How much does a boiler service cost in 2020?
A broken boiler is a real pain. A cold house and cold showers alone are not small issues, but during the freezing winter months they can become a real problem – especially for older or more vulnerable members of a household.
The best way to ensure that you don’t end up having to deal with one is to get your boiler serviced annually, and while the summertime can be one of the most practical times to get this done, having your boiler serviced during the depths of winter can ensure your boiler sees you and your family through any unexpected cold snaps.
A boiler service is a simple check up from a Gas Safe Engineer, which will make sure your boiler is in good working order and flag any problems with the individual components before they break and cause real issues with your central heating system.
You can pay for a boiler service as a one off payment to the engineer, who comes to perform the service, or you can take out a cover policy or insurance for your boiler that includes an annual service as part of the charge.
How much either a one off service or as part of a annual plan will vary, but Local Heroes customers typically paid between £64 and £106. Over almost 2000 boiler services carried out by Local Heroes in the past 12 months1, the median - or most common - price paid was £85.

The cost of a service will vary depending on the company you use. We are quoting prices from data we have collected from boiler servicing jobs carried out by Local Heroes tradespeople but other companies may offer different prices.
Local Heroes regularly reviews and publishes prices for common jobs as part of our Press & Media Centre. Further breakdowns of other common Local Heroes jobs, both by heating engineers and our other trades including plumbing and electrical work can be found there.
The price was taken from data of almost 2,000 boiler services carried out across the UK. The range in prices is primarily due to the time of day, the area of the country and the model of boiler.
