Before calling BRB Heating, the following steps can be taken to turn off the boiler;
Check the thermostat:
If your thermostat is battery-operated, first ensure that the batteries are not in need of replacement. If you are certain that the batteries are functioning properly or if your thermostat is directly connected to your home's electrical system, turn the thermostat to the off position. Allow your system to cool down for a few moments and check to see if it shuts down. If your system continues to run after about three minutes, you may need to turn off the entire heating system.
What if my thermostat lacks an off switch?
The simplest solution is to set the thermostat's temperature lower than the current room temperature by at least a few degrees. If both the thermostat and the heating system are functioning properly, the heat should be turned off. If the unit does not turn off, you may need to turn off the entire system's power.
Turn off the heating system:
This is a step that many homeowners find unsettling. However, if your system's on/off switch is labeled properly, this should be straightforward. Typically, the central heating system or boiler's on/off switch is labeled. Simply flip the switch off and call us.
