The Engineer who fitted my new gas boiler was thorough, professional, and well-explained how the system worked. Overall  I received a first-rate service, which I would highly recommend.


How much does it cost to replace a back boiler with a combi?

You should expect to pay £3000 £5000 for a back boiler to be replaced with a combi. We recommend you speak to a small local outfit who will be a lot cheaper than British Gas and other large companies.

Are back boilers still legal?

Yes for existing properties.
The UK government have made installing new back boilers illegal since 2005 but homes with existing back boilers are ok to use them for heating.
New building regulations have made it a requirement to install only high-efficiency condensing boilers.
There are still a large number of back boilers in use across the UK.

Should I replace my back boiler with a combi?

 Combi boilers are a much better and popular boiler type for homes  because they’re able to heat hot water on demand. Also the central heating comes from from the same unit without needing an additional tank.

Is it worth replacing back boiler?

There aren’t many reasons to keep your back boiler unless you need to save up more money for the installation of a new boiler. As soon as you have the time and money to replace it, you should try and get it done since the higher efficiency will save more money.

Do back boilers need servicing?


A back boiler is open flued and draws its air from the room.

 If it is not serviced regularly it will start to produce carbon monoxide. If there is a problem with the chimney this it could start ‘spilling’ into the room

Frequently Asked Questions

Eco 4 Scheme 1

Can you sell a house with a back boiler?

Yes . There is no law against
selling a house with an old back boiler fitted.  This could potentially put some buyers off so do consider replacing it for a new combi. Dont forget there are grants available too.

Can a back boiler be disconnected?

Yes. You can have the gas supply and water supply disconnected to the back boiler. This should be done by a Gas Safe registered plumber / engineer.

What is the life expectancy of a back boiler?

Back boilers have a life expectancy of 20 to 30 years.
The risks associated with back boilers highly increase with age.
As the last back boiler installations were somewhere in the 1980s, we recommend you have it replaced for a combi sooner than later.

Are old back boilers safe?

Old gas back boilers are safe but if they have been disconnected, you should ensure that a fire is not lit as there have been reports of explosions in the past. This is due to incorrect / unsafe decommisssioning.

Can a back boiler be removed?

When a solid fuel back boiler is no longer needed we recommend you  totally remove the back boiler installation from the fireplace rather than simply disconnect it.
