If you're planning a boiler installation, then you're in the right place. In order to achieve the maximum benefit of a new boiler, an expert engineer will visit your home for an on-site consultation. The heating engineer will advise you on the most appropriate type and model for your home. We are accredited installers and suppliers of Worcester Bosch and Valliant boilers, but we can also install any brand and type, including Combi, System, and Conventional types of boilers.
The gas engineers will arrange for the purchase, delivery, and fitting of the chosen boiler. With the service completion, you will be given a Benchmark Log, signed by the technician. We can also dispose of your old boiler for you and offer up to 12 years of manufacturer’s guarantee that’s based on your boiler type. Other types of services that we can provide include the installation of thermostats and timers, as well as additional radiators. For your complete peace of mind, we offer a 1-year labour guarantee.
Combi boiler installation
Combi boilers are a popular choice, as they are designed to provide you with hot water on demand, where no storage tank or shower pump is needed for the system to work. This means that the installation of a combination boiler is perfect for small properties, where finding space for a water tank can be an issue.
Types of combi boilers we can fit for you:
- Gas combi boilers - Gas-fueled combi boilers are budget-friendly and convenient, provided your home is connected to gas.
- Oil combi boilers - Very energy-efficient, oil boilers are connected to an outdoor oil tank and are an ideal option for properties without a gas supply.
- LPG combi boiler - The abbreviation stands for Liquified Petroleum Gas, as you probably know. The boiler functions similarly to both an oil- and gas-fueled appliance, it’s efficient and requires the installation of a fuel tank.
- Electric combi boilers - again, this type of boiler is perfect for smaller properties, in terms of good energy efficiency, that is.
Conventional boiler installation
To install a conventional boiler, you’ll need to have enough space for a water tank, which feeds your central heating system via a hot water cylinder that heats your radiators and provides you with hot water from the tap. This type of appliance is a great option for larger homes with, say, more than one bathroom and a number of rooms that need to be heated.
System boiler installation
A system boiler functions similarly to a regular boiler minus the need to have a separate cold water storage tank. All the important elements are placed in the same unit (a pump and expansion vessel). The hot water cylinder feeds your radiators and provides you with on-demand hot water for your daily needs. The installation process is far easier than that required for a regular boiler and you definitely don’t need space in the loft for an extra water storage tank.

The age of your appliance is a definite telltale sign of whether you need to consider replacing your existing boiler. You see, once your water heating device has served you for more than 10 years, the likelihood of you encountering issues with it increases. Not to mention that older boilers are far less energy-efficient than modern models. And to note here, My Plumber can promise you that our range of appliances meets all high energy-efficiency ratings. They are reliable and cost-effective throughout their serving life.
Apart from your boiler’s age, there are a few other reasons that can prompt you to replace your old boiler. Let’s have a look at those in more detail below:
- Your boiler often needs to be repaired - It makes no financial sense if you need to spend money on repairs on a regular basis, right? The cost-effective way to go is to replace your faulty appliance if it’s prone to breakages, leaks or other issues.
- Inconvenient location of your water heating device - Upgrade your boiler if you want to gain space or move its location. Say, you want to convert your loft. Surely, your conventional boiler will hinder your plans if the cold water tank is there in the way.
- Your heating and hot water needs have changed - So, you got your dreamed extension this summer and the old boiler can’t simply meet your new heating needs. Not to mention the installation of your second bathroom that needs an upgraded hot water system.
- Inefficient boiler - It goes without saying that a new boiler model and type will have a better energy-efficiency rating. So, it makes sense to upgrade and replace your old and ineffective, cost- and energy-wise, appliance.
- Increase the saleability/rentability of your property - Well, understandably, you can win over your competitors and attract potential buyers or tenants if you offer them a property with an upgraded and modern, energy-efficient heating and hot water system.
- If your annual boiler service report reveals that it will not be budget-friendly to invest in further repairs, that's also a good time to reconsider the investment in a new boiler.

Can you install a thermostat or a timer, as well?
Yes, just specify in advance your request and we’ll make sure that the engineer comes prepared to install a thermostat/timer during the service.
What should I do to make sure that my boiler is running efficiently at all times?
Not skipping (delaying) your annual boiler inspection and servicing will, for sure, guarantee that you enjoy a safe, reliable and energy-efficient heating and hot water system.
Do I need new radiators when my boiler is replaced?
Not necessarily, providing your existing radiators have no issues. If, of course, you have outdated and faulty radiators, you better replace them as soon as possible. Bundling up the two jobs at the same time will save you time, money and hassle, as you won’t have to face the process of draining your whole system if you decide to install new radiators at a later date.
What does a magnetic filter do and should I have one installed?
A magnetic filter prevents metal debris from going into the heat exchanger, as well as clogging up your system and causing repair issues at some point in the future. Of course, particles that do not have magnetic properties will remain unaffected, hence, flushing your system when necessary is strongly recommended.
Can I book a same-day service?
Subject to availability, we’ll do our best to schedule a survey on the same day for you. You see, we do offer emergency services, however, boiler installation does not always fall into this category.
How long does it take to fit a new boiler?
There is no quick answer to this question, but based on the type of the work you can expect to have a like for like swipe done for 4-6 hours. If you need to change the position of the boiler it may take 1-2 days. If a new installation should be done to a place where previously had never been a boiler it may take 1–2 days. If you plan to change the type of your boiler, prepare to have this job done for 2-3 days. If it has to be a new type of boiler installed to a new place it may take 3-4 days. And lastly, if you change the fuel type of your boiler it may take 2-3 days.
Can a plumber fit my boiler?
Plumbers are skilled in a variety of plumbing tasks, but they aren't necessarily qualified to work on gas boilers. Some plumbers are Gas Safe registered, but this isn't always expected as standard. On the other hand, each plumber we work with is Gas Safe registered and completely qualified to install your new boiler according to the highest standards.
On average how much does it cost to have a new boiler fitted?
There are many factors that should be taken into account when calculating your quote but that’s why we offer FREE on-site surveys so you can make the right decision for your new boiler.
Will I have central heating and hot water during the installation?
This will vary from job to job. As part of our in-depth survey, we will let you know if you will be without heating and hot water so you can make alternative plans. We always do our utmost to minimise disruption during the installation process. Hot water will be off for a least one day, depending on the type of installation. If you have an electric shower or immersion heater, they can minimise the time without hot water.
What about using my other gas and electrical appliances during the installation?
It is usually possible for you to use your other gas and electrical appliances as normal during an installation except for the final gas and electrical connections when there is a short period of interruption.
What sort of guarantee will come with my new boiler?
All new boilers installed by us come with a full manufacturer’s parts and labour warranty. As a long-term accredited installer of Worcester and Vaillant boilers, many also come with a better warranty than is otherwise available. Please see your quotation for the warranty on your chosen boiler available at the moment of installation. Once the installation is complete we will register the boiler with Gas Safe and the manufacturer to ensure the validity of its warranty.
Is the powerflush part of the service?
If you’re getting a new boiler installed, the building regulations recommend that a suitable cleanse is carried out prior to the installation. This can vary from a simple system flush with clean water to a powerflush on more contaminated systems. This helps to prevent your new system from being contaminated and inhibited by the sludge and debris that was present in your old one.
