Help & FAQ

How do I make sure I don’t run out of credit?

We have tried to design our system to help you stay in credit:

  • Your smart meter will display how much credit you have left on the home screen in the top left corner
  • Your smart meter will show you a ‘Low credit warning’ when you have £10.00 credit left. A tone starts playing and a message appears on the screen. You can adjust the credit level that makes this happen.
  • “Credit Protection” suspends your supply when you have £1.00 credit left. This is to make sure you don’t run out of credit if you have left your system on by mistake.

You can turn this feature on or off.

  • You can set and adjust top-up reminders on your smart meter, using your device settings. You can also set at what amount you would like it to remind you to top up.
  • You can set up an Auto top-up through your online account. Simply set a minimum credit level to act as a trigger for an automatic top-up payment. You can adjust the amount of the payment, too.

Customers needing extra help

We want to ensure that all of our customers receive the right service to meet their needs. If you have special requirements or a disability, we will do our best to help you. To make sure we can help, you should contact us so we can add your details to our Priority Services Register (PSR).

Some of the services we provide to our Priority Services Register customers:

  • We can arrange to manage your heating account through someone you trust. We can send letters and statements to them directly. And you can give us authority to speak to them on your behalf on the telephone.
  • We can set up a password that can be used for you to identify any person working for us.
  • If you’re visually or hearing impaired we can provide support to help you manage your account.
  • If you’re having problems paying for your heating, please let us know as soon as you can. We can put you in touch with advice and support agencies.
  • If you have a vulnerability which is made worse by lack of heat, we won’t disconnect your supply between October and May. But please note that if you run out of credit, this will mean you won’t have heating and hot water. We will provide you with a temporary heater if your heating system fails.
