When it comes to having a new boiler installed, the associated costs can vary massively depending on several factors. These factors can include:

The boiler type– Heat only, system or combination (combi). Will the
system be converting i.e. heat only-combi? If this is the case, then you can expect the cost of the installation to increase due to the level of work involved. How do I know what type of boiler I have?
Combination boiler (combi), heats water as you need it, eliminating the need for a storage tank.

Heat only boiler– Also known as a conventional boiler, you will have a
hot water tank or cylinder where hot water can be stored for later use.
System boiler- Similar to a heat only boiler however more components are built in therefor they are easier to install and tend to take up less space.

The make & model– Certain boiler makes/models can be more expensive than others due to the internal components and the technology used by the manufacturer. Some models also come with extended warranty periods which will increase the expected cost of the boiler.

Boiler location– Are you wanting to move your boiler?

Added extras– e.g smart controls, filters or a
system cleanse.

The installation cost can also vary depending on the amount of work required to fit the boiler. What do we mean by this? Well, things like altering the pipework or in some circumstances a roofer may be required if you have a vertical flue (one that comes up and out of the roof). Each of these factors can increase the expected costs. Another factor to consider is your budget. Depending on your budget, you may wish to pay for your boiler installation upfront or, you may decide to spread the cost with monthly re-payments.

The final factor that can determine the cost of your new boiler, and the most important, is the company that you choose to carry out the installation. The price difference between a sole trader, small business or a national company can vary drastically and you will no doubt be able to identify pros and cons for each. That is why taking the time to research a company is so important as you want to find the one that is the best fit for you!

reviews. Do they have a high number of reviews? Are they generally positive? What are their customers are saying?
