Default Hooking up to existing water and drain

So we moved into a new house and at some point it was divided into two apartments. The back room was a kitchen and still has a 220 plug for a range, hot and cold water lines and a drain coming out of the wall. At first we were going to take it all out and patch the wall, but the way things have worked out this is the best place for my aquarium and I had the brainstorm I could utilize them to help make water changes super easy. I've tried to Google aquarium+plumbing and the only results that come up are for drilling a reef tank. Does anyone have any resources for guides to hooking this up? I'd be interested in a inexpensive temperature regulator so the water is always the same temp and I just flip a valve to fill. I'd love to see how someone else has set this up.
