How much does boiler replacement cost?
We all rely on our boilers to heat our homes and keep the hot water flowing, so when we find out that there’s no other option but to replace a broken boiler, it can feel like a real blow. If you’re facing the prospect of replacing a boiler that’s failed or simply too old or inefficient to keep running, this guide will let you know the kind of costs you can expect.
Gas Boiler replacement costs
The average price of a traditional boiler, plus installation, is around £1,500 to £1,800. They can be bought from a variety of places, with the cost of installation typically included. Gas engineers will usually quote for the job as a whole without separating out a fee for removing the old boiler, so prices are similar to the cost of simply installing a new boiler.
