However, whether you have a combi-boiler or a gas boiler, good boiler installation is the best way to ensure it has a long life because it will be running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide hot water and heating.

Do you require a boiler installation?

If your old boiler is no longer meeting your daily needs and repair costs are mounting, it may be time to replace it. A new boiler installation provides numerous advantages, particularly if your existing system is past its prime.

New boilers have unrivalled energy efficiency, which means lower heating costs all year. That is not all. Because of their increased efficiency, they are also far more environmentally friendly.

Replacing an old system with a new boiler in London is frequently a more cost-effective option than paying for ongoing repairs. To keep costs as low as possible, many engineers recommend a replacement and new boiler installation.

combi boiler london

Combi boiler installation in London

The most popular form of boiler in London is a combi since it is the most straightforward, effective, and small. Combination boilers, or Combis, have a structure that combines all of a classic boiler’s key parts into a single unit.

They supply both heat and water, just like the Viessmann Vitodens 050-w, and are compact enough that they can be kept in a cupboard.

The most cost-effective option is a combi boiler because you just pay for the energy you use. Without the need for a tank, it can instantly and directly warm your house.

The location of the boiler, the floor you’re on, and boiler flue problems (if you need it moving or not) are all variables that affect combi boiler installation costs. However, because they have fewer elements than something like a system boiler, they are typically simpler to install. Because of this, they can be the most affordable boilers to install, especially if you reside in London.

Installations of combi boilers can be £1,840 in London.

System boiler installation in London

The opposite of a combi boiler is a system boiler. It requires more space than a combi boiler and has two independent parts, a boiler and a cylinder and if you have a city centra home in London, space is at a premium.

system boiler hot water tank london

The two parts are normally kept apart, with the water cylinder typically kept in the airing cupboard and the hot water tank typically kept in the attic.

A system boiler has advantages over the likes of a conventional boiler despite not being as efficient as a combi boiler. Unlike a system boiler, which only needs one hot tank, the latter requires a hot tank and a cool tank.

You may easily run two taps simultaneously and anticipate the same amount of hot water from each because of the large amount of hot water this tank can hold.

System boiler installations are frequently more expensive than combi boiler installations because you have to install both the water cylinder.

In all parts of London, we can quickly install system boilers.

Condensing boiler installation in London

Although condensing boilers are a distinct category of boilers in and of themselves, condensing system boilers, condensing combi boilers, and other variations are also available. Condensing boilers use 90% less energy than standard boilers because they reuse the heat from the gas they create to warm the central heating system.

In other boiler types, this heat energy escapes through the flue, which renders non-condensing boilers only 60% energy efficient. Ensure any installation company you use in London provides you with a condensing boiler!

What kind of fuel does your boiler use?

Conventional boiler installation in London

A conventional boiler – also referred to as a heat-only boiler and a regular boiler – is the oldest boiler type still commonly in use. It consists of two tanks, one for holding cold water and the other for holding hot.

The cold water tank is stored in the loft, which sends water down to the boiler when required. The heat exchanger turns this into hot water, which is then stored in the hot water cylinder.

A regular boiler is recommended for families who need hot water in several places at once. It is also amongst the easiest boiler types to replace.

Our conventional boiler installation starting price is £1,740.

Oil boiler installation in London

oil boiler london

Oil boilers work exactly the same as any other boiler, except gas is swapped for oil. Getting an oil boiler installation is recommended for those who live off the gas grid and require a reliable alternative.

The oil is stored in a tank, which is normally kept outside, and oil is fed to the boiler when hot water is needed. The oil is ignited in the combustion chamber, and the heat produced is used to heat water, which is then sent around your central heating system.

Both the boiler and the oil tank make this option a more expensive one. However, oil boilers are far more durable than other boiler types and can last over 35 years after installation.

Oil boilers in London are expensive to buy new. For example, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Heatslave II has a starting price of £2,369 and will require an OFTEC-registered installer.

Electric boiler installation London

electric boiler london

An electric boiler is another good gas alternative appliance. It is far easier to install than gas boilers, as a flue won’t be necessary. This means that the boiler installation cost may be significantly less.

Instead of using gas or other fuel, electricity is used to heat the water in the boiler. Cold water is fed directly to the heating element from the mains water supply, which the boiler can then turn into hot water.

With no gas or fuel burned or wasted, electric boilers are more energy-efficient than combis and other types of boilers.

We sell a range of different electric boilers in London that we can install. Starting from the Electric Heating Company’s Comet, priced at £695, to the Thermaflow TH 9/210U, priced at £2,300.

How Long Does It Take to Install a New Boiler?

tools for installation london

If you order a new boiler from us before noon during the winter or 2 pm during the summer, you can get next-day boiler installation anywhere in London.

There are not many boiler providers who can provide such a fast turnaround, especially in London. Our engineers will arrive at your home between 8 am – 10 am.

The length of time it takes to install the new boiler depends on the type of boiler being installed and other labour factors.

For example, to replace an existing combi boiler with another combi, you can expect labour time to be as short as 6 hours. However, if you want to relocate the position of the combi boiler, you can expect this to take up to 2 days to complete.

If you require a boiler conversion to be carried out, you can expect it to take between 1-2 days.

The most lengthy boiler replacement procedure is replacing a back boiler with a combi, which can take between 2-3 days. This takes a while because back boilers are positioned behind your fireplace, making them difficult to remove, back boilers can be a messy job.

money bag london
  • The complexity of the job – Boiler replacements are generally cheaper than boiler swaps, as all the wiring and piping will already be in place. However, if you’re swapping over from a conventional to a combi boiler, you can expect labour costs to be significantly higher. This is a result of the quantity of additional fitting or replacement work needed.
  • The boiler type – An electric boiler installation is cheaper to install than a system boiler.
  • Where to install your boiler – We charge more to move boilers because it takes a lot more time and effort to do so.
  • The number of add-ons – If you are also getting thermostats and filters fitted, you can expect to pay more.
  • The weight of the boiler – The heavier the boiler, the more you’ll have to pay in labour costs. You will probably have to pay for a two-man installation service if you have a large boiler installed.
