Water Heater Temperature


Recommended Posts

Hi Joe,

I guess you're referring to gas or oil-fired water heaters versus electric water heaters with the temps on the stat settings. I'm pretty sure that the setting marked by a triangle on gas hot water heater control valve dials is generally around 120°F and the long bar setting that comes next is about 125°F and each bar after that increases temps by approximately 5°F.

No Mike, I'm referring to electric. I don't know what the percentages are, but most that I see are a variation of the type below. I'm going to keep track of the next 10 to see just what the percentage is. That may take me till next year though, because the inspection I have booked for this Saturday will be my first in two weeks.
