Test out on a hot day

Was interested if members had a different approach to firing an atmospheric  boiler or furnace on a hot day, in order to test and inspect for spillage and draft. Just turning the Tstat all the way up doesn't work because it's already 86 F in the house.We can jump the Tstat on older controls but that's getting more tricky w/ updated Tstat controls. Does BPI have a statement on this?Thanks.  See More
