Price of a new combi boiler installation in Maidstone

Do you want to know how much it costs for a new combi boiler installation in Maidstone? Prices can range from around £2500 up to £5000 or higher.

Two elements determine the price of a new combi boiler install. Firstly, the make and power of the boiler you decide on – purchasing an advanced output model from an established brand name will be pricier than getting a lower output option from an affordable brand. The second factor is how complex the installation job is – changing out your existing combi boiler with another one in precisely the same place is cheaper as it’s not as intensive for a heating engineer. Converting from a standard heat only model to a combi system will be more costly as there’s additional labour and materials involved.

Our advice is to speak with someone who knows what they’re doing. Tell them what you want and get them to survey your home and provide some options. This way, you can work out which boiler suits you best without spending too much money. We at Central Heating Maidstone would be happy to do a free survey and give you an estimate – just call us on 01622 237425!

Combi Boiler Q & A

Which Combi Boiler Is The Best?

If you’re looking for a new boiler, then you can’t go wrong with the top 3 brands we recommend: Viessmann, Vaillant and Worcester Bosch. All are excellent quality, as are Ideal, Baxi and Main.

Can A Combi Boiler Run 2 Showers?

If you’re considering installing a Combi boiler in your home, remember that they usually have an output of 8-12 litres of hot water each minute – enough for one shower, but not if two are running at once. In this case, a Heat-Only or System boiler along with a hot water cylinder is the best solution. Alternatively, you could opt for a storage Combi boiler which comes with its own hot water tank to boost performance. Vaillant and Viessmann both manufacture these boilers and their flow rate is over 20 litres per minute – giving you the capacity to have two showers running simultaneously.

Where Can You Install A Combi Boiler?

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

Do I Need To Install A Combi Boiler On An Outside Wall?

Although outside wall installations are usually easier and cheaper for Combi boilers, there are other possibilities if this isn’t possible. A vertical flue is one such option – this means that the boiler’s exhaust goes up into the roof and out of the building, instead of travelling straight outdoors from an outside wall. This tends to be used when boilers are installed in lofts or airing cupboards.

When planning a Combi boiler installation that isn’t on an outside wall, it’s wise to consult with a Gas Safe Registered heating engineer or the boiler manufacturer regarding your flue options. Different brands have different specifications for their flues, so something that works with one make may not with another – so checking is important.

Does A Combi Boiler Require A Hot Water Tank?

Combi boilers don’t require a water tank – they simply draw their supply directly from the mains. If you’ve got one of these boilers but there’s also a water tank in your loft, it’s likely that it has been installed incorrectly.

What Makes Combi Boilers Go Wrong?

When you install a new combi boiler, it’s essential to flush out your heating system to get rid of any sludge. This sludge can block up sensitive parts of the boiler and cause damage. That’s why it’s important to fit a magnetic sludge filter – often known as a Maganclean – at the same time as your boiler. This device traps any sludge from the heating system before it reaches your boiler. And as part of your boiler’s annual service, it should be serviced once a year and the filter removed and cleaned off to get rid of any sludge that has built up in the past 12 months. These filters are very important and are usually necessary for your boiler manufacturer’s guarantee.

Vaillant Ecotec Plus Display

Vaillant Combi Boiler Installation Maidstone

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 Maidstone 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 Maidstone home for many years to come.

Worcester Bosch Combi Boiler Installation Maidstone

When it comes to Combi boilers in Maidstone, people know that Worcester Bosch is a trusted name – and for good reason too. They may not be first-movers like Vaillant, but they definitely make high quality Combi boilers. The popular UK brand was formed in 1996 when British manufacturer Worcester merged with German giant Bosch to create the now well-known Worcester Bosch name . Over time they’ve gained a strong status due to one particular combi boiler: the much-loved Worcester Bosch CDi.

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

The original form of the Worcester Cdi combi emerged in the mid 1990’s and quickly earned a name for its quality construction and design prowess. There are even some of these originals still going strong in Maidstone today – over 25 years later! This is where Worcester Bosch began to be known for producing tough boilers. Since then they have continued to refine and update this model, until today with their new 8000 range. Built upon similar foundations to that of the Cdi you can rest assured that it will last a long time.

Baxi Combi Boiler Installation Maidstone

Baxi Boilers were established back in 1866 during Britain’s industrial revolution by Richard Baxendale (an iron founder) who set up his business based in Preston, Lancashire – now part of the larger Baxi Group famous for its Main & Potterton boiler brands – perfect replacements for aging boilers or those on a tighter budget.

A popular choice among Maidstone homeowners is the Baxi 800 Combi; manufactured using high-grade brass components right here in the UK, this model offers extra protection through its Adey Micro2 magnet filter system as well as being compact enough to fit into any standard kitchen cupboard. It also comes with EasyFill technology so you won’t need an engineer to top up central heating pressure – plus it works with 20% hydrogen gas too! You’ll also get a 10-year parts & labour warranty included as standard with this model.

Viessmann Combi Boiler Installation Maidstone

Viessmann is the best boiler brand that you have ever heard of. You shouldn’t let this stop you from considering one though. Viessmann is a well-known brand in Europe. They are German, and like Vaillant they have been around for more than 100 years. Viessmann boilers are growing in Maidstone due to their high quality and affordability.

Viessmann Vitodens 050 Combi

This is Viessmann’s most basic and lowest cost combi boiler. However, from a build quality and reliability point of view, it will give the likes of Vaillant and Worcester Bosch’s flagship models and run for their money while being hundred of pounds cheaper. This boiler is guaranteed for up to 10 years which makes it a great choice for anyone in Maidstone with a one bathroom property.

Viessmann Vitodens 111 Storage Combi

The Vitodens 111 Storage Combi boiler gives you the best of both worlds. You don’t need any external hot water cylinders or tanks with this boiler, so you save space. And you can great hot water performance close to that of an unvented hot water cylinder, which means it can handle two showers running at the same time. This is all possible because the Vitodens 111 has a build in hot water tank that gives the hot water more power.

Glow Worm Combi Boiler

Glow Worm are now part of the Vaillant group, so you can expect to see a lot of high quality Vaillant parts and designs filtering down to the Glow Worm range.
