Boiler installation is often much more expensive than the cost of boilers, so it is important to factor this in, when considering it. This is a job that requires expertise, so it strongly recommended that you use an expert – ensure that the work is done by a Gas Safe installer.

What is the average cost of a boiler?

Simply put, there is no specific average. Costs depend a great deal on a number of factors: who you employ to install it can have a huge impact on the overall cost, with energy companies mostly being at the higher end of labour costs. Other factors can include: where you live, what type of boiler you’re installing – and if it needs parts, that could also increase the cost – and another major factor is the type of boiler and system you currently have installed. If it is old, this could add further cost to any new system that needs to be put in place.

Added to that, if you’re thinking about moving your heating system to another location in your property, that could also cost extra.  

How much does it cost to fit a combi boiler?

Replacing a boiler can depend on a number of factors, mainly – what type of boiler you currently have and what type of combi boiler you’d like fitted. Costs can be anywhere from £600 to £2500.

Installing a combi from a much older system can be tricky work, and could involve having to pay extra for a mechanical flush – this involves a chemical treatment for the heating system – this could set you back an extra £500.

The cost of installing a combi then, depends on your needs and the age of your existing system. The most important thing is to ensure you do some research and buy a recognisable and reliable brand of boiler.
