If you want to learn about the construction process and the steps that are taken to complete a project, you should read my blog. My name is Darren White and I've always been fascinated by the way that a construction crew can erect a building so fast. I work in an industrial park and there's always new buildings being built and I see the progress every day. A few months ago, I was at a neighborhood picnic and I started talking to a neighbor that lived down the street. It just so happened that he was a contractor that worked on the buildings in the industrial park. I asked him how the construction crew could build a huge building so quickly and he explained the whole process to me. That's when I had the idea to write a blog to explain the building process to others who are also interested.
You may have heard about tankless water heaters, which, as the name suggests, do not have tanks and instead heat up water upon demand. If your existing home water heater works well, however, you may not see the need to replace it with one of these new units. Luckily, there is a compromise -- you can continue to use your existing water heater in the rest of your home, but you can install a tankless water heater in your bathroom. These are a few reasons why this can be beneficial.
1. Prevent Other Water Use in Your Home from Affecting the Bathroom
Have you ever found that the water in your bathroom wasn't as hot as you wanted it to be because someone in the home had recently washed dishes or ran the washing machine? If so, you're sure to love the idea of installing a tankless water heater in your bathroom. Then, your bathroom will have its very own water heater that will not be affected by what is going on elsewhere in the home.
2. Accommodate a Larger Family
If you have a larger family, you might find that there is never enough hot water to go around. This can cause all sorts of arguments among your family and can require those in your household to get on some sort of schedule to spread showers -- and hot water -- out throughout the day. With a tankless water heater, however, everyone in your home can take a shower in a row without running out. Additionally, if you love to take long showers, you won't have to worry about running out.
3. Reduce Energy Consumption
Your average water heater uses a lot of electricity in order to keep enough hot water available for the entire household at all times. By switching at least some of your consumption to a tankless water heater, you can reduce energy consumption in your home. The bathroom is a great place to start, since it's one part of the home that uses a large percentage of the water that is used in the entire home.
As you can see, a tankless water heater can be a great addition to any bathroom. If you'd like to enjoy these three benefits and more, now is the time to talk to a plumber about your options. Once you do, you're sure to see that it's a worthwhile investment for this part of your home.Share
