  • The boiler’s cost. The cost of the boiler itself can be as low or high as £400.
  • Installation cost. If you are converting a boiler system to a combi boiler, this will be more expensive.
  • The cost of the vertical flue.
  • A plume kit is required if your boiler’s flue is too close to any doors, windows or other property.
  • Upgrades to mains gas pipes The piping might not be up to date if you have an older heating system. It may be necessary to replace it.
  • Relocating your boiler. Additional charges may apply if your boiler must be moved.
  • The cost of upgrading heating control may increase.
  • Upgraded warranties – Sometimes you can choose to add an additional warranty to the one you already have. This will typically cost you more.
  • Boiler filter – You can have boiler filters installed to protect your boiler from metal and dirt particles. This will prevent leakages and other damage. You may have to pay an additional fee for this.
  • A power flush will remove any accumulated sludge from your heating system. It will stop water from flowing around the radiators properly if it isn’t removed. If your radiators don’t heat all the way to their bottom, you will know that you need a power flush.
