Cost to Fix a Boiler in Glasgow

The cost to fix boilers in Glasgow can vary depending on the type of boiler, the age of the boiler, the size of the boiler, and the severity of the problem.

  • Newer cheaper makes of boilers like Vaillant often have easier-to-find and cheaper parts.  
  • Premium makes Like Worcester often have more expensive spare parts.  
  • The older a boiler the more difficult and more expensive it can be to find replacement parts.

Some Estimates of Common Boiler Repair Jobs

Common Boiler RepairsCost Estimate (Parts and labour)Repair Time Estimate

Replacing PCBs (Printed circuit board) £300 to £600 1h to 2hrs

Keep in mind that:

  • If replacement boiler repair parts need to be ordered this will usually take one sometimes 2 days.
  • In some cases, a new boiler can be a better choice than a repair

Here’s how our plumbers and engineers work out the fixed-price boiler repair for you:

First, it is important to determine the cause of the problem. If the problem is due to a faulty part on a relatively new boiler, the cost of the repair will often be lower than if the whole boiler needs to be replaced.

The size of the boiler can also play a role in repair costs. Smaller modern boilers are often less expensive to fix than larger ones.

The age of the boiler is also a factor, as older boiler models are more difficult and pricier to find spare parts for than newer models.

Finally, the severity of the problem will also affect the cost of repair. Minor issues may only require a few hours of labour, while significant problems with hard-to-source spare parts may require a day or two to fix.

Some other factors include:

– Repairs vs. Tune-Ups: Repairs are more expensive than tune-ups, but tune-ups can prevent future boiler repair costs. We offer competitive tune-up prices starting from £80.

– Gas and Oil Boiler Cleaning:  Gas and oil boilers require more frequent cleaning than electric boilers. The boiler repair cost will depend on the type of boiler and the frequency of cleaning required and is included as part of our tune-ups.

Customer Reviews

Mus fixed my boiler on very short notice(same day). Friendly service, 100% recommended. My system is 20+ years old, so agreed on getting a new one. A week later Mus removed my old boiler and installed a new one at a great price. Could not recommend enough. All completed with no mess or disruption. 23/11/23.

As a senior citizen, it's hard to find trustworthy folks. Mus was a gem. He explained everything patiently and ensured my home was warm again.

What can I say? The quick response of this team to what I thought was a minor issue may well have saved my life. When they found out that my boiler was scorched throughout inside, they made time to replace it the very next day - and in the process, found that the gas valve was leaky. Their calm and professional handling of the situation quickly resolved these problems. They also showed a rare level of respect and understanding regarding my disability. I wish more service providers were this good!

Signs that Your Boiler Needs a Repair 

If your boiler starts acting up, it’s important to get it fixed as soon as possible. Not only is a broken boiler a major inconvenience, but it can also be dangerous. Thankfully, most boiler repairs are relatively simple and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Here are some of the most common boiler repairs that you may need to make:

Replacing a broken thermostat – If your boiler’s thermostat is broken, it will need to be replaced. This fairly simple repair shouldn’t cost more than a spare part and an hour or two of work.

Noisy radiator repair – If your radiator is making a lot of noise, it may need to be bled to remove air from the pipework. This is a simple repair that will only cost labour and often doesn’t require any replacement parts.

Leaking radiator valve – A leaking radiator valve can be easily fixed by replacing the valve. This is a relatively inexpensive repair.

Full tune-up and replacement of several parts – If your boiler is more than 15 years old, it may need a full tune-up. This will involve replacing several parts, such as the burner, heat exchanger, pumps or controls. The cost of this repair will vary depending on the make, model, age and condition of your boiler.

Whichever faults have occurred in your boiler, we make sure you understand and agree on combi boiler repair costs before getting started with anything.

At Glasgow Boiler Installations, we provide a detailed quote after analysing the condition of the boiler so you do not have to face any unpleasant surprises once the work is done.

Offering Fair Charges for Emergency Boiler Repairs

We will always give you a quotation before starting any work, so you know exactly what to expect. For emergency call-outs or call-outs outside of normal working hours, we agree on a call-out fee along with the boiler repair costs with you in advance. This way, there are never any nasty surprises. So, if you need emergency boiler repairs, give us a call. We’re here to help.

FAQs - Boiler Repair Prices

What does a boiler service include?

A boiler service includes a safety check and an assessment of how well your boiler is running. The engineer will look for any signs of wear and tear and will make sure that all the components are in good working order. They will also test the flue to make sure it’s operating correctly.

Is it worth repairing a boiler?

The cost of boiler repair can vary greatly depending on the type of boiler, the age of the boiler, and the severity of the problem. In some cases, it may be more cost-effective to replace your boiler rather than repair it. However, there are many factors to consider before making a decision, such as the cost of a new boiler, the expected lifespan of a repaired boiler and the disruption caused by having to install a new boiler.

What is the most expensive part of a boiler?

The heat exchanger is the most important part of a boiler. If you are required to replace it, a heat exchanger would cost you £300 – £500 and this is just for the replacement part. It doesn’t include the cost an engineer will charge you for changing the part.

But the cost of heat exchangers varies from model to model and brand to brand. For big brands like Worcester and Valliant, the price can exceed £500

What is the most common boiler problem?

A boiler is a source of comfort and a necessity in Glasgow homes, providing hot water and central heating. But like any other appliance, it also faces wear and tear. Some of the common problems that arises in a boiler are:

  • Hot water but no heating
  • No heat or hot water
  • Boiler is leaking
  • Boiler is kettling
  • Noisy boiler (e.g. banging, whistling, gurgling)
  • Low boiler pressure
  • Frozen condensate pipe
  • Radiators are cold
  • Boiler keeps switching itself off
  • Boiler isn’t responding to the thermostat

If you’re unsure whether to repair or replace your boiler, it’s always best to speak to a Gas Safe registered engineer who can assess your boiler and advise you on the best course of action.
