Combi Boiler Payment Plan

Combi Boiler Plamns
Combi boiler payment plans allow you to pay monthly for a new A rated boiler

New combi boiler monthly payment plans

Need a new combi boiler but a one off payment is outwith your budget?

Most suppliers are now  offering new boiler installations on a monthly payment basis.  This means that you can get a new boiler and pay for it with the savings you make on your energy bills.

How does it work?

All boilers installed in homes in the UK must be condensing gas boilers. This type of system is more efficient because it preheats your cold water with exhaust fumes from your boiler’s flue via a heat exchanger before it enters the burner.

It is estimated that heating bills in the average home can be reduced by around £25 per month by installing this type of boiler. This can be costed against the payments for a new combi boiler.  So your new one starts paying for itself right away.

Get rid of your boiler cover plan

If you choose the right deal from a new boiler supplier you can cancel any boiler cover you currently have if you get a long warranty. A boiler cover plan normally costs around £12 – £20 per month.

This can also be put towards the monthly cost of a new combi boiler and you can end up paying less than you do now.

Boilers UK can find out the best deals on combi boilers in your area. We can put you in touch with 3 approved local installers who will give you three separate no obligation quotes for a combi boiler of your choice on a monthly payment plan. You then choose the best deal.

Choosing the right boiler

Before buying a new combi you there are several things you should check (in addition to the price of the new boiler and any installation costs).

  • Is your new boiler a condensing boiler? This type of functionality is mandatory for any new boiler installations in the UK as they are more energy efficient
  • Will heating controls / room thermostat come as standard?
  • kw output of  new combi boiler – the power output of a boiler is measured in kw (kilowatts).  A larger boiler will cost more than one with a lower kw output

The table below lists the size of boiler and typical kw output needed to heat water and radiators within different property types.

Property Type RADIATORS TYPICAL OUTPUT
Flat / Smaller House Up to 10 24kw
3-4 Bedroom House 15 30kw
Large Detached 20+ 35kw – 42kw
Approximate kw output required

Paying monthly with a combi boiler finance plan

The price of a new boiler can be too expensive for most of us to pay in one go.  However many families are taking advantage of a new method of replacing their old boilers.

Many suppliers have introduced pay monthly boiler plans which allow you to spread the cost of a new central heating system into smaller installments each month.

How do boiler finance plans work?

Subject to qualification you can have a new combi boiler installed with no upfront cost.  Monthly payments are made from the energy you save after your new combi boiler is installed.

A new A rated  boiler means  savings of around £30 per month in the average size family home. This means that your new boiler starts paying for itself right away.

Furthermore, if you choose a longer warranty any boiler cover plan you have will not be needed. This means more savings each year. Your new system can end up paying for itself.

  • flexible finance plans to suit your budget
  • small monthly payments
  • A rated condensing combi boiler
  • No deposit options
  • warranty included
  • No boiler cover required
  • New combi boiler from £20 PER MONTH

Through our network of approved Gas Safe installers Boilers UK can help you find the bests combi boiler deals. Leave a few details and we will put you in touch with 3 individual partners who can give you no obligation quotes .

Cost of a new boiler

Why should I replace my boiler?

It is estimated that during winter months your heating accounts for up to 60% of your energy bills. Therefore it is important that your boiler is heating your home at the lowest possible cost.

Many old boilers have a low energy rating . As a result you may be paying far more than you have to for your hot water and central heating.

Replacing your old one with a new boiler can mean savings of approximately £300 per year in the average UK home. That equates to £25 per month towards the cost of a new boiler.

Furthermore, a new combi boiler will come with a warranty of up to ten years. Therefore any boiler cover plan you currently have will not be needed. This means more savings on energy costs.

What is a combi boiler and how does it work?

A combi boiler is a central heating boiler and a water heater combined into one. It heats water for your  taps and radiators without the need for a storage tank.

This means overall they are more energy efficient than regular boilers because they provide instant hot water on an “as required” basis. As a result there’s no need to heat up a  whole hot water cylinder when you only want to use a little.

Combi boilers are also popular because they are more compact than other boiler types. Conventional gas boilers require extra storage space in your loft or cupboard.

The diagram below provides a simplified example of how a combi boiler generates hot water for your taps or central heating system.

New Combi Boiler Diagram - How a Combination (Combi) Boiler Works
Installing a new combi boiler
  • Cold water enters the combi boiler via the mains tap (Note there is no  water storage tank)
  • A sensor detects that heat is required and the burner inside the boiler is fired up
  • The cold water is passed through a heat exchanger and reaches the required temperature
  • Hot water is fed to your tap from the boiler

Advantages of a combi boiler

  • Energy efficient
  • Lowers carbon dioxide emissions
  • Only heat the amount of water that you need
  • Compact and aesthetically pleasing as they can be placed in cupboards or smaller storage spaces
  • No need for water storage tank or hot water cylinder

Condensing Boilers

Condensing Gas Boilers
Gas Boiler - Condensing high efficiency combi boiler

Condensing gas boilers function at extremely high efficiency levels because of their design.

Condensing boilers are designed to preheat water from the mains cold water tap before it is heated by the boiler’s burner.

The water is already warm so takes much less time to heat, saving on both energy and heating costs.

The condensing functionality of a boiler is a feature rather than a specific boiler type. As such, both regular boilers and combi boilers can have this functionality.

Conventional Gas Boilers

Regular gas central heating boilers work in a straightforward fashion –  there has to be enough energy generated to heat the cold water in a large tank.

By heating water via a heat exchanger – fuel, or gas, is burned and the heat passes through a compartment where a percentage heat is transferred to cold water.

This hot water is used to heat your radiators or for your hot water taps. The remainder of the heat escapes from the boiler.

This can be very expensive – especially if you only want to heat water for your hot taps, for example, as it means heating up your whole central heating system.

Energy efficient design of condensing boilers

A condensing boiler partially heats cold water before it enters the burner by means of a heat exchanger.  Technically a thermal transfer of heat occurs from the exchanger to the water, warming it up before it reaches the boiler.

Condensing boilers are A rated. This means that they function at 90% efficiency or above. They use less energy, which means that less harmful carbon dioxide emissions are released into the environment, heat your water more effectively so that your gas bills are reduced.

As much as 60% of heating costs are used to heat your boiler for hot water or warmth in the home.

Domestic Gas Boiler Efficiency Grades

SEDBUK (Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK) are the

Energy Performance Certificate for Gas Boiler
Gas boiler energy-efficiency ratings

advisory organisation responsible for the grading of boilers in England, Scotland & Wales.

The diagram shows the range of traditional energy-efficiency ratings for conventional boilers and central heating systems.

All gas condensing boilers function at over 90% efficiency, This is also the mandatory level for any new boiler installed in the UK.

Domestic Gas Boilers &  Energy Performance

The body which determines a boiler’s grading is SEDBUK (Season Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK).

Boiler and central heating performance contributes to the overall energy performance of your property and is included in any Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) or Report.

Boiler performance is measured as a percentage although the European Grading method (A-G according to energy usage performance) is also often included for consistency.

The energy efficiency of gas boilers (the free boilers available in the UK are gas boilers) is assessed on a variety of factors including –

  • seasonal conditions
  • heating usage patterns
  • housing occupancy
  • boiler storage conditions
  • where boiler is located
  • boiler insulation

Other factors deemed to affect the energy efficiency of boilers such as climate and the age of a boiler are also taken into account when assessing a boiler’s performance.

The boiler rating system is designed to be a fair and accurate method of determining boiler efficiency, regardless of manufacturer.

If you are unsure about your boiler or its energy rating you can get it surveyed by a Domestic Energy Assessor. The assessor will come to your home and determine its energy efficiency rating.
