    Should I turn the power to my combi boiler off? (Have searched) 4th Jun 13 at 3:52 PM
    Hi, basically my flatmates have been arguing over this since we moved in six months ago. One says that the boiler should only be turned on when we need hot water (shower/ bath/ washing up) and for heating (in winter, obviously it's not needed now).

    Whereas the other says to just leave the hot water function on and all the time for when we need it as.

    So does leaving the hot water, and therefore the power to the boiler, on waste electricity and gas? and would only turning it on save us much?

    Cheers ; )
