My boiler seems to be turning on more often to heat my hot water

My boiler seems to being turning on sooner then it used to to heat my hot water, before I could be in the shower for 5 or 10 min before the boiler would kick on, now it seems to be 2 or 3 min then it kicks on. Could it be tat the boiler is not running to heat my houes now so the water is not heat as often? I don't have a seprate holding tank it is all one unit. Thanks

    Are you running out of hot water ?

    Since the boiler is'nt making heat as often, in the warmer weather, it may be that its cooled of a bit more than during the heating season. In other words during the winter you may have just made heat and the boiler is allready hot and ready to make domestic hot water. Once the warmer weather hits your boiler may have cooled down enough( between calls for heat)that a call for domestic hot water fires the burner faster.
