Ive read that many homes in Florida keep the water heater
in the attic, thus hettinh a noost from the ambient temperature.
It freezes here, so this wouldn't be a good set up year round.
Instead Im considering a three way junction in the cold water
One branch would travel out the basement and up the southern facing wall of the house.
When it reaches the attic, it would connect to a de
insulated 40 gallon water tank that
That tank would be painted black and sit inside an insulated box, behind a southern facing window.
From the tank, another line would return to the basement, and feed
into the cold water supply of the has water heater via a second threeway junction.
During cold months, the solar
section of pipes and tanks would be drained.
Depending on where I would need to use copper, i coukd do this fairly cheaply.
Does this seem like it would be worth thr effort?
