How much is a new combi boiler in Gillingham?

Are you interested in finding out how much a new combi boiler installation in Gillingham would cost? Prices can vary from around £2500 up to £5000 or more.

Two things influence the price of a new combi boiler install. The first is the make and output of the boiler you select – buying a high output boiler from a well known brand will be more expensive than choosing a lower output boiler from a budget brand. The second factor is how difficult the installation job is – replacing your old combi boiler with another one in the same spot will be cheaper as it’s not as labour intensive for a heating engineer. However, if you have an ordinary heat only model and want to convert to a combi boiler, this will cost more due to the additional labour and materials that are needed.

Our advice would be to chat with a heating engineer who knows what they’re doing. Describe what you’re after and get them to survey your home and provide some options. In this way, you can determine the best boiler for your needs, at the right price. Here at Advance Medway, we’d be delighted to do a free survey and give you a quote – just call us on 01634 979595!

Combi Boiler Q & A

Which Combi Boiler Is The Best?

If you’re looking for a new boiler, then you can’t go wrong with the top 3 brands we recommend: Viessmann, Vaillant and Worcester Bosch. All are excellent quality, as are Ideal, Baxi and Main.

Can A Combi Boiler Run 2 Showers?

If you’re considering installing a Combi boiler in your home, remember that they usually have an output of 8-12 litres of hot water each minute – enough for one shower, but not if two are running at once. In this case, a Heat-Only or System boiler along with a hot water cylinder is the best solution. Alternatively, you could opt for a storage Combi boiler which comes with its own hot water tank to boost performance. Vaillant and Viessmann both manufacture these boilers and their flow rate is over 20 litres per minute – giving you the capacity to have two showers running simultaneously.

Where Can You Install A Combi Boiler?

Installing a combi boiler gives you the option to pick where you want it in your home, provided that it complies with all relevant manufacture’s guidelines, gas regulations and building regulations.
Here are several examples of where a combi boiler could be put:

  • Kitchen cupboard
  • Utility room
  • Airing cupboard
  • Loft
  • Garage
  • Bedroom

Do I Need To Install A Combi Boiler On An Outside Wall?

Although outside wall installations are usually easier and cheaper for Combi boilers, there are other possibilities if this isn’t possible. A vertical flue is one such option – this means that the boiler’s exhaust goes up into the roof and out of the building, instead of travelling straight outdoors from an outside wall. This tends to be used when boilers are installed in lofts or airing cupboards.

When planning a Combi boiler installation that isn’t on an outside wall, it’s wise to consult with a Gas Safe Registered heating engineer or the boiler manufacturer regarding your flue options. Different brands have different specifications for their flues, so something that works with one make may not with another – so checking is important.

Does A Combi Boiler Require A Hot Water Tank?

Combi boilers don’t require a water tank – they simply draw their supply directly from the mains. If you’ve got one of these boilers but there’s also a water tank in your loft, it’s likely that it has been installed incorrectly.

What Makes Combi Boilers Go Wrong?

When you install a new combi boiler, it’s essential to flush out your heating system to get rid of any sludge. This sludge can block up sensitive parts of the boiler and cause damage. That’s why it’s important to fit a magnetic sludge filter – often known as a Maganclean – at the same time as your boiler. This device traps any sludge from the heating system before it reaches your boiler. And as part of your boiler’s annual service, it should be serviced once a year and the filter removed and cleaned off to get rid of any sludge that has built up in the past 12 months. These filters are very important and are usually necessary for your boiler manufacturer’s guarantee.

Vaillant Ecotec Plus Display

Vaillant are synonymous with high quality Combi boilers which first arrived on British shores more than 40 years ago – showcasing German engineering excellence that dates back 140 years or more. This long history has led to them becoming one of the most trusted names in boiler technology worldwide.

The Ecotec Plus Combi Boiler has been around since 2005, remaining largely unchanged throughout its lifespan despite other manufacturers making great strides during this time period. It was among the first to feature a stainless steel radial heat exchanger – a revolutionary development which improved condensing boiler efficiency beyond recognition – something that countless others have looked up to ever since.

Worcester Bosch Combi Boiler Installation Gillingham

Residents of Gillingham are familiar with Worcester Bosch when it comes to Combi boilers – and for good cause also. They may not be pioneers like Vaillant, however they can definitely produce great quality Combi boilers. This British brand began life in 1996 when UK makers Worcester merged with German giant Bosch to create what we now know as ‘Worcester Bosch’. In recent years they’ve earned an impressive reputation due largely to their flagship product: the much-loved Worcester Bosch CDi boiler.

Worcester Bosch CDi Combi Boiler (Now Called The Worcester Bosch 8000)

The first iteration of the Cdi combi came out in the mid 1990’s and quickly became renowned for its robust build and quality design features. There are even some original models running well today in Gillingham, over 25 years later! It was here that people began to realise how reliable these boilers were from Worcester Bosch . Subsequent versions have seen incremental improvements made until we arrive at today’s 8000 range – built upon similar foundations as that of its predecessor you can guarantee it will stand up well against time .

Since then, the company (based in Preston, Lancashire) has become a part of the Baxi Group and is well-known for their Main and Potterton brands. Baxi boilers are a great alternative to traditional boilers, and Main boiler models are especially budget-friendly.

A popular choice for Gillingham homeowners is the Baxi 800. Built in the UK from high-grade brass components, this boiler and heating system have a protective Adey Micro2 magnet filter system. It’s small enough to fit into most kitchen cabinets and the EasyFill system makes it easy to top up the central heating pressure without calling an engineer.
