Getting a new boiler installed is likely to cost a fair amount of money as they are such an important part of the household. However there are a number of factors which can affect boiler installation cost, and some that can help reduce it significantly.
On this page we’ve detailed a few of the factors that can affect the cost, as well as some that will help lower the overall cost of your boiler installation. We also show you how comparing our free boiler quotes is still the best way to get all the expert advice and cheap boiler costings you need for your installation.
Size of the property:
Your overall boiler installation cost is directly proportional to the size of your house, particularly if it’s a full installation. The more rooms you have to heat, the more radiators and pipe-work you will need, as well as a larger tank. You boiler will also have to be big enough to heat enough water and create enough heat to cope with demand. It’s also worth factoring in any extension plans you may have for the house, and to be sure your boiler system will be able to cope with having to heat any additional rooms. This will prevent you having to upgrade your boiler again at a later date.
If you have existing pipes and radiators in place that are suitable for use with your new boiler installation, you can save yourself a substantial amount of money. If however you need radiators, tanks and plumbing as well as your boiler you will notice the total boiler installation cost increases. Remember if you are changing fuels, you may also need a new heating infrastructure.
A part that many people forget is the additional items such as electronic timers, digital thermostats, thermostatic radiator valves, water tanks and even radiators themselves. All of these can affect your boiler installation cost so should be considered during the initial planning.

High Efficiency Boilers:
Though it might add to the overall boiler installation cost, choosing a high-efficiency A-Grade boiler should be seriously considered. You’ll find that they cost more than a standard boiler, but the savings per year on your fuel bill can more than offset that, in fact the average saving for a UK household is over £200 per month! They work by converting a far higher percentage of fuel into heat than traditional boilers (over 30% more) which translates to significant savings year after year, not to mention being better for the environment.
