Pipes become cold during winter
Water sits in pipes while we are sleeping and going about our day. During winter, just like most things, you water pipes become cold. If you notice your water takes a while to become hot in the morning, however during the day becomes hot in less time, then it can simply be that your pipes are cold in the morning. Waiting a little longer means the cold water is pushed out from the taps, but it can result in water being wasted.
