Hello, I am new to these posts and have a quick question. My heating system consists of a normal gas furnace, and I have water baseboard heat and radiant heat throughout my house.
When I go on vacation during the summer, I turn off the water main to my house and drain the normal pipes (bathtub, sinks, etc.)
Now for the winter, I would like to turn off the main...but I am worried about the heating pipes freezing so I would like to keep the furnace active.
What would happen if the water main is turned off and the heat is still on? Will the furnace run into problems...?
