How is a boiler quote worked out?
To work out a new boiler quote, boiler installation companies need to know certain things about your current boiler, your home, and exactly what work you require.
With any new boiler replacement, you need to make sure that you get the right boiler, the right output, and the right dimensions. Here is a list of things that are taken into account to work the boiler replacement cost:
Type of gas boiler quote
The type of boiler you currently have will make a difference in your boiler quote in 2 ways. If you have a combi boiler and want a new combi boiler quote, then your overall gas boiler replacement cost will be much lower than if you have a system boiler and want to change to a combi boiler.
This is called a system boiler to combi boiler conversion quote.
Boiler conversion quotes
If you are wanting to change your gas boiler type, expect your replacement boiler quote online to be much higher. You can also get fixed price back boiler replacement quotes and regular or conventional boiler quotes.
Converting a back boiler or conventional boiler to a combi boiler quote will be much higher than a simple new boiler replacement.
Hot water demand
Hot water demand is arguably the most important factor in choosing the right new boiler for your home. This is because the higher the hot water demand, the higher output replacement boiler you will need.
If you have really high hot water demand then you may need a system boiler quote instead of a combi boiler quote.
How big is your home?
The size of your home will affect your new boiler quote as the larger your home is, the more radiators you have, therefore you will need a more powerful boiler. Like anything that is bigger and more powerful, the boiler cost will be higher.
How many bathrooms or shower rooms do you have?
New boilers are gradually becoming better at what they do as technology improves, but combi boilers will struggle if you have more than 2 bathrooms. This is because they can’t provide enough water to two outlets at the same time.
This is where you may need to get a gas system boiler quote if you have 2 or more bathrooms, s the hot water tank enables you to use multiple outlets at the same time without a drop in water pressure.
Moving boiler quotes
One option people may choose to do is move their boiler. Therefore you will need to get moving boiler quotes. if you don’t like where your old boiler is and want to put your new boiler in a different place then you can but at a price.
here is a list of how much more your boiler quotes will be if you choose to move your boiler:
- Moving a boiler in the same room – £200
- Moving a boiler to the next room – £300
- Moving a boiler upstairs or to a garage – £400
All these extra moving boiler costs will include the labour and the cost of extra copper pipework and fittings.
Type of boiler flue required can affect your quote
The boiler flue is just as important as your boiler as it gets rid of any waste gasses out of your home. The type of boiler you require can affect your boiler quotes.
There are two types of boiler flue, horizontal and vertical. If you have a horizontal flue that comes out of the side of your home, then your quote will be less. Whereas if you require a vertical flue, you can expect your final boiler price to be around £150 higher.
Compare boiler quotes for the best deals
Everyone knows that to get the best price on anything you need to shop around. New boilers are no different. The best thing about getting a new boiler online is that you can compare quotes all in one place to get the best boiler deals.
You also get the best boiler brands too as any boiler quote online will give you quotes on boilers from Worcester bosch, Viessmann, Ideal, Baxi, Vaillant, and more.
Fixed price boiler installation quotes
When gas boiler installation companies say fixed price quotes they really do mean it.
It is all part of their guarantee to offer you a brand new boiler with a price online so that you know exactly what you are getting and how much you are paying right there and then.
Even if the gas boiler installation turns out to cost more than initially thought, they will honour their new boiler quote.
Combi boiler quotes – the most popular boiler installed
Combi boiler quotes are the most popular in the UK. These are the type of boiler that is just a single unit that can fit in a kitchen cupboard, that provides you with instant hot water as and when you need it.
If you require a combi boiler quote then ensure that when using an online boiler quote calculator you say that you either have a gas combi boiler and want to replace it, or you have a boiler with a tank and want to change to a combi boiler.
System boiler quotes – boilers with a hot water cylinder
If you want a system boiler quote as you have a hot water cylinder, then simply replacing your old system boiler with a new one is easily one of the best options.
This is the way to keep your boiler quote prices down rather than changing boiler type.
System boiler replacement quotes do not include a hot water tank, so ensure that you do have a hot water tank already unless you are happy to have one installed.
If you need a hot water tank installed then this will be an extra cost and you may need to speak to an expert on the phone.
Regular heat only boiler quotes
Heat-only boilers are becoming less and less common, but you can still get great new boiler deals on heat-only boiler quotes. heat only or conventional boilers require both a hot water tank and cold water tank to work.
They lend themselves better to older properties and do have their place. If you have a regular boiler, you could get a system boiler conversion quote and get rid of your hot water tank in the loft. This quote will be higher but it will create space and maybe be more energy-efficient.
Back boiler replacement quotes online
Back boiler replacement is one of the most expensive types of boiler installation in the UK as you have to convert to a different type of new boiler and move the location of it.
Therefore expect boiler quotes in the region of £3,000. That being said, because back boilers are so inefficient, you could be saving over £365 per year on your energy bills.
With the energy price increase looming on the 1st of April, you could double these savings too.

Once you have chosen your boiler replacement, you have a few options on how you can pay for your boiler.

If you think that the average new boiler quotes are around £2,000 then this is a considerable amount of money.
Many people would not have £2,000 spare, therefore this is where you can get some of the best boilers on finance from leading manufacturers.
