The cost of a new boiler:

Your boiler is a very important part of your home, especially in the colder months. Therefore, it is important that you can rely on it, to run properly and meet your heating demands. When/if your boiler does start to fail, you will need to consider arranging for a repair, or a replacement. However, sometimes the costs can be a discouraging factor.

New boilers are not particularly cheap. The price can differ depending on the brand, size and type that you choose. Prices typically range from about £500 to £2500. Nonetheless, fortunately the costs of boiler installation and replacement are normally compensated, due to the savings from your new, higher energy efficient boiler.

Installing a new boiler and replacing an old energy inefficient one, will save you considerable money on your gas bills every year. Your annual savings will depend on the efficiency of your old and new boiler. However, over your boiler’s life expectancy- (typically between 10-15 years)- the savings on your bills will outweigh the initial new boiler costs.

When to consider a new boiler installation

Frequent repairs

If your boiler keeps breaking, and you keep calling out for repairs, it may be more cost efficient to arrange for a new boiler installation. Your engineer will tend to advise when it is best to invest in a boiler replacement. You should really follow their recommendation. Otherwise, you can end up having a lot more financial and emotional burden in the long run.

Continuous pilot light

If your current boiler has a continuous pilot light, you may want to consider getting a new boiler. A continuous pilot light is the flame, which you can see burning through a little window on the front of your boiler. These tend to be a popular feature on older boilers. They are a significant waste of gas, so your gas bills should considerably decrease with a new boiler.


If your boiler is located on the floor, instead of on the wall, it is probably an older and less energy-efficient model. Again, if you are in this situation you should consider purchasing a replacement.

More money saving methods

Before arranging for a new boiler- or, even after having a new one installed, there are some things you can to further save money.

Firstly, make sure you keep up to date with your annual boiler service. This will help your engineer detect any small problems, before they become anything major. It will ensure that your boiler is efficient and running properly, so you are not spending more on energy bills than you need to.

Does your boiler do any of these things?

Sometimes your boiler might being trying to tell you that something isn’t quite right. When that happens, it’s important that you listen so here’s a few things you need to look out for when it comes to your boiler…

Is it making strange noises?

If your boiler has started to make noises then that usually means that something could be wrong and you should take the time to get a better idea of what’s going on. It can be difficult to express exactly how something sounds but there are a few sounds that we’ll try to generalise that you should keep track off.

Whistling noises tend to be cause by something known as kettling. It could also be down to trapped air somewhere inside of your system. Kettling is something that you might already be familiar with. Kettling tends to occur from a build up of limescale near the heat exchanger in a device. and if it turns out that there is a buildup of trapped air somewhere in your system and is a very simple fix for a heating engineer. Your heating engineer will also be able to tell you how the situation occurred in the first place and put things in motion so that it doesn’t happen again.

If you start to hear loud banging noises, then this may also be a sign of of kettling from within your system. If a blockage develops from within the system that limits the flow of your water can cause some of water to rise and expand and that can be the cause of the loud noises that you have been hearing.

Is it costing you money?

If you don’t keep an eye on the settings that you use then it might be that your boiler isn’t working as efficiently as possible which means that it could be costing you more money in bills than is actually necessary.

There’s a few things that you can do to make sure that isn’t happening. The first is to make sure that you keep your boiler at a reasonable temperature. It might sound elementary, but the easiest way to save money is to keep you boiler at around 19-21 degrees. From there, as tempting as it might be to turn up the heat to warm yourself up quickly, the best thing you can do is wear more layers of clothing, as your boiler won’t heat up quicker by turning up the thermostat. It will need to fire up and reach those higher temperatures which won’t get you warm quicker.

Don’t forget to make good use of a timer as this is one of the easiest ways to keep your bills down. The reason that it pays to get used to understanding how your timers work is that it means that you’ll be able to feel the benefits of the heat your boiler is creating when it really matters.

What you need to know about boiler types?

Every household is different and because if that there isn’t an overall best choice of boiler type for everyone. The most important thing to take into account is how many people in your home need to make use of hot water at any given time…

We’re great with commercial gas, working the Rotherham area!

How many boiler types are there?

There are two main boiler types that we think homeowners need to be aware of to make the best choice for their homes. These are combination (or combi) boilers and system boilers.

We can’t stress enough how important it is to make sure that you ignore price for the most part and really focus on what you actually need. We encourage homeowners to view boilers as an investment for their home since they are a huge cost so here’s a breakdown at what each type is good at.

Combi Boilers

Combi boilers are very popular choices in smaller homes across the UK and for good reason. They have the ability to heat water as and when you need it, meaning that you don’t have to wait long periods of time before you can make use of the hot water. A great example of this are those cold winter morning where the last thing you want to do is wait for your water to heat up before you can jump in the shower.

However, they are not without limitations. Combi boilers can only deliver hot water to one location in a house consistently at any time. This means that is someone upstairs wants to shower at the same time someone downstairs wants to crack on with the washing up then there may be a hot water problem. This means that combi boilers are a great choice for people that live alone or in small homes made up of 2-3 people where it less likely that people have a demand for hot water at the same time.

Conventional boilers

Conventional boilers in contact are a great choice for larger homes as they have the ability to deal with a greater demand of hot water at one time. These kind of boilers work well in homes that make use of more than one bathroom as it means everyone will be able to use the shower as and when they need to.

While that can deliver water at multiple places at one time, they do make use of a tank and cylinder and therefore take up more physical space in a home and that means that they might not be a great option for those of you out there that value your space. They also require time to heat the water that sits in the tank. This means that once you have used up all the hot water inside, you will have to wait for it to refill. A popular example for this is where one person uses all the hot water in a very long shower, leaving everyone else at a loss while they have to wait for their turn.
