Very satified customer.

I have never had any problem with OVO, I have been with them for several years now and not because I don't 'check around' because I do. whenever my deal is approaching its end, they contact me in plenty of time, which is important to me, and I am able to move onto a new deal or stay on the same. They keep me informed of my balance on a regular basis, again something which is important to me, and getting money back is not really a problem, at least for those who are computor literate, and if you are not ( Which I am not, they guide you through the process if necessary)

Super-helpful with many issues

I had many questions about 3 OVo accounts in my name which i had having moved out of my house for 6 months and moved back in again. Fergus patiently worked through all my questions on each account with me. On the first account, we confirmed it was all as I expected. On the second account, Fergus carefully checked when my £297 refund would arrive. And on the third account (now closed), he explained all the transactions on it to my satisfaction and advised me to pay the balance of £1.07 owing now rather than waiting for OVo to take another DD payment of £73 and then refunding me the surplus. This is did and Fergus also advised me that I could reduce my DD on my active account because the smart meter readings were showing I was using less than expected. And he did that for me too. So we worked through a lot of issues and fully resolved them all. He spent a lot of time helping me and I feel fully satisfied. I was impressed at Fergus’ knowledge of the OVo systems and his willingness to see issues through to the end. A star employee!

Good advice and a sympathetic ear

I was looking for advice as coming to end of 2yr fixed SSE plan, your operative, so sorry but forgot his name, was so helpful and gave me good advice. He was also sympathetic with regard to increasing prices, though not his fault, it was really helpful to give me a little more clarity as to how to move forward.

Impressed all in all

The support operative I called very quickly resolved an issue at my property that was preventing me from signing up online, then took me through available options and tariffs efficiently and professionally. He turned around what I thought would be a frustrating phone call into one that was successful within a short time. Excellent work. A bonus was that call waiting times were also short.

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, eligibility criteria, and exclusions and cancellation charges apply. For boilers aged 7 years and over up to £2 a month additional premium will be charged.

2 Offer ends 31/05/22. Savings claim based on Complete Plan £0 excess at £348 a year.

3 If your boiler is less than 7 years old at the initial policy start date and less than 10 years old at renewal, we’ll pay up to £2,500 for the boiler replacement. If your boiler is 7 years old or more, but less than 10 years old at the initial policy start date and less than 10 years old at renewal, we’ll pay a contribution of £400 towards the boiler replacement.
