Question about Heating & Cooling
The problem you are having is because the circulator or one of the ciculator pumps had stopped working.
The boiler is firing to try to heat the house but because the pump is not moving the water it does not stay on for long.
Turn the water pressure back down, because the water leaking causes it to add more water and fresh water corrodes your heating system. The higher pressure will not help you to heat your house.
If your know where and what your check valves are you can manually open them to let water gravity flow through the system till you can get the pump replaced. This will get you some more heat.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!
