How much does a new boiler cost?

The cost of installing a new boiler can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of boiler, the size of the boiler, the complexity of the installation, and the location of the installation. Here is a rough guide to the cost of Synergy Heat installing your new boiler.

Combi boiler installation

The cost of installing a new combi boiler typically ranges from as little as around £20 to £50 per month or £1,500 to £3,600, if you’d prefer to pay for the work in one payment. This estimate depends on how many months you choose to spread your payments over and the size and complexity of the installation. This includes the cost of the boiler itself, as well as the cost of installation.

If you opt for a mid-range new boiler, have us install it in the same place as your existing combi boiler and if few pipework alternations are required, the price will likely be closer to £1,500 to £2,000 or around £20 to £30 per month for the longest monthly payment plans.

On the other hand, if we install your new top-of-the-range new boiler, such as a Worcester Bosch or Vaillant, in the same place as your existing combi boiler, the price is probably going to fall somewhere between £2,300 and £2,800, or £30 to £40 per month over 120 monthly payments. This is due to the increased cost of the boiler itself.

If you currently have a boiler and a separate hot water cylinder and would like to replace both with a combi boiler, then this will add a day’s labour for two engineers, as well as additional pipe and fittings, to the cost of the work. Therefore, the cost of installing your new combi boiler in this case is likely to range from £2,300 to £3,600, or £30 to £50 per month.

Likewise, the cost of installing your new combi boiler is likely to range from £2,300 to £3,600, or £30 to £50 per month, if you choose to have your new boiler installed in a different place to your existing boiler or cylinder.

System boiler installation

If you currently have a separate boiler and hot water cylinder and would like to keep it, we can replace your existing boiler with a new one. Similarly, if you would like to have both a new system boiler and hot water cylinder installed at the same time, we can carry this work out for you.

The cost of installing a new system boiler typically starts from around £20 per month or £1,600 for one payment for a straightforward boiler swap. This estimate is based on us installing a mid-range boiler in the same place as your existing boiler with few pipework alterations being required.

If you’d like to replace your existing system boiler with a new mid-range boiler in a new location, the cost of the work is likely to start from around £30 per month £2,400, due to the extra labour and pipework that will be required.

On the other hand, you can add an extra £800, or around £10 per month, to these prices to cover the extra cost if you choose to have a top-of-the-range boiler installed.

For the supply and installation of a new mid-range system boiler and cylinder at the same time the cost of the work could start at around £3,900. This price could go up to £4,700 if you opt for a top-of-the-range boiler and cylinder.

These prices depend on the size and complexity of the installation. They include the cost of the boiler itself, as well as the cost of installation.

Summary

It’s important to note that these are only rough estimates and that the actual cost of installing a new boiler can vary depending on your specific requirements and circumstances. In some circumstances, the cost of the work could be higher than these estimates. Additionally, these estimated prices are based on material and labour costs in April 2023. With the current inflation rate around 10%, these prices are likely to increase in the months and years ahead. Therefore, we recommend having your new boiler installed sooner rather than later to take advantage of these lower prices.
