Here at Jenoli, we know how important it is for your home to have heating and hot water whenever necessary. So whenever you have a boiler issue, we are always ready to fix it and make repairs. And we also offer a range of boiler maintenance and servicing options too, to help prevent any boiler breakdowns. One of the problems we frequently encounter are boiler thermostat issues. From connectivity issues to sensor issues, there are a couple of things that can go wrong with your boiler thermostat. But it is also usually straight forward to resolve.
What are the signs that your boiler thermostat is not working?
So, what are the signs to look out for that indicate whether or not your boiler is working? Well, there are several, including:
- Your boiler is working but your radiators are cold. If your thermostat is not communicating to the boiler, or the thermostat settings have changed, then your boiler could think that the house has already reached the right temperature. This means that the boiler will switch on, but wont heat your home. You should contact a professional to take a look.
- Water from the boiler that is just too hot. We all enjoy a nice hot shower, but if you have lost control of the temperature of the water, and its just getting way too hot, this could be the fault of the thermostat. If your thermostat settings have changes, without your knowledge, which does occur after a power cut, your hot water thermostat could be set way too high. Lower it to 40 or 50 degrees for a more comfortable temperature. If your thermostat is already set to a low heat, then the thermostat could be broken, or the connection between the thermostat and boiler could be faulty. This will require a professional, registered engineer to resolve.
