1-2 kettles full of boiled water per 20L of cold water gets my change water close enough to 25C. Other use hot water from tap, but I wouldn't recommend this (for human consumption as well as water changes!)
I empty into a watering can which goes on the garden and pour in new water with a bucket. Not very efficient though. I'm thinking of getting a long hose to siphon straight onto the garden and then possibly pumping new water back in from a reservoir with a submerisble pump. Maybe one day.
The fish don't seem to care that the tank is half full.
