Service costs for different boiler types
Your location in the UK and your choice of heating engineer are the biggest deciding factors for the cost of a boiler service. That said, the type of gas boiler you have can also play a part in determining the price. Here, we’ve outlined the typical service costs for different boiler types.
Combi boiler service costs
Combi boilers are compact, cost-effective and energy efficient and are ideal for homes where space is precious.
System boiler service costs
System boilers are common for homes that have more than one bathroom due to it being able to provide a constant hot water source with the help of a hot water cylinder.

Regular boilers (also known as heat only, open vent and conventional boilers) are common in homes that are in low water pressure areas, where you will have a hot water cylinder and water storage tank to provide hot water to multiple bathrooms.
