Installing a replacement boiler is not free, but the cost of getting new one installed is worth it. There are a couple of key factors that are considered when deciding the replacement boiler cost.
These factors are; the type of boiler and what size it is, the type of property it's being fitted into and how large or small that is, how much the engineers charge for installation.
When considering these main factors, the cost of a boiler replacement can range anywhere from £600 with an added £600 at the cheaper end to £3500 with an added £1000+ for the more expensive end.
There are other factors that contribute to how much you pay, such as how complex the installation process will be, where you need a new boiler replacement to be put, and whether any other work needs to be done, such as a power flush.
