Are you looking for a price for a new boiler installation? Who isn't?
Our gas boiler installation calculator does it all for you, simply enter your postcode and answer a few questions and you will get a fixed price quote on the screen in seconds.
The calculator asks a series of questions to determine a price based on your unique circumstances and presents a range of boilers for every budget.
Once you have selected your boiler, you can then choose your installation date and get your boiler fitted by a Gas Safe Engineer as quick as 24 hours.
How does the boiler installation cost calculator work?
Our boiler quote calculator asks all the questions necessary to provide an accurate installation cost for your specific needs.
The questions are based on the following factors:
#1 - Type of Property
If you live in a small apartment, then the boiler you require will be smaller in both power and dimensions than the one you would need for a large 4 bedroom property.
For example, a combi boiler is the most popular type of boiler in the UK, but if your property has a high hot water demand e.g. multiple bathrooms and radiators, a system boiler is typically recommended.

#2 - Number of Bedrooms
The number of bedrooms in your property is also factored into providing an accurate quote since this determines how much space needs to be heated.
Therefore, the more rooms the greater the heat output required from the boiler.
#3 - Number of Bathrooms
If you have multiple bathrooms or water outlets that are frequently used at the same time, then it’s likely that you will need a boiler with a hot water storage cylinder; this will be able to meet your hot water requirements.
Combi boilers won't work in homes with a very high hot water demand, which is a shame.
#4 - Your Type of Boiler Installation
A straightforward swap i.e. replacing an old combi boiler with a new one is going to be cheaper than converting from one type of boiler to another e.g. going from a combi to a system boiler.
Our calculator is able to quote for the following types of boiler installations:
- Combi Boiler Replacements
- Back Boiler Conversions (To Combi)
- Regular Boiler Replacements
- System Boiler Replacements
- Converions From Regular/System to Combi

#5 - Number of Radiators
The number of radiators in your home is also an important factor to consider, since the more you have, the greater the heat output required from the boiler.
#6 - Boiler Moves (Relocations)
It’s almost always less expensive to have your new boiler installed in the same location as your previous boiler.
Moving a boiler to a different part of your home costs more for a variety of reasons - it requires more labour, more time and usually more parts e.g. copper pipework.
The cost will also be determined by where you want your boiler moving to, for example, it’s cheaper to move your boiler within the same room vs. from the kitchen to the attic.
Typically, you can expect to pay between £250 and £500 for the average central heating boiler move. Although, you should be prepared to pay more if the engineer will be required to do substantial pipework and/or flue work.

It’s a good idea to give your complete heating system a deep clean before installing your new boiler.
Over time dirt and rust can build up and sludge can develop, which is a leading cause of blocked water flow and corrosion.
Therefore, it makes sense to improve the quality of your heating water when you install a new boiler, to help prevent damage and improve efficiency.
Heatable offer a range of flushing options including:
- Chemical Flush
Read all about them in our flushing options guide.
