Combi Boilers Prices

Combi boilers prices vary from £500 to £2800 dependent on make and model

Combi boilers prices vary hugely in price – normally from £500 to £2800 depending on brand, insurance/warranty, installation and, of course, the size/power. Combi’s are the most popular type of boiler used in the UK, mainly because they’re compact units that don’t require a cold-water tank or hot water storage cylinder to provide heating and hot water for homes.

Modern combi boilers also tend to be the most energy-efficient as they deliver a fast supply of instant hot water whenever a tap is turned on. As combi boilers can provide on-demand heating and hot water without needing any additional components, they are particularly ideal for flats and houses where space is restricted.

When it comes to choosing a combi boiler for your home, we always recommend you compare models and costs from some of the top rated and most reliable brands. Prices differ according to the manufacturer and the overall boiler quality, but there are plenty of combi boilers available to suit all budgets.

Combi Boiler Sizes and Prices

Dependent on the size of your house, combi boilers prices will differ. Selecting the right size (kW output) combi boiler for your home is extremely important. If you choose a boiler that’s too small for your property, it won’t be able to produce the right amount of heating and hot water to meet your needs. However, this does not necessarily mean that you should purchase a big boiler. When you install a combi boiler that is too big for your home, you’ll waste energy and spend more money on your fuel bills.

We have put together a guide that shows you some of the most suitable combi boiler options for the size of your home to make it easy for you to compare models, warranties and costs. Our guide is designed to give you a rough idea of the appropriate boiler output, so you’ll still need to ask a qualified heating engineer to help you work out the correct size combi boiler for you and your property.

Why You Should Consider A Combi Boiler for Your Home

Combi boilers have numerous advantages over system and heat only boilers, but a modern condensing combination boiler won’t be the best choice for every home. Two of the most common combi boiler problems are that most struggle to provide heating and hot water simultaneously or can’t deal with two showers or baths running together at the same time. Because of this, combi boilers aren’t usually recommended for rather large homes or properties with several bathrooms. But like we just said, they do have some major plus points.

Let’s take a look at why so many people across the UK have opted for an energy efficient combi for their homes.

Energy efficiency

One of the main benefits of combi boilers is that they work hard to ensure minimal energy wastage and a smaller carbon footprint. They take water directly from the mains and only heat water that you need to use each time you turn on a tap, rather than store the water in a tank or cylinder.

Instant hot water

All combi boilers are designed to provide instant hot water, so you’ll never have to wait around to enjoy a warm bath or shower. The hot water is supplied on demand, so there’s less risk of running out.

Neat and compact

Most condensing combi boilers are designed to look neat and modern to ensure they don’t look out of place in the home. They’re also quite small, and the majority of models have compact dimensions to appeal to flats and houses where space is tight.

No tanks or cylinders

Heat only boilers need a tank in the loft and a cylinder in the airing cupboard, and system boilers need just a hot water cylinder. This is where combi boilers have the edge because they don’t need any separate components at all.

Easy to install

Combi boilers are easy to install and can save you money on fitting costs because they don’t need to be installed with a separate cold water tank or hot water storage cylinder. As this also means that your engineer can spend less time installing your boiler, the work can be completed in a much quicker timeframe.

Before you start to shop around for a combi boiler, it’s best to arrange for a reputable heating engineer to survey your home and assess your requirements so that they help you select the correct boiler output (size) for your property. Now is also a good time to tell you that all gas combi boilers must be installed by Gas Safe registered engineers and oil-fired combi boilers should be fitted by OFTEC registered technicians.

Combi Boiler Installation Costs

In addition to paying for a new combi boiler, you’ll need to spend some money on the installation. The fitting cost will depend on the type of boiler you want to replace and the amount of work involved. As combi boilers don’t need to be installed with loft tanks or a hot water storage cylinder, the installation is generally quicker and cheaper.

If you already have a combi boiler and want to upgrade to a newer combi model and have it installed in the exact same spot within your home, the installation cost will be less than if you are looking to swap a system or conventional boiler for a combi. Installation takes longer when switching from a system or conventional boiler to a combi because the pipes need to be re-plumbed and the cylinder and/or cold water tank has to be removed, making the fitting cost more expensive.

Our table includes guide prices for different types of combi installations to give you a rough idea of how much it will cost you to install a new combi boiler.

You want to replace a combi boiler with a new combi boiler and have it installed in the same place as your existing unit£550 – £670
You want to replace a combi boiler with a new combi boiler and have it installed in a different location£1,400 – £1,700
You want to replace a system boiler and hot water storage cylinder with a new combi boiler£2,000 – £2,700
You want to replace a conventional boiler, cold water tank and hot water storage cylinder with a new combi boiler
