The thermostat settings currently are LO = 130F and HI = 160F. But the furnace comes on when the water temperature guage reads 160F, and shuts off when the temperature gauge reads 185F. The temperature gauge continues to climb to about 190F after the furnace shuts off, due (I think) to the lag time for the water temp to stabilize.
Does this sound normal? Why doesn't the temperature gauge track with the thermostat settings? Should I lower the settings?
This is a Burnham V83 boiler in an oil / hot water heating system with a coil inside the boiler for hot water.
