How much do new combi boilers cost?

A new combi boiler installation can cost from £1500-£4500, depending on the type of your current boiler, what new boiler you require, the warranty length and how complex it is to install.

  • Premium Boilers = Higher Price
  • Complex Installation = Higher Price

A straight forward job, you would be looking at the lower end of the scale. If it is a more complex job, then expect to pay something towards towards the higher end. We have developed a brand new quoting system that can work this out in less than 30 seconds!!! To find out more, Click Here.


Combi - Combi Boiler Swap

A combi boiler swap is the most straight forward boiler install. They are pretty straight forward as all the pipe work is already in place. The only thing to ensure is, the current gas pipe is adequate for the new boiler and there is drain/waste close by for the condense pipe, if the current boiler is not already condensing.

Our average combi - combi boiler swap is £1900. Click Here to get your FREE Fixed price boiler installation in less than 30 seconds


Conventional - Combi Boiler Swap

Upgrading from a conventional system, including tanks & cylinder, to a combi boiler can be more complex. The old boiler, tanks & cylinder will be removed and the pipe work converted to suit a new combi boiler. A conventional - combi boiler swap are quite labour intensive, compared to a combi-combi boiler swap. They require more materials, more labour and more flushing, so all this adds up to a higher cost.

Our average conventional - combi boiler swap is £3500.


Back Boiler - Combi Boiler Swap

The work involved in the conversion from a back boiler - combi boiler is pretty similar to a conventional - combi swap. There is more work involved when taking out a back boiler. Your fire and back boiler will need to be removed during the installation. There tends to be slightly more pipe work alteration and labour involved in a back boiler conversion, although this is not always the case.

Our average back boiler - combi swap is £3800

Who should I use to fit my new boiler?

Having a new boiler installed is not cheap. This is why you need to research it thoroughly before buying one. You may look at your energy supplier first, like British Gas for your new boiler quote. Traditionally, you pay a premium to have these under take your new boiler installation, and a majority of the time it is fitted by a sub-contractor. You may look at a local boiler installation company, like us, to fit your new boiler. A local company can sometimes offer you a better deal, you may get extended guarantee's on the boiler (if the company you instruct is accredited to a boiler manufacturer). The big utility companies will try to tie you in to a service contract, so more on going costs for you.
