The Cost of Boiler Repair Services
It’s a nightmare for everyone in the house if your boiler breaks down, particularly in these winter
months. It is not just the discomfort or the inconvenience, but the expense. At 1st Choice Plumbing Heating and Drain Service we understand the concerns associated with boiler repair in NJ, so we want to break down what goes into the cost of boiler repair.
Cost of boiler repair
The cost of boiler repair is not set in stone. It varies depending on the extent of the damage. You can expect to pay less for a minor repair, such as a gas valve, replacement fan or printed circuit board and you can pay more if the repair includes serious work such as replacing a heat exchanger. It is impossible to give the exact figure on the cost of repairing a boiler because they depend on a number of things including the age of the boiler, the cause of the circuit fault and the type of boiler in your home or business.
For example, older boilers tend to cost more to repair because of the higher price of their parts. Where you are located will also effect the cost because engineers may charge differently depending on location. If you give us a call today, we will be happy to set you up with a free estimate based on the specifics of your boiler.
Breakdown of a repair cost
Some companies can charge about $60 per hour, plus VAT, but this can rise depending if the repairs are done on weekends or in the evening. You might be able to agree on the total for the repair with the help of a free estimate. A service repair usually starts with the cleaning of the boiler or resetting the pressure.
