The On-Demand Water Heater: Worth It?

Monday, December 4th, 2023

For decades, homeowners had one basic choice when it came to water heaters: storage tank water heaters. You know the type, because you probably have one working away in your house right now. The water heater stores a tank of water kept at the appropriate temperature, periodically running to replace lost heat so the water is ready for use when a tap comes on.

Today, there’s another water heater option that’s becoming increasingly popular: the on-demand water heater, also known as a tankless water heater. If you’re considering replacing your current water heater, you might be curious about making the leap to an on-demand water heater in Tampa, FL

We’re glad to help you—starting with looking at whether an on-demand water heater is worth the investment.

How Hard Water Affects Your Home

Monday, September 25th, 2023

Living in Tampa can sometimes feel like living in a vacation paradise, but there are some downsides. One is hard water, which means water with a high level of dissolved minerals, specifically magnesium and calcium. The water hardness in Tampa is classified as “very hard.” According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), water is “very hard” if it has a concentration of more than 180 milligrams of calcium per liter.

Before you panic, you need to know that hard water isn’t dangerous to drink. The minerals in hard water are natural and found in many foods and liquids you regularly consume. In fact, you never want these minerals completely absent from your drinking water, since they help with your daily intake.

We offer installation of water softeners in Tampa, FL that can reduce hard water levels in homes. You might wonder why you would need to soften your water if it’s perfectly safe to drink. There are some good reasons: extremely hard water doesn’t affect your body, but it can do terrible things to parts of your house.
