How much do Heating Engineer services cost?

There are a number of things that comes into play when determining what gas engineers can charge for a particular job.  These includes the location of the property, the reputation and size of the company, the response time and lots more. So, if you’re wondering why a simple and straightforward answer can’t be provided, then there you go. If you have a need for a gas engineer and looking to make an estimate for your project, you come to the right place! In this post, we’re going to give you a good insight into gas engineer charges in order to help you make the best possible informed decisions moving forward. 

In general, a heating engineer can charge within the range of £30 to about £100 per hour in the day based on the area of the property, the size and reputation of the company, the response time and lots more. In the UK, the average rate for a gas engineer is about £40 to £60 per hour. However, if you have a gas engineer that charges at the rate of £35 per hour doesn’t imply a lower quality of work as the area in the UK comes into play. For instance, the UK have low income areas as well as high income areas. If you happen to reside in London, you’d normally expect the hourly rate charged by gas engineers to be higher than the other areas. 

Being highly skilled tradesmen, gas engineers are generally expected to charge more than a plumber. And when you go for a gas safe engineer, this price is expected to become even higher.

Heating Engineer service qualifications and accreditations

When it comes to heating engineers, there are a large array of certifications available with most concentrating on a particular type of gas appliance. As a result, you should expect several training courses for gas engineers to vary in what they offer. The gas engineer profession is one which involves the acquisition of great and intricate skills and all works must be done to the required level of safety by the legislation. In this post, we’re going to give you a good insight into the several qualifications for heating engineers and gas fitters. Let’s take a look!

There are specific course differences which are not often very wide and may be designed to reflect the local skills demand. However, you can expect to discover similar core qualifications in many. Some of these qualifications which are the most common includes the following:

  • Core Domestic Gas Safety (CCN1)
  • Combustion Performance Analysis (CPA1)
  • Domestic Gas Central Heating, Boilers and Water Heaters ( CENWAT)
  • Domestic Gas Cookers (CKR1)
  • Domestic Gas Fires and Wall Heaters ( HTR1)

However, the two extra qualifications you’ll want to ensure you obtain at the end of any gas engineering training course includes both Gas Safe registered as well as your ACS in gas. This is due to the fact that you won’t be able to work as a gas engineer regardless of your training level without these two certifications in the United Kingdom today. In other words, you’ll need to pass your ACS and get also get on the Gas Safe Register before you’ll be able to operate as a gas engineer in the UK.

Services offered by Heating Engineer

What solutions do Heating Engineers typically provide? There are a number of jobs you could quite possibly hire a Heating Engineer for, and here are several of the most typical projects that Heating Engineer are asked to provide:

Heating Engineer FAQs

What size boiler do I need?

The size of boiler you need will depend on the size of your commercial property, how many radiators and bathrooms you have and how appliances willl need hot water at the same time. The boiler size refers to its output, which is measured in kilowatts (kW), rather than the actual dimensions. Speak to your boiler engineer about which boiler is suitable for you, as if you have more than one bathroom or a lot of people in your home a combi boiler might not suit you.

how often to service boiler?

How Often To Service Boiler?

A boiler is a vital part of any home especially if you’re in the UK. Not only does provide your entire household with hot water and keep them warm but also adds a good value to your property. Boiler repairs and replacement are both super expensive and stressful, so in order to avoid all these worries, it’s better to have your boiler serviced on a regular basis for your own peace of mind. When you call in a reliable heating engineer, it can immensely raise your boiler’s efficiency while also saving you from more expensive issues down the road.

So if you haven’t had your boiler serviced for quite some time, moved into a new house and not aware the last time your boiler was serviced or perhaps you’re just wondering how often a boiler should be serviced, then you’ve come to the right place! The short and simple answer to this question is a boiler should should be serviced once in a year, and most preferably during the summer months. However, there are a wide range of factors that comes into play so it’s always advisable to check with your manufacturer before you proceed.

According to the law, you’re required to have your boiler services on an annual basis. Failure to do so can render your boiler or home warranty void. Therefore, it’s very crucial to take down the last time your boiler was serviced and also set a reminder to book your next appointment when the time closes in.

If you happen to own an electric boiler you may not need an annual servicing. But you may still be required to perform it annually by your insurance provider.

What’s LPG?

LPG stands for liquid petroleum gas. It’s a by-product of refined crude oil. When it’s put under pressure, LPG turns into a liquid. It’s usually stored in this form. LPG is used as fuel for things like BBQs and camping stoves, as well as central heating.

What size of oil boiler do i need?

What Size Of Oil Boiler Do I Need?

When it comes to oil boilers, there are three main types - the combi, system and conventional. Within these types, you’d discover there happens to be a wide range of sizes to choose from. First and foremost, we must note that the size has to do with the amount of energy they offer to your heating and hot water system rather than the physical dimensions.

The rule of thumb is, the larger your house (which implies the more hot taps, radiators and showers), the more powerful (bigger) the oil boiler you’d require. For instance, a four-bedroom apartment with three showers occupied by a family of four will definitely need a more powerful boiler than a a bungalow featuring a single occupant.

It is, however, important to also note that it’s not all about going for the biggest oil boiler. If you decide to choose an oil boiler with a much bigger capacity that needed, not only will you be wasting money on the initial purchase as well as installation, but also lose money operating it. And in a converse scenario, if you go for the cheaper and lower-powered oil boiler in an attempt to save up some money, you’re most likely to end up with tepid radiators while also frequently running out of hot water. Hence, the importance of determining the appropriate size of boiler for your particular household before purchase.

To determine the appropriate size, determining the number of bathrooms, radiators as well as the total number of people living in the property would be a step in the right direction.

Numbers of Radiators Combi System Boiler Regular

Up to 10 24 to 27kW 9 to 18kW 9 to 18kW

10 to 15 28 to 34kW 18 to 26kW 18 to 26kW

15 to 20 35 to 42kW 27 to 40kW 27 to 40kW

does home insurance cover boiler?

Breakdowns of boilers are quite common during the winter months and are usually very expensive to repair when this occurs. According to the research carried out recently by uSwitch, repairing a boiler can cost an average of about £314 with a figure over 20 percent of homes experiencing various heating system issues last year.

To answer the question of whether or not your existing home insurance will be enough to cover the boiler breakdown, the answer is probably not. This is due to the fact that heating system faults or breakdowns is a very common occurrence and as a result of poor maintenance practices as well as a high repair cost, several insurance companies often remove it from their home insurance policies.

Generally, you’d be given an option of what is termed as “emergency home cover which is an add on or extra to your home insurance policy. Luckily, this add on is quite inexpensive and may be as little as £4 or £5 per month. Depending on your need or budget, you can also purchase the add on as a “stand alone from your current insurer or another company. However, the stand alone option is usually more expensive.

The emergency home cover normally provides coverage for the boiler repair cost and few times, the rest of the central heating system as well. Being fully aware how important a boiler can be, insurance companies usually deliver a rapid response service as suggested in the name, “emergency home cover. However, the maximum pay out for call out charges is capped at a particular amount which usually ranges from £500 and £1,000. Apart from the call out fees, the emergency cover also includes a limit on the pay out amount for future required repairs of heating systems which includes both parts labour.

Where can I put an LPG storage tank?

Your LPG storage tank will need to go outside your property, possibly underground if you have limited space. There are planning rules that restrict where you can put your tank, especially if your property is listed or on designated land. Take a look at our planning permission article to find out more.

how long does a gas boiler last?

When it comes to gas boilers, this is one of the most frequent questions that always pops up and for a good reason. When you invest a considerable amount of money to acquire and install a gas boiler in your home or property, it’s only reasonable not only to expect the boiler to warm up your home efficiently, but also to do so for a long period of time. If you’ve just bought or about to get a new gas boiler, it’s likely you won’t have to worry about getting a replacement for a lengthy period of time. Several gas boilers will last for anywhere between 10 to 15 years on the average. However in the event whereby you have an existing one that’s fast approaching the end of it’s useful life, then you should know the time go get a new gas boiler is just around the corner, and the earlier you make the purchase, the better (to avoid any surprise breakdowns that’ll leave your home super uncomfortable).

Just like any other home appliance, it’s a fact that an older gas boiler ( especially those that have been installed over a decade ago) are significantly less efficient that the new modern ones. When the older versions were manufactured is a completely different time to now as both technology and climate concerns are wide apart. So when your existing boiler is approaching the end of it’s useful life, it’ll be wise to start saving up to cover the cost of getting a new one. However, if it’s only about 5 years ago your boiler was installed, it’s highly likely to still be very efficient.

Can I stay at home while my gas boiler is being replaced?

When your boiler is being replaced you won’t have hot water or central heating. If you don’t mind this you can stay in your home, and use portable electric heaters if needed. Most installers undertake a power flush before installing a new boiler now and this can cause muck and debris from the pipework, so you may wish to get out of the way while this is happening!
