Cost Of Repairing Boilers

The boiler is the most important heating system in your home. It comes as a solid fuel, gas, oil, or electric model and can be expensive if you have to replace it. When there is a problem with it you should look into the cost of repairing it.

Replacing the boiler should be a backup plan when you have no other option. You could end spend as little as $50 or as much as $3,000. The cost of the repair will be dependent on:

  • Where you live
  • If the unit must be moved and the pipes installed somewhere new
  • If essential building work is needed
  • If electrical work needs to be repaired or new ones installed
  • The capacity of the heat generator
  • The fuel that is being used
  • Hiring a professional

Adding Up The Cost

The biggest cost that you will spend on repairing the boiler will come from the part that is broken. The bigger and more important the part is the more money you will spend. You could order these parts through the manufacturer or try to find something at a home improvement store.

Another factor in the cost is the amount of money you will spend on hiring a professional to inspect the unit and to repair it. This will vary depending on who you work through and how much they charge. Call up a few different ones in the area and compare the prices and the reputation of each one.
