If the hottest water from your shower or kitchen tap is too hot, that's an easy indicator that you need to dial down the setting on your water heater at home. Just moving it down a few degrees is not only enough to make it more energy-efficient, but it's also safer, since the members of your household won't scald themselves. The standard setting for a water heater is 140 degrees, which is very hot. Try turning it down to 120 degrees and see if that works for you and your family.
