New Boiler Quotes: How Does it Work?

It couldn't be easier or quicker to find and compare new boiler quotes with Boiler Guide. Looking for boiler installers who are highly recommended, have the right qualifications and experience as well as trying to get them at the best price, can be a real hassle.

Luckily, it doesn't have to be that way - Boiler Guide is here to make finding new boiler quotes quick and easy.

Here we outline how you can use our service to find and compare new boiler quotes from Gas Safe registered and highly recommended boiler installers in your area.

How to get your new boiler quotes

1. Answer a few questions

To kick off your search for new boiler quotes, you need to answer some simple questions using the form at the top of this page. The first question asks you whether you are looking for quotes for a new boiler, a new complete central heating system or a boiler repair.

We will then need to know what type of boiler you have, the fuel it runs on and some details about your home. You'll also be asked for a postcode so that we can find boiler installers which are working in your area.

The form only takes a few minutes to complete and doing so doesn't place you under any obligation to accept any quote you receive. There is absolutely no fee for using our service to find boiler quotes.

2. Confirm your contact details

When you submit your enquiry, someone from our team will give you a quick call to make sure we have your correct contact information and we know exactly what you need from your boiler quotes. Don't worry, it only takes a couple of minutes and we're a very friendly bunch!

3. Receive your boiler quotes

You'll then be contacted by up to 3 Gas Safe registered heating engineers in your area. In some cases the engineer may be able to provide an estimate over the phone, or via a video call, but often they will need to arrange to visit your home. They will need to find out what type, size and brand of boiler that will be fitted so they can calculate the total price of installation, plus details of anything else which needs to included, e.g. chemical flushes, filters or thermostats. All the quotes you receive are free and you're under no obligation to accept any of them.

4. Book your new boiler installation

When you have received all of your free new boiler quotes, it's time to choose the one which works best for you. Your choice might come down to price, the brand of boiler they will install, the warranty offered and/or testimonials and ratings from previous customers. Of course, if none of the quotes work for you, you do not need to accept any of them.

All the quotes you receive from Boiler Guide will be from Gas Safe registered heating engineers, as they are the only people legally allowed to install, fix and maintain gas appliances. If you have an oil boiler, the installer should be OFTEC registered.

When you have chosen a quote, you can arrange a convenient date and time for the work to be carried out with the engineer.

Why should I use Boiler Guide?

Because we give you an easy, quick, reliable and free way to find new boiler quotes. Boiler Guide has built up a national network of approved heating engineers, all ready to provide you with hassle free quotes to get your boiler replaced. We do all the hard work for you, including checking the Gas Safe accreditation of every engineer every 24 hours. All you have to do is choose which quote - if any - you want to use.

Are the boiler quotes free?

Yes, our service provides you with boiler replacement quotes for free. And you're not under any obligation to accept any of the quotes either. All we ask is that you are serious about getting quotes.

I've completed the enquiry form...what happens next?

Once you've told us your basic requirements in the online form here, we will call or email you to make sure we have all we need to get your boiler quotes. Up to 3 approved engineers will then contact you to provide quotes. They will need to visit your property in order to evaluate the job properly. Then it's down to you to compare and select the quote that suits you best.

How many new boiler quotes will you provide for me?

Once you've submitted your enquiry we will try to put you in touch with up to 3 approved boiler engineers. To get the best possible price it is important that you consider more than one quote.

How long will it take to get boiler quotes?

In most cases you will receive up to 3 quotes within a matter of hours (sometimes minutes!). Once we have all that we need to get your boiler quotes our approved engineers will contact you so you can arrange a call or visit for your quote.

How do I compare boiler quotes?

When comparing boiler quotes, a big factor is obviously going to be the price, but it's important to remember that cheap is not always cheerful if you choose the wrong boiler or heating installer.

In addition to the price of the boiler installation, you should also consider the make/model of the boiler. Boilers are a lot like cars in that there are lots of makes and models to choose from, as well as different power capacities (measured in kilowatts or kW). For example, some boilers include longer warranties than others and have better reputations in terms of reliability and ease of use. You may want to take a look at customer reviews and installer recommendations if you are unsure of which boiler you want.

The engineer you choose should be Gas Safe registered (or OFTEC registered in the case of oil boiler installations) and qualified to complete the work required. You can rest assured that all of the heating engineers in our network are Gas Safe registered as we automatically check their credentials every 24 hours.

You should also look into the ratings and reviews of the heating engineer or company. You can do this here at Boiler Guide, on the engineer's website or social media and/or third party review websites.

How much is a new boiler going to cost?

The cost of a new boiler installation typically falls between £1,500 - £3,000, but there are lots of variables to consider. Some of the factors that can have an impact on boiler installation costs include:

Type of boiler being installed and replaced: A like-for-like boiler swap is cheaper. Boiler make/model prices: There are lots of brands on the market, some are more affordable than others. Location of the new boiler: Installing a new boiler in the same place as the existing unit is usually cheaper than moving a boiler to a new location. Boiler installation rates charged by the installer: All heating engineers will set their own rates which can fluctuate depending on the time of year and where you live (London tends to be more expensive than other areas of the UK).

What if I don't want to accept any of the boiler quotes I receive?

There is no obligation to accept any of the boiler quotes you receive. We are here to help you get the best service at a price which works for you, and nobody will pester you if you decide none of the quotes are the right fit.

What happens after I have chosen a boiler quote?

Book your installation date:

When you have chosen a new boiler quote, the heating engineer will arrange a date for the installation which is convenient for you.

On the day of the installation:

You can help your engineer by clearing the area around the boiler so they have easy access. If your boiler is installed in the loft, it should be accessible via a set of stairs, a safe walkway and be sufficiently well lit.

While the work is being carried out:

Your water and heating system will need to be turned off while the engineer is working. Typically, a new boiler installation will take between 1-3 days, depending on how complicated the job is. For example, a like-for-like boiler replacement is the most straightforward boiler installation, while replacing your existing boiler with a different boiler type is much more complex as new pipework will need to be fitted with tanks or cylinders needing to be installed or removed.

After the installation:

When the work has been completed, your engineer should explain to you how to use your new boiler and any controls. The boiler should be covered by a manufacturer's warranty, so check with the engineer if they will be registering the boiler or if this is something you should do. The engineer may also let you know about aftercare or servicing plans they offer.

Your new boiler should work effectively for at least 10-15 years, but only if you carry out regular maintenance and have it serviced by a professional heating engineer every year. Find out more in 11 Simple Boiler Maintenance Tips.
