Top 5 Factors that Determine the Final Cost of Replacing a Boiler
1. The actual boiler
Depending on the model, brand, quality, and kW size, you can find models that cost no more than several hundred pounds all the way up to high-end, expensive ones.
2. Installation costs
Companies that carry out the installation typically charge between £600 and £1,500. The price depends on the type of boiler (combi swaps are simple and quick to install, which is not the case with back boiler conversions), the place where it is going to be installed, and the number of engineers that will be working on the project.
3. Relocation costs
Moving a boiler involves extra costs of additional pipework, fittings, fixtures and physical labour. If you are tight on budget or moving a boiler is not of crucial importance, we recommend avoiding it.
4. Radiator costs
Radiators are prone to wear and tear and tend to lose some of their efficiency over time. When installing a new boiler, have an engineer inspect your overall heating system. Depending on the number of radiators, size, design, and material, new radiators can cost between £100 and £150 each.
5. Extended warranty
If you want peace of mind for the next decade or more, investing in an extended warranty would be a smart move. Boiler manufacturers and trusted partners such as Your Heat can provide you with longer warranties.
Installing a new boiler can cost you between £1,000 and £6,000. This price includes, in most cases, a fixed boiler price, labour, full parts, and warranty. Your Heat can offer a wide range of reasonably priced boilers all the way up to premium models. If you would like to discuss boiler installation costs further, submit a quote or contact us via e-mail.
