Shut off boiler for the summer?


I have a new Triangle Tube prestige solo 110. What should I do with this thing in the summer? I don't use the boiler for domestic hot water, just heating my house. The boiler has a power switch.

Do I leave everything on? Shut off the breaker? Shut off the switch? Shut off the boiler itself?

For now, I shut it off via the switch (not the boiler switch, the light switch) and left the ball valve on the gas line open. Thoughts?

Thanks!

shut the 120 volts to it off and you may prevent it getting a power surge/zapped in rare circumstances. most people just leave it alone.
