Room thermostats with oil boilers

A room thermostat will stop your home getting warmer than it needs to be as it will turn the heating on until the room reaches the temperature you have set, and then switch it off until the temperature drops.

Typically, your room thermostat should be set around 18°C and 21°C. Try turning your room thermostat down a degree or two and seeing if you are still warm enough - you could save even more on your fuel bills.

You do not need to turn your thermostat up when it is colder outside as the house will heat up to the set temperature whatever the weather. It may take a little longer on colder days, so you might want to set your heating to come on earlier in the day in the winter.
