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 this work in my multizone setup with Hive Radiator Valves?

Heating Cost Tracker and Heating History 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 but will not work if you have a multizone heating setup.

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 generate a forecast within seconds after we’ve linked to your energy account but it can take up to 24 hours.

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 much does Hive Heating Plus cost?

Hive Heating Plus costs £3.99 per month. You can pay on a rolling monthly contract with no minimum commitment. For customers who are new to Hive Heating Plus, you can try the service for free for one month. After this free trial, a payment of £3.99 will then be taken at the beginning of each subsequent month.

How can I cancel my 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).
