There are many factors involved when it comes to figuring out the cost of a new boiler, so let’s take a look at this in more detail
What type of boiler do you want?
The three main types of boiler are combi, conventional and system. These all have different prices and pros and cons; for example, a combi boiler might be more expensive to buy but has fewer components, so there are less things that can go wrong.
The flip side of this is a conventional boiler, which is usually cheaper to buy but has many parts that can go wrong. The parts are not necessarily expensive, but you will need to factor in labour costs; what’s more, manufacturers often discontinue parts after a certain period of time. This means that once the boiler starts to get old, the replacement components may not be available and you may have to purchase a new boiler instead.
How much do you want to pay?
With most things in life, you get what you pay for. Some manufacturers are a lot cheaper than others; however, the more expensive ones may have a better track record when it comes to things such as customer service and sales support. The smartest decision is often to go for the middle ground.
It is illegal for anyone not listed on the Gas Safe Register to install a new boiler. Don’t be tempted to have a go yourself to save money, as this could have serious consequences. There are many tradesmen around who are registered and they are easy to find; for example, Google ‘boiler installation Cheltenham’ to find a list of available experts in this area. In no time at all, you could get a boiler installed in Cheltenham or any other location.
Different companies may charge different prices. Large companies sometimes charge more money than sole traders, for example, but it may be that they have more boiler fitter in your area and the job may be completed quicker.
There is no correct answer to the question of how much new boilers cost, as it depends on your requirements. Once you have chosen a boiler installer to use, they can offer you advice as to which type of boiler would best suit your needs.
