How much do heating engineers charge in 2019?

Posted on 4/24/2019

How much a heating engineer charges depends, as with all tradespeople, on what the task is, including

  • How urgent it is
  • How long it will take
  • What parts are required.

An accurate heating engineer quote can also be difficult - especially for boilers - until the heating engineer has inspected your boiler and ascertained what the problem is. This is often due to you reporting a symptom rather than a problem – for example maybe your hot water isn’t working; a large part of a heating engineer’s job is to diagnose the problem as well as fix it.

We’ve gathered together some of the average costs of common jobs for a Local Heroes heating engineer, but you’ll notice that the prices range quite drastically because of the above point.

Remember, all heating engineers should be Gas Safe Registered and should be able to provide evidence of this qualification when asked. A malfunctioning boiler can be dangerous, so don’t take any chances when you hire someone to work on yours.
