Tankless Hot Water Heaters For The Home Hot water is a necessity in the home. We require it for personal hygiene, cooking, and household cleaning. Most homeowners never give their water heating system a second thought, assuming that they will have plenty of hot water on a day-in-day-out basis. However, if you are enjoying a long, hot shower and the water suddenly goes cold because somewhere else in the house someone turned on a hot water tap, you know the frustration of an inadequate hot water supply. If there is not enough hot water for family members to bathe without waiting for the tank to reheat after someone else has recently taken a shower or run a load of laundry, it may be a good time to consider installing a tankless hot water on demand system. On Demand Water Tanks Are Energy Efficient Heating the water in your home with a conventional water heater can account for as much as 30 percent of your utility bill. When compared to all the appliances, entertainment equipment, and computers that are on constantly, it is evident that your conventional water heater is demanding more energy than its fair share. Dependent on the size of your household and consumption, your conventional hot water tank, if old, inefficient or defective, could be driving your energy bills beyond the comfort level of your budget. An instant, on-demand tankless water system, is energy efficient: reducing your energy consumption by 30 to 40 percent. A tankless hot water tank operates differently than a conventional hot water tank. In an on-demand system, water is heated only when it is needed. If you want to run the dishwasher while taking a shower, there is a constant supply of hot water for every task. No more waiting for the tank to heat back up even if multiple demands are made on the system at the same time. Following the trend to build homes eco-friendly homes, green builders are installing tankless water heating systems in new home construction. Many homeowners faced with having to replace a defective conventional water tank are also switching to a tankless system. If you are contemplating replacing your hot water tank, a tankless hot water system will provide an energy-efficient source of endless hot water at an affordable price. Safety First Another important consideration when deciding to opt for installing a tankless water heating system is that this type of system is safer than a conventional water tank. A standard water tank stores water that can be a fertile breeding ground for bacteria such as Legionella. A conventional water heater must be maintained at an elevated temperature to keep this type of bacteria from multiplying. Keeping the tank hot continuously uses a lot of energy that adds to your utility bill monthly. Talk To A Professional Your professional plumbing contractor can review your floor plan and household pattern of water usage to determine if a single or multiple tankless water systems are the best plan for your home. Although a bit of periodic maintenance is required the same as with a conventional water tank, if properly installed a tankless system will last for 20 years while still maintaining its efficiency.

After you have dotted your i’s and crossed your t’s to purchase a new home, you may have a million things running through your head. You probably want to buy new furniture and throw a house warming party, but there’s a few more pertinent things that you need to address just as you turn the key to enter your new home. The first thing that you should do when you move into a new house is create a checklist using the information in this blog post. 


Inspect Your Stuff


Moving can cause some damage to your furniture and boxed up things. You’ll want to take a look at everything that’s been moved into the house and make sure that it’s completely in tact. If anything is damaged, you’ll need to file a complaint with your moving company or replace any items that were broken by the move if you were responsible.


Turn On Your Utilities


There’s a process in getting your utilities up and running. You’ll need to either have them turned on completely or just transfer their operations from the old owners to your name. 


Unpack


It’s important to unpack all of the essential things that you’ll need at your new home. These items include sheets, pillows, blankets, kitchen items and coffee makers.


Organize


Moving into a home is a clean slate for you and your organizational skills. This is the time for you to get organized and put everything in a proper place. No one wants to move into a new home and immediately have a giant mess to clean up! Take your time and put everything in the right place. If you need to purchase shelving or other organizational tools, do so at this time to help you get off on the right foot.  


Inspect The House


It’s important to check out your house from top to bottom one more time shortly after moving in. If there are any problems that weren’t there during the home inspection or any major issues that weren't revealed, you’ll need to address them at this time.


Check For Pests


If there are any pests like mice or bugs in your home as you first move in, you’ll need to take care of this ASAP. You don’t want to have an infestation on your hands just as you move into your new home. You can either take on the problem yourself or call an exterminator for professional help.  


Secure The Home


From door locks to window safety, you’ll want to check all around to ensure that your new home is safe and secure for you and your family. There’s nothing more important the the health and safety of those you love, so you want to be sure that they are indeed protected from accidents and crime.           


Enjoy Your New Life!


Moving into a new home is very exciting. You’ll want to take the time to enjoy your new neighborhood and new surroundings. This also means taking care of your own well-being and your financial well-being as well. Make a budget so that all of your monthly payments are made promptly. Now that you have “taken care of business,” you can enjoy life!     


If you're selling a home, having high quality photos is one of the most important things you can do to catch the eye of prospective buyers. Taking great photos, however, is something that requires a combination of frequent practice and knowledge of how your camera works. Sure, these days you can take a decent photo with an iPhone camera and be done with it. While that method is a good start, if you want to progress with your photography you'll eventually have to make the leap to a DSLR where you have more freedom to change exposure settings. I know what you're thinking. High quality photos means spending a ton of money on camera equipment, right? Fortunately, entry level DSLR cameras have become more affordable in recent years. To start taking great photos you'll only need four things: your DSLR camera, a tripod, a wide angle lens, and a place to practice your photography.

Step 1: Setting up

You'll want to set up the room with the right balance of furniture, decorations and natural light. Avoid decorations that are too personal (like family photos) or eccentric (no stuffed animals, preferably). Set up your tripod against one of the walls of the room. Ideally, you'll have the target of your photo illuminated by natural light coming through windows, so you'll likely be standing in front of or next to the windows. However, before you take any photos use your best judgment to determine the room's best angles. The amount of and the placement of furniture will play a large role in how spacious the room looks, but equally important is the camera angle from which you take your photos.

Step 2: Learn your camera settings

You won't learn all of the settings in a DSLR overnight, but it is important to get an understanding of the basics. In spite of the many technical improvements that have been made, the basic concept of a camera hasn't changed much over the years. The two main components that determine what your picture looks like are aperture and shutter speed. Aperture (or "f-stop") is what is used to determine how much light enters the camera. Much like your pupils dilate in the dark to let in as much light as possible, having a wide aperture will allow you to take brighter photos. Shutter speed is the amount of time the shutter on your camera is open. A slower shutter speed allows more light into the camera, creating a brighter exposure. However, due to our inability to hold a camera entirely still having a slower shutter speed creates more opportunity for your photo to become blurred from camera shake. A third important setting is the ISO. This setting is unique to digital photography because it controls the sensitivity of the camera's image sensor. The higher the number, the more sensitive. Why not just crank it up all the way then to get the best quality? Because if you set it too high the photos become grainy or "noisy."

Step 3: Practice

Now that you know the basics, start taking photos in your home using various camera settings. Play around with taking photos with different light sources on, with your camera flash on and off, and at different times of day. You'll find that there are endless possibilities when it comes to taking photos of your home.
