British Gas New Boiler Prices
British Gas new combi boiler prices vary drastically due to the fact they install many boilers from different boiler companies. Each boiler is slightly different to install, some easier than others, and they all vary in price coming from the manufacturer.
Every home is different. Some homes use a lot more water as they have more occupants, more rooms or more mains powered showers. These homes will require a bigger boiler with a higher output, which will increase the price of installation.
If you have a smaller home, with one or 2 occupants then the cost of your boiler may be lower as your hot water demand is likely to be a lot lower. You must tell British Gas all this information as accurately as possible to get the right combi boiler for your home.
Where you live will impact how much your installation will be. Boiler installations in London and the surrounding areas, as with everything else in these areas are generally more costly due to demand.

British Gas are well known for installing Worcester Bosch combi boilers. The reason for this is they are one of the best boiler companies on the market with high performance, superb efficiency and built to last. Although this sounds pretty good, it can come at a price as they aren’t the cheapest boiler on the market. You do get what you pay for though.
If you have a larger home with multiple bathrooms and a higher demand for hot water, then expect British Gas to recommend you something along the lines of a Worcester Bosch 440CDi combi boiler would be perfect. Looking at the other companies in the market, expect to pay in excess of £2,500 to have this boiler installed. It may be even over £3,000.
If you have a smaller home with fewer occupants they will probably offer you something along the lines of a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 25si. This will probably set you back at least £2,000 for one to be installed depending on the amount of work required. £2,000 would be for a straight combi replacement, the easiest type there is to fit.
