Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Please provide all information I request as it makes it more difficult to troubleshoot something when I'm not there onsite. Essentially, you become my eyes and ears. Thanks for the opportunity to help. At the end of our dialog, you will have a chance to rate my service, but please wait until we are finished and you're satisfied you have all the information you need. Please be patient as many times we work with several customers at once.

Yes, you can bypass thermostat by taking the front part of the thermostat off the wall exposing the back part (and the wiring). With boiler power off, take the red wire on R and the white wire on W and twist the metal ends together. This will, in effect, by pass the thermostat for testing purposes.
