We just had a new steam boiler installed and it is working great; all radiators are hot when the heat turns on etc.
One thing I noticed though is that the site glass for the water level reads too high when the boiler is off:
notice the water level is above even being visible in the sight glass.
When running the water level is within the recommended range:
I've tried draining the boiler when it is off to bring the water level down, but when the boiler fires up, the water level goes lower, hovering around the lowest acceptable level. This triggers the auto-feeder, and I end up back where I started.
So the question is, is this ok? Or should I try to tweak the auto-feeder?
FWIW, it is a Utica pg-150 which seems to have plenty of capacity for our 1600 sqft home, and is of a similar capacity to the one another heating and cooling company quoted.
