thank you for your time. Question is i have a burnham boiler the sysytem is working BUT i noticed when the thermestat is NOT calling for heat the relay inside the aquastat is IN [energized] and when the thermestat calls for heat the relay in the aquastat DROPS OUT [de energized] and the boiler fires up and works fine..SHOULDN'T be the opposite?? This aquastat was replaced 5 years ago and we had no problems since. again i say the boiler is working fine. thank you .

    On the clapper, out is on, in is off.
    If the heat is not on, you can gently pull the clapper and the burner and circulator will start.
