Tankless water heating technologies in Habitat for Humanity homes
There are many advantages of having a tankless water heater in a home. Besides the money savings, endless hot water and smaller impact on the environment, a tankless water heater is easy to maintain and it lasts over 20 years.
Tankless water heating units are very small and can hang on the wall, thereby saving valuable floor space in a house. It is designed with replaceable parts and is built with such materials as copper, stainless steel, and aluminum so as to last a lifetime.
Energy savings is only one segment of savings—with proper care this could be the only water heater one needs in a lifetime. Is almost entirely recyclable, so if you ever decide to replace it, it doesn’t have to go to the landfill. It will not develop a corrosive leak like a storage tank water heater, saving homeowners from expensive water damage in their homes. What’s more, it maintains its efficiency throughout the lifetime of the unit.
Energy Efficiency and Affordable Housing
Habitat for Humanity Anderson County, South Carolina, bought 23 lots in the River Trace neighborhood, with the intention to build 19-21 homes -- the first Habitat neighborhood in Anderson County.
“Habitat is very careful when it comes to the energy efficiency of our homes. We want to ensure that families are able to manage ongoing energy bills in addition to all the other costs associated with home ownership”, commented Mike McCormick, vice president and technical plant manager of Bosch Rexroth division in Fountain Inn South Carolina and a volunteer advisor on Habitat’s Anderson County Board of Directors.
