24 volt zone heating

I accidentally left my breaker off to my 24 volt 3 zone heating system. I was away for 2 days and when I returned my house was about 80 degrees even though the 3 thermostasts were set at 60 degrees, WHY ?

    Did you turn off the right breaker?, where do you live? is the boiler itself a power pile type.....? Is there a pump on your system? did it run when you turned off the breaker? Etc... More info needed as usual. No disrespect intended, but it's like someone asking,... "I have no heat, what's the problem....;-) I had it yesterday.....

    heck of a question ...were the boiler connected to a indirect

    with constant circ stradgey on the DHW... think it might be matched to the heat loss at this time of year and was heating the home through the recirc system...?

    leave an electric appliance stove some other heat source running during that time? the heat plates on some coffee makers Pump some heat....Kids having a party while you were gone?

    Zone system

    Is it possible the zone valves are power closed and were left in the open mode when the power was turned off?

    Another thought

    Just kidding, but....Is it possible that there is about 2000 candled in the house? You know the long burning one's? WE DONT KNOW,.There is no feed back... DELETE,DELETE, DESTROY the post Carol....:-) Maybe the 2 houses nest door burned down and he is getting residual sensible heat gain??? WE DONT KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Questionable taste

    If his dog is like any of my dogs, feet are a step up.

    And some folks say that a dog's mouth is the cleanest place on earth, or something like that.
