2 Dual Fuel Contract: This offer requires you to pay by direct debit and to sign up for paperless billing.  As our Dual Fuel contract contains a commitment period of 24 months (the “Commitment Period”), you must remain a customer of Bord Gáis Energy for the Commitment Period. If you terminate the agreement and/or change supplier for either natural gas or electricity or both before the expiry of the Commitment Period then we have the right to charge you an early exit fee. The early exit fee is €50 and will be applied to your account. We will send you a notice at least 30 days and no more than 60 days prior to the end of your Commitment Period. The BGE Standard Terms and Conditions of Electricity and Gas Supply (Fixed Term Contract) or BGE’s Dual Fuel Smart Meter Terms and Conditions apply to your Dual Fuel contract with us.

This offer is not available if you have already installed Hive in your home.

6 Eligibility Check: Bord Gáis Energy will perform a full eligibility check on your boiler and also check your home’s suitability for Hive installation on the date of the scheduled boiler service and Hive installation. If, during the eligibility check, we determine that we are not in a position to commence or continue the boiler service or that your home is incompatible with Hive,  we will notify you of the reason for this and you will be eligible for an alternative offer.

This offer is limited to one Echo Dot per customer, is subject to availability and can be withdrawn at any time. This offer is only available when a customer signs up to the 24-month Dual Fuel contract with a free Complete Boiler Care and a free Hive.
