Hot water boiler


If it was drained. It will need filled. And the air purged/bled from the system.

If it wasn't drained. Should be fine.

Hot water boiler


I do not have to worry about any steam build up because of the water being of and maybe the boiler not being filled? automatically by the pressure reducing valve

Was it drained?

You should look to see if the guage is indicating that there is water in it.
Most auto water feed is not designed to leave water travel in both directions.
Plus, unless the pipes were disconnected, the water should not have been able to drain out anywhere. Other then if the boiler has a leak.

Check the boiler guage to see if it shows pressure.
If you have rads. Go to the highest one, and open its bleeder, and if you get water. the system is full.
