Building your dream home? Think about how you will heat it, cool it, and create hot water

There are many different variables to consider when building your dream home. You need to decide on the design, the layout, the appliances, heating and cooling systems, whether your going to get a ductless system for heating and cooling, you may wish to install a tankless water heater, and many more things to consider.

What are the benefits of having a tankless water heater installed in your home? A tankless water heater uses less water, less energy, and is great at heating the exact amount of water you want when you want it. You never have to worry about your water heater exploding and creating a huge mess in your home and you rarely need to get it serviced besides regular maintenance. Having a tankless water heater installed frees up a lot of space in your home as well as it is about a quarter of the size of a traditional water heater unit. Hot water faster, no worry of an explosive water mess, saves electricity and water, what’s not to love. Heating water can use up to 30% of a household energy budget, that is a huge chunk of change for a hot shower.

When choosing heating and cooling options for your home you may want to skip the entire idea of a traditional furnace. Furnaces can create more dander in the air for family to breathe in even if you are vigilant about replacing your filter regularly. Furnaces require a certain amount of maintenance to keep flowing smoothly and can cost a lot to keep running during cold winter months. A ductless system installed in your home can be done in a matter of hours and can take up virtually no space in your home. These units can be costly but save you money on your energy bill in the long run. Air conditioning can be done the same way, the units can be placed within the walls, floors or ceilings of your home and cool the entire home by blowing warm air over cooling coils creating a cold air rush flowing through your home. With these fantastic units there is no need for large ducts and heavy eye sore systems outside of your home to keep them running. The new ductless system is smaller and more energy efficient then older air conditioning systems.

So when you decide to start building your dream home think of the money you will save and the modernized look and feel of a ductless system and tankless water heater. You will spend more at first but never have all the headaches attached with older appliances. There is no reason not to enjoy these modernized units in your new home.
