AbstractExperiments were performed to determine the net energy contribution of a domestic water system to the internal heat gain of a house. Four water usage profiles and two cold water supply temperatures were considered. For a typical water consumption schedule, it was found that, apart from the hot water tank standby losses, heat gains to the house from water usage are very small.
