The cost of your boiler installation can vary from Joe Bloggs down the road and that’s because everyone’s properties and requirements are different. Below we share just a few factors that can affect the cost of your boiler installation.

Boiler Weight

Most people don’t consider how the weight of their boiler will affect installation cost. However, a heavier boiler system is often a two-person job and this can increase labour costs. While a single engineer can install boilers in residential properties, if you are looking to install a more extensive boiler system, you should expect two of our engineers to complete the installation and a higher install cost as a result.

Job Complexity

Not all boiler installations are straight forward. While some people opt for like-for-like boiler swaps, other people want their boiler installed in a new location. This often requires pipework to be changed, central heating to be reconnected, and holes to be drilled to mount the boiler. All of this takes time and the more work and materials needed to get the job done, the more it could cost.

Additional Installs

Sometimes, a boiler installation turns into a more extensive job than you expected. If your boiler installation is particularly complex, our engineers might need to remove floorboards, drill a new core hole for a flue, or remove tiles and plaster to install your boiler correctly. This can take extra time and require extra labour, which can increase the cost.

How Much Does Boiler Installation Cost?

To have one of our specialist Gas Safe Certified engineers come and install your boiler, it will cost around £1,800 - £3,500. Of course, the exact price will vary and there may be additional expenses involved should you wish to move your boiler or have more extensive work carried out. At City Warmth, we will always take the time to explain our installation process and any additional costs you can expect due to your individual requirements.

Can I Install My Own Boiler?

There’s no escaping the fact that your home needs a new boiler. However, when you start adding up the cost of installation it can be tempting to complete the work yourself. However, it is not legal to install your own boiler, unless you are Gas Safe registered.

Can I Hire a Plumber to Install My Boiler?

Plumbers carry out a variety of useful services and can certainly look after the components of your heating and hot water system. However, they cannot legally install a boiler. This is because plumbers are not typically Gas Safe Registered and this registration is a legal requirement for anyone installing boilers.
