If you want to increase the water heater thermostat(s) setting(s), install thermostatic mixing valves at each point of use. The thermostat(s) on this water heater have been factory set to 120°F to reduce the risk of scald injury. Higher temperatures increase the risk of scalding, but even at 120°F, hot water can scald in a matter of minutes. If you choose a higher temperature, thermostatic mixing valves are particularly important to prevent scalding.
