Question about Water Heaters
The temperature setting should not make that big of a difference. Have you checked for gas lines for leaks? You can do this by using a dishwasher soap and water mix, spray it on all the pipes and if there is a leak it will blow bubbles. Do you have a drippy faucet on the hot side? Do you have gas heating for your house?
If it is an older heater, you may want to flush out the sediment from the heater by attaching a hose to the valve at the bottom, open the valve and let the water run down a drain for a few minutes.
That said, set it at a temperature below scalding.
