Hello,

Can you clarify the question please. What kind of appliance is this? Is this an electric water heater tank?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Natural gas indirect paired with Munchkin boiler
Expert:  Francis replied 7 years ago.

Oh...Ok. I am sorry, I have no info regarding your unit. I will opt out so that the question will be open again to other experts to answer.

Thank you for using JustAnswer.

Your domestic hot water is heated by the boiler through a heat exchanger system in the hot water tank. To lower the domestic hot water to the house, the boiler thermostat has to be changed. Locate the boiler system thermostat and lower temperature there.

Do I rotate thermostate clockwise or counterclockwise. it's in a position where I can't read the dial
Expert:  Craig replied 7 years ago.
Rotate in CCW just a bit. Don't go too much or it will be drastic. This controls the hydronic heat also. Just go a little at a time until you find the temp you want.
