Buying a new central heating boiler can certainly be an extravagant thing, but installation can be more than that. Contemporary central heating boiler is infamously costly due to how advanced the electronic products are inside.

Although on the other hand, they can certainly help you save money by being more power efficient as compared to older A-Grade central heating boilers, the initial cost of any boiler installation can be very important.

With any installation work, there are however several different factors which can both save you money and add the expense to the overall cost, and we've listed some of the main points below.

What affects boiler installation cost?

Of all the factors that will affect the overall cost, these are the three that we find are both the most influential, and often the most overlooked:

Property Size

This will have a direct correlation to the price of the install. Larger homes mean more areas to heat, so this means you need more heaters to install with a greater capacity to fit.

Even if you have the necessary infrastructure/pipework in place, you'll still be looking at more expensive and bigger boilers to install. An often-overlooked factor is the potential of extending the property. If you have any plans to extend the property in the future, it's well worth installing a boiler that will be able to cope with the added size and heating requirements of the additional rooms.

Any existing boiler infrastructure

Have you got heaters and pipework in place which are ideal for your new central heating boiler? If that's the case, it may cut down the overall installation cost considerably.

As they will still need to be power-flushed before a new boiler fitted, if not, you will need a complete plumbing installation including all pipework, radiators and any additional items such as water tanks.

Type of boiler chosen

It may seem an obvious point, but the choice of boiler will have a direct impact on the overall cost of the project. Fuel type will mean different boilers at varying prices, so whether you're using oil or gas, for instance, the boiler cost will differ. If you are using gas for boilers, you can easily make a firm decision on a high-efficiency Grade-A central heating boiler, which however higher in price on your initial investment, this will certainly save you a lot of cash each and every year on the fuel bills.

What are the Best Boilers?

Well, this is a difficult question to answer but asked a lot so I will do my best to answer. Corgi HomeHeat boilers are probably the best known and trusted boilers on the market.

Getting one of these is an excellent choice as they are very reliable and trusted. Due to quality and reliability, then you have to be prepared to pay more. It's a bit like getting a BMW or Mercedes car, if you want the best then you have to pay the best prices.
