how much does a boiler cost

Embarking on the journey of upgrading your boiler in the UK can feel like navigating through a maze of options and decisions. At GJS Plumbing & Heating, we understand that a new boiler represents a significant investment for any homeowner. That’s why we’re here to guide you through understanding the costs involved, ensuring you make an informed decision that suits your home and budget.

The heart of your home deserves nothing but the best, and when it comes to installing a new boiler, the average cost typically ranges between £2,500 and £3,000. This estimate not only covers the boiler itself but also the professional installation service that comes with it. However, it’s crucial to note that several factors can influence the final price tag.

Choosing the right type of boiler is paramount. Whether it’s a combi boiler, known for its compactness and convenience, a system boiler ideal for homes bustling with the activity of multiple bathrooms, or a conventional boiler that, while less common, offers its unique advantages, each type has its own cost implications.

The size of your castle plays a significant role too. A larger abode requires a more robust boiler to keep every corner cosy, affecting both the cost of the boiler and the installation. On the flip side, smaller homes might find savings with a more compact solution.

Lastly, the question of replacing an existing boiler adds another layer to the cost. If it’s simply a matter of upgrading, you’re looking at the cost of the new unit plus installation. However, if an old boiler is bowing out, remember to consider the disposal of the old guard alongside welcoming the new.

In summary, while the average cost of a new boiler in the UK hovers around £2,500, the specific needs of your home, from its size to the type of boiler and whether you’re replacing an old unit, all play a crucial role in the final investment. At GJS Plumbing & Heating, we’re committed to providing you with transparent, tailored advice, ensuring your home’s warmth is secured without any surprises.
