Hot water boiler question

My daughter was having a no heat issue with one of her two heat zones. The system has a circulator and 2 zone valves.

I asked her what the service tech did,and she said he replaced the circulator valve. Am i right in thinking that he actually replaced a zone valve.
thanks

Maybe. He could have replaced the flow-control valve. He could have done a number of things.

What does the bill say he replaced? How much did the part cost and how many hours of labor was involved.

If the labor was only about an hour then I suspect that all he did was replace the zone valve power head.

I haven't seen the bill,but my daughter said it took about 15 minutes. if the other zone was working properly my thinking was the zone valve in that part of the circuit was bad.
thanks for the reply.

In fifteen minutes he couldn't have done anything more than replace the power head.

That was my belief also.
