Alright, I guess I will have to live with it the way it is. On weekends I shut the boiler off and enjoy the coal stove. During week days I leave the boiler on, that way if the the temperature or wind changes signifcantly the boiler will ensure a resonable temperature in the house. If I upgrade to a coal stove that is thermostat controlled I may get brave and just leave the boiler off.
Thanks for the quick replies.
