    Had the first quote back for the following.

    Ideal Vogue C32 gen2.
    Vertical flue kit + flat roof seal.
    Ideal filter.
    Honeywell Evohome for 7 radiators.
    Evohome Opentherm Bridge.
    Re-pipe gas in 22mm, approx 5 meters.
    Route cold in 22mm, approx 4 meters + stop cock.
    Remove old boiler.

    That comes to £3226.

    Other guy came round today so should get that quote in the next few days.

    Reason I'm asking is a friend is saying it sounds expensive.

    Do you have a combi boiler now or is it a cylinder?

    Cylinder, but im removing all that and fully replacing all the central heating, radiators and pipework. They will be left connecting up with the required copper pipe to the plastic I'm fitting.
    Boiler is in a different spot so needs the flue and condensate doing, to a nearby washing machine waste.

    You are being ripped off. Should not be too much more than about
    £2200.00. Shop around, you can always get it cheaper.

    Yes, but cheaper is not always better. Also the boiler is over 30kw which means it will be over a grand for the boiler alone. If you are offering that price and you can do it for that. Give the custard your details and you've got yourself a nice job there mate. :p:p You could even charge a bit more for fuel and hotels.

    I added most of the parts up to be about £1900. Then have the cost of the piping, and labour + some profit on the parts maybe. If your anywhere near Manchester and send me your details and you can come and have a look.

    £2200 wont even cover the materials . you need a quality boiler with a long reliable warranty and a good local installer who will fit it and look after you for years to come , cheap i hate that word it may survice now but you will be kicking yourself in 2 -3 years time when you get niggling problems think hard before you commit regards kop

    Im pretty keen on the first company to be honest, they offer to beat other quotes as well. But most important its a family run buisness that my dad and his dad have dealt with for years, they have a great reputation around here, have been quick to answer any questions. They would also probably be the ones i would use to service it as well.

    So far they have both said its the quickest quotes they have done, not many customers tell them everything they need to know.
