Hive Heating 2 plus full installation £149.99 instead of £249.99 Britsh Gas

Got offered this by British gas engineer today for 150, thanks OP
Had an engineer in today for a Boiler Service under the Homecare banner (got it free with a new mortgage) and dropped in the fact my thermostat was playing up, he said "you want a digital one" so I said "Like Hive?" and he proceeded to just bad mouth the last person who serviced the boiler and recommend a £250 part that might be needed in the future...

No Hive here sadly.

Switch your energy package and choose the one which comes with 'smart lights and plug kit'. You get 1 Hive Hub, 1 Hive Active Plug, 2 Hive Active Lights. For me, I pay £20 more on my fuel over a year and I get more! Sounds good?
But your not getting Hive heating controls
How about using the smart phone with the app installed on it, would it work as a control?


No, you need the heating thermostat and receiver which is wired into your boiler for it to control your heating
evohome system.

Personally I would go for a multi room solution such as an evohome kit, it allows you to control the temps of each room separately, much better cost savings and all the convenience of a modern smart system

Just spoke to British Gas...not sure if I've been fobbed off....

Bloke said to get the reduced price of £149 I would need to be a Homecare customer. HOWEVER, the deal is available ONLY IF an engineer has to attend to fix a fault with the boiler. No fault to attend to - no deal.

The only offer is Hive fully installed for £249 with £50 cashback making it £199 or upgraded for £199 with £40 cashback making it £159

​yes and no. yes on the first part and the engineer will offer you the hive just say your controls are playing up..

Just wish hive would Lower prices, very high vs others on the market

Hmm I just had a look at the phillips hue bulbs and they are pretty much the same price. I think both are expensive.
I was looking to get a phillips hue kit but just learned that I don't need one as I already have Hive 2 installed and that has a hub so simpler for me to just grab some hive bulbs.

Will hold out till black friday incase they do some kind of sale.

I received a free photobox canvas picture with the British Gas offer but was disappointed with it. I had asked for it to be wrapped round but thought they would use better judgement because the photo had two friends on it but the heads are bent over the top of the frame. Surely they could have cut off some of the bottom of the picture to fit the heads on the main frame. In any case in the original photo there was a fair bit of room over the heads so there should have been no need for the heads to be wrapped over.

Got mine delivered yesterday; very surprised at the quality, bearing in mind it was free!


Mine has now arrived and I agree. Excellent quality for a freebie. I did use a professional photo so i think that helped.

Was on radio earlier, this is 40%more than cheapest tariff, this is a total home exploiting those who are more interested in headlines rather than facts. Disgrace they are even allowed to advertise this
disgrace? bit harsh.... like the mobile monthly plans doesn't suit all and this tariff either. like I mentioned if you are away from your home during the week this is super deal

British Gas are the biggest crooks. They're the ones who started all these prices hikes and then the other crooks followed suit. Now they're giving a petty £3 quid to their customers through a Argos purchase. What a joke I say.

Dependant on which British Gas Tariff you are on of course. Those who took advantage of the British Gas Collective Fix December 2016 tariff will likely be getting a pretty good deal still.

Agreed, I took them up on the last moneysavingexpert collective switch and it was by far the most competitive at the time.

That being said I was surprised it was a BG tariff, all the rest of theirs was mind bogglingly expensive!
Nothing on God's great earth could tempt me back to BG. Worst company I have ever had to deal with, and I've been with Talk Talk.

Just what you want from an energy company - chocolate - no wonder they are losing so many customers.
We're sorry, all of the boxes of chocolates have gone. Unfortunately, we don't have enough boxes of chocolates for everyone. But we do have more giveaways coming soon - keep an eye on your inbox for our emails.
I got the email and claimed mine :-)
Had some the last time they sent the email, managed to bag a second batch today. Diabetes ahoy.
All gone - I guess they don't like people who go out to work for the day.

Off track I know but I just made a complaint against https://www.smartenergygb.org/en for using cartoon characters playing with gas and electrical appliances which may influence children in their adverts to Advertising Standards Authority, they up held the complaint and it is now to be reviewed by the ASA council

Really, come on, you'll have more radio waves coming from the WiFi in your house / Street etc.
Next you'll be telling us to where a tin foil Cape for protection like the guy off Better Call Saul.

I take it you don't have a degree in Physics? There's a world of difference between microwaves and WiFi, even more so once you put a couple of brick walls between them and you.

The problem I have, is that the pulses are only for a few seconds, but a lot more power than normal levels, the problem is no one knows how dangerous this can be, but since the suppliers are happy to quote the amount of RF, based over time rather than peak, i.e. to make it look safer than mobiles, I'm guessing they're not entirely sure about the dangers themselves.

My wifi equipment I control, can determine it's location and decide when it is switched on, a smart meter sits in your house, no ability to move it and no ability to control the amount of communication going. The companies responsible will tell you it only updates their computers every so many minutes, what they keep quiet is the whole thing has to work as a mesh network with your neighbours, so around 90+% of the communication is not your meter readings, but the protocol to keep the mesh working and potentially your neighbours data.

I've not got a problem with progress but since it barely offers an advantage over the existing system and certainly can't tell me anything I haven't already got in more detail, I really see no need for more RF signals to go through mine or my children's brains.

​I don't have a degree in Physics. Do I need to assume you do? If so, great (not an easy degree to get).
I do however have common sense. RF signals I know have a range/frequency and there's plenty of electronic devices in people's home.
Choosing a location as you say, OK, that is a point...people may not have a choice where the meter goes. I doubt it'll be in the middle of the living room or bedroom.

We could find stats and figures to prove each other's thoughts. However, with the technological age we live in, it would be very difficult to avoid the amount of RF signals. Whether you have a meter or not.

I'd also find it difficult to believe that the devices would be allowed to be placed in people's homes if they were unsafe. I mean a microwave can be really dangerous but I'm guessing 90% of the UK population have them and wonder how many have died/suffered an illness. I have one for cooking my porridge. I'm a Quaker oats champion! lol

Risk, however small is a risk as you've quite rightly mentioned. But I think we got more chance of being ran over by a car. Have a good day Mike & all the best.

Any cashback on this deal?
Have been with British Gas for years....may not have always been the cheapest but the difference is usually negligible and I gave always had a great online service with them. Have switched to their new Collective Fixed Rate Tariff which should save me approx £300 per year and they have waved any early exit fees to allow me to do this. Also be aware that if you qualify for the Warmer Homes Discount, this is not always offered by cheaper providers but they don't necessarily tell you unless you specifically ask.
Could potentially save £17 a year. Not worth the hassle and also don't trust BG.
Currently with Daligas and Robin Hood Energy, both exit fee free if better offer comes along.

^^ this.

It works it to be the cheaper current tariff for me too. But it may not be for some. Have you seen that standing charge??

I take it they only check boiler, and you have to pay extra for any repairs or replacement of parts etc?
Yes you would.
I have boiler cover with swinton £6.99 a month with £1500.00 per call out no excess.
Only covers boilers up to 15 years old.
I didn't know swinton offered boiler cover, going look into it.
Boiler now about 3 years old...so they lads who fitted it, service and test it and will replace anything if needed
Your far better putting the money you would pay for BG and the like... into a bank account
There will be enough for a NEW boiler after a few years...even after service and repairs
cburns
They were great a few years back....as above, service has gone right off... to a rip off
No longer with them.....and won't be again ;)
who are you with now? and how much do you pay?
This is not a service! It's a safety inspection.

If you get a subbie they are paid £21.50 per service, and hope to get a minimum of 10 done per day....
British Gas can't fix anything. They are specialists at just condemning boilers and trying to flog new ones. Shisters

Existing customers receive £50 free amazon voucher changing to British Gas "Fix and Reward June 2016" Tariff

41
My British Gas tariff was coming to an end and "Fix & Reward June 2016" seems a good option rather than the standard rate. After a quick chat to customer services it appears your free to change

*Think your find you can only claim the once, i done this twice a few months ago, even if its a different fix and reward it dont matter, read the *.
I have received another £50 from British Gas for signing onto their September fix and reward. I will now swap to the slightly cheaper Fix and reward January and hope for a total of £150 amazon vouchers. My direct debit for gas and electricity is £30 per month (£15 per utility - with a debit balance on my account) so for me it is a great deal.
Glad you go it mate, well done, where do you live, one bed house, with one room :), i pay direct debit £50 a month just for electricity and £60 a month just for gas :(
2 bed maisonette. Not sure why its so low. gave meter reading when I switched as well.

That's not what I was told on live chat and on the phone to the help desk. I havent received so perhaps you are right. They said 28 days delivery for voucher. I received confirmation email.

Nowadays with automation and connectivity most people leave their broadband on 27/7.
It uses very little juice and is usually plugged in somewhere discreet and awkward to easily knock on and off.
Plus when the wife's off I can check-up on her and knock the heating off like a right scrooge :)

Wouldn't you need to have your Broadband router on all day to be able to control it whenever you needed to? Or does it have some special wireless thingy built in. If you do need your BB on all day, that would surely add to your costs?


Alright grandad get back in your home

It was a genuine question sonny. And I'm sure many people turn their BB off if out for the day/weekend. Why leave it on?

"geolocation that knows when you've left and are returning home"

So five minutes for a hacker to know if your home, and how far away you are - then sell that data to thieves who break into your house!

Just how much data regarding yourself, your life, your everyday movements, becomes too much for you - cause I can see this ending in hacker data protection court based heaven for some !!!

not voting either way, but just cause it seems great, doesn't mean it doesn't have potential pitfalls and/or problems

That's a fair point I suppose, smart meters work in a similar way then, as does your modem/router. Hey and if you're cars not there and they've found out that you're heating isn't on, you're internet isn't using hardly any traffic and your smart meter says there is minimal power being used.. I'm only kidding but if we thought like that all the time we'd never leave the house or buy anything. I think its a good find, heat added. ;)

Don't have a smart metre - and when they force me to I will cover it with a shield to prevent it transmitting (not because of hacking, but because of too many items transmitting on the same channel - only so much to go round and I already have interference on other channels), don't have a car, and my router is connected to a dedicated firewall - not software on the pc - and connected to one internet only PC (my home network is separate from my internet at all times - no interaction other than hard drive swap outs), which is always on and always transmitting data - so no way of knowing if I am in using that one - as my website runs from it :)

but hey - other people aren't anywhere near as nuts as I am - I only mentioned it because of the recent trend in transmitting unsecured cameras (including baby cams !!!) - how long before this one goes the same way?
Fair point lol

Nikolaij my current combined energy bill with British Gas is £120 per month,if I stay on the same plan with British Gas my bill will go up to £135 per month but by switching to sainsburys my bill will be £96 per month so the saving is £24 on my current plan but £39 on the new plan.
Either way it's a good saving each month and well worth the switch,the cash back and gift voucher are just an added bonus.

Thank you Kobiko, if will switch to Sainsburys too

I'm sure there was also cashback via money saving expert or similar for getting British gas free insulation. The energy companies have insulation targets to meet or they get fined. I think British Gas have been already fined once for missing their target
DragonChris
Anyone know of the equivalent in NI? :(

You do not need to be on benefits or of a certain age just have permission from landlord or it is your own property. Only main limitations are you cannot have more than a certain amount of insulation already in place, 100mm I think for loft and anything in the walls. Also you can only have a maximum of a third of the loft boarded.

What are the chances of getting any help if you are not lower end income wise? I always thought you had to be on some type of benefits to receive any assistance.
I was getting this on my old house via door knocking people. I think it was energy trust people. I did reject them first saying dont waste your time, i am not on benefit then she said I still can get it because plenty providers offer free insulation with different condition. I let her in, she took measurement and detail. My house (mid terrace) already insulated on roof but she said I can get 50mm extra, making it into 300mm. A couple days later got a call confirm everything, told that npower providing it. Jobs done, a month later bloke from npower turn up to survey the work and asking if any difference noticed.
I didnt get answer for free boiler though (it was actually the one I was after).;)

I'm not into 'kicking' the disabled, disadvantaged and genuinely poor, people who are deserving of the benefits system - I'm into kicking the genuine 'Wayne & Waynetta slobs' who heavily outnumber the worthy and who are a significant drain on the decent taxpayer. Lose the chip on the shoulder dude.

I see - you are the expert when it comes to who is & who isn't worthy. Right. Got ya ;-)

So basically, the broad majority of claimants are useless slobs. Nice. Keep supporting the propaganda "dude".

The welfare system, internally, is reaching the point of critical mass - which is essentially down to government rolling out expensive schemes. They employ their buddies, private contracts etc. & keep moving the furniture about. Speak to workers within the DWP & they won't disagree with this analysis. It's big business. As is a healthcare generally speaking & we can see what's happening to the NHS. It will all end up in private hands if the PTB have their way :)

Of course their are people who take advantage, but there have always been systems in place to deal with this. It isn't as though you can just pop along to the Job Centre & ask for cash without being scrutinised. Have you ever seen the forms? Ever had to hand over your bank details? Ever had a medical? Hmm?

The corruption is systemic & the poorest & most vulnerable are "always" the target to help shift the blame & the righteous fury of the working man is channelled towards the weak whilst the richest amongst us prosper. I shouldn't need to say this.

You & your angry little friends on here should be pointing the finger at the top, at the real villains of the piece. Many millions of pounds annually laundered through fiscal paradises like Luxembourg.

This nation is falling into an abyss, it is rotten to the core & the fallout will be horrendous. We exist within an unsustainable system & we are ALL to blame through our sheepish compliance. We need radical reform from the top to the bottom. But this won't happen of course. Not a chance.

But keep on blaming dole scum, cause it's easier isn't it.

To be honest, I chose not to have children many years ago, because I wouldn't put a child in this world. It's a ridiculously high pressured environment, decent jobs are now scarce & if they do end up having to look for state support, this is what they now face, a barrage of patronising, myopic & hateful insults. No wonder parts of the younger generation choose to opt out, they look at the "adult" world & see nothing to aspire to. No glorious vision, just a grind from cradle to grave & meaningless empty materialism proliferate through all forms of mass media.

Anyway, here's to the apocalypse <3

I won't be contributing any other thoughts to this thread, it's pointless.


hear hear. I've been scrolling through this and reaffirming what I already knew and that is most people are so dense they believe all the propaganda thrown at them on a daily basis by the corrupt, corporate owned media. even the BBC has gone right wing. the rich get richer while everyone else gets poorer, blaming the poorest and never looking at the most corrupt establishment in history.

long term unemployed people is less than 3% and costs the tax payer less than a fiver each a year. bankers cost us on average 50k a head when they gambled all our money but the media has cleverly diverted peoples attention to the people that cost less than 0.0001% of what the banking system which is still screwing us. there's somebody who is left with £350 at the end of the month blaming poor people for it when they're poor themselves. the greed of the establishment and its clinger one should be your focus for hate.

these people need someone to blame and take the easiest targets because they are ignorant and brainwashed, they probably also live on a TV diet of coronation St and EastEnders.

as long as there is people like Rupert Murdoch in this world the masses will believe whatever bs he throws at them. if people knew the real truth they would riot tomorrow....

that's my very well informed comment for all the bigots who bury their heads in the sand. ignorance is not bliss and never will be.
does anybody know where l can get given working people's money for a new tv and 12 month subscription to pizza hut
Is this the New NAZI we hate people on benefits thread.
For everyone thinking "another freebie for the lazy unemployed", remember this is supposedly available for people on income up to £16,000.
Many long term unemployed will be in council houses where they won't need to claim for free boilers, etc as council maintain their property anyway.
Therefore I'd imagine this extra help will mainly be for working people on low income.
Where I live it's hard to find full time work, it's all part time which suits employers as it looks like they're employing loads of people, plus it means their employees are more flexible (due to needing more hours).
Even if you get full time hours, any wage near minimum wage will give you an annual salary much less than £16k.

Ask somebody on £12,500 if they would like to earn more than £16.000 or stay on £12,500 and get a free boiler, insulation, etc and not many will opt for crap wage with free boiler, insulation, etc.

Not sure why anyone would want to spend £180 just to save possibly having to turn a dial anti-clockwise once or twice a year.

So they can stand round the pub after work with their mates, sorry colleagues, and demonstate how 'cool' they are having the ability to remotely control their central heating boiler from their phone.

Before returning home alone, turning on Newsnight and weeping uncontrollably into a scatter cushion, questioning the very reason for their existence. :p

Worth every penny.
Being able to switch off or reduce your thermostat while you are on your holiday is worth it.
That surely must be the most stupid comment I have ever heard, pay £180 so you can turn your heating down whilst on holiday. I may be dim but I turn my heating off when I am not in the house, especially if i go on holiday.
if you returned from holiday to found that your pipes exploded (frozen) you will understand then what stupid response you supplied.
Do we have freezing weather in the summer? if you are talking about winter holidays then just turn stat down so it will fire up system when it drops below a certain temperature before going away, is that too difficult to understand?. Not sure why anyone would want to spend £180 just to save possibly having to turn a dial anti-clockwise once or twice a year.
why not even save more money and not go on holiday atall? got a boiler?! what a waste of cash..put a jumper on... chuck that fridge too, keep everything outside in the cold. chop down some trees and start a fire in the garden for all your heating needs... got a house?!?! get in the local forrest. what are we? made of money?
