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.

Heating Engineer FAQs

Why should I get an oil fired boiler?

If your property is not connected to a gas main, oil boilers are a great alternative to gas boilers and more efficient than LPG alternatives. They can also be paired well with renewable sources. However, if your property is connected to the gas mains, there is generally no reason to switch to an oil boiler, as you will need to have oil delivered to an extra storage tank.

How do I get fuel for my LPG boiler?

If you choose to install an LPG boiler, you’ll need to find an LPG supplier. They’ll deliver fuel to you every time your storage tank runs low. You can even rent a storage tank from them if you don’t want to buy one. Make sure you know who your local suppliers are and where they are based.

Is a biomass boiler compatible with my existing central heating system?

Biomass boilers will work with existing central heating systems, presuming this is not decades old, whether they use radiators or under floor heating. A surveyor will check the existing system you have in place before quoting for or recommending a biomass boiler to you.

how much is a british gas boiler?

If you’re looking for a reliable or reputable source for your new gas boiler, you definitely won’t find much better than British Gas. Using a big firm like British Gas comes with a plethora of benefits , but of course there are also some drawbacks, with the boiler prices being the main one and biggest turn off for most homeowners. However, just before we delve straight in to the price, let’s look at a thing or two about the big company.

The company, “British Gas are not a boiler manufacturer as you probably would have first imagined. They’re actually a company that specializes in the installation of boilers. As a result, they’re able to install just about any type of boiler you can imagine from any manufacturer. Be it a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Style or a Baxi 600, they’re able to provide you with the cost of having these boilers installed in your home or property.

Combi boilers are perfect boilers for space-saving and this makes them very popular on the market. They’re also very efficient when it comes to heating water instantly and warm your in few minutes. The price of a new British Gas combi boiler varies on a number of factors. Generally, the installation prices of combi boilers start from £1,800. Therefore, if British Gas are to be competitive with their pricing it should also be around this price.

However, if you have a large house with several rooms with a higher demand for hot water, British Gas will most likely recommend boilers such as Worcester Bosch 440CDi and the likes. Judging from other firms in the market, the price to have these types installed should be in excess of £3,000.

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.

Do oil boilers need lots of maintenance?

Modern oil boilers do not require a lot of maintenance. OFTEC recommends that oil boilers are serviced and inspected every year. This keeps them running as efficiently as possible and will ensure any issues with your boiler are identified before they cause bigger problems. This servicing is also vital because of the increased risk of carbon monoxide leaking from a poorly maintained boiler.
