Hydronic heat/air handler concern

We had just purchased a vacation condo in Nevada. It has a Goodman Vertical Hydronic Heat Air Handler. My concern and question is because were rarely going to be there , can i turn off the main water to the condo and turn off the thermostate for 3 to 6 months at a time without doing any damage to the Hydronic heat handler? eg.Could water sitting in the unit for a long period of time seize up the pump? Any advice on this particular unit would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Water stilling still for months generally won't seize the circ.
Here on the east coast. We don't drain or run our boilers over the summer.

Can we presume that freezing temps will not be an issue here?
