Thought I’d ask for any suggestions regarding pre-heating or tempering our cold water.
We have VERY cold water year-round (drilled well), but obviously colder in the winter. Right now (Dec), our water is running either side of 40 F from the well into the pressure tank & the basement, where the mechanicals are located, stays around 45-50F. We heat with wood on the 1st floor. The water at the kitchen sink runs about 46F.
Really, the only place we would want water as cold as it is would be the kitchen sink, otherwise somewhat tempered cold water through out the house would be fine. It would also lighten the load on the water heater.
I have thought about a tank in heated space, etc. Ideas or suggestions other than heating the basement?
