Gas Boiler Repair Costs

The cost of boiler repair will vary depending on the issue - simple fixes and replacements may only set you back around £150, while more complex issues could cost £300 or more.​

MyBuilder Top Tip

You should only ever hire a Gas Safe registered engineer to carry out boiler work in your home. Anyone working on an appliance connected to a gas supply who is not registered with the scheme, formerly CORGI, is breaking the law. Ask to see a tradesperson’s Gas Safe card and check their number with the Gas Safe database.
