3 quick steps to update your boiler and thermostat for Spring
We’re certainly loving the longer days & warmer nights; the array of flowers in bloom, the birds chirping away, and most importantly, the sun.
So, in time for the warmer spring temperatures, we thought we’d remind you of a few small steps to ensure your energy spend benefits, too.
Adjust your thermostat
You might want to turn down your thermostat, as the temperatures outside are slowly creeping up. Your home will retain the natural heat, meaning less need for you to be pumping the central heating once the sun sets! Your wallet will thank you, we promise.
Update your boiler clock
The daylight savings are a result of the clocks going forward at the end of March. Remember to change the time on your oven, microwave and other appliances, but most importantly your boiler. Otherwise your programmed heating settings may get out of sync!
Turn down your boiler
After you’ve updated the time on your boiler, be sure to update your programmed on/off settings. You may want to lower the amount of hours your heating is on for now, given the cold snap has passed. While you’re at it, you may want to review the temperature levels on your boiler. Most standard boilers have a control for each water and heating (these are often displayed as a bar or dial).
