: We had the boiler serviced in the fall but now that it's cold, and the heat comes on a few times a day, we've noticed that the water level in the gauge falls pretty quickly and within a day or two it usually kicks off the boiler until we refill the water gauge. Is this normal or is there water leaking somewhere in our house?
+++ It might be that water is leaking out - or the system is set up to throw water and steam out elsewhere. Some checkups are needed now.

: It also has the coil for tank-less hot water. The hot water temperature cycles very obviously all year - if you're in the shower it will get quite cool and then heat up until it's really hot then cool off again. You have to be readjusting the temperature constantly. Is this normal?

+++ I'd guess that your burner input is larger than needed and the boiler is therefore larger than expected, so it cycles quickly. Another thing to check. "A single pipe steam system' leaves out a LOT of information needed to find out details.
