Whole House Fans for Auburn, Grass Valley and Nevada City…
You may want to make your air conditioning system more energy-efficient, but the cost of installing an entirely new system can often be just too expensive. If this is the case, you should be looking at auxiliary installations that can work in conjunction with your current system, improving performance without the expense of a total replace project. Whole house fans are one of the best supplemental systems available. And if you live in the wonderful Nevada County area you have the benefit of warm days with cool nights.
Tankless or “On-Demand” water heaters are a great alternative to the traditional tank type water heaters of old. They provide unlimited, continuous hot water and eliminate wasteful reheating of water stored in a tank. Tankless Water Heaters require less space, and less energy than old style tank water heaters. A tankless unit can be installed as a replacement to your old tank type water heater and are easily installed as part of a remodel or in new construction.
Whether you are considering a tankless water heater to reduce your utility bills, for environmental concerns, to provide more hot water for your family or you just want the luxury of long, long, hot showers, a tankless water heater may just be the water heater for you. Long popular in Japan and Europe, demand water heaters are gaining popularity in the U.S. Old myths are being dispelled and legions of “converts” recommend them heartitly.
How does it work?
A compressor and evaporator are integrated into the electric water heater unit and the evaporator draws in ambient heat from surrounding air using two variable speed fans. Condenser coils wrap the tank all the way to the bottom to transfer this heat into the tank and heat the water.
