Today, you can get the best of both heating methods with "dual fuel" ranges that let you mix gas and electric heat sources; for example, gas cooktop burners and an electric convection oven/broiler. Convection ovens, most often electric, use heated air to cook up to twice as fast as conventional ovens that rely on radiant heating action. You can even get a combination microwave/convection oven.
For even greater efficiency consider buying a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters only heat water when it is needed, instead of keeping a reserve of water at a constant temperature. They will save you money and space in your garage, closet or basement. Since there is not a tank, the tankless unit is a box on a wall that saves valuable floor space.
Dishwasher: Similarly to your refrigerator, your family’s lifestyle will largely dictate what type of dishwasher will be ideal for your home. Lower end models tend to have simplified controls, while more elaborate ones will have energy efficiency qualities, hidden controls, and noise reduction qualities – especially helpful in small homes or open floor plans. Dishwasher drawers are also available for smaller amounts of dishware and can save water usage when you don’t have large loads to clean.
Whether you like to dream big or you're looking for some independence, we all tend to think about what life will be like when we have our own home.
