Checking your thermostat is working

What you will need


Step 1

See if the time is set correctly. Is the clock working to time, or has it reset itself due to a power outage? Most modern timers keep the settings and times, however some older models can reset to midnight.

In the case of an old mechanical clock, it may have not adjusted when you changed the clocks back or forward according to the season.

Step 2

Make sure the thermostat in the room is set. Check that it is turned up and set to a warmer temperature. Remember that the radiators and boiler will not come on if your room is already up to temperature.

We suggest for test purposes you set it to maximum and turn it down again once you know your heating is working

Step 4

Go around your house and check the heating. Hover your hand over radiators to see if they are heating up and check all the hot taps are working.

Step 5

If your heating is still cold it might be time to try something else. Topping up your boiler or resting it might do the job and you can find guides on these and more all on our website.
