Emergency Contact Numbers
An energy-related emergency at your home could range from a power cut to a gas leak. Let’s look at each type so that you know which number to call if you find yourself in any of these situations.
If your electricity goes off, first check whether the same has occurred at your neighbours' homes. Knock on their doors and ask if they still have an electricity connection. If they don't, there could be a power cut. In which case you should call 105.
This number is free from most landlines and mobile phones. You'll be put through to your local Distribution Network Operator who will do its best to fix the problem.
- Unplug all electrical appliances in your home, turn the trip switch back on, and then, one by one, plug in each appliance.
- If one of them causes the trip switch to turn off again, you've found your faulty appliance that's causing a short circuit. Unplug it and don't use it. Replace it with a new one that doesn't interfere with your electrics system.
- If the trip switch doesn't turn back on, contact a local electrician to fix it.
If you smell gas at home, remember the following golden dos and don'ts:
|light a cigarette, cigarette lighter, matches or candles.||keep open all the windows and doors.|
|turn any electrical appliances on or off.||turn the gas supply off at the meter (leave it off until you are certain that it's safe to turn back on).|
To report a suspected gas leak, call the National Gas Service Emergency Line on 0800 111 999.
If you think the problem is coming from your boiler, contact E.ON on 0345 052 0000 to arrange a visit from a Gas Safe registered engineer. This professional will inspect your boiler and make sure it's operating safely.
If you've noticed that you no longer have a gas supply even though you have a prepayment meter which is in credit, call E.ON's PAYG team. The E.ON Energy contact number for this department is 0345 303 3040.
Other ways to contact E.ON
You lead a busy lifestyle, and sometimes you won't have the time to call the E.ON contact number and hold on the phone in order to get your question answered. Let's have a look at some other E.ON contact channels to help you get your query resolved.
At Selectra, we recommend using E.ON’s Facebook and Twitter channels to contact them. However, note that social media channels should only be used for general enquiries, as the response time is a lot slower compared to other E.ON contact channels. See our E.ON Reviews guide where we did a Mystery Shopper test to time how long it took us to get a reply.
With E.ON's smartphone app, you can manage your E.ON account, make payments and send meter readings for your home or business premises. It’s also a great way to find emergency E.ON Energy contact numbers. You'll need to register for an online E.ON account before you can use the app.
The E.ON app is available to download for free from the App Store and Google Play.
