How much does it cost to install a new oil boiler?
Friday 16th June 2021
Oil boilers are less common than gas boilers because they are only used in households that are not connected to the gas mains.
An oil boiler installation can help increase efficiency and safety in your home. It is, however, different and more expensive because it uses different appliances to store the fuel.
Standard costs involved for installation of an oil boiler
The cost of a new, high-quality oil boiler can range between £3000-£6000. Different factors are considered when a price is finalised. These factors include:
- The type of oil boiler
- The make and model
- Quality of pipework
To obtain the most accurate quote for your specific oil boiler, it is highly recommended that a visit is arranged with your local plumber.
This means that the work can be assessed properly and an accurate quotation can be obtained.
Additional cost considerations
Each oil boiler system is unique, which means there is a range of different products required, and in some cases, upgrades to equipment may be essential too. These different costs and products include:
- Movement of the oil boiler (if you plan to move the oil boiler internally/externally)
- Price of the new boiler
- Magnetic filters
- Standard flues
