You will be far better off just putting as much cold water as needed to fill the kettle to the minimum marker, have your cuppa in the comforting knowledge that you have not wasted water or energy.
it has to run for a bit before it gets warm
Take one cup of cold water and put it in the microwave.
Both the furnace and hot water heater are claimed to be 95% efficient.
However, an open flame used to warm a tea kettle is WAY wasteful. Much of the heat escapes to the local room. ... However, in warmer climes, you would be better off placing ambient temperature water from whatever source into a microwave rather then run the Air Conditioner to remove the excess escaped heat from the room.
What the heck have the last six post to do with hot water heating in a kettle or hot water heater? At first I thought a mistake occurred and accidentally posted in the wrong thread, but no, without missing a step, the discussion continued. Tss tss, no discipline.
However, I can not help but observe no one has actually addressed any of my multiple posts except to point out I should not make multiple posts.
