Cost of boiler repair vs new boiler installation

Viessmann Vitodens 200-W - Boiler repair vs replacement | BoilerhutBoiler repair vs replacement is often a thought circling around in a homeowner’s head. Repair will likely cost less that replacement, but is that the only thing that’s going wrong? Will more components break soon?

The older a boiler the less reliable they become, especially after 15 years of use. If you’ve had a broken boiler before, then you may know some of common boiler faults:

  • Water is not heating up to a high enough temperature, or the water is not warming up.
  • The boiler’s leaking or dripping.
  • You’re hearing strange banging noises, whistling, or gurgling sounds from your boiler.
  • The pilot light on a back boiler has gone out.
  • Low water pressure

At Boilerhut, we don’t have a boiler repair service; we’re a specialist installation company. But we can look after boilers we’ve installed for the term of their warranty.

When it comes to repairing your boiler you will need to decide if paying for a repair is worth money. It will cost less than replacing the boiler, of course. But a new boiler from Boilerhut will come with a 10-year warranty as a minimum.

This means a higher upfront outlay now could save you £1,000s in repair and call-out costs over a few years. Especially as the Viessmann boilers we install are looked after by Viessmann themselves. This means your boiler WILL last the full term of the warranty.

We checked the prices for boiler repair vs replacement with British Gas and found that it could cost between £3,800 and £5,600. And they charge £110 as a call out fee.

Then we looked at getting boiler repair costs with a local plumber, and their call-out charge was roughly £85. And the parts and labour cost would be around £370 for the average boiler repair. While this seems better value than getting a new boiler, You may only be delaying the inevitable.

Paying for a new boiler

Thankfully, our finance options at Boiler Hut make replacing your old boiler affordable. And you can rest at ease knowing that all of our finance options are backed with a manufacturer-based warranty. So, even if Boilerhut shut the boiler manufacturer would still look after you.
