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

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!

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

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

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
