduously as I would have liked. As the gas crisis escalated in the news and as my contract was ending I sought once again to get the problem rectified with the view to moving to another supplier. At last I got a lady who was a lot smarter than the meter. She was Sarah Ferguson of the Complaints Team, based in Scotland. In very short order she had an engineer to replace the meter,reviewed the estimates that had been made, and guided me on to a suitable tarrif if I wished to renew. That I did renew was entirely down to her. Cherish her. The 5 stars are also down to her.Would have been 1 star otherwise. ________

Very happy

I've had no problems with Ovo. The suggested direct debit to split the cost over the year has been accurate and interest is paid on any credit. I like the fact that the electricity is renewable and I can offset my carbon. Would (and have) recommend Ovo.

The options were clear and concise which made the decision easy to make although in view of the increased cost certain economies need to be made in our expenditure in the future.

Frequently asked boiler cover questions

Annual boiler services as part of OVO HomePlan include:

  • A visual check of the boiler
  • The boiler being fired up safely
  • A flue gas analysis efficiency test
  • Opening up the boiler to inspect it, if necessary
  • Checking the flue, ventilation, and system pressure
  • Cleaning the condensate trap
  • Visually checking the radiators, and bleeding them if necessary
  • Checking the hot water cylinder
  • Confirmation in writing that the service has been carried out

Read more in our OVO HomePlan terms and conditions. 

You can start making claims after your first 30 days of cover.

Good news: we cover most domestic central heating boilers that are powered by mains gas. 

We don’t cover:

  • Electric, liquid petroleum gas (LPG) boilers
  • Solid fuel or oil fuelled boilers
  • Back boilers and dual purpose boilers (e.g. similar to Aga, Rayburn)
  • Central heating and/or controls specifically designed for piped or electric underfloor systems
  • Electric central heating systems

Read more in the full OVO HomePlan terms and conditions.

This all depends on exactly what type of plan you choose, so check your policy documents.

If you’ve chosen one of our standard plans without a £60 fixed excess charge, then you won’t pay any excess charges except in specific circumstances. 

 For example, if you’re on our Complete plan without a £60 fixed excess charge, you will have to pay excess charges in the following circumstances: 

  • External drains callouts – £50 excess 
  • Taps and toilets callouts – £50 excess 

 If your boiler is 7 years or older at the beginning of cover you’ll also pay a £50 excess for boiler call-outs. 

 If you choose one of our policies with a fixed £60 excess, then you will be charged £60 for each callout. If the engineer has to make a second visit to fix the same problem (within 30 days of the first visit) you won’t have to pay the call-out charge again. There is no call-out charge for your annual boiler service.

We know there’s a lot of admin to think about when you move house. The good news is, it’s no hassle to take your boiler cover with you. Simply get in touch with us to let us know that you’ve moved, and we can help you set up a new contract. 

We’ll need to know:

  • Your new address
  • The date you moved in
  • Some details about your new boiler

You could also choose to end your boiler cover with us when you move. There might be a charge for this.

There’s a 14-day “cool off” period, during which you can change your mind and cancel your policy at no charge. After that, you can cancel your boiler cover at any time, but there may be a cancellation fee to pay.

In emergencies, such as a water leak, we will aim to get an engineer out to you within two hours.

For all other problems, we’ll aim to get someone to you either:

  • The same day you call, if you call before 9am
  • Within 24 hours

Suspected gas leak? Please urgently call the National Gas Emergency Service: 0800 111 999

Our boiler services usually take place between March and October. When you sign up to one of our plans, we’ll be in touch to let you know which month you’re scheduled in for. It will usually be in the year after you’ve signed up.

The month before your service, we’ll reach out again to find out when the most convenient time and date is for you.

1  No claims can be made within the first 30 days. Terms, conditions, exclusions and cancellation charges apply. For boilers aged 7 years and over up to £2 a month additional premium will be charged. This product has a £99 excess.

2 Terms and conditions apply.
