say an 8' cube with r12 insulation that's 74 f indoors on a 34 f day?

an 8" cube with 2.7 ft^2 of surface and 4 btu/h-f of cube-to-room air
conductance might keep the 8' cube with 32 btu/h-f room-to-outdoor
conductance at 74 f until the water cools to temperature t, where

                                t-34 
                 74 f  = 34 + --------  1/32
                  |           1/4+1/32          [use courier font]
                  |
   t -----www-----*-----www----- 34 f
          1/4          1/32

so t = 394 f :-)

a little faith-shaking might help.
