Expelling The Myths about Continuous Flow Hot Water Australia Gas and Solar Newcastle

At Energy Smart PTY Ltd we have sold and installed thousands of continuous flow hot water systems in homes throughout the Hunter Valley. Over time we have discovered a few common misconceptions and grey areas in the minds of our customers when it comes to this type of gas water heater.

Continuous flow, also known as ‘tankless’, ‘instantaneous’ and ‘on-demand’ hot water systems are a great solution for homes with limited space, as there is no need to install a large storage tank. Their small, compact design makes them un-intrusive and means they can be simply bracketed to an external wall or recessed into a wall cavity in new homes.

This is just one of many benefits of this type of hot water system, other benefits include;

Endless hot water –continuous flow hot water systems heat the water as you need it so you will NEVER run out of hot water and you will only ever pay for what you actually use.
Precise temperature control – up to 4 temperature controllers can be installed to provide precise temperature control at the touch of a button. This eliminates the need for blending hot and cold water to reach a desirable temperature.

No pilot light to blow out – most continuous flow hot water systems have an electronic ignition. This means there is no need for a gas pilot light to remain on at all times. When you turn on your hot tap, the electricity will spark the gas burner to instantly heat your water, ultimately saving you money.

Despite these fantastic features it has come to our attention that a number of people are having trouble in the day to day operation of these gas hot water systems. As promised, these grey areas will now be explained.

As specialists in the gas industry all of our staff is aware of the following factors which can impact on the smooth operation of gas continuous flow hot water systems. Unfortunately, there are a number of retailers and installers selling these products without passing on this very important information.

Gas continuous flow hot water systems need to be installed using 3/4 inch gas and water pipes. This allows for the correct amount of gas and water to flow through the unit quickly.
Gas continuous flow hot water systems are not ideally suited for use with 5 star water-saving devices. Many of these devices restrict water flow to such a low level that pressure will build up and cause the unit to reset (leaving you with hot and cold water spikes).If you wish to conserve water, we suggest installing a 3 star water saving shower rose instead if this problem arises in your household.

Gas continuous flow hot water systems are designed to work in conjunction with temperature controllers. These controllers deliver hot water to your desired temperature without adding any cold water. By doing this you ensure an adequate flow of water is flowing through the system to keep the burner alight. Without temperature controllers installed there is the potential for too much cold water to be used – not only wasting water, but also dropping the flow of water through the hot water system below the recommended 9L/min.
Each of the above can lead to an unpleasant shower with temperature fluctuations. If continuous flow hot water systems are used and installed correctly you should have a steady flow and even hot water temperature – giving you and your family an effortless and relaxing bathing experience every day.

Sarasota Health News

It’s been some six weeks since I’ve updated the site, and now you know why: I’ve redesigned it from scratch — except for the logo at the top and my picture right here. Positive Health Wellness I figured regular readers needed something to know they were in the right place. And I love that logo.

While I love the clean, simple look of the original page — which was exactly what I requested from talented designer Malin Parker — I needed something that makes it easier to add and archive content. And I wanted something that get more stories in front of readers’ eyes as soon as they visit.

This allows me to group stories by category, so people can easily read through topics they like. It allows me to put two of the community-driven features, the health events calendar and the hospital report cards, prominently atop the page. And it allows me to build more resources like the collection of links at the bottom of the page.

I know there’s some tradeoff in readability and directness, but I think it’s worth it, and hope you feel the same way. I think we’re about 95 percent of the way there, but it’s definitely a work in progress and subject to change. Let me know what you think — that’s another advantage in the new design, the opportunities to comment on stories. And you still can send emails, of course.

The redesign came at a good time. Looking back, we launched this site at just the right time. Healthcare reform was a belligerent, confusing muddle of opinions, and I think we brought a little clarity to the picture. And there was the swine flu pandemic. While other media outlets were scaring readers with screaming headlines and overblown language, we stayed calm. We noted that the spike in cases was no sign of the apocalypse, but was tied to school reopening. And we were the first to spot and report on the downturn in cases, while other outlets were saying there was “no end in sight.”

But now healthcare reform is settled, more or less, and swine flu is mostly a bad memory (though we’re still watching the indicators). So what now?

I think it’s an opportunity to get back to the explanatory and watchdog reporting that I really enjoy. Hence the story posted today on trauma centers.

About a month ago, I was standing on the rooftop of Sarasota Memorial, watching the Bayflight helicopter land as part of an event to publicize trauma awareness month and the local hospital’s partnership with Bayfront Medical Center’s trauma center.

There were a slew of TV cameras and a couple of print reporters, and everyone dutifully reported the event for its face value. But thanks to the relationships I’ve built over the past four years here, I knew there was a bigger story, and that’s what you see today.

You’ll also see some of the site’s “greatest hits” from the past almost-year, like the hospitals-county dispute over the cost of uninsured care, the study on the relative health of Florida counties, and a feature on a family coping with ALS — all of them stories that you can find nowhere else.

So I’m going to try to keep bringing you those stories, the ones that pique my curiosity, the ones that tell you something about the cost and quality of healthcare in the community, and sometimes, the stories that strike me as simply worth telling, because they might touch you as they did me.

I’d like to see this site become a place where people can learn more about local healthcare and discuss it with others who have the same interest. So thanks for visiting, again, and come back again soon. I have a lot of stories to tell.

Developing Ways To Build Smarter

So you want to try your hand at home improvement, eh? Do you know anything about this Derby kitchens endeavor?

If these questions raise more questions than you can answer, try looking at the tips below.


If you are low on cash, but need to remodel your kitchen cabinetry, a great way to save money is by ditching cabinets altogether.

The kitchen is usually the room that sells the place. Take a look around and see if there are any inexpensive things you can do to your kitchen to make it look recently update. Get rid of that wallpaper or add hardware to your cabinets. Do whatever is simple and quick, but effective. You will be able to mention the update in you listing and buyers like seeing that.

Take your trash out at least once a day. Don’t let your trash pile in the kitchen because it attracts flies and ants as well as mold. Make sure that you don’t let your trash take over your kitchen and set aside three minutes a day when you throw it out.

Locate the studs in the wall prior to beginning to hang your new cabinets in your kitchen. Using a finishing nail to mark each stud is going to save you the time of missing the stud and having to put multiple holes in the cabinets trying to find the stud to hang them on.

Install new cabinets in the kitchen by first drawing a benchmark horizontally around the kitchen’s perimeter. Use this line as a point of reference when measuring for the installation of the base cabinets and wall cabinets. Start at the high point of the floor and draw your benchmark line.

Add a subtle new look to your kitchen or bathroom cabinets by replacing old knobs, drawer pulls, handles and hinges with new, modern hardware. These small changes can give your cabinetry a major face lift without the need to wield a paintbrush, and you can use the new hardware to accent the materials of other fixtures in the room, such as faucets or appliances.

When thinking about value in doing a home improvement, kitchens and baths are always a good bet. Home improvements are always a safe bet, but if you have a few thousand to spend, spend it on your kitchen or bathrooms because they are the areas that new home buyers are generally most interested in.

Do you now understand what makes home improvement, well, home improvement? Do you know about the different kinds of jobs and equipment now? If you now have an idea of how to answer these questions, then you have read and understand what it takes to create the home of your dreams.

General Loans Finance, Loans And Debt

Here at hotfixamerica.com we are committed to helping people find their way out of the financial hole they may have fallen into. We want you to know your options and have a place to check your information. Many people have heard of car title loans, but don’t know exactly what a car title loan is. The simplest definition can be found at Wikipedia. It states, “A car title loan…is a loan låna 30000 kr where the borrower provides their car title as collateral for a loan.”

In order to apply for a auto title loans you must own your car clear and free. Because the lender uses the car as collateral, you cannot have any liens against your car or still be making payments. Usually you must be able to prove that you can afford payments on the title loan. Lenders usually will lend up to half of the cars resale value at a large interest rate. They do not typically do a credit check, which explains the interest rate. Lenders may lend a smaller or higher amount depending on the agreement between the borrower and the lender.

Often times when your loan comes due you may finish off with a large payment or, hopefully, it works out that you paid the loan on time and get to keep your car. If the loan is not repaid, the lender has the right to take your car and sell it to pay off the loan. Often times if that is the case the lender will allow you to rollover the amount into a new loan.

You can often find car title loan companies in your local yellow pages. You might also try an online car title loan company. Often these loan companies will allow you to keep your car while you get the money for the loan. Some of the following qualifications apply to online Car Title Loans: clear title, same job for at least 12 months, phone bill and mortgage in your name, age requirements, insurance coverage, and a required monthly gross income of about $1,000. This appears to be the average requirements, although some companies differ. If you are approved for the loan, the company will usually directly deposit the loan amount into your account. Fast and easy is what these companies boast.

The Cash Loans for car titles can be pretty risky though. It may come in handy if you are in a pinch for money, but you do need to be smart and responsible with this loan. As stated before, you may loose your car, which might put you in a worse off situation than before the loan. Do your research before you decide to go through with this type of loan. Good luck and remember there is always hope!
