How much should I pay for a Boiler and installation?

I need a new combi boiler, circa 100 000btu. It needs to be fitted in replacement to the old boiler which is knackered. In addition I need the Gas Pipe moved extended by about 5 metres for my new oven.

I have been quoted £1700??? This seems way too high; am I wrong?

I would never, and never have recommend a boiler that sounds italian or french, Worcester Bosch and Vaillant are reknown as the best quality on the uk market, efficiencies on new boilers are similar, more important that you have a temperature control on the hot water, and if you run a bath every day, or the washing machine running every day, as we do, then a boiler (30kw or more)with a pre heat function (and timed control of the function) are crucial. On installation, a powerflush is the optimum way to clean the system, and installation of inhibitor is also critical. Try an installer who is approved by the manufacturer of the boiler to be installed, the guarantees will be up to 5 years. The problem is, nobody is going to fit all the above criteria at 1700, combi replacement should be around 2100, convert from cylinder system to combi around 2600, this should also include fitting a Magnaclean or Boiler buddy unit to be sure of removing iron deposits (difference to boiler replacement is years with this fitted).
