Boiler Installation Bristol
There’s no doubting the fact that your boiler is an integral part of your home. After all, without your boiler, you’d have no hot water, and the lack of central heating would lead to some really cold nights. If you are in or around Bristol and are having problems with your boiler, there’s no need to panic though, as at CRB Plumbing and Heating we have the means to help.
When you call us about your boiler, we’ll first come and inspect it, to see if there is anything we can do to simply repair it. We are always honest, so we always try to ensure that we offer the most cost-effective option to our customers, meaning that repair is always our preferred choice. If a repair can’t be achieved though, we’ll instead happily fit a new boiler for you.
The Different Types of Boilers
There are many different types of boilers available, and we’ll work with you to identify the one that best suits your needs. The three types of boilers we install regularly are:
- Standard boilers. These are the simplest form of boilers, and come with a water tank and a hot water cylinder. They are best for homes that have more than a single bathroom, however they are quite large, and the amount of hot water that can be produced at one time is limited.
- Combi boilers. Combi boilers are becoming more and more popular in the UK, and they heat water directly from the mains. This means that you can have water whenever you need it – unlike a standard boiler, which can only provide as much water as is in the tank. What’s more, they are relatively quick and easy to install.
- System boilers. These are used to heat your central heating directly, and work in a similar way to the standard boiler. They have some advantages though, as they are much easier to install, and cost much less money to operate.
Because each of the boilers has pros and cons, it is important that you consult with a professional before choosing the option that is best for you. We’ll always be ready to provide help and advice if needed, and will always give you the option we think is best for your own personal circumstances.

Should I Buy a New Boiler?
If your boiler isn’t functioning properly, you may be wondering if it’s time to replace it. In some cases, repairs may be more expensive than purchasing a new boiler, or impractical.
Get a Second Opinion
Before you make a final decision on whether to replace your boiler, consider consulting with a Gas Safe registered engineer. An engineer will check your boiler to see if repairs can be made, or if you’ll need a replacement.
In some cases, a simple, inexpensive repair is all that’s needed to get a boiler up and running properly again. If no remedy is available, the engineer can provide you with a recommendation on the best boiler type to match your budget and size of your home.
If a boiler has a “G” rating, which is the lowest energy efficiency rating, you may consider replacing it. An inefficient boiler will waste more energy, which will cost you more money in the long-run.
A new boiler can also increase the value of your home. If you plan to sell or rent your home, replacing an outdated boiler will help you fetch a higher price. It will also increase the EPC rating of your property.
The added value often outweighs the small investment in a new boiler.
Replacement, Service and Repair Costs
It may be more practical or economical to repair your boiler. Repairs can cost at least £50 – not including parts. The costs are much higher for emergency call-outs.
If you decide that replacement is the best option, the upfront cost will obviously be much higher than repairs.
Prices for new boilers vary greatly, but can range from £600 to £3,000. The cost will depend on a number of factors, including the boiler type, installation costs and the size of the boiler.
When considering the cost of the new boiler, you will also need to factor in the cost of servicing the unit. Regular servicing will make sure that the boiler is working properly and help prevent problems in the future. Some companies require an annual boiler service as part of their warranty terms. Servicing typically costs £60-110, depending on the age and manufacturer of the unit.
Managing the Cost of a New Boiler
Boiler scrappage schemes are also available to help with the costs of purchasing a new boiler. These programs offer a £400 rebate when you replace a boiler with a “G” rating.
The rebate can aid in the cost of replacing an inefficient boiler, but what if you don’t qualify for the scheme? Heating companies usually offer payment plans to make the replacement costs more manageable. In many cases, you can choose the length of your payment term to better suit your lifestyle and budget.
How a New Boiler Saves You Money
Replacing an old boiler can help improve energy efficiency and save you money every month. Newly manufactured boilers must hold an efficiency rating of “A,” as per EU guidelines.
An “A” rating has an energy rating of 88% or higher compared to other boilers.
