warm home discount

posted by lesley1962 | 7 months ago

Hi I recieved the warm home discount,I use the same ammount of electricity all the year round,but I have gas central heating in my 1 bed bungalow,I am on the priority  list thing as I have numerous health problems one of them being COPD and orthioarthritis, I phoned to ask if I can get it put onto my gas account,as I am with scottish power on my 2 accounts         ,the woman said no they don't do that its for the electricity...So it looks like I am still stuck with just putting my central heating on for an hour in the morning , then another hour at night,surely that can't be right,I don't have an electic fire,fan heater or anything so I am still going to  freeze!

@lesley1962. You can ask SP to give you a dual fuel account, it is slightly cheaper than having separate gas and electric. Probably your new dual account will be in credit which you can use for the gas part of the bill.

@Broon35It will be on your elec account as a credit, if you generate a bill, and it may be best to look on online account as the app may not be working very good and may not update regularlysome people have reported.

Re: warm home discount

I have been advised to enquire about Warm Home Discount.  I am a widow, living on a pension, and on my own.  I have also received details from SP that my energy bills are going up by £18-£20 per month, and also mentioned that readings have been taken from my Smart meter, which I don't have.  The reason I changed to SP was because my bills have been cheaper!!!

@PKS75    You will be able to apply for winter 20/21 later this year.  The scheme for this winter has closed now, sorry.
