Pilots during summer

John_54 Member Posts: 17
I own a 4 floor apartment building with hot water heat. 2 Boilers side by side connected to the same return and supply pipes. I have been advised to keep the pilots burning during the summer to avoid condensation. Is this recommended practice. If so do I need to keep the pilot on in both furnaces or will one be enough. I use straight water in the system – no additives.

    save yourself some trouble

    Leave them both on. It helps the inside of the boiler's and keeps the pilot assembly's from getting plugged up.
