    Boiler pump running when no heat being called for

    I'm finding that occasionally the boiler pump will be running when no radiator is calling for heat (and the boiler is outputting none). I havent really timed it, but its just for a few minutes I think. Its not directly after heat has been called, but seemingly at random. Do some boilers run it...
