Evaluating Combi Boiler Prices and Expenses

Some of the most well-known and highly respected manufacturers of combi boilers are the following: Laars, Viessmann, Munchkin, Weil-McLain, Hamilton Engineering, Trianco Heatmaker, and Thermal Solutions. Each of these names offers a selection of energy saving and highly reliable combi boiler systems.

Combi boilers can save homeowners a lot of money and space. Because these types of boilers readily heat up water from the cold water mains, there will be no need for cylinders or pipework; hence, less floor space is used. A combi boiler system can also supply both the heating needs, as well as the hot water requirements of homes, making them very energy efficient.

When looking for a boiler for your place, it’s important to know that dealers may provide different price quotes concerning one type of boiler. In order to avail of great deals, go online and do some comparative shopping. This way, you’ll get an idea regarding cheap combi boilers for sale, and also how much certain combi systems cost. Here are some price quotes regarding some combi boiler brands: Laars (Mascot Series) – Price range: $3,000 to $5,600; Viessmann – Price range: $3,000 – $7,000; Munchkin – Price range: $3,000 – $7,500. Remember that when it comes to heating systems, it’s best not to compromise quality for price. The cheaper types are often lacking in performance, functionality, durability, and reliability.

Another aspect that homeowners will have to think about is combi boiler installation cost. It is recommended that you hire a certified, accredited, and highly skilled installer to avoid causing unnecessary damage to your expensive heating equipment. An installation cost can vary because some installers will add more if there are other things that need to be done, such as having work done on thermostatic radiator valves, system flushing, and removal of header tank. A good idea is to get at least three quotes from different companies. Also, start with an installation cost of about $2,000 and go up from there. Keep in mind that property size, boiler type, piping system, and other building regulations that need to be met will all affect the installation fee.
