Free HeatPlant - Ground source heat pump that uses renewable energy

From e-On site

HeatPlant is our ground source heat pump that uses renewable energy. This renewable energy is taken from under your garden and converted using an electricity supply to produce affordable energy for your home thats friendlier to the environment.
Its an efficient way of providing controllable heat and hot water, if your home is off the gas network.

Not only could it reduce your energy bills, but you could also have this installed by us for free.


E.ON is offering HeatPlant free if your home is off the mains gas supply and currently uses coal-fired or electric heating.

You dont have to be an E.ON customer to qualify, but you do need to be on benefits and live in your own home or privately rented accommodation. If you have HeatPlant installed, any necessary insulation will also be provided free of charge. Read on to find out how you can appl


[B]What HeatPlant can do for you[B]

More friendly to the environment
Once installed, it can help you reduce your impact on the environment by lowering your carbon dioxide emissions by up to three quarters.

Built to last
With no ongoing maintenance costs, the HeatPlant unit can last for around 20 years and the ground loop for at least 50.

Saving you money
Weve already carried out over a thousand installations, which have seen our customers pay an average of two thirds less for their heating and hot water where their home previously used coal. Take a look at the table below, which shows the average costs for other fuels as well.


Why it could be free to you
We all know how important it is to be energy efficient. Because of our Carbon Emissions Reduction Target obligations, we are able to offer HeatPlant systems free to eligible homeowners and private tenants you dont even need to be an E.ON customer.

The package usually costs around £14,000 for each household, so its a huge saving. What's more, if you have HeatPlant installed, any necessary insulation will be provided free of charge. If you dont meet all the requirements though, you dont need to miss out. You could still get up to 40% off the cost of installation.

Yes people on benefits :x

Really ****** me off that, surely if you save them money you could reduce their benefits?

no wonder people choose to stay on benefits rather than get jobs all the freebies they get, i'd be tempted too.

The conditions yo have to meet:
1. Your home should be currently heated by coal or an electric system, and
2. Your home should not be connected to mains gas, and
3. Your home should not be a solid wall property, and
4. At least one member of your household should be on a qualifying benefit.

Plus you have all the disruption of having to get your garden dug up to lay the heat pipes. Personally it looks like they've gone out of their way to make it difficult to qualify. And the amount of hassle to get it installed.
if they really wanted to reduce people's bills, they would have opted for an air sourced system (basically like an air conditioner, but works in reverse) which is much easier and cheaper to install - and probably more efficient, too.

so cold from me.

Let me be clear here... i am not on ANY benefits what so ever!!

it is just that i happen to see this offer and thought of posting it here as that is what this forum is for :-D

So if someone is thinking about the OP (i.e me) on some benefit then this is the confirmation :whistling:

Didn't assume for one minute that you were. :thumbsup: It just mogs me off that once again certain people are given handouts. Can i just add though i don't begrudge anyone that is GENUINELY on any incapacity or sickness benefit.

It is very true. If you choose to stay at home then you can get so many things reduced or free until such a point that working is simply not worth it.

That and you can get up when you want and not have a boss breathing down your neck.

Very hot if you are eligible!

£14,000 heating system for free....

excellent system. My relatives in Canada have a similar system together with solar panels on their garage, and a water filter system to reuse rain water to flush their toilets. I would rather see new builds have this sort of thing fitted from the start, rather than energy companies listing requirements such as being on benefits. Surely it makes sense to install it from the start?? Save energy AND an added selling point for a new build surely?

pah, another freebie for the lazy layabouts

benefit bashers really cheese me off.some of us would love to work but cannot.
AND dont all rush to class me as a scrounger,as one day you may be in the UNFORTUNATE position of being unable to work!!

Don't start getting on your high horse, as all of the comments that have gone before are aimed at those who cannot be bothered to get off their fat backsides and get a job, but are happy for me and all the others to pay for them, including what's in this deal,
I have the greatest sympathy for those who want to work but can't for some reason, it must be very frustrsating.
My and all the others on here only gripe is aimed at the lazy good for nothings who won't work, but continue to get benefits !!!!!

Incapacity Benefit doesn't tend to qualify for any of the assistance eg free cavity wall/loft insulation anyway - for some reason they decree that even tho people have been judged to be unable to work through health grounds (even if very long term), they don't need the help that other people get.

Great find for people who qualify

No, not more efficient.

GSHPs have a relatively constant COP (coefficient of performance) whereas airsource heatpumps have a COP that declines with air temperature. GSHPs are far more efficient at heating/cooling than air-source (since the ground is at a pretty constant temp once you get down a metre or so) and GSHPs are quieter and have a longer life than air source pumps since they are not outside exposed to the elements.

It's easy :
"At least one member of your household should be on a qualifying benefit"

So pop along to your local dole office, wait for someone who doesn't look too grubby but still desperate for somewhere nice to live and invite them to rent out one of your rooms for a bargain price for a limited duration.

Then when the thing is installed, you've got someone at home to let the installers in and out. (Assuming the installers don't arrive before about lunchtime)

After a month or so "sorry I need the room for my amateur basket weaving, can you move out please".

You win both on getting a free heating system and the rent from the lodger.

The only other thing you might have to do would be cut off your gas supply somehow. Maybe not paying the bill for a few months would get you cut off, so you could then claim your heating wasn't gas powered.



DISCLAIMER : Don't do this.


Seriously it does say other people could get up to 40% off, which if you're in the market for a new heating system is still pretty cheap. I spent nearly 7K getting British Gas to replace my old boiler. (I probably should have got a divorce lawyer instead )
