|In response to Re: Idle Hot Water Heater|
The only reason for turning it to the vacation setting is to save gas by not having to keep it hot when no one is using the water.
: Just read a post from Sylvan regarding the possible dangerous condition that exists if a hot water heater is left on for a long period of time without using it.
: I will be away for 2 weeks during an upcoming vacation. Is this too long to leave the water heater idle?
: The unit is a GE, 50gal.,gas fired with an expansion tank installed. The book indicates that the temp. setting could be turned down to VACATION for extended periods of time.
: Which is my best option?
: Thanks in advance!
