For heating engineers - it is highly inefficient to mix water this way. Mix high hot with cold, in addition to scalding. Gas boilers have the highest efficiency when heated to max 40 ° C. the higher the required temperature, the higher the flue gas temperature in the chimney, and the lower the efficiency. Those who have condensing heaters know and there is a second problem that conventional condensing boilers heat the DHW in the storage tank e.g., 66-80 degree water, which does not achieve the ideal 100% condensation. The water needs to be heated relatively slower
