    I would go with hot water it cleans faster. And can also cut down on chem. Costs I own a small 3000 psi cold washere and an enclosed truck mount trailer 3000 psi washer . The truck mount hands down cleans better and an enclosed trailer is a life saver for all my supplies and pressure tools

    Just my opinion....No need for hot water MOST of the time with residential work. Think less about psi and more about gpm(gallons per min). A great house washing rig is going to have at least 5-5.5 gpm and 3k -3.5k psi. Try and stick with the Honda gx630-690 engines. But most importantly is research research research.
