Without the proper care, everyday activities like cooking and bathing can lead to serious scalding burns. It only takes seconds for too-hot tap water to cause serious injury, and young children and the elderly are at greatest risk.
Protect your loved ones by lowering your water heater temperature to 120° Fahrenheit. Plus, you’ll save up to 5% on energy costs for every 10 degrees you lower the temperature.
As an added precaution, consider installing anti-scald devices on water faucets and shower heads.
