How much does a new boiler cost in 2021?
When it’s time to replace your old, beaten down, inefficient boiler, you’re going to want to know how much it’s going to cost. Obviously, from a quick google search, you can determine the cost of the actual boiler, however, all the extra costs can sometimes be shrouded.
Let’s get into it so you can acquire all the necessary information before making a big decision.
There are many different factors that can change the cost of a new boiler. For example, it can cost more if you’re replacing a traditional boiler with a new combi one. This is due to the additional work carried out to ensure your current system can accommodate the change.
If your current system fails to meet gas safety regulations then you will need a heating engineer to fix the issues before the installation can begin. The extra time and cost will certainly add to the overall price.
Systems that haven’t been cleaned in a while will need some TLC. Thus, requiring chemical flushing to be carried out. All sludge, dirt, rust, and other parts will be removed from the pipes allowing for a more effective heating system.
What you will save in the long-run
New boilers must meet the mandatory 88% energy efficiency level to be installed. Older boilers are typically around 65% energy efficient. Therefore, the amount you will save on electricity will certainly add up over the years. Especially as you won’t need to use the new system any less to still receive huge monthly savings.
Combi Boiler Installation Costs – The costs for installing a brand new combi boiler can range anywhere between £1,500 to £4,000! The extent of the cost is dependent on the following factors:
- How easy installation will be to complete
Getting the latest high-quality combi boiler unfortunately will not be the cheapest, however, you can ensure you will have peace of mind with your new boiler not breaking down and leaving you freezing cold.
With a range of different combi boilers on the market today, it can be hard to decide which one would be the best for you. We recommend the Viessmann Vitodens 100-w. With a 10-year warranty, especially quiet boiler noise, and an ‘A’ energy efficiency rating, this is the perfect boiler for heating any home in Southampton.
Regular Boiler Replacement Installation Cost – Replacing a regular boiler for a new regular boiler range from costing £1,000 to £3,000.
The extent of the cost depends on the amount of pumps and pipework needed to operate the current boiler, the length of the warranty, the manufacturer of the boiler, and how complicated the installation may be (if you need to change the location of the new boiler, this may add extra costs on top).
Regular Boiler to Combi Boiler Installation – If you are looking to change from a regular boiler to a new combi boiler, the costs will range from £2,000 to £5,000.
Due to the intricacies of changing to a combi, from updating the current pipework, to the removal of the water cylinder, the prices will be higher than other boiler installations listed above. However, upgrading to a combi boiler is a great idea if you want to improve the reliability of your boiler and speed up how quickly the heating turns on.
