How much will a new boiler cost me?

Because there are so many factors, there is no specific answer to the question “how much does boiler installation cost.” There are various factors involved that impact the overall cost of a new boiler, this includes: 

Type of boiler you want to install

Swapping a combi for a combi or a heat-only for a heat-only boiler is the simplest boiler installation and is most likely to be the cheapest.


In the UK, there are an increasing number of boiler manufacturers to choose from, some of which are more cost-effective than others. Depending on which manufacturer you choose, it can have a big impact on the overall cost of a new boiler. 

Boiler Model & Size

Many boiler manufacturers provide a variety of models in a range of sizes, each with its own set of prices. A heating specialist will find it much easier to install a smaller sized boiler than a huge, heavy boiler. 

Location of the boiler

It’s simple to replace an existing boiler with a new one in the same location. Moving the boiler to a new site will raise the cost because it will need rerouting the plumbing.

These are just a few factors we have mentioned that affect the cost of a new boiler, if you would like to know more information, simply get in touch with our team by viewing our contact details down below.

What are the different types of boilers available?

When it comes to boiler installation, selecting the appropriate boiler is essential. You’ll also need to think about the following factors when choosing a boiler: 

– Types of boilers 

– Boiler Size (output rating) 

– Brand, model, and range of boilers

Combi Boilers

Combi boilers provide fast heating and hot water by heating water directly from the main supply. Combi boilers have plenty of benefits, this includes the fact that they are cost-effective boilers that do not require any additional tanks or cylinders to be installed. This is ideal for those who live in small apartments.

Conventional Boilers

These are also known as heat-only boilers, and are the most traditional heating system consisting of various components and a network of pipes that connects them all. They must be installed beside a cold water storage tank, expansion vessel, and hot water cylinder. These are ideal for homes that already have this type of boiler installed.

System Boilers

There are no additional tanks needed with system boilers because they draw water straight from the mains. They do not, however, offer hot water on demand; instead, they store it in a cylinder. This implies the cylinder will take up more room but it will be able to meet the demands of hot water in a large household.
