That would depend on how hot you heat the hot water.
In the average house you probably have an 80 - 90 degree range before
your HWH becomes a boiler, although we need probably need to factor
pressure (and the PRV) into the equation.
I remember Myth Busters removing the T&P valve and plugging to hole in
an electric water heater and building a little test house, filling the
heater, turning on the power and watching the thing take off like a
rocket blowing up the little house. ^_^

That's the best idea. The heck with all of this speculating by people

area. They could probably tell you best.
