If it is time to get a new central heating system or just replace your old central heating boiler, you’ll need to know how much it’s going to cost, and how much they currently are on the market.
It is not as straightforward as you might imagine.
There is no definitive answer because the UK’s houses and central heating systems differ to such a large extent.
The cost of installation and parts vary wildly depending on where you research.
Central heating installers often provide you with the parts, using his contacts and charge accordingly.
Getting them one source is convenient way to acquire the parts, and ensures that you get exactly what you need.
If you feel you can get a better deal acquiring them yourself from an independent parts dealer or using the internet, ask for a list of all items the fitter requires, with as much detail as possible.
As a rough guide, around 7 radiators, with fitting, cost around £830. This price will vary depending on the size.
Installation should cost around £100, with the pipe work and fitting costing £1000 and allowing for miscellaneous extras and fitting costs by around £300.
If asked, most central heating companies will give you a more detailed breakdown of their quotes for parts so you can understand it more thoroughly.
