Absolute Installs Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters

One of the components of meeting the HERO energy efficient guidelines is using tankless water heaters.  A lot of builders will only install one tankless water heater, but 90% of the time Absolute Construction will install 2 water heaters to assure the water being servicing on both sides of the house.  The times only one is used is when it is a smaller house with the master and kitchen locating in near proximity to each other.

A tankless water heaters uses 30 to 50 percent less energy than units with tanks, resulting in an annual cost savings. Tankless units (also called “on demand” units) heat water only when you turn on the faucet. They usually operate on natural gas or propane. The main advantage is that they eliminate the extra cost of keeping 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank, so you waste less energy. They also offer a continuous supply of hot water, which is ideal for filling a big hot tub or a whirlpool. They’re more compact than a standard water heater and mount on a wall.

Superior Walls-The Energy Efficient Foundation

At Absolute Construction and Development we love working with Superior Walls for many reasons.  Drainage is essential with a basement.  Superior Walls sit on rock above ground with drain pipes for any water to be able to easily exit.  They are structurally sound, pre-water-proofed, pre-drilled for electrical and pre-insulated so no additional framing is needed to accommodate wiring and insulating.

Originally created as the energy-efficient alternative to traditional foundation methods, Superior Walls products have revolutionized the home building industry. Available for installation year-round in all types of weather, the foundation panels are custom-designed and built to provide warm, dry basements for homeowners – even in the harshest climates.

Whether it’s caused by a utility power interruption or weather disasters, power outages are frequent occurrences. Yet we depend on power more than ever. A power outage is more than an inconvenience.  Loss of power sends families  to motels and restaurants. Basements flood when sump pumps have no power. It’s not uncommon to have multiple power outages each winter and it is beneficial it is to have a generator wired to the house to automatically kick in to turn on pre-defined items such as refrigerator, septic, well, heat, and lights in specific rooms.
