Boiler installation costs
The price of the boiler itself is just one element to factor in.
When you add the price of installation, a possible engineer call-out charge, the cost of extra parts, any extra work that may be needed to your central heating system, plus VAT, the boiler price itself may make up only a small part of the overall boiler replacement price.
