How Long Does A Boiler Installation Take?

Often, we don’t think about how our boiler is functioning. That is, until it starts making noises or not heating your home as it should. In this case, we often start worrying about how much a new boiler installation will cost, as well as how long it will take.

New boiler installations can take up a lot of time and disrupt your home. There are certain factors and conditions that can affect the time it takes to install your new boiler. Let’s discuss some of these factors below.

So, how long does it take to fit a new boiler?

Boiler replacement of the same type

This is the easiest and fastest type of boiler installation. If it is a simple replacement of your old boiler with a new one of the same type and model, in the same location, with all other equipment already assembled, then our heating engineer can have it done within a day or just 4-6 hours.

Installing a new boiler

Installing a new boiler from scratch can be hectic work. For a combi boiler, it usually takes about 1-2 days, as all the connections, pipes, valves, and other materials will also have to be installed. However, you can always rely on our gas-safe trained engineers to complete the work safely.

Changing the boiler location and type

If you want to change the type of your boiler, then you should know that it is the equivalent of installing a new boiler and may take 2-3 days. Changing both the location and type of your boiler is one of the longest tasks associated with boiler installations. 

This is because all of the equipment, including tanks, cylinders, gas and water connections, need to be changed. Hence, it can take anywhere from 4 days to a week to get this job done.

Before starting the work on your new boiler installation, it is wise to know how long it will take to complete this project. With so many things to consider, it is best to get advice from a certified heating engineer.
