Water Temperature Adjustment
The water temperature can be adjusted from 110°F to
150°F. Turn the Gas Control/Temperature Knob to the
desired setting/temperature.
Operating Modes and Settings
Standard Mode - The controller adjusts the water
heater to maintain the temperature set by the user.
Energy Smart Mode - The controller adjusts the water
temperature to the lowest temperature required to
meet the household demands. This mode minimizes
operating costs. The controller will not adjust the
temperature higher than the user's selected set point or
lower than 115°F.
Vacation Setting - The controller adjusts the water
temperature to approximately 80°F. This setting is
recommended when the water heater is not in use for
a long period of time. This effectively turns the water
heater down to a setting that prevents the water from
freezing.
