The factors which affect the price of a boiler


Many factors contribute to the price you will pay to get a new boiler installed. Some of these factors are; the type and size of the boiler, boiler relocation, the state of the existing pipework, etc.

Boiler types


If you’re unsure what type of boiler you have, here’s a quick overview; 


Combi Boiler – The most popular boiler type in the UK. You can identify a combi boiler as it is not connected to a hot water storage tank (airing cupboard) or a cold water storage tank (usually found in the attic or loft).

A combi boiler works by heating water directly from the mains supply, this means that you don’t waste energy by heating water that you may or may not use.


System Boiler – A system boiler has a hot water storage tank but doesn’t have a cold water storage tank. They are usually found in older houses or houses with more than one bathroom as they can supply hot water simultaneously to multiple bathrooms as it’s stored in the hot water tank.


Regular Boiler – Regular boilers have both a hot water cylinder (usually in the airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank in the attic/loft. Like system boilers, they can cater for multiple bathrooms using hot water simultaneously but they do take up a lot of storage space with tanks. Standard boilers are sometimes referred to as traditional, standard, open vent, or heat only boilers.


Back Boiler (BBU) – Back boiler units are located behind an electric gas fire. As is the case with a regular boiler, they will usually have a hot water storage tank and a cold water storage tank. Back boilers are becoming less and less common as they are less efficient than modern combi boilers and they are no longer installed.

Boiler size


Generally speaking, these are the right combi boiler sizes for your home: 

  • 24 – 27 kW Combi – Suitable for most flats, apartments, and smaller houses with up to 10 radiators and 1 bathroom.
  • 28 – 34 kW Combi – Suitable for 3-4 bed houses with up to 15 radiators and 2 bathrooms.
  • 35+ kW Combi – Suitable for large houses with up to 20 radiators and 3 bathrooms.

This is not something you’ll need to worry about when getting a boiler quote from WarmZilla, as we will automatically suggest the right boiler size based on your survey answers. 

As you can imagine, the higher the kW, the more expensive the boiler would be (on a like-for-like model).

Is it time to replace my boiler?

Your boiler could last 10-15 years, or even longer – depending on how well maintained it is.

If your boiler stops working entirely and can’t be fixed, you’ll have to replace it immediately, but bear in mind that many other less obvious signs let you know it’s time to look for a new boiler.

Here are the top 6 warning signs;

  • An unexplained rise in energy bills – naturally, boilers lose efficiency over time, which means your energy bills will go up regardless, but if your energy bills are creeping up out of control, this might be a sign that your boiler needs replacing.
  • Your boiler makes odd noises such as banging, whistling, popping or hissing sounds.
  • Your boiler is leaking – while leaking doesn’t mean you have to replace your boiler, it is a sign that there are issues in one of the internal components. We recommend calling a heating engineer to check it out before it becomes more serious.
  • Frequent breakdowns – this happens a lot towards the end of the boiler’s lifespan and it may be time to start shopping around for a new boiler.
  • The boiler doesn’t heat your home as it used to and doesn’t provide hot water either.
  • Finding replacement parts for your boiler is a nightmare.
