The Facts and Figures
A Typical example would an A+ Rated Energy Efficient Vokera boiler capable of running a 3-4 bedroom house fully supplied & fitted with a 5 year servicing plan (which you need to validate any new boiler supplied by any manufacturer & installed, no servicing carried out no guarantee honoured) £1,995.00*

The calculations above are based on a home with gas-powered central heating, using an average 17252 kWh gas p/a at a cost of £666 p/a.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that a new boiler could also add to the value of your home, so take this into consideration when you’re looking at boiler prices.

New boiler installation costs by company
When having a new boiler fitted most people prefer to contact their existing service provider to get the job done quickly and efficiently. We contacted the following gas and energy providers, who came up with the following figures:
- British Gas – charge between £2,500 and £4,000 for new boiler installation (higher-end prices include thermostatic radiator valves and one year free servicing)
- EDF Energy – will install a new boiler for £1,000 to £3,500 (including annual protection and fixed energy prices until Dec 2012)
- E.ON – charge £1,800 to £3,000 for a new boiler installation (with a potential 25% off bills for the first six months – deal valid until Feb 2012)
- Npower – carry out a new boiler installation for £2,900 to 3,600 (higher prices including five year free servicing and repair warranty)
Boilers account for about 55 per cent of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference.Modern boilers are more efficient for several reasons, but their main advantage is that they are all condensing boilers. All well-maintained boilers burn their fuel very efficiently, but they inevitably lose some heat in the hot gases that escape up the flue. A condensing boiler has a larger heat exchanger, so it recovers more heat, sends cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient.
Sometimes the flue gases get so cool that the water vapour in the gas condenses out (hence the name), and even more energy is recovered from the condensing vapour. I think this is a better table to use as higher figures & wider across the board.
