Sorry if this is not the perfect place for this but basically I have a ‘review my quote’ request. Grateful for any views.
I have had a national company come in and quote (will hopefully get some more quotes but not easy for this job) to completely replace by heating system (boiler plus ALL piping across a 4 double bedroomed house). I would love some peoples opinions as to how the quote looks. I’m in the South West.
Combi Boiler £870 (stupidly don’t know details yet but A rating and a ‘32’ size (?)
Boiler Instillation/wiring/connections etc (combi replacement) £870
All necessary system water treatment plus Magnaclean filter £280
Fitting Wireless Thermostat and 14 new TRV’s £940 (I think I have 14 radiators)
Replace all 8mm plastic microbore piping with copper piping (14 radiators, 4 double bedrooms/ensuite/large hall & lounge): £2,700
I therefore see this in two parts. Firstly the Combi boiler replacement plus valves etc etc. £2,900. And then all the piping work for £2,700.
The background to all the piping work is that I have lived with a microbore system failing on me for years. And having spent a very very hard 2 days trying to flush out one (of 4) manifold with a plumber friend only to find it blocking up again 12 months later then its at my request to replace the whole system. It’s going to be a big job and It’s probably more difficult to judge. Currently most of the upstairs radiators are virtually stone cold.
That does leave £2,900 for the boiler etc. I’m thinking that the boiler price (depending on what it is) and the installation is not daft but that the £940 for the TVR’s and thermostat fitting etc look a bit steep,
