How long should it take my hot water heater to warm to that setting after I readjust? I'm with IF - I wouldn't think it would take all day. Why don't you turn the 'stat up sometime when you'll be home for a few hours and find out how long it really DOES take? Then you can get all kind of opinions as to whether that time is too long or not.Just a note - you might want to be very careful about your hot water setting. Even 130 degree water is hot enough to inflict some pretty nasty burns, and 150 can do some serious damage. If you have young children or elderly folks in the house - even as guests - they are the most susceptible to hot water burns. Kids may not know better, they like to play in water and can get burned easily. The elderly can have reduced sensation in their hands and feet, causing burns before they are aware of the water temperature.--Peter
