Cost of a Boiler Replacement vs. New Boiler Costs

Buying or replacing a boiler is an investment in your home comfort. The cost depends on two factors: the size of boiler needed and labor for installation. Installation can range anywhere from $4,000 to $15,000 or more.

Boiler Replacement Costs

Labor can account for the majority of installation costs, as it requires qualified technicians. Other factors that affect labor costs include:

  • Geographic location—labor costs vary across the United States
  • Size of the system—most installers send two-person teams; a bigger project may require a larger team
  • What is being replaced—if the boiler installation includes switching from oil to gas, you may have to pay fees for an initial gas hookup, a chimney liner, and removal of the oil tank
  • Location of the boiler in your home—this impacts the amount of time it takes the technicians to complete the installation. Installing a boiler in a garage or an easy-to-access utility closet is faster than installing in an attic or crawl space
  • Removal and disposal of old equipment

A well-maintained boiler has a lifespan of 15–20 years or more, so the installation costs are an investment in your comfort for years to come.
