Everybody these days has decided to go green and help the environment. This is always a great gesture and has huge end results. Many people are building shipping container homes that do not use a lot of the world’s resources to build. It helps to save on electricity and a number of other things. I mean, if Bob Vila says it is a good idea then it probably is, right? They are made of recycled materials and really make a difference in the environment. Here is some more information on shipping container homes.
Shipping Container Homes
Shipping container architecture is the latest and greatest of all things eco-friendly. These shipping containers are made of steel and extremely durable and good for the environment. The price of shipping containers is low and cuts back on waste and other hazards. They are very strong and durable and can last for many years if they are constructed properly.
People are not just building homes but some are even building large office spaces as well. It is truly amazing what can be done with shipping containers. Some people have even created pools and gardens made entirely from steel shipping containers. Individuals have constructed living spaces both large and small and it can all be done at a low cost and a lot of creativity.
Electric Tankless Water Heaters
If have built a shipping container home you may also need a way to heat up your water. Here are some electric tankless water heater reviews to help you find one for your home. There will also be some helpful information on how to choose the best one for your currently living situation.
Usually, indoor, outdoor, propane and natural gas sub-models are available for all tankless water heaters. Needless to say that the first thing you need to decide is whether you want to use natural gas or propane as fuel. Almost always, you will have to upgrade your incoming gas pipe because tankless water heaters have 3/4” inlets. You should also make up your mind on outside installation vs. indoors installation.
Outdoors models are only good for really warm climates while the indoors units are somewhat more complicated to install because they need venting. All the new indoor tankless models I’ve seen are power direct vent that is they are sealed with no contact with the room air and take combustion air from outside and dump the fumes with the help of a fan. This is the most advanced and safe venting system when done properly and allows for horizontal venting.
Hopefully you have found this eco-friendly information helpful and will put it to use right away. There is nothing better than being able to help the environment one shipping container at a time.
