My boiler instruction booklet suggest 65 deg for summer (hot water only) and up to 80 deg for winter (hot water and space heating). I generally leave it at 65, as tosullivan suggest, and have no problems. Your storage cylinder need to maintain a temperature above 60 deg anyway to prevent bacterial growth.
