My heater accidentally got unplugged yesterday when I did my water change. Just plugged it back in and am starting to heat tank back up. Been consistently at 79-80 degrees for almost nine months. Temp dropped to 73.3 degrees from approximately 5pm yesterday until 5 pm today (don't know how fast). House (ambient) temp is around 69 degrees. Inhabitants appear fine (see profile for list). Question is how quickly should I increase temp back to 79-80 degrees? 1degree per couple of hours?
Thanks in advance for advice.
