There are a lot of benefits associated with getting a new boiler.
However, a lot of people overlook these benefits because they are worried about the cost of a new boiler.
Let’s look at some of the most common questions we get asked before we look into more details associated with replacing your existing boiler.

New boiler costs overview
Combi boilers retail for £1,500 to £2,750. System boilers retail for £1,600 – £2,900 and regular or heat only boiler retail for £1800 – £3,200. All prices vary on manufacturer, model and any other costs such as if your installation is complex or you need to move your boiler.
Prices above include installation costs by a Gas Safe Installer.
Let’s break these down a little:
Combi boiler costs & price guide
If you are looking to replace an existing combi boiler, or change from a system, regular (heat only) or a back boiler to a combi boiler, then the cost varies quite significantly.
This is mainly down to the amount of work required by the Gas Safe registered installer/s to complete the work. However, other factors which may up the expenditure may be:
- Amount of new pipework that needs adding
- Complexity around your boiler flue
- If you need to move your boiler, how far does it need to move
- What floor the boiler is on (flats may require scaffolding)
- Location in the UK – London seems to be higher prices
- The company you choose to install your new boiler
- Warranty length
So you can see above there are many things that can affect the price of your new combi boiler.
If you are replacing a combi boiler with another combi, then that’s a straight forward job for any installer.
This usually costs around £1,800 for an above-average combi boiler with a long 10-year warranty.
The cost of your new combi, however, will increase if you are changing from another type of boiler system. Let’s take a look below at what they will set you back.
System to combi boiler conversion costs & price guide:
Many homes in the ’60s onwards will have a system boiler installed on building the property. A system boiler has 2 parts to it:
- An actual boiler
- A separate water tank to store hot water
The boiler, usually found in the kitchen in the majority of homes heats the water, which is then sent to the hot water storage tank that is usually found in an ‘airing cupboard’.
Once the demand for hot water is required for say a bath, the hot water comes out of the hot water storage tank.
This is when the boiler will fire up and start to heat water and send it to the hot water tank to keep it at a certain fill level.
System boilers are still the right choice for homes that require a higher demand for hot water, and would only typically be installed in homes with 3+ bathrooms as a minimum.
Any less than this and a combi boiler would be perfect.
So, you are probably wondering what work is required and thinking that this sounds more expensive than the first combi boiler option? Well, you are right, see below.
The headings split up the two main options:
System boiler replacement costs & price guide:
The price of a system boiler replacement is where you would replace only the boiler (not the tank).
This option is slightly more costly than a combi swap, coming in around £1,600 for a basic boiler with a low five-year warranty for example.
If you would like a mid to high-end system boiler replacement, then the price would be £1,900 to £2,900 model and manufacturer dependent.
System boiler to combi boiler costs & price guide:
Many customers who have a home with 1-4 bedrooms can easily have a combi boiler power their heating and hot water, so why would you replace and old system boiler?
What 92% of Boiler Central’s customers are doing is replacing their old system boiler and hot water tank with an all-in-one combi boiler.
Not only will the combi boiler do the same job, if not better, but it will also free up space where the old hot water tank used to be. Everyone loves extra storage space, right?
Converting a system boiler setup to a combi boiler is a bigger job and will take the installation team usually two days to finish the job.
It’s rarely one day, and it’s not often three days, so we are confident in the 2-day statement above.
As we all know, labour is one of the most expensive parts of most service type work, so the price will increase to reflect the additional work required.
As a guide, a system to combi boiler conversion is priced around £2,300 for a basic to a mid-range boiler and then for a higher-end boiler the price would be closer to £3,000.
Remember though, once it is done, it’s done, and you will never look back. It’s like going from a manual car to an automatic; no one thinks that it will be better, but 98% of people never go back to manual.
It’s the same scenario here; trust us.
Regular Heat Only Boiler costs & price guide:
A regular, or heat-only boiler, has three elements to it:
- A boiler
- A separate hot water tank (usually in an airing cupboard)
- A separate cold water tank (often in the loft)
If you have one of these, then you will certainly know about it. If you don’t, then you never go into your loft.
These systems are usually best for larger homes with 3+ bathrooms as they are built for high hot water demand. We have two main options here.
See below for prices:
Regular heat only replacement costs & price guide:
This option is if you just want to replace your boiler for your existing heat only system. The price does not include new hot or cold water tanks as in most cases you do not need to pay for a new one, they last for decades.
The price for a regular heat only replacement starts at £1,900 for a budget boiler with a low warranty, to £2,200 and above for a mid to high-end heat only boiler with a good length warranty.
If you want to change to a combi boiler, the cost is below:
Regular conversion to a combi boiler costs & price guide:
This option costs around the same as a system boiler to combi boiler as all that’s required are the extra water tank needs removing. It’s worth noting that sometimes it’s difficult to remove the cold water tank as they are mostly in the loft.
Homes back then was built around the heating system, and the access is usually far more limited than the tank, meaning we have to leave many cold water tanks decommissioned in the loft.
So, for a regular heat only boiler conversion to a combi boiler, the price is £2,300 for a basic boiler, with a low warranty, or slightly more expensive at £2,500 for a mid-range boiler and some higher-end boilers.
Now if you have a much older house than any of the above options, you might have an infamous back boiler.
The costs and options for back boilers are below.
Back boiler replacement costs & price guide:
Firstly, you can’t replace a back boiler with another back boiler.
They are illegal to install from new.
It’s perfectly fine to use an existing one, but you can not install a new one. Why would you anyway? You wouldn’t – they are expensive to run, dirty, unreliable, and a pain to keep going.
Most people who have a back boiler replace with a combi boiler and all their heating and hot water dreams come true. Most of the time we get comments such as ‘why didn’t we do this ten years ago’ etc.
Seriously, they are a different level.
So, to get a price on a back boiler, we need to figure out what work is involved.
Although many people think that it’s a tremendous job, it’s not, and most back boiler replacements can are usually installed in a single day by two installers.
They decommission the back boiler, take it out, and then you are free to do whatever you want with the new space. Most people put a gas fire there or an electric one with fancy flames.
It’s rare to change from a back boiler to a system or regular heat only. Therefore, the only price we will give you is to switch to a combi boiler. If you do require a cost for a system or regular heat only, then contact us here.
Change a back boiler to combi boiler costs & price guide:
The price to change a back boiler to a combi boiler is £3,100 for a budget boiler with a low warranty through to £3,200 and £3,500 for a mid to high range combi boiler.
Most of the additional cost is due to lots of new pipework; you need a boiler flue, a waste condensate pipe – it’s a fresh boiler install without the radiators.
Once you change from a back boiler to a combi boiler though, you will be adding value to your property, and the winters will be warm and cosy. For the investment, it’s certainly worth it.
If you get your new boiler from Boiler Central, you can spread the cost over 5 or 10 years, so the £3,100 plus for this option is manageable spread over 120 months. View your boiler finance options here.

If you have any specific questions, please let us know, and we will do our best to update this article to help others who are looking into the cost of boiler replacement.
What should you look for in a boiler replacement cost?
When getting a boiler replacement cost, you need to be sure that you are getting the right boiler for your home.
To do this, you can either get a boiler surveyor to come to your home and assess what boiler is required or (seeing as it’s 2020) you can get a cost for your boiler replacement by clicking the link here.
Boiler installation labour cost
The cost for the boiler installation is usually included in your fixed price that is quoted to you online if you choose to price your boiler up with Boiler Central.
Some companies offer boiler only installations such as Screwfix. Still, you will not get the same warranty as if the boiler and installation are carried out by a boiler company such as Boiler Central.
On average the cost to install your new boiler will be between £400 and £800 depending on the type of installation.
For example, if you have a simple combi boiler replacement, then the time to install the boiler will be much quicker and less costly than a two-day job.
These 2-day jobs are installations such as a back boiler conversion to a combi boiler, or sometimes a system boiler to combi boiler.
For 2 day installs you need labour for 2 days as apposed to 1 day as above.
Some benefits that outweigh the price of a new boiler
You will typically find that you will make your money back in terms of the efficiency savings that you will make by getting a new boiler.
A new A-Rated boiler will maybe set you back on average £2,000 (this is a very average price range and varies so much on the type of home and boiler required)
The Energy Saving Trust state that by getting a new A-Rated boiler you can save up to £340 per year.
Over ten years that will pay back the cost outlay of your new boiler.
Last year, boiler breakdowns cost the UK a vast £787 million, which is quite staggering.
However, the trouble is that people think boilers are too expensive, so they keep running them, getting them fixed and spend hundreds or thousands on repairing them.
If you get a price online with Boiler Central, you will find that boiler replacement costs can vary considerably and are much cheaper than you first thought. Check our rates online now – click here
How much does a new boiler cost in 2020?
Research shows that the highest price for a boiler in the UK was £7,764 and the lowest was £1,500.
The above shows why it is essential to search around for the best boiler prices for your home as the price varies so much.
There is also a difference for the installation costs and also the type of boiler you require, such as a combi, system or regular heat only.
This highlights why you need to search with care to find the best boiler prices.
If you are looking for a new boiler replacement, you can get a fixed online cost here.
What is a combi boiler?
Before we delve deeper into the costs, it’s firstly important to explain what a combi boiler is.
A combi boiler is a combination boiler and shouldn’t be mixed up with a conventional one.
If you need help on what a conventional boiler is then our guide on what is a traditional boiler will help.
It controls both your heating and hot water, delivering them both instantly whenever you need them.
How much do new combi boilers cost?
Combi boiler replacement costs varies from £1,500 to £2,750
The average prices above include both the cost of the unit itself, as well as the new installation costs.
There are a number of different factors at play here:
Things such as the area in which you live, the labour costs, how complicated the required installation is, and the sort and size of boiler that you need.
- If you live in London, you can expect to pay slightly more when getting your new boiler installed.
- If your requirements are complicated, then the new boiler price is going to be more expensive.
- If you opt for a premium boiler, you are going to have to pay a premium price
How much does a system boiler cost?
Regular boilers, otherwise known as system boilers, can cost anything from £1,600 to £2,900.
For those who are unaware, this type of boiler is essentially the opposite of a combi boiler.
This means that there is a separate hot water tank, which is typically in the loft, and a separate water cylinder, which is usually in the airing cupboard.
Again, there are going to be several different factors that determine the total cost of a system boiler.

Replacing a system boiler with a combi boiler cost (Conversion)
If you want to make a boiler replacement from a system boiler to a combi, this can cost anything from £2,300 to £3,000
To understand why this is more expensive than just having a boiler installed from scratch, there are a few things to consider here, and it ultimately comes down to all of the work that is required.
- The water cylinder and old boiler will need to be entirely removed.
- There also needs to be newly upgraded pipework, which is fed into the new location of the incoming boiler or existing location.
- Then, you have to have the new combi installed, and this is the simple version.
Replacing a system boiler with a combi is a big job, and it will often require around two days of work, so you can see why it is more expensive than a combi swap.
However, if you have the budget, a lot of homeowners will tell you that making the switch is the best decision they ever made long term.
Not only because they get hot water the minute they need it, but you also get significant efficiency savings as well, which means you put more money in your bank account.
Benefits of replacing your boiler
- Lower costs – You will not only save money on your energy bills, but you will also be able to reduce expenses when it comes to maintenance.
- Nobody is going to have to go to the roof to fix any boiler problems.
- Mains pressure water – Hot water will be delivered through your shower and taps at mains level power, enabling you to enjoy high power showers.
- Save space in your property – If you combine a central heating boiler and a water heater into one unit, you are going to reduce the area that is needed considerably.
What impacts the cost of a new boiler replacement?
Several different factors influence the cost of a boiler.
On the surface, it may seem like it is just the labour cost and the cost of the unit itself, however, several factors add to the price of a new boiler, and so we are going to delve into these in further detail.
The price of the boiler itself
Of course, there is only one place to begin, and this is with the price of the unit itself.
The price of a boiler differs by hundreds of pounds, if not thousands.
It all depends on the quality of the boiler, as well as the brand, kW size, and model.
The typical unit price is anywhere from £400 to £1,800, dependent on the model and manufacturer.
However, there are some much more expensive units on the market today, such as the Megaflo unvented boiler range.
The cost of labour to fit your new boiler
For a boiler swap, the cost of labour is anywhere from £600 to £800 on average, depending on the size of your home and what size boiler is required to heat your home.
The labour price is included in your total cost so don’t worry, it will not be added on top of your fixed cost.
The labour cost of conversion on average tends to be between £1,000 to £1,500, for example, a back boiler swap or conversion.
For many years, heating specialists were watched over by the official watchdog CORGI (the Council of Registered Gas Installers). The CORGI brand was synonymous with quality and safety.
If you got a CORGI engineer in to perform a new install, you knew you’d be getting quality work done.
However, CORGI wasn’t mandatory and was a voluntary registration scheme. That meant there was a whole load of heating specialists out there fitting combis who weren’t registered.
Thankfully that changed during 2009 and 2010 when the Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI.
Upgraded warranty costs
In addition to the costs, we have highlighted, extended warranties, especially ten-year warranties in most cases, are only able to be provided by trusted manufacturers and partners.
There is no denying that a more extended warranty is an expense that is worth incurring. It could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run!
New heating controls & smart thermostats: £30 – £300
Thanks to upgrades in technology in recent times, boilers can be turned on and off with ease. You do not have to walk to the boiler to make changes.
Depending on the brand and type of the controller, it is going to add different figures to the new boiler price.
The average price of this is between £30 and £300.
If you opt for a standard thermostat, these come free with most boilers so there will not be an additional cost. If you would like a smart thermostat and would like to control your home with your phone or voice then these cost more.
Most smart thermostats range from £100 to £300 dependent on the model.
Google Nest Cost: £290 (Including stand)
Honeywell T6 Lyric Cost £199
Both of the above prices for smart thermostats are available to add on as an additional extra at checkout and are not usually included in your fixed boiler price.
Boiler relocation cost: £200 – £600
You may need to move the location of your boiler for many reasons.
Relocating is going to cost more money, which is going to require several new fittings and fixtures, as well as emotional robustness, additional pipework, and a lot of physical labour.
Unless moving your boiler is vital, it is always a good idea to avoid this. If you are going down the back boiler removal and replacement route then you must now convert to a combi, regular or system boiler.
If you are moving your boiler from the kitchen to the next room then it will cost closer to £200, however if you are wanting to move the boiler from the kitchen to the loft, then this can be £400 to £600.
Upgraded gas pipe cost: Free with us!
A lot of older central heating systems are constructed using gas piping of width around 15mm.
However, for current regulations, these pipes need to be upgraded to 22 mm in most cases, sometimes costing more money.
In most cases, older pipes are from lead, and so they will need to be replaced using copper piping.
If you order your new boiler with Boiler Central, included in your fixed price is any gas pipe upgrades so there is no additional cost.
If you get a new boiler quote from another company however they may charge you several hundred pounds to upgrade your gas pipes.
Plume Kit Cost: £75 – £150
A plume kit is an extension kit that attaches to the flue of the boiler. They can be required when your boiler flue is too close for comfort to your neighbouring properties, door, or window.
Plus, it must comply with Gas Safe regulations by law.
The typical cost of a plume kit for your new combi, regular or system boiler is anywhere between £75 and £150.
With Boiler Central, your fixed price includes the plume kit cost.
Chemical flush cost: £50 – £150
You may also need to pay for a chemical flush. This can be anything from £50 to £150.
Flushes help to get rid of any existing sludge from your heating system. Sludge can prevent the hot heating water from flowing efficiently around your radiators if you do not clear it.
If your radiators are cold at the bottom, a deep clean is going to be required. There are a lot of different options when it comes to this.
However, the most common and standard option is a hot, chemical flush.
For a power flush, you can pay more than £500 with many boiler companies.
Be careful with these, as they can often do more damage than good by forcing high-pressure water through a heating system, especially if it is an old one. It can cause debris to move about that was not causing an issue before.
Then you’re left with a new boiler that’s got issues with the system because it was power flushed when it didn’t need to be.
Again, with Boiler Central, your fixed price includes a free chemical flush which will not harm your system.
Boiler flue cost: £50 – £200
A boiler flue is a big piece of pipe, that leads from the boiler to the outside .
The flue makes sure that the flue gases and condensation are pumped outside and not into your face.
Most of the time, the flue is going to leave your home horizontally, which means that there are no extra expenses.
However, flues that leave vertically through your roof demand much more work, resulting in more expenses.
The average cost for a flue is anywhere from £500 to £200, dependent on the length required and type.
A vertical flue is generally more expensive than a horizontal flue.
With every new boiler installation, you need a new boiler flue by law, and at Boiler Central, we include one included in your fixed online price.
Magnetic boiler filter cost: £100 – £200
The average cost of a magnetic boiler filter is between £100 and £200
Filters are installed inline on the pipework, helping to protect your boiler, and some companies install them included in your price.
They utilise powerful magnets that trap small particles of metal and dirt, stopping them from going into the boiler itself and causing unnecessary boiler leaks and damage.
A quality boiler installation specialist is always going to put together the full cost of a filter into your final quote.
You should not be stung with added expenses at the end. At Boiler Central, we install magnetic filters free of charge as they are included in your online fixed price.
These are the leading gas boiler brands in UK (with costs)
Below, we are going to take a look at some specific boiler makes, as well as the average gas boiler costs for these manufacturers.
Worcester Bosch boiler costs & Prices
Price ranges from: £1,800 – £3,600
If you’re looking for good reasons to select one of the Worcester Bosch range of boilers, there are quite a few to choose.
Worcester boiler installers are very experienced in extolling the virtues of their favourite type of boiler, but they’re right when they say that the boilers are excellent.

Worcester Bosch boilers are also one of the most versatile ranges on the market, with sizes that will fit all properties, including an excellent range that will fit neatly into kitchen cupboards.

The prominence of Worcester Bosch in the marketplace means you’ll find that your repairs are done swiftly and without too much waiting around for parts.
Ultimately, however, there is one aspect of buying a Worcester Bosch boiler that seems to stand out in all the reviews available across the Internet:
Worcester Bosch – The Greenstar Range
Price ranges from: £1,850 – £2,900
Worcester Bosch boilers are what a lot of people seek when the time comes to replace their old boiler replacement to power their hot water.
The two main models in the Greenstar range are the ‘i‘ and the ‘CDi‘.
The ‘i’ model is the most popular of the Greenstar boilers today and acted as the replacement for the last generation of Greenstar which got installed in over one million homes across the UK. The reason for its popularity, like its predecessor, is its simplicity.
It features smart heating controls that are simple and user-friendly.
It also has features such as a low energy pump to reduce electrical usage, and is an ‘A’ rated boiler on the energy efficiency chart.
Both of these features mean that your boiler will be using less energy and, therefore, will be saving you money on your annual gas and central heating bill.
It’s also popular in the UK thanks to being well suited to the “cold climates.”
As long as the boiler installation performs correctly, there are zero risks of pipes freezing during the winter months.
You can pick up a Greenstar I combi boiler for between £1,750 and £2,900.
The ‘CDi‘ range is similar to the ‘i’, but it is the top-performing gas combi boiler in the Greenstar range – offering the highest hot water flow of all wall-mounted boilers.
The CDi’s improved performance means that it is more suited to large homes than its fellow Greenstar models.
You can get different models of CDI boilers with prices ranging from around £1418 to £2400.
Baxi boilers costs & Prices
Price ranges from: £1,725 – £2,500
Baxi is a well-known boiler brand. The company itself has been providing heating products for 150 years. Yes, that’s right – since 1866!
They have a wide range and different types of boilers that you can purchase.
One of their current models is the Baxi Platinum combi boiler.
The Platinum comes with an incredible 10-year-warranty, demonstrating how confident Baxi is in the reliability of the Platinum range.
It has a Band A efficiency rating, which means it’s one of the most energy efficient boilers out there.
The Platinum range also features a terrific hot water flow rate, meaning that you’ll never be left feeling cold in the middle of a shower.
The top of the range Platinum boiler is the Baxi Platinum HE.
This one is an extremely popular local household favourite. It has even received a ‘Best Buy’ reward from commercial watchdog Which
Of course, the Baxi’s performance is dependent upon a good installation job, and this is going to cost money too.
However, in terms of the units themselves, prices range from around £625 for the Baxi 424 Combi Gas Boiler, which runs at 89% efficiency, to the Baxi Platinum Combi 40 Gas Boiler. Easy enough hot water output for most homes.
It comes with a ten-year warranty, 88.9% efficiency, and 40kw. If you have a large home, you may need a higher-powered boiler such as a system boiler and water cylinder.
Vokera boilers costs & Prices
Price ranges from: £1,650 – £2,200
Like many other boiler manufacturers, Vokera has a range of both system and the leading combi boilers on the market.
Most of these combi models are compact, meaning they are ideal for putting into the kitchen cupboard of a small flat.
As long as a professional combi boiler installer properly fits it, you shouldn’t see any issues for the first five to ten years of life.
Vokera’s range of combi boilers comes with a two-year guarantee from the manufacturer.

Boiler installers will give you a whole range of options when it comes to potential gas boilers that they can install.
However, there’s always a worry that they may be trying to provide you with a cheap gas boiler at a much higher price than it’s worth.
Yet there are gas boiler brands of exceptional quality to watch out for, including those from Ideal.
Ideal has been providing gas boilers for a long time and have become renowned for producing quality combi boilers.
In particular, their Logic+ range of gas boilers is considered one of the best and most popular models available on the central heating market today in the UK.
One of the reasons for this is the fact that Ideal offers a seven-year warranty on any Logic+ boiler.
This range of boiler has won numerous heating awards, including ‘Product of the Year’ titles within boiler categories. ‘Good Housekeeping’ readers and the Energy Saving Trust have also recommended it.
It’s also loved by those performing boiler installation, as this boiler is simple to install, which means that your new Logic+ can be fitted in no time at all.
The Logic+ series has other notable installation features such as built-in frost protection, a compact size (making it perfect for cupboards). They come with a range of installation options to suit different properties and size limitations.
Ideal also provides other ranges such as the Ideal Vogue, which comes with a mighty 10-year warranty.
It’s no surprise that Ideal is so famous and synonymous with quality heating.
At the lower end of the range, you have the Ideal Independent Combi boilers, which are between £1,700 and £1,780.
