Compare the Cheapest Combi Boilers and Prices
Average cost = £750
Best/cheapest price = £100 (second hand)
Combi boilers are great for small properties because all their components are condensed into a single neat, compact unit. Combi boilers are still a relatively new option, so you might find that purchasing a brand new model can be more expensive than installing a traditional system boiler. However, you can look into getting the cheapest combi boiler possible simply by expanding your horizons and looking beyond the usual retailers.
The cheapest combi boilers
- Second-hand combi boilers – on seller sites such as eBay and PreLoved you can usually find a good combi boiler for somewhere between £100 and £400 – that’s less than half what you would pay when purchasing a new unit from most retailers
- Recently reconditioned / refurbished combi boilers – users on similar sites also showcase recently reconditioned (akin to a full service) combi boilers from around £600 to £900 – still a fair mark off full price models
- Ex-showroom combi boilers – these can be purchased from many retailers and/or manufacturers for around £450 to £750 and at least come with the comforting knowledge that they are unlikely to have been used for more than thirty to fifty hours
Direct from the manufacturer
If you are a little worried about purchasing a second-hand boiler and would rather spend on the safe side, you can sometimes find great deals and extremely cheap combi boiler prices by avoiding the retailers altogether and going straight to the manufacturer. We compared three of the leading combi boiler brands to see who provides the cheapest prices when you go direct to the guys who make them:
- Baxi – £650 to £900
- Vaillant – £725 to £910
- Worcester Bosch – £730 to £1,010
Remember, anything over £1,000 and you may be able to find a brand new model for a similar or even cheaper price. Second-hand units may not be the most efficient or trustworthy models to opt for, but looking around for the cheapest combi boiler prices you can find might still pay off in the long run.
