I'm renting my first house have baseboard water heat. a coil in my furnace. Is it usual for the burner to come on when your baseboard thermostats are off and there is no hot water being used? It seems to fire up hours after someone has taken a shower or washed dishes/hands. all summer this has happend. Is it regulating something in the furnace even though no ho water is being used??? Thanks
are you saying that you have hot water baseboard heat using a boiler and the boiler also heats your hot water for showers? the boiler is set to maintain a certain water temp so when you need heat the hot water is there. when you are calling for heat it will also shut the burner off for a while when the temp has been met even tho it is still circulating the water heating the rooms.
