The time has come to invest in a new boiler. Although the idea of having a brand new boiler in your home is an exciting one, the idea of having to fork out the cash to buy it isn't.
The price of a new boiler
With the great variety of boilers available today, it is fair that there is quite a range in terms of cost. Depending on the system of the boiler, it can cost anything between £500 and £2,500. The most affordable kinds of boilers in the UK are the conventional boilers that cost between £400 and £1,500, and the combi boilers that are between £500 and £2,000.
A condensing boiler has a higher low-end cost and ranges between £1,300 and £2,500. Finally, the most expensive boilers in the UK are biomass boilers that cost anything between £7,000 - £13,000.
Most people who are on the market for a new boiler find what they need in the combi boiler. It is an electric boiler that costs between £1,500 - £4,500. Combi boilers have significant benefits, including:
Installing a combi boiler will save you a great deal of space as it is much more compact than other kinds of boilers. In fact, these combi boilers are so small that they can easily fit into your laundry space or kitchen.
A combi boiler will deliver increased water pressure.
Combi boilers are affordable to buy, install, and service. You'll find that the boiler offers significantly lower costs.

An oil-fired combi boiler has pros and cons. The upside of having an oil-fired combi boiler is the incredible efficiency that it provides. However, the downsides are that oil prices rise constantly, and an oil-fired boiler requires proper and frequent maintenance.
