Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of you situation.
Are you saying the boiler fires up when you have the heat turned down? The "thing" you're describing sounds the expansion tank. It has nothing to do with a problem related to controlling the heat temp in the house.
It sounds like you have a short in the thermostat wiring between the thermostat and the boiler. You could also have a bad thermostat.
