In response to Re: setting water heater thermostats
The upper setting is almost redundent in a normally operating water heater since the lower one really determines the temperature of the tank, unless the upper one is set higher. Normally the upper thermostat setting is set at the point where you think you would be getting short on hot water so the upper element would be turned on to try to keep up with the draw down.

: any opinions out there on setting thermostats the factory is delivering too low I think I like to set the lower at 130 and the upper just a few degrees lower
