Since we’re in the colder months of the year, you might not be worried about getting cold water out of your faucet, but oddly enough, there are homes where you will struggle to get cold water year round.

There are many issues that could cause your cold water to be hotter than it should be. Sometimes it could be because of the hot and cold water pipes sitting too close together, something that could be fixed by having some insulation in between the pipes.

Other times it could be due to a malfunctioning water heater that bleeds hot water into the cold water supply. It is also possible that the water gets heated up because of a malfunctioning single-handle faucet. As for which of these issues your home might be experiencing might take some figuring out. If you don’t have access to thermal imaging, you could feel the pipes near each of the possible failure points. This can tell you where the problem most likely rests.
