boiler shutdown for off season
Although it's not the off season yet, I have a natural gas, two zone, hot water boiler that is used for winter time only. No pilot light, all electronic ignition. I have a seperate hot water tank for hot water.

Can I safely turn off all power to furnace/zone control switch (emergency red switch/kill switch at top of stairs) or just turn off the t/stat, or both? or just leave everything on during the off season?

Basement is dry and has a dehumidifier in case of humidity over 60%.

I have googled this question and there are a lot of different theroies out there.

Would like to throw this question out to the hvac diy community to see what some of you think about this.

Thanks in advance.

You can just turn down both thermostats.
Killing the power also works but it may just mean a dead thermostat batteries when it's time to start it up again.
