Types of Boiler

Below you will find some more information about the different types of boilers available in the UK, including servicing cost factors.

Gas Boiler Servicing

Gas boiler servicing is the most common type of boiler service carried out in the UK. Most homes can expect to pay an average of £75 for a gas boiler service. This price does not account for any repairs that may be required. Due to the popularity of gas boilers in homes throughout the nation, there are ample local servicing specialists.

Gas boiler servicing is also commonly available as part of an annual servicing, maintenance and breakdown service, which are offered by companies such as British Gas. Annual breakdown and boiler servicing packages typically cost around double the price of an one-off service, but do provide home owners with complete peace of mind.

Oil Boiler Servicing

Oil boilers are commonly used, but do cost more to run and service, when compared to gas boilers. On average, an oil boiler service costs from £65 to £150. The higher cost is due to fewer oil boiler servicing specialists, and also due to many oil boilers being located in more remote locations.

Solid Fuel Boiler Servicing

If you have a solid fuel boiler installed, a one-off service will generally cost between £70 to £140. In most circumstances, a solid fuel boiler service will require more work than other boilers, as the service will include stripping, inspecting and cleaning of the boiler. As a result, solid fuel boilers generally cost the most to service.

Electric Boiler Servicing

If you use an electric boiler, the cost of servicing will typically range between £65 to £120. If you require repairs as part of your annual maintenance, this will increase the price. Electric boilers require specially trained technicians to carry out maintenance, and with fewer technicians then with gas boilers, the price of electric boiler servicing is typically higher.

Boiler Service Grants

You may be eligible for a free boiler service grant, which provides money towards to the cost of servicing your boiler via one of the following schemes:

These free boiler servicing grants are designed to help low income homes ensure their boilers are working and energy efficient.

British Gas Boiler Service

The British Gas boiler service is a popular option for many home owners around the UK. They are a trusted brand, and typically deliver an high quality service that you can rely on. They offer an annual boiler service as part of the HomeCare package.

If you are on a tight budget, you may want to opt for a local professional rather than the British Gas boiler service, as prices are typically slightly cheaper.

Worcester Bosch Service

One of the most prominent boiler brands in the UK is Worcester Bosch. They have earned a reputation as one of the best boilers on the market. Due to their popularity, there are many specialist Worcester boiler service specialists available around the nation. They can help provide any repairs or maintenance you require.
