I’ve been out of town the past ten days (hubby is deployed), and I turned off the heat in the house before I left (we have pex plumbing so no freezing worries, and the house with the basement essentially never gets below freezing anyway). So, I came home tonight to no heat and no hot water (the boiler heats our water, too).
It’s an oil burning boiler, not very old. We have oil.
Circuit breakers are fine.
We do have water, just not hot water.
The boiler is giving off a bit of heat, so the pilot light must be OK. The temp gauge reads 190 degrees, but only 5 psi.
I know nothing about boilers. I’m not going to freeze or anything; we have a woodstove and space heaters, but hot water would be nice.
Everything except the PSI looks normal down there. Any thoughts?
