How Much Will A NJ Boiler Installation Cost?
Nothing lasts forever, not even a boiler. While a typical New Jersey boiler can easily last 10-15 years or even longer, it will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Plus, today’s boilers are safer and more energy-efficient than those being installed years ago, so there are benefits to upgrading.
The issue, as with so many household upgrades, is the price. Getting a new boiler installation in NJ will be costly. Sometimes it can’t be helped, especially with an older boiler on the verge of failure, but it’s good to know the costs going in.
Understanding the Costs of NJ Boiler Installations
The amount a NJ boiler installation will cost will depend on many factors unique to your home. Just a few of these include:
The size of your home
The type of existing system installed
Where the boiler is or will be located
Whether the boiler only heats the house or also provides hot water
The condition of the chimney and ductwork
Whether your in-home pipes are still suitable for use
Plus, of course, labor costs and other associated variables such as time and distance to drive to your location.
Simply put, there’s no way for a short article like this to provide an estimate for your own NJ boiler installation which is anything but a ballpark guess. There are too many factors involved which will be unique to your situation.
Still, there are averages.
With years of experience providing heater, boiler, and AC services to New Jersey, we have a decent feel for the average costs of such installations. In conversations with other HVAC specialists in the area, it doesn’t seem like our averages are too far off from theirs.
So, broadly speaking:
Replacing an old-style cast-iron boiler
will be the cheaper scenario, but even then, costs can vary between around $5,000 and $12,000. The average for this sort of job is $7,500.
Replacing a high-efficiency condensing boiler
tends to be more expensive but pays off with lower heating bills. For these jobs, prices lately have ranged between $9,000 and $15,000, with an average of around $11,500. (That $15K job was unusually difficult.)
Again, these are only averages. If you’re interested in upgrading your boiler, or if your current one is failing, your best bet is to contact experienced boiler experts to survey your home and suggest the best course of action.
