High and Dry After Flood Damage

Repairing the damage done to your home after a flood can look like an overwhelming job. In most cases, it’s best to seek out the services of a professional flood damage restoration team. But when my home flooded a few years ago, I found out that there were some things that I could do myself. Books, clothes, and even furniture can recover from water damage under the right circumstances. Knowing how to prevent mold, and remove it when you find it, can also come in handy after a flood. I know that it can be a devastating event for a family. That’s why I started this blog – to share my experience with flood damage and share the things that I learned that helped me put my home back together. With both professional help, and amateur ideas, hopefully you can learn something useful from my experience.

Correcting Your Notions About Tankless Water Heater

Construction & Contractors Blog

The supply of hot water is a major factor in determining your overall comfort in your home. However, it can be difficult for homes with large families to effectively meet their hot water needs if they fail to upgrade their water heater.

Myth: A Tankless Water Heater Will Require Intensive Maintenance

While tankless water heaters can be among the most effective solutions for providing a large family with a steady supply of hot water, it may not be an option that a homeowner seriously considers if they assume that it will require intensive maintenance to keep it functional. In reality, a tankless water heater will be one of the least maintenance intensive options that you can choose. For those that want to keep their maintenance requirements as low as possible, choosing an electric tankless system will require the least care on their part.

Myth: Tankless Water Heaters Will Never Run Out Of Hot Water

Tankless water heaters will warm water on demand. This can reduce the risk of the system running out of water when your family is needing to use it. However, it can still be possible for these systems to run out of hot water if too many people are attempting to use the hot water at the same time. For example, this system could become overwhelmed if someone is attempting to shower, wash clothes and clean dishes as these combined tasks may simply require more hot water than the tankless system can output.

Myth: Noise Is A Common Complaint With Tankless Water Heaters

Having loud appliances can be very disruptive for life in your home. Homeowners may think that the water coursing through the tankless water heater's piping will make loud sounds. Yet, these systems actually produce very little noise. Furthermore, homeowners will usually have these systems installed under floors or in other areas where any noise could be suppressed.  

Myth: The Home's Entire Plumbing Will Need To Be Modified For The Tankless Water Heater

Due to the important role that a water heater will serve, it is common for individuals to assume that the installation of these systems will require major changes to the rest of the home's plumbing. Fortunately, this is not the case as it is usually possible to change the water heater without making any other significant modifications to the home's plumbing. As a result, the amount of time needed and the costs involved with making this upgrade will be minimal.
