The optimal boiler temperature depends on a number of factors, including the type of boiler you have, the size of your home, and the climate you live in. However, as a general rule, you should set your boiler to a temperature between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius. This will provide a comfortable and energy-efficient heating environment.
Here are some additional tips for setting your boiler temperature:
- If you have a combi boiler, you can usually set the temperature directly on the boiler. If you have a system boiler, you will need to set the temperature on the thermostat.
- You can also use a smart thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature of your home based on your schedule and preferences.
- If you live in a cold climate, you may need to set your boiler temperature higher. However, you should avoid setting it too high, as this can waste energy.
- If you live in a warm climate, you may be able to set your boiler temperature lower. However, you should make sure that your home is still comfortable.
