    Why British Gas? I am sure they will be expensive.

    Be prepared to remorgage if you go with BG

    Do not go with British Gas under any circumstances. You WILL get ripped off!

    As part of my families Heating business i can give you an idea
    A 33KW combination boiler is around £800-£900 purchase inc VAT
    Depending on where it will then be located you may need flue extension kits, perhaps roof flashing could possibly be between £100-£200 if required
    Go for around £100-£200 for various pipe fittings
    New time-clock and thermostat up to £100 depending on the type, wireless? etc.

    Then labourwise is entirely time dependent
    For a straight swap with little moving of pipes it can be done in a day
    Replacing an open vented system would mean removing hot water tanks and moving pipes so you could be looking at 2-3 days
    Don't expect to pay much less than £250 for a 8-10 hour day and if you do then you should be worried about the type of plummer you are employing. We charge around £330 a day inc VAT

    So in all, i would look anything between around £1800 and £2500 including VAT for a fairly standard installation but this could vary a lot depending on your specific job and what it entails

    Hope this helps :)

    EDITED some figures

    It wasn't BG but NPower, but I believe the pricing is similar...I was quoted over £2500 for a straight swap using a boiler that I could buy for £550 inc VAT!!!

    Get a local plumber to do it for you - you'll save a packet, and on top of that, I only ever hear bad things about BG installs from plumbers that I meet through work.
