Help & FAQ

What is Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG)?

Your system is set up as Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG), so you only pay for what you use, plus an availability charge. This is the simplest and most efficient way of managing how much you spend on heating. It works in a similar way to an Oyster card.

You simply need to buy credit for your PAYG in order to provide heating and hot water.

We have designed our PAYG facilities with your convenience in mind. Paying for your heating is easy, flexible and transparent, and your Smart Meter help you monitor your usage and control exactly what you spend.

You can check your account at any time by logging into your online account or giving us a call. You will also receive an annual statement. You can find out you how much energy you are using, how much it costs and even how much CO2 is being added to the atmosphere.

You should try to keep your smart meter in credit to avoid any temporary suspension to your heating/hot water supply.

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.
