Love hot showers, but hate high utility bills? Takagi tankless water heater provides an energy efficient solution for residential water heating needs. Tankless water heater technology isn’t new – it’s been used in Europe and Asia for quite some time. But it definitely has evolved. There are two types of tankless systems – point of use and whole house. Point of use systems are small heaters installed under sinks for the purpose of on-demand water heating for that specific sink. Whole house systems replace traditional water heaters, which operate by keeping a large tank of water hot enough at all times for immediate use. This involves either expenditure of gas or electricity in order to keep 50 to 100 gallons of water constantly hot. Tankless systems heat and distribute water only when needed. The compact area required for installation of the unit is significantly less than what’s needed for a tank system, one of the reasons for their popularity in Europe and Japan. Takagi heaters are 35 to 50% more energy efficient than traditional water heating systems, and are approved by air quality management agencies for their low emissions.

Equipped with a single 170-watt panel that can keep a 600 square foot room cool, the units are available in fixed or portable configurations. The GreenCore 10200 is also a hybrid air conditioning unit that can switch from solar to battery power when the need arises.

Now here’s a great idea: an odorless indoor composter for use in the kitchen - the very place where food scraps are generated! The Naturemill Automatic Composter can be hidden inside cabinetry, or the compact component sits on the kitchen floor without interrupting the workflow. It’s all so very easy. Plug it in, drop in your waste and the computer-controlled machinery does all the hard work.
