If it's pretty warm, I have to adjust the dials to around 72 on both heaters to keep the tank around 78-80. In winter, I keep the house around 62 degrees at night, as propane is very expensive. In this case, I have to adjust both heaters to around 78 to keep it in that range. I always thought I should just set it to the temp I want, and it would stay that way.
Heaters do not cool the tank. If the air temp stays over 72, then setting the heater to 72 is the same thing as unplugging it - which a lot of people do in the summer. In the winter, you have to set the heater to 78 in order to keep the water at around 78? Sounds about right....

The reason I don't unplug my heaters in summer is because sometimes it DOES get cooler than 72 at night. So I keep the heaters plugged in for that reason.
