Costs of Having a New Boiler Installed – Things to Consider

Posted on April 12, 2019

Boilers become less efficient and often unreliable as they age, meaning expensive engineer call-outs and increasing fuel bills, so having a replacement boiler fitted might be the only option.

There are many factors to take into consideration when buying a new boiler: What type do you need? Which brand to go for? How much does a new boiler cost, as well as the installation? It is possible to source a new boiler yourself directly from the manufacturer and then find an engineer to fit it. However, the option we recommend would be:

The cost of a new gas boiler depends on the brand, type, size and type of fuel needed to heat your home and provide enough hot water.

Combi Boiler Prices

Combi (or combination) boilers are the most popular type of boiler, suitable for smaller accommodations where no more than one shower would be running at the same time; they are also easy to use and quick to install. Combi boilers combine a high-efficiency water heater and central heating boiler in one small unit, with no need for a hot water tank, saving space and keeping costs down. They come in a range of sizes. The cost of having one installed will be influenced by:

  • size of the boiler
  • whether radiators need replacing
  • the length of the flue to vent waste gases
  • if you need to remove a hot water cylinder or water tank from the loft
  • if the replacement boiler needs moving to a different area

Modern condensing combi boilers convert at least 90% of fuel into heat, meaning that they are very efficient so will save you money on fuel bills. This could be as much as £350 a year if your old boiler was a ‘G rated’ one.
