Does boiler pressure go up when heating is on?

The pressure on the boiler increases when the heating is working. But, the boiler should not rise more than 1 bar during its heating cycle. If the boiler is heated more than 1 bar (or close to 1 bar) during the start-up, there is a good probability that there will be a failure with the expansion tank or pressure release valve.
