An annual central heating service costs around £80 to £100 as a one off charge, but many companies offer insurance policies which cover your central heating system for breakdown and repair and these include an annual service in the price (typically an annual cost of £160-£260 depending on the level of cover). Connecting gas cookers, ovens and/or hobs can be carried out by qualified engineers for as little as £55.

Local companies can also offer great installation skills and provide a personal service at a competitive price.
