ours was 1500 but that was moving it to a completely different room and adding a radiator and tidying everything up ie brickwork piping and stiff more work involved basically.

I think you'd be looking at over £1000 including fitting, depends on which company you use.

did u buy the boiler yourself or was it a deal? who did u use? thanks for replying back

had ours done recently (got a combi boiler) & cost us £1600

I had a swap out on a new combi boiler which cost £1200 all in, inc boiler & parts

Maybe look in your local newspaper, companies usually advertise special offers in ours. Or the Yellow Pages.

But, I'd stick with the smaller companies as they might be the most flexible on price if they're vying for your business.

thanks for your advice... i will keep that in mind... it does seem like this is going to be a very expensive job. im thinking i should carry on with this boiler until it breaks down.... which more than likely it will... then i will get a new one fitted as repairs would cost around 400 quid so its better to get a new one fitted......... However (wishful thinking i know) if it doesnt breakdown, in two years time we will be selling the house anyway...

it will depend on what you have now and where it is, also depends waht area you live, cause the prices u seen on this thread see a little to cheap

that was the boiler and everything included so i though it was quite good especially as they moved it to a different room so more work involved, are you from the same area as me? as i used a local company

no im in leicester... you definitely managed to get a good price....

an average boiler to buy on its own between £600-£700 then you have to get it fitted, there is a place advertising in the sun normally a full page advert, advertising full packages or parts on there own you could purchase and then just get your labour, it stops your plumber making some cash on your boiler:)

i hope you get it sorted and dont have to pay too much as there are some conmen out there and cowboys just be careful and do a check on them 1st and have a good shop around :thumbsup:

anywhere from £900 to £2k. looks like good pricing >

search ebay under COMBI-BOILER SUPPLIED or COMBI-BOILER fitted (guy who does a boiler swap for £299)


P.S. IF YOU DO HAVE A SLUDGE PROBLEM , IT IS NOT JUST A MATTER OF CHANGING THE BOILER, YOU WOULD STILL HAVE TO HAVE YOUR SYSTEM FLUSHED, WHICH COSTS A FAIR BIT.
