"This varies, to each certain customer, but usually, it's between 60 & 70, otherwise it can end up scalding hot.
If you have a combination boiler there will be a setting on the boiler which you can safely choose to what temperature you're like.
If you have a system boiler, you will usually find a thermostat on the hot water cylinder, which you can set at about 65- 70 Fahrenheit."
