Instant Hot Water, Everywhere In Your Home

Instant Hot Water, Everywhere In Your Home

Inspire Kitchen and Bath has a products that works with your water heater to provide instantaneous hot water at every faucet in your home!. Imagine turning on your shower and not having to wait for hot water!

From Taco’s website:

Taco technology saves thousands of gallons of water each year.
According to the Department of Energy, the average household wastes up to 12,000 gallons of water each year waiting for hot water. That’s energy, money and resources down the drain! We have the domestic hot water recirculation solutions that are right for the job, including our newest, Hot-Link.

Instant hot water. No additional plumbing or electrical!
Hot-Link is a quick, easy retrofit using the existing plumbing. Mount the valve under the sink and the pump at the water heater. The valve’s unique thermal disk technology sends cooled water back to the water heater so hot water lines remain hot.

Cleaning made easy.
There’s no need to remove the Hot-Link valve from the piping to keep it clean. Our exclusive clean-in-place design makes short work of keeping the system operating properly. Download the Hot-Link catalog page to get all the details or read more about DHW in our special section.

The Taco Hot Link is an easy upgrade to your home’s hot water heater. Watch the video below to learn where the Hot Link is installed and how it works.

Recently, a few of KBB’s Editorial Advisory Board members attended Dwell on Design, which was held in Los Angeles from June 24-16. The three-day exhibition and conference was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center and featured a variety of kitchen and bath exhibitors, product demos and educational seminars for both the trade and the consumer.

Two of KBB’s most active board members – Mike Hetherman, CKD, president and CEO of Ontario-based Willis; and Paula Kennedy, CMKBD, CAPS, a designer with Timeless Kitchen Design in the Seattle area – scoured the show floor for innovative trends in the kitchen and bath industry.

Paula’s notable trends included:
– Brass and brighter tones (above)
– Polished metal and matte black finishes on faucets
– Customization is becoming expected, demanded. Millennials and more affluent generations are driving it, and the more industries that offer it – automobile, technology – the more people assume it is available in every industry. And they don’t expect it to cost twice as much.
– One-person smaller freestanding soaking tubs
– Downsizing movement calling for multi-functional storage (below)

Selecting a Kitchen Faucet

Selecting a Kitchen Faucet

Kitchen faucet with a pull-down spray

Ready to replace your kitchen faucet? Here are a few things to keep in mind when it’s time to make your selection:

  1. How many handles does your existing faucet have, and how many do you want your new faucet to have? Most kitchen faucets have one or two.
    • There are options available if you choose a faucet that requires less holes than you have in your current sink/countertop. You could add a soap dispenser or a deck plate.
  2. Does your kitchen faucet have a side spray? If it does and you like this feature, you might consider a faucet with a pull-down spray.
  3. Do you prefer a faucet with or without a deck plate? Click the following links to view an example of each: Faucet with a deck plate, Faucet without a deck plate
  4. What finish would you like? Today’s faucets come in a wide variety of finishes including chrome, stainless, bronze, black, and many more, depending on the manufacturer.

Other resources:

Many kitchen faucet manufacturers have faucet selection guides on their website that you walk you through the process and make recommendations based on your preferences. Delta’s faucet selection guide is easy to use and is a helpful tool to get you started.
