Tankless water heaters, or on-demand water heaters, heat water without a storage tank. Tankless water heaters give you hot water more quickly than any other water heater. Water is heated as it runs through a heat exchanger (gas or electric) and is as much as 34 percent more efficient than your typical model with a storage tank, depending on the amount of water your family uses. Tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water without waiting for a tank to fill. If you want to save money and energy, this may be the right choice for you. Leland Custom Homes has experience installing tankless water heaters, and we’ll be happy to discuss the topic with you as we’re planning your home.
You can reduce your heating and cooling costs by using Icynene spray foam insulation. It will also add value to your home. Icynene is sprayed into the walls during the construction phase, but it can also be retrofitted during home renovation. Icynene forms a vapor barrier to stop convection heat loss, making your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Because the product is sprayed in foam, it reaches into cracks and crevices where insulation is typically difficult to place. Icynene won’t ever settle like fiberglass insulation, and it’s difficult for vermin to chew their way through it. Another feature is the product’s formulation that is chemical-free and environmentally friendly. Leland Custom Homes will gladly use Icynene spray foam insulation to give you an energy efficient home.
