Have you considered tankless water heaters?

Tankless Water Heaters

At Donald A. Gardner Architects, Inc. there are two things we know our customers will always want:

1) Multiple Design Options  2) Access to Current Housing Trends

A tankless water heater, or demand water heater gives you both: it’s was one of the hottest, fastest-growing trends, and it gives our customers a design option that they may not have previously considered. It’s also a good way to save money every month on your water bill while being environmentally friendly.

As the name implies, a tankless water heater allows you to save on standby energy losses that are associated with storage water heaters. Instead, this water is heated on-demand by a gas, electric, or propane heating device that is automatically activated by the flow of water to heat a constant supply of water. That means no more waiting around for the storage tank to fill up with enough hot water.
