Price of a new combi boiler installation in Tonbridge

Are you trying to work out how much it costs for a new combi boiler installation in Tonbridge? Prices can vary from about £2500 up to £5000 or above.

Two things affect the price of a new combi boiler install. The first is the make and power of the boiler that you choose – getting a high output boiler from a leading brand will be pricier than finding a lower output model from an affordable brand. The second element is how complex the installation job is – replacing your current combi boiler with another one in exactly the same position costs less as it’s not as labour intensive for an experienced heating engineer. On the other hand, if you’re converting from your ordinary heat only system to a combi one, this will be more expensive due to the extra labour and materials needed for completion of that job.

Our suggestion would be to talk to someone who knows their stuff when it comes to boilers! Explain what kind of system that you’d like installed and have them inspect your property, offering some options so that you can work out which model best suits your needs without spending too much money! We at Boiler Fit Direct Kent would be delighted to do a free survey and give you an estimate- just contact us on 01732 905513!

Combi Boiler Q & A

Which Combi Is The Best?

Making the right choice for your UK home heating? Look no further than these 3 leading brands: Viessmann, Vaillant and Worcester Bosch. These are all top quality boilers – but you may also want to consider Ideal, Baxi or Main.

Can You Have 2 Showers On At Once With A Combi?

When installing a Combi boiler in your home, it’s important to know that it can only provide 8-12 litres of hot water per minute. That’s enough for one shower, but not two running simultaneously. In this case, you would need to install a Heat-Only or System boiler combined with a hot water cylinder. Or you could choose a storage Combi boiler instead. This type of boiler features an in-built hot water tank for enhanced performance, and manufacturers such as Vaillant and Viessmann supply models with a flow rate of 20 litres per minute – enough for two showers at the same time!

Where Can You Fit A Combi?

Installing a combi boiler gives you the option to pick where you want it in your home, provided that it complies with all relevant manufacture’s guidelines, gas regulations and building regulations.
Here are several examples of where a combi boiler could be put:

  • Kitchen cupboard
  • Utility room
  • Airing cupboard
  • Loft
  • Garage
  • Bedroom

Should A Combi Boiler Be Installed On An Outside Wall?

Installing a Combi boiler on an outdoor wall is typically preferred as it makes things easier and more affordable – plus, its flue pipe (or chimney) carrying away fumes can travel directly out of the building. Nevertheless, other alternatives are available if this isn’t feasible. One such solution is a vertical flue – here the exhaust rises up into the roof before leaving the building instead of going straight outdoors from an external wall. This type of installation is often seen in lofts or airing cupboards.

If you’re looking at something other than an external wall installation for your Combi boiler, it’s wise to chat with either a Gas Safe Registered heating engineer or the boiler maker about possible flue setups. As each brand has varied specifications for their own flues, something that works safely with one may not be suitable for another – so verifying first is essential.

Does A Combi Boiler Require A Hot Water Cylinder?

If you have a Combi boiler there is no requirement for a water tank as the boiler gets its supply straight from the mains. But if you’ve got one of these systems and there’s also a water tank in your loft, it’s likely that the installation was not done correctly.

What Causes Combi Boilers Break Down & Need Repair?

Sludge from the heating system pipes and radiators can block up delicate parts of your boiler when you install a new combi boiler, so it’s important to flush out your heating system first. To protect against future build-up, a magnetic sludge filter – often referred to as a Maganclean – should also be fitted at the same time. This device stops any sludge from entering your boiler in the first place. Plus, when you get your annual service, this filter should be serviced too – meaning it is removed and cleaned off to remove any sludge that has collected during the last 12 months. And don’t forget – these filters are essential if you want to keep your boiler manufacturer’s warranty intact.

Vaillant Ecotec Plus Display

Vaillant Combi Boiler Installation Tonbridge

Vaillant are best known for their Combi boilers. They pretty much invented the Combi boiler and were the first to bring Combi boilers to the UK in the late 1970’s and early 80’s. Since then, they’ve had a reputation for being high quality reliable Combi boilers and have done a great deal to improve the image of Combi boilers in the last 20 years. They’re also a very well established company, dating back over a 140 years with their origins in Germany.

Vaillant’s best known Combi boiler in Tonbridge is the EcoTec. Let’s look at this in a little more detail.

Vaillant Ecotec Plus Combi Boiler

The Ecotec plus has been around since the mid 2000’s. The latest versions of the Ecotec are still very similar to the original which shows how well the Ecotec’s design has stood the test of time. Vaillant were among the first manufactures to use a stainless steel radial heat exchanger. This was a revolution in efficiency and longevity in condensing boilers and set the standard for the next 20 years. Many manufactures have copied the Ecotec’s design, but none are as innovative as Vaillant in this area.

The Ecotec is still one of the best boilers you can buy. It will reliably produce heating and hot water in your Tonbridge home for many years to come.

The popular Logic range is one of their oldest models, yet it still stands up well against competitors with its lower cost and strong warranty. If you’re looking for a reliable boiler without breaking the bank, this is definitely one to consider!

Worcester Bosch Combi Boiler Replacement Tonbridge

Worcester Bosch are another household name when it comes to Combi boilers in Tonbridge – and for good reason too. They may not be pioneers like Vaillant, but Worcester Bosch can certainly build great quality Combi boilers. In 1996, the long established UK manufacturer, Worcester, merged with German giant Bosch to create the Worcester Bosch brand we know today. Since then they’ve build a solid reputation as one of the best boiler manufactures around. The owe most of this to one particular combi boiler: the Worcester Bosch CDi.

Worcester Bosch Cdi Combi Boiler (Now Called The Worcester Bosch 8000)

The first iteration of the Worcester Cdi combi came out in the mid 1990’s. It was a well built and well designed combi boiler. So good, in fact, that there are original Cdi’s in Tonbridge over 25 years old that are still working well today! This is where Worcester Bosch began to be known for building bullet proof boilers. Since then they’ve revised and updated the Cdi, making it better with every version, until today, with the new 8000 range. The Worcester Bosch 8000 range takes the place of the trusty Cdi and is build on it’s foundations, so you can be sure it’s a solid and reliable boiler.
