Your fancy Tankless Water Heater needs maintenance, and if you neglect this annual flush you may be destained for trouble. See this 5 minute video on how to do a vinegar flush to remove calcium deposits from your tankless unit's boiler.
I like Heat Pump Water Heaters, they heat water and they throw off cool & dehumidified air! Seems like the perfect product to have inside our Hot Texas homes. See my full review of the AirGenerate ATI 66 gallon HPWH.
Most large custom homes that I've seen are relatively in-efficient in their hot water strategy. Many homes above 5000sf have 2+ 75 gal tank water heaters with a circulation pump. I thought this 7000sf home I'm about to break ground on would be a good case study on what some more efficient water heaters might cost over a 10 year period. This is some geeky stuffy...Enjoy! -Matt Risinger
I attended a builder luncheon the other day and was blown away by this cool new shower head called the Kohler Moxie. It has a magnetic bluetooth speaker that magnet holds into a standard shower head. The sound was fantastic and I love the idea.
How long does it take for your faucet to get hot water? As you wait for that hot water a typical faucet might dump 1-2 gallons of water down the drain. The solution for this problem is a smart circulation pump. Metlund makes a great system to deliver how water to your faucets without waste.
