    So you said above the aqua is set to come on at 160 and off at 180. But it actually comes on at 180 and off at 190. I do not know why the Aquastat would be that far off. Or why it would be off 20 at the low and only 10 at the high? Or is that two different Aquastats?

    But I would think that if your boiler actually turned on at 165 or 170 and off at 190 you would get what you said you were looking for. Longer on time from boiler and less cycling on/off and still have plenty of heat.
