Boiler installation prices depend on both the boiler itself and labor costs. Under most situations, the total installation price of a high-efficiency gas-fired boiler will range between approximately $2,500 to approximately $5,500. Installing an oil-fired boiler will range between approximately $4,500 and approximately $7,500. The prices will also vary depending on whether you purchase an installation package or buy it as is. You can save money on these prices by selecting a boiler that has already been installed. You may also be able to get a significantly lower price if you choose a boiler that is covered by a warranty.
When it comes to comparing boiler installation prices it is important to remember that the prices are not just the price of the product alone. They are also the price of the labor that has to be devoted to installation. You have to consider the amount of time that it will take to install the unit on your own. You also have to factor in any transportation costs involved. These factors will go along with the overall cost of the gas boiler.
In many instances, you can actually save money on boiler installation costs if you choose a model that is already installed and purchased from a manufacturer. Most manufacturers offer significant discounts to customers that purchase a boiler that is already assembled. This is because the installer already has all of the tools necessary to complete the job and does not have to outsource the work. The buyer typically saves a great deal of money when choosing an already assembled oil-fired boiler.
You will need to add a substantial amount to the price of your boiler installation quote when you consider the cost of the pipework and radiators. You must factor in the cost of installing the heating element, the furnace or central air conditioning system, as well as the heating radiator. Pipework, baseboard radiators, and radiators are all part of the total price of your installation. Therefore, you must take into account the cost of the piping, as well as the heating elements and radiators. Another factor that will increase your new boiler cost is the energy efficiency rating of your new system.
If you have chosen an oil-burned boiler, you will also need to factor in the operating costs associated with the fuel that the boiler produces. While the initial cost of operating the oil burner is much higher than gas or electric, it will save you money in the long run on energy costs. The longer the boiler runs without having to be refueled, the lower the fuel consumption. However, if you are installing an oil burner, you will need to keep a careful watch on the quantity of the oil that is burned, as there can be a limit to the amount of oil that can be used without damage to the unit. It may be necessary to consult a professional Gas Safe engineer to get an estimate of how much fuel the boiler will run through in a year.
