Frequently asked questions
Will this work with my type of boiler?

Heating Cost Tracker uses gas smart meter data, which requires you to have a gas boiler. We plan to extend support to cover all boilers compatible with Hive Active Heating over time. Heating Efficiency Alerts works with any type of heating system.

Will Hive Heating Plus work with my thermostat and hub?

Hive Heating Plus works with the following thermostats and hubs:

  • Hive Thermostat Mini (Model: SLT6)

  • Hive Thermostat (Model: SLT3c)

  • Hive Active Heating 2 Wireless Thermostat (Model: SLT3 / SLT3b)

  • Hive Hub 2nd Generation

  • Hive Hub 360

Hive Heating Plus will not work with:

  • Hive Active Heating 2 Wired Thermostat (Model: SLT5)

  • Hive 1 Thermostat (Model: SLT2)

  • Smart Linked Thermostat (Model: SLT1)

  • Hive Hub 1st Generation

> Check which Hive thermostat and hub you have

Will this work in my multizone setup with Hive Radiator Valves?

Heating Cost Tracker, Heating History and Schedule Assist features don’t support Hive Radiator Valves at this time but it's something we’re looking at in the future. Please send us an email to if this would be of interest.

Heating Efficiency Alerts will work in your home if you have Hive Radiator Valves.

What data do I need to provide and why?

We need to access your energy data in order to understand your energy usage and current tariff. This allows us to present your heating usage in pounds and pence and is customised to you personally. We also access your smart meter data in order to calibrate your spending forecast against your actual usage.

We use your address information to get localised weather forecasts for your home, to provide spending estimates based on your heating schedule and outside temperature.

At some point during your subscription, we may also ask you to tell us a bit about your home, e.g., building type, number of bedrooms, age or other. This information will let us further tailor specific insights and recommendations for your home.

How long does it take to calculate my forecast?

For most homes, we’ll be able to generate a forecast within seconds by linking your British Gas Smart meter account, and by using historical data from our Hive thermostat. If, however, you’re new to Hive and we have no historical data to base your forecast on, we’ll enter a learning period that takes a minimum of 30 days. During this time, we’ll learn how your home heats up and cools down and how the boiler consumes gas for space heating.

We’ll notify you of progress in the Hive app.

What's the difference between Boiler IQ and Hive Heating Plus?

Heating Efficiency Alerts uses your thermostat data to help ensure your home is warming up efficiently. When it recognises your home isn’t heating as efficiently as it normally does, it’ll help you find out why and offer some simple steps to resolve this.

Boiler IQ is a device that continuously monitors your boiler 24/7 and alerts you when your boiler fails to produce heat or hot water.

If you have both Hive Heating Plus and Boiler IQ, we’ll be managing the alerts to make sure you don’t receive duplicate alerts. If that happens, please let us know.

How can I cancel my Hive Heating Plus Subscription?

Please contact us if you want to cancel your Hive Heating Plus subscription.

When you cancel, you’ll not be charged from the start of the next period you have subscribed for (i.e., the start of the next month if you subscribe monthly. Or the start of the next 12 months if you have an annual subscription).

We can’t provide refunds for the period you have already been charged for.
