Switching to tankless water heating

When my water heater was nearing the end of it’s expected lifespan, I started thinking about converting to a tankless model.

Although we’d never had any complaints with tankless units in the past, I was interested in the benefits of a tankless alternative.

A fifty-gallon water heater measures around six feet tall and twenty-two inches in diameter. A tankless model with a similar output is about twenty inches high, just fourteen inches wide and less than ten inches deep. Our tankless unit is mounted on the wall, freeing up significant space in the basement. The tankless unit was quite a bit more expensive than a conventional tank-style water heater, and I needed to pay for installation from a professional plumber. However, I am saving money every month on water heating bills. The new water heater is far more energy efficient. There are no standby energy losses from continually reheating water in the tank over and over. The absence of a tank eliminates concerns over leaking or rupturing and potentially flooding the basement. We simply turn on a tap and have instant hot water. The water passes over a heat exchanger that warms is up as needed. There is no waiting for the water to heat up. It’s always the perfect temperature and we never run out of hot water. Because the water isn’t sitting in the tank, absorbing minerals and other contaminants, we can count on it being clean. Tankless water heaters allow for replacement parts and greater possibility of repairs. This contributes to a much longer service life. I am very happy that I made the switch.

Take breaks from working to workout

In the past month I took a huge leap of faith and left my job and friends to relocate to a brand new place with my boyfriend.

I haven’t had much time to see where this is going, but I have to say that I love my new life so far.

The best part of it right now is being able to stay at home rather than rushing off to the office every morning to stare at a computer from 9-5. I’m still doing a lot of computer work from home, but it’s far more comfortable than sharing and office with dozens of coworkers. For example, I can set the thermostat to any temperature I desire, turn on music or podcasts while I work, and take breaks without feeling judged by the people around me. I love being able to have the air set at a perfect temperature, rather than freezing my butt off because my coworkers like the air conditioning to be set too low for my liking. The other great benefit is that I can alternate between working and getting exercise, which is definitely not an option in a traditional option. Every time I start to feel chilled sitting still at my computer, I can get up and run on the treadmill to warm myself up instead of having to adjust the indoor air temperature. My internally raising my temperature, I save money on powering my HVAC unit for short amounts of time. I barely touch the thermostat, and I get to work in the comfort of my workout clothes all week long.

Need AC after running

I’ve learned that there is nothing that can combat my depression quite like running.

I’m no professional, don’t get me wrong – at most I run short distances repeatedly while I’m out with my dog – but it does wonders for my mental state and waist circumference, nonetheless.

There’s only one problem with this discovery; it gets wildly hot here during the summers, and running seems like playing russian roulette. And although the gym offers AC, I can’t drag myself there for the extra cooling benefits. Since I tend to get overheated easily, even if I’m only doing moderate activity, running out in the pounding heat of the sun is a recipe for disaster. My best course of action lately has been to wait until the outdoor air cools itself in the evening, and running while I can still see the path in front of me. Then I get home and blast my air conditioning, while I stand directly in front of the AC unit. The humidity and retained heat outside are still too much for me, and I can’t soak up enough cool, air conditioned air when I get back inside. I love to take a cold shower and feel the dehumidified air on my skin when I’m drying off – it’s such a relief from the heat stress. I can’t wait for the day when I own a treadmill and can run in my air conditioned house, with a box fan pointed directly at me; I think my lackluster running abilities will improve greatly when the air quality does!

Living in an extreme environment

I’m not saying that I would love to live in a region which doesn’t experience seasons, I actually think it would be difficult to go through the entire year with the same climate for 12 months straight.

  • However, I can tell you that it’s pretty difficult to live in an area that experiences the extremes of all seasons.

Not only do you have to own a huge collection of clothing to be prepared for anything, but you’d better invest in a quality HVAC system as well. There is no doubt that you will put your heating and cooling system through its paces each and every year. I recommend you get central heating, because nobody in their right mind has time to deal with space heaters or a fireplace as their preliminary sources of heat. It’s not a bad idea to stock up on these smaller heating options, though, because it’s also likely that your furnace will fail on the coldest day of the winter. It’s a good idea to have a routine maintenance package with your local HVAC company to try to prevent these problems. It’s also entirely necessary to have powerful air conditioning. You could find a place with central cooling, which is a great option for keeping your home continuously cool in every region. That being said, I do think there are some benefits to window air conditioning units; namely, you can cool just one room if that’s where you’ll be spending time. No matter what you choose, be ready to pay out the nose for your energy bill year round!

Various types of heating systems

I guess I’m a pretty simple person.

I don’t expect very much from life, except to be able to feed and clothe myself. Ideally, I’d also like to be comfortable wherever I reside, even if it isn’t in a particularly fancy building or I have sparse furnishings. That’s why I was pretty shocked to learn that there are more types of heating systems than the electric forced air furnaces that I’ve grown up with. Don’t get me wrong, these units work fine for the most part; you’ll be warm when you need to, and they are somewhat simple to repair by a professional HVAC company in most circumstances. The downsides are that they often smell when you first power up your furnace, you’ll have to routinely change the filtration, and they generally have two settings; on and off. On the other hand, I’ve just recently found out about radiant heated flooring, and my mind has been blown. Instead of powering up the furnace to heat the entire house, you can customize your heating experience by installing a heat source beneath your feet! The temperature is totally controllable, and you can change the settings in each room to fit your exact heating preferences. Best of all, you avoid that horrible feeling of touching your toes to a cold floor first thing in the morning. I love the idea of getting out of the shower and feeling toasty warm beneath my feet, or typing at my computer without wearing a heavy set of slippers. Even being as low maintenance as I am, radiant heating sounds fantastic.

Installed window units on top of central cooling

I guess I’m a bit of a drama queen when it comes to summertime.

I like to think that I’m level headed, but I cannot stand being overheated and sometimes go to extreme lengths to prevent being physically uncomfortable.

Pretty much as soon as May rolls around, I have my air conditioner powered up at full blast for the rest of the summer. I just can’t stand being hot and sweaty in my own home, and definitely won’t tolerate the heat at night when it prevents me from getting shut eye. That’s why I recently decided that my central cooling isn’t enough for my personal needs anymore. I went out and purchased myself a cheap window unit, which I never imagined I would do based on prior perceptions of their limited utility. However, my mind has changed since I’ve stayed at my friend’s apartment, and realized that there are some inherent benefits to cooling a single room at a time. It’s not practical to use window AC units if you plan on moving around throughout the house, but if you’re going to be stationary in one small space, it makes a lot of sense to employ a single unit to cool that room only. I’ve also realized that it helps to supplement my current central cooling unit, by adding some additional cooling power where I need it the most. Now my bedroom is like the arctic tundra at night because it’s so full of cool and dry air from my complimentary air conditioning systems, and I’m sleeping better than ever.
