need help reading the pressure gauge
I don't know how to read the pressure. I've attached a picture of the gauge on the boiler. The boiler was not on when I took the picture. Is this okay? Do I need to lower it? If so, how do I know how much?
some background - I just got finished reading Dan's book, We Got Steam Heat. My family moved into a 90 year home in central NJ with steam heat in October. We replaced the 20+ year old boiler within days of moving in. We have radiators that leak LOTS of water, banging noises, etc. After reading the book, I opened all the supply values (I thought they regulated heat so I turned some halfway, now I know that was wrong) and measured my pipes in the basement so I can buy insulation. The one thing I need help with is reading the pressure gauge so I'm posting here. I'm hoping we are on our way to a quieter house with fewer water puddles.
