There are a lot of places that use the same practice you are mentioning. As one of your answers indicated the primary concern is not to let the boiler go into highfire. If you fire a boiler daily, a good rule of thumb is to allow the boiler to run in low fire until it starts producing steam at the given header pressure. Another thing that will help the boiler is to monitor the stack temperature, on water tube boilers don't exceed 100 degrees stack temperature increase per hour, Fire tube boilers is good not to exceed 125 degree increase per hour. Hope this helps.
