Cost of Installing A New Gas Central Heating System

Whether you want to change from storage heaters to a gas boiler, or you simply need to replace an old system, the cost of installing a new central heating system is something that’ll probably be on your mind before you go ahead with the installation itself.

Prices for installing central heating can vary. It depends on things like the boiler model you choose, whether you require radiators or other new parts, and the payment plan you choose – if you pay upfront or apply for a finance package.

Without speaking to a professional, you’ll only be able to get a ballpark idea of how much a new boiler might cost you. The information in this article can help with that. If you’re looking for a more exact figure, your best bet is to contact us for a quote.

Learning about your system

If you know what type of central heating system you’re updating from, or which kind you want to upgrade to you can begin to get an idea of the overall cost.

As you might imagine, different systems cost different amounts. For example, if you have an electric storage heater system, you’ll need to consider the cost of storage heaters rather than radiators.

How much is a new boiler?

The boiler is the hub of a central heating system, and at Help-Link, we only install boilers from well-known, reputable brands including Worcester Bosch, Vokèra, and Ideal.

The cost of a boiler will likely depend on the size of the house it needs to supply. A bigger house will require a more powerful boiler, and those can be more expensive than a boiler that supplies a smaller house.

Buying a new boiler might seem like an expensive product, but because it should be more energy efficient, you may see long term savings on your heating bills.

For example, if you’re upgrading from a very old model, a new energy-efficient boiler could save you up to £215 per year, according to the Energy Saving Trust. Understanding how energy efficient your current boiler is can help you gauge what sort of savings you might see.

Buying a boiler on finance

It’s understandable that not everyone may be able to pay for a new boiler all at once. With Help-Link, you have the option of purchasing a new boiler and paying for it in instalments with a finance package.

You can get finance plans that range from three to ten years, starting from £17 per month[1].

Boiler grants

You can also look into boiler grants available through energy suppliers. Depending on your situation, you could qualify to have money knocked off the price of a new boiler, or you may be eligible to have the entire cost covered.

Other cost considerations

The boiler is just one element of a whole central heating system, and there are other components that are essential in order to create a warm home.

When considering the cost of a new central heating system, think about how big your house is and how much work you’ll want doing. And always remember that the best way to understand the price of a boiler is to contact us for a quote.
