Installing a new boiler could be expensive. The price varies depending on the company that you choose to do the job. Therefore, you need to know first if you are getting qualified boiler engineers to do the job.
To begin with, you need to find a high-quality boiler before installation. It is important that you find a modern device that is energy efficient. Once you have chosen the best boiler, you can now search for people to install it.
The amount for the installation service varies depending on the amount of work required, the parts needed and their availability. Your location relative to the person doing the job will also affect the cost. Replacing an old boiler also requires the removal of the old model. You need to work with someone who knows how to deal with the old model and not just the installation of the new one. If the system is very old and it has to be replaced, you can expect to pay around £540 to £660. This is usually because there is a need to do a mechanical flush.
Once the old one is removed, they will add chemicals, clean the pipes using an external pump and prepare the same area for the installation of the new boiler. This is why it is quite expensive. Changing from one type of boiler to a totally different one will also cost you more. For instance, if the pipes need to be moved around because of the size, you would have to spend around £200 to £300 more. For more complex plumbing work involved, the amount could go well over a thousand pounds.
It is tough finding the best person to deal with boiler installation. This is also a reason why you might prefer to just stick to the same company where you bought the boiler to provide installation services. This might be an additional cost on top of the boiler, but it is fine. You would still need to spend money for a boiler installation service from a third-party source anyway.
Nevertheless, if you decide to ask someone else to do it, make sure that the person is qualified to do the job. Ask for certification if possible. You can also ask the expert to come over and assess the place. You will then be informed of the amount that you need to prepare to complete the job. You can decide after being given the quotation if it is worth it or not. At this point, you are not yet required to pay.
In the end, whatever your decision may be, just choose what is best and the cost should not necessarily be the main factor.
