is it safe to add some boiled water to tapwater for water changes ?

hi

is it alright to add some boiled water to bring the temperature up when doing water changes ? i have done two water changes since i set my 200ltr tank up on the 24/11/12 i done one on the 30Th a 10ltr change and one today a 40ltr change i have been doing this with buckets of cold tap-water filled 3/4 up and topped up with boiled water from a kettle so as not to stress the fish to much witch are 3 giant giant danios to help with cycling i also add aqua plus into the buckets before adding into the main tank, i know my tank is still cycling and i have had a problem with a bacterial bloom but looks a lot cleaner after i done that water change earlier today i hope things will improve now. please let me know if i am doing the right thing where the boiled water is concerned. thanks everyone.

Are you able to control the temperature of your tap water at all ?

Is all I do, (feel with hand at faucet) to make sure water is not too cool ,not too warm.
Boiling water isn't necessary.
Just be sure and use dechlorinator with new water,preferrably,,before you use the new water in your aquarium.
