You might be inclined to get the cheapest boiler available. But doing that might not always be the best choice. Before you decide on a boiler, you should consider a few things. The first thing you should do is find out which kind of boiler will best suit you.

Finding the Right Boiler

To find the right kind of boiler for your house, you need to consider a few things. These will help you narrow your options. After you have found the boiler that suits your needs, you can start price comparisons of models and makes. Below are the most commonly asked questions, which you should know:

1.) Which Fuel Do You Use?

This means that you should know which burning fuel you want a boiler to use. There are a few common options like mains gas, LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), oil, or electricity. There are others. If you are not sure which one to select, it might be best to do your research. The most common fuel used for boilers is gas.

2.) Which Type of Boiler Do You Want?

There are a few different types of boilers. Combi boiler system is widely used in the UK. These sleek and compact boilers can connect with your central heating system as well. But to be sure, check which one you are currently using. A combi boiler functions as both a water heater as well as a central heating boiler.

3.) The Location of Your Boiler

You might need to consider whether you want to change the location of your boiler. This affects the installation process of your boiler and therefore the price. If you don’t want to change the location of your new boiler, it might be cheaper to install a new one. Because changing the locations of the boiler may mean a new pipework layout to redirect the flow of the water.

4.) Type of Home

The type of house or flat you live in is an important factor. It helps in determining the kind of boiler that you need. If you live in a flat, you might also need to specify on which floor. The size of your home is also a factor to consider.

5.) Number of Bedrooms

This helps determine the size of your home. The size of your home helps narrows down the size of the boiler you might need. It also helps determine the size of the central heating system. A larger house with more bedrooms means that you will need a bigger boiler.

6.) Number of Bathrooms

Your boiler will not be efficient if it cannot support the hot water you might need in the bathrooms. To determine the size of the boiler you need, you need to specify the number of bathrooms in your home.

7.) Flue Location

To find the right boiler, you might need to give details about your current boiler setup. You need to indicate where your current flue comes out. All boilers give out exhaust gases. These are bad for your health and need to be disposed of outside of your living premises. A flue is the exhaust pipe that leads all the harmful gases outside your house. This can be on the side of your house or the roof.

Do not compromise too much on quality. Cheap combi boilers are always more appealing, but good brands have a higher quality product. Those might cost you a little more but they will last longer. And you won’t have to worry about high maintenance costs.

Another factor that can affect the price is your current boiler system. If you use an old regular boiler, you might need to redirect your piping as well. But that won’t be necessary for your new boiler system.

Boiler Installation Cost

Some companies will include new boiler installation costs as part of the sale price. However, most companies will not. That is because boiler installation costs can sometimes go above £2000. The cost of installing a boiler can vary depending on several factors:

1.) Your boiler system

If you replace a regular boiler system with a new condensation combi boiler, your installation costs could be higher. That is because regular boiler systems work differently and have different fixtures, fitting, and equipment. The proper installation process will involve a lot of work and may take up to three days. The hot water cylinder would have to be removed. That is easy as compared to all the work done after removing the cylinder. The second stage of the installation process is re-directing the hot water pipes to the new boiler system. Depending on the layout and access of your piping, this may take up most of the time and labour. Some estimates for this kind of installation can reach higher than £2700.

Also, combi boilers take their water supply directly from the mains. This means there is bound to be more water pressure in your pipework. Older pipework may not be able to handle the stress from increased boiler pressure. In many cases, if you don’t replace the pipework, it could burst and damage your home.

2.) Location of the boiler

Boiler location is important. These are usually big, bulky appliances and require a lot of space. So sometimes, it is important to relocate the boiler to a new part of the house. Though that will open up a lot of free space for you, it might not be cheap. Some relocation quotes are higher than £2600. And the installation process can take as long as two days. That is because all the pipework needs to be redirected to the new location. Combi boilers are popular because they are sleek and compact, able to fit almost anywhere without getting in the way. They are also cheaper to install than other boiler systems.

3.) System Cleanse and Filters

In addition to boiler installation cost, you may also have to bear the cost of a system cleanse. It is recommended that you give your boiler pipework and central heating system a thorough cleaning. After the installation professional has performed a system cleanse they will usually ask if you want them to install a filter as well. It is usually recommended that you do so. Filters can help keep your boiler, pipes, and central heating system gunk-free. The system cleanses and filter can add £100 to £200 to your combi boiler installation costs.

How Can You Save Money?

The total costs of a new boiler and the additional installation costs can add up to a lot. Sometimes, even with discounts and special promotions, gas boiler prices can exceed your budget. There are things you could do to lower your new boiler costs. Or even get them free.

It is also important to remember to compare boiler prices. Don’t just finalise from the first quote you take. Shop around for the best deals. It might take some time but it can save you a lot of money. Some suppliers might also have a special promotion or discount that you qualify for.  Here are some alternatives you can consider:

Getting a Boiler Cover: You might not know this but getting a boiler cover can help you get a new boiler as well. There are numerous boiler cover providers in the UK. Some of them often release new promotions and schemes to attract customers. Some of them even offer boiler replacements to new customers. All you have to do is pay for your boiler cover plan. Moreover, you can get a free new boiler installed in your house. These schemes are appealing as you get new boilers for the nominal price of boiler breakdown covers.

Government Schemes: If you search for it, you might be able to find a government scheme or grant that you qualify for. Like the recently shut down boiler scrappage scheme. The scrappage scheme worked in a similar way to the government’s car scrappage scheme. You were eligible to get a discount of up to £400 towards a new boiler. Though the scheme is no longer available, there are others you might be eligible for, like, the Eco scheme. Check to see if you are eligible for any benefits to help with the costs of a new

A-rated boiler: New boiler prices can be high, especially when you include the installation costs as well. Unfortunately, boilers are not appliances that we can live without. No matter how expensive they are, you will not be able to bear the cold weather without them. Luckily, some companies offer special discounts that you can benefit from. In addition, if you get a boiler cover, your provider will also offer a new boiler as part of the deal. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about the cost of the new boiler or its maintenance and repairs.
