Water heater: larger and lower temp, or smaller and higher temp, energy use


Which loses more heat in storage? A smaller one running at hotter temp, or a larger one running at lower temp?

I would think the one that has the least surface area per gallon. My guess would be the larger one running at a lower temp.
