Should I turn my boiler on during the summer?

When summer arrives, people often choose to turn their boiler off, mainly to save money and energy. However, did you know that turning your boiler off for a long time can cause more harm to your boiler? Because of this, we recommend turning your boiler now and again for at least 10-15 minutes.  This will help protect your boiler from seizing up and ensure all components are working properly.

Why should I keep my boiler running in the summer?

This option is largely based on the household and helps ensure that components do not seize up. Although turning off the heating during the summer is a fantastic method to conserve energy, you may need to depend on your boiler for water use and to guarantee everyone in your home has access to hot water.  

With this into consideration, there are a few things you need to think about before turning your boiler off, especially if it distributes hot water throughout your home. If you have a combi boiler, you can keep it on because it only uses gas when you need hot water.

Summer Mode Feature

Over the years, many newer boilers now come along with great features, and one of them includes summer and winter modes or temperature control modes. This helps reduce any wastage by only heating water a few times during the day rather than needing to switch your boiler off completely.

Many boiler brands offer this feature, and if you would like to get our professional advice on the right one for you and your home, get in touch with us today!
