basebaord temp?
Is there a rule of thumb for the actual temp of my baseboard heaters?
The boiler shuts down at 190 degrees and using an infrared thermo I checked the outlet pipe and it is close to 190. The inlet side is between 160 and 175 degrees, depending on which zone is on. I guess this depends on the length of the zone. The base board heaters are between 75 and 90 degrees.

I keep mine at 180(the lowest it will go) when it's mild outside, and turn it up to 190-200 when it get very cold(<20F) out. I also installed a Beckett Heatmanager which adjusts the burn cycles according to the rate of heat transfer.
