hot water heater
 
I am trying to figure out how to adjust my water temperature on my hot water heater. I have a Super Ultra SSU 45 and cannot figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. The reason I ask is because I have never owned a house until now and I am brand new to this. I just figured that it seemed like something I would be able to adjust rather than call someone in for help.

Thanks

Hi bonk

If you have the owners manual to the boiler, look in it for the operating control. Or it could possibly be written on it if you look at the boiler. Just remember on a hot water system, Do Not Go Over 190 deg or you could damage your system.

Good luck
Rusty

I looked..
 
The builder left me everything but the manual to this. Unfortunately I guess I will have to have someone come in. I am smart enough to know when I should not touch anything. Thanks for the reply!

Is this a boiler or a water heater.

Boiler
 
It's a boiler. SuperStor Ultra SSU 45

If it is a boiler you should set the aqua stat at 180 and the secondaire limit at 190. Just like rusty said:yes: .of course this is assuming you dont have any in floor heat.

bonk 01-01-2007 05:45 PM

Ok
 
I do not have floor heat in floor heat. I assume that you mean gradiant heating? I am still unsure of where to raise the temps taht you are talking about.
Sorry, I do not understand all of this, I am brand new.

Thanks

Inside of boiler is a aqua stat.thats where you would set the tempature.why do you think it needs to be turned up

bonk 01-01-2007 06:11 PM

The temp on everything seems to be low
 
The hot water takes a long time to reach the showers and faucets around th ehouse regardless of th eproximity to the boiler. The laundry does not seem to get a clean smell, it seems musty. I have been told that this could also be due to the lack of hot water to the washer machine.

I take it you have a boiler with a boiler mate for your hot water

bonk 01-01-2007 06:33 PM

I am not even sure what a boiler mate is

trollmastergeneral 01-01-2007 06:39 PM

can you post a picture of what you have? If you cant I would strongly sugest you have service person come to your house.

bonk 01-01-2007 06:41 PM

I can't but thank you. I guess I will have someone come in. Thanks for your posts.
