What is a Combi Boiler?
A combi boiler (also known as a combination boiler) provides hot water and central heating to more than 50% of homes in the UK. Although combi boiler prices have gone up in recent years, it still remains the most popular, efficient and cost effective boiler in the long run. Having a combi boiler means you will not need extra piping and separate hot water cylinders, which means it will take up far less space and will take less time installing a combi boiler – saving you extra money.
Combi Boiler Prices
Combi boilers prices usually range from £500-£1500 but this all depends on:
- Combi Boiler Brand – the brand/make/model of a combi boiler is an important factor to consider when buying a combi boiler. It is recommended to buy a British made combi boiler since they are well known for their quality and efficiency. Combi boiler prices can also be a good indicator of the type of quality and reliability you can expect (this is not always the case). If you were to spend £400 on a combi boiler from a less known manufacturer in say China, you can usually expect it to be less efficient and less reliable than buying a £900 combi boiler from a well known and experienced manufacturer such as Baxi.
- Combi Boiler Insurance Policy/Warranty – Many combi boilers can come with boiler insurance, so if your combi boiler was to stop working, you would be covered when maintenance is carried out. However, if your combi boiler does not come with boiler insurance then it might be worth thinking about getting it covered, as it can save you lots of money in the long run, and you won’t need to worry about expensive maintenance being carried out at your own cost.
- Combi Boiler Installation – Some combi boiler prices also include free combi boiler installation in the price. This can be a hassle free and cost effective option as it will be installed by a fully qualified and gas safe registered professional. Alternatively, you can buy a combi boiler without free installation which should cut the cost, and then find someone to install the combi boiler yourself. However, it is important to make sure the person who installs your combi boiler is fully qualified for safety reasons and to ensure no problems occur due to a faulty installation, as you would then end up paying more money further down the line for repairs!
