Ferrous,
The temp drop is dependent od the outside temps. We have been away for 18 days, but the temps outside have been between -10 and +15 F. Colder than normal. We can keep track of the temp of the boiler online when we're away. It is down to 82 F. right now, so it has dropped 120 degrees. We don't have as much snow as usual, so we think the heat is going down into the ground more than usual. Thanks for asking

It sits on a concrete slab, so if we had a leak, it would be noticed before long. We'll keep an eye out for any leaks. Thanks for your thoughts.

but it still means that you need some more insulation to be used on it or take another route

added insulation could be a thermal reflective lining or using composite roof insulation as it gives a higher rating for insulating

the normal regs would be by using 6" insulation just for a house but by swapping to composite 4" can be used for a higher reading of thermal retaining
