When I turn on a hot tap in any faucet in my house it takes up to 2 minutes for the temp. to get 'hot'.
My hot water heater (which is about 8 years old and I'm told '82% efficient') is out in the garage. I live in Seattle so it's not -that- cold but still.
Is there something -simple- I can do to improve this without moving the heater? Or is that a stupid request?
Aside from the water waste factor, I also wonder if it wastes a lot of -heat- ($$$).
The only thing -my- un-handy brain can think of is wrapping insulation on the hot pipe all the way from the heater, under the crawlspace to each tap. I wonder what the cost/benefit is?
