Tankless Hot Water Heater

The concept of the tankless hot water heater is on the rise due to the numerous benefits involved. Check out the reasons below why you might want to think about going for the Tankless opportunity as opposed to Traditional Hot Water Heaters..

Hot Water For Everyone
A tank water heater can only supply enough hot water to fill a bath tub and may have enough hot water left for a quick shower. With the tankless water heater you get endless hot water. Tankless water heaters heat water on demand, which means never having to worry about running out of hot water.

Hot Water For Any Size Home
Not only can a tankless water heater provide an endless supply of hot water, it can also deliver more of it for all your hot water needs.

Flexible Installation Options
One of the most obvious differences from traditional water heaters to the tankless water heater is its small size. Compact in design, tankless water heaters can be installed virtually anywhere; they can mount on a wall, and be inside or outside as well.

If you want ultra-fast hot water delivery, you can actually relocate the tankless heater closer to the fixtures you use most often. Therefore, a tankless heater not only saves you space, but can also save you water. Relocating a big, bulky tank to a location that makes more sense would definitely be a challenge.

Lower Water Heating Bills and Going Green
With a tankless water heater, you’ll save energy and therefore money. These systems can save about half the cost of your current water heating bill since there is no re-heating of water as with traditional water heaters. Compared to a tank water heater’s 60% efficiency, an 83%-94% energy-efficiency levels make tankless water heaters much more eco-friendly.

No More Dirty Tanks
With a tankless water heater, water is heated as it passes through the unit so you’re always using a fresh supply of water. As the years pass by, traditional tank water heaters start to rust and build-up scale inside the tank, which is where your hot water is stored for use. This is no longer a concern with the tankless water heaters.

Centerline Construction Chat – Interior Trim

Watch the following video to learn about Interior Trim – what it is made of, the different types, tools used to install it and more! See text version below.

Interior Trim

Interior Trim can be casing – which goes around doors and windows, baseboard – which goes around the bottom of the floor, and crown molding – which goes around the top of trey ceilings and the top of the wall, joining the wall to the ceiling.

There are a lot of options in selection of interior trim, whether your style is a contemporary, traditional, coastal or cottage – the combination of baseboard and casing creates trim that fits the style of your home. If it was a Coastal home, you would want to make sure to pick out trim that matches that style.

In the mantle shown in the video, a Poplar material, which is fluted board with an MDF material creates the beautiful outline. We build all of our custom mantles and custom bookcases, using MDF material which is a medium density fiber board and is faced with a clear Poplar. We will be building doors on this particular bookcase around the fireplace, which will create a very nice finished, custom product.

Tools of the trade – include cordless drills, air staplers and air gun nails, mini routers to put edges on particular boards and bookcases, sanders, and different types of jigsaws.

There is a lot of variety with interior trim, so choose your builder and your trim wisely, after all, it is what makes the whole package come together nicely.
