Oil Boiler Prices in Northampton
Because many parts of Northamptonshire, including Wellingborough, Corby and Kettering are off the national gas grid, oil boilers are of increased interest to those who are shopping for new boilers in Northampton. There are wide areas where the percentage of coverage is less than 10%.
For example, outer areas of Crick are notoriously remote from the gas grid. The boundary area of Daventry 001C (Government’s Open Data map are reference) is a good representation of a typical Northamptonshire affluent rural parcel of land. It contains 789 properties and only 4.9% are connected to gas grid.
Fuel poverty rate is only 9% which is much lower than elsewhere in the UK. 576 properties are owned or mortgaged and only 56 properties are under social or council rent.
This being a rural area, it won’t come as a surprise that there are only 7 flats which is less than 1%. This is good news for oil boiler installers – lots of detached houses that have virtually no chance of ever being connected to the gas pipework. More than half of the properties in the 001C are more than a mile away from the closest gas point, so it’s unlikely they will ever get a chance to own a gas central heating boiler in the next couple of decades.
Although new oil boilers is the easy and obvious choice for such homeowners, the alternative electric combi boilers are trending. We have installed quite a few new electric boilers in remote Northamptonshire. Looking back at our example area – 86 electric boilers installed, which equates to 11% households with electric boilers. This would’ve been impossible a few years ago as electric heating has not been historically popular in the uK. With UV cells and wind generators becoming popular, electric heating is becoming increasingly popular. It is possible that one day they will emerge ahead of the gas boilers and oil boilers as the go-to combi boiler type. However, in the meantime, we’re quite happy that we can offer our clients a choice between three well established types of boilers.
Average boiler prices are given in the table below and may be slightly higher than national average due to the higher salaries that the commuter belt enjoys. Please keep in mind that these are only estimates because each property is unique and there are lots of factors that can influence the final price such as gas piping upgrades to larger size, installing a condensation pipe, additional flue parts or converting to vertical flue, moving the new boiler to another location among other factors.
