Heating water can account for up to 20% of your average home energy bill. With new green initiatives for energy efficiency, most people are replacing their old water heaters with new, more energy efficient models.
Storage-Tank Water Heaters
This is the traditional water heater. They are basically tall cylinders that are filled by a cold water pipe and water is heated in the tank, then distributed through a hot water pipe. These are typically fueled by gas and can run off a separate line or your already established natural gas line. Sometimes you will see these heated by oil or electric, but gas is the most economical way to heat this.
Tankless Water Heaters
These are sometimes called “instantaneous water heaters” and are often no bigger than a suitcase. They heat only the amount of water that is needed by an electric coil or natural gas. They have a longer life expectancy and are more energy efficient, but have a limited flow rate which can be an issue with larger households.
Picking a Water Heater
Water heaters are sold based on how many gallons they hold. But more importantly you want to look at the “first-hour rating” for storage-tank water heaters and “gallons-per-minute” rating for tankless. These numbers will give you a better idea of how much hot water you will get within a set amount of time.
Sump pumps are submersible pumps. They can be used in situations where basement flooding occurs or to solve dampness when the water table is above the foundation of a home. The water is pumped out of the home to a less problematic area such as a storm drain or a ditch.
Well pumps are used to extract water from a water well. This is the primary source of water for homes that are not connected to a larger water supply system, such as those typically found in cities and towns.
Fixtures & Faucets
Knueve & Sons offers a wide variety of plumbing fixtures. We work with a large local distributor who has a wonderful showroom where you can view, touch and try all of the fixtures you may need to upgrade your bathrooms or kitchen.
We suggest Kohler and Moen as two of the major manufacturers known for their quality and design aesthetic but there are many more that you will see at MacDonald Supply.
Tubs and Spas
After a long day at work, there is nothing like coming home to relax in your tub or spa. Knueve & Sons can install a wide variety of tubs and spas. We work with MacDonald Supply to offer you a beautiful showroom where you can view all of the tubs and spas that you may need to upgrade your bathroom.
