Is hot water needed for dishwasher, or does it heat cold water?
I have a 40 gallon water heater in a closet in my kitchen which only supplies water to the kitchen area (there is another water heater for the bathrooms, laundry). In doing my kitchen remodel, we are considering a few different options...tankless in the same location, tankless in a different location, smaller tank, etc.
I hadn't thought of it, but recently read something about dishwahers heating water and was wondering...is there a hot water line to the dishwasher, or does it heat cold water??
If it heats cold water, my hot water needs are obviously much less and that would affect my decision :-)
Anyone know? Thanks!
