Alpha combi boiler prices

A combination or ‘combi’ boiler heats water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap. This means that unlike a heat-only or regular boiler, you won’t need a separate hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank.

Combi boilers tend to produce good shower pressure and are also more cost and energy-efficient as the water is heated instantly rather than stored in a cylinder.

Alpha create several types of combi boiler with their cheapest, Alpha Intec2 28XE at approximately £695 and the Alpha Intec2 30SE at approximately £2,000.

How do I buy an Alpha boiler?

Alpha will not quote or sell to you directly but instead refer you to an engineer who has installed an Alpha boiler within the last six months. This is because every home is unique and an engineer will need to assess your requirements before recommending a particular type.

Once this assessment is complete, the engineer will then provide you with a quote that will state which boiler you need and how much the installation will cost. You can find out more about boiler installation by visiting our installation cost page.

You can find a list of local, Alpha-recommended engineers on their website.
