Why Replacing Your Boiler Doesn’t Have To Be a Financial Nightmare

You’ve gone to fill up the bath with hot water or attempted to put your heating on in preparation for the cold mornings but have found that you don’t have access to both. That dread washes over you as you begin to realise that your boiler isn’t working and with that comes the fear that you have to cover the cost of having it replaced. You might never have had to replace your boiler before or the last time you did might have been as long as 15 years ago or more.

So, you’re faced with the problem of having to finance your new boiler but worry that it’s going to cost too much. You’re worried that you don’t know where to turn or how you’re going to heat your home, especially as you have heard so many horror stories about the cost of replacing a boiler. However, don’t worry because all is not as it may seem.

Sure, there is no denying that replacing a boiler is going to cost you but it won’t cost as much as you’ve heard it costs. What’s more, there are now more options than ever before.

Boilers Are Not As Expensive As They Once Were

The boiler market has now become more competitive than ever before and with a huge number of manufacturers trying to win over more business, they are producing more and more affordable models. You’ve got high-end models and low-end models but ultimately they do the same thing but manufacturers have been savvy with their manufacturing choices because they understand that when it comes to boiler installation and replacement, keeping their boilers affordable is a must.

Many years ago, the market was not so competitive so manufacturers could keep their prices higher but now there is an option for almost every kind of home and need, ensuring people can make savings. If you’re worried about the cost, take a look at the options and see what is out there, you are going to be pleasantly surprised when you see the variation in prices and how they are not as expensive as you thought they were!

You Have Plenty Of Choice

While we have kind of touched on this, there is more to say. You no longer have to stick with one or two manufacturers because there is now a plethora of them to pick from. At Prime Time Boilers, we work with a wide range of manufacturers when we carry out boiler installations including:

  • Worcester Bosch
  • Vaillant
  • Ideal
  • Glow Worm
  • Viesman
  • Keston
  • Hive
  • Honeywell

All of these boiler manufacturers provide a wide range of options that are designed to offer choice and value for money. As an example, a Worcester Bosch low-end boiler will cost around £1,500 while an Ideal low-end model will cost around £900, proving that there is a significant difference in price between one manufacturer and another. The good news with this is that you have the ability to weigh up your options and find a boiler that fits your needs and your budget without having to spend an absolute fortune.

There’s Boiler Finance Available

You can buy a car on finance and you can even buy a computer on finance but now you can purchase a boiler on finance. This will enable you to breathe a sigh of relief because it means that your replacement boiler is now more affordable than ever before. If you can afford to pay for the boiler outright then that’s great but not many people have this option and so, finance is a lifesaver when it comes to covering the cost.

What’s more, it allows you to broaden your options because the monthly cost and terms make it possible for you to tailor your finance package based on your circumstances. If you think you can pay more then you can pay it off quickly but you might also realise that you can pay more, allowing you to choose a better boiler that leans towards the high end of the market.

Finance is a huge positive when it comes to covering the cost of your boiler. You won’t have to dip into your savings and put that family holiday on hold because it gives you the freedom to take control of the situation. This is an option that is preferred by many because it simply means that you can choose your monthly payment and the period over which you pay it and manage your finances in a different way.

What Does Finance Involve?

The great thing about boiler finance is that you won’t be expected to put down a deposit which means that you cover the entire cost through your monthly payments. Even paying a deposit can sometimes be a problem for people but finance can help to alleviate this problem. In some instances, many people will get a loan to cover the cost of their boiler or they will use a credit card but with that comes hiked interest rates which means that you end up paying more. However, finance is available as interest-free which means that you are only paying for the cost of the boiler and nothing more. Therefore, you can expect to pay anything from around £9.99 per month.

Installation Is Competitively Priced

Of course, when your boiler eventually gives up, you’re going to be thinking about the cost of the boiler but there is also the cost of the boiler installation. Installing a boiler requires expertise as it has to be carried out safely and with a Gas Safe registered specialist. However, the cost of installing a boiler is not as high as you might think. It’s something that has to be part of the process but boiler installations can be carried out cost-effectively. However, if you have any concerns then it is always worth speaking with us to determine the cost because transparency is key when it comes to finding out how much it is going to cost to install your new boiler.

You should look for a boiler installation company that has an excellent reputation and has customer feedback because it is a process that does require professionalism and accuracy.

Essentially, a boiler replacement and boiler installations shouldn’t leave you worried or concerned. Having the ability to spread the payment and have options can change the situation from one filled with panic to one that you can control. The industry has changed and you’ve got more flexibility than ever before thanks to the range of boiler manufacturers and finance options available to you.
