Heating mysteriously turning on

Postby elmosmoe » Wed May 30, 2007 6:12 pm

We have a combi boiler.

Over the last few weeks, the heating hasn't been set to come on. But at occasional random times, the radiators feel warm as if the heating has been on. But it hasn't been set to.

We've never been able to catch it when it is actually on and the boiler is fired up.

What could this be?
