Is your water too hot? If you have a hot water tank check your cylinder thermostat to make sure it is set to exactly 60ºC/140ºF.
(To prevent Legionnaires your hot water tank must never be less than 60ºC/140ºF.)

If you have central heating, you can adjust the temperature by using a thermostat in the room you use most and the radiator valves.
In rooms you use less often turn the heating down using the radiator valves.
