What makes a house habitable?

Basically, there’re two factors make a house habitable or livable, electricity & water supply.

When most people in the US want fresh, clean water, all they have to do is turn on a faucet. On average in the US, direct indoor water use (water from the tap, toilet, dishwasher, etc.) adds up to about 138 gallons per household per day, or 60 gallons per person per day.

People use electricity for lighting, heating, cooling, and refrigeration and for operating appliances, computers, electronics, machinery.

Electricity use in the United States in 2018 was more than 16 times greater than electricity use in 1950.


Electrical equipments in a house.

Go solar is irresistible. Whether your motivations for going solar are economic, environmental, or personal, this sizable list of solar power benefits will have something for everyone.

1.) It’s good for the environment.

Unlike conventional power, solar produces no harmful emissions that hurt the environment. It’s a clean, renewable process that uses the most natural of all resources: the sun.

2.) It’s a solid home investment.

It’s fair to say that many of the home improvements that you will make won’t add quite the equal value to your house as the money that you put into them. Solar energy, on the other hand, will save you money from your energy bill each month.

3.) Increase your property value

Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes.

4.) Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social responsibilities are important components of an organization’s culture and values.

Broadband/CATV represents one of the most successful home subscription services ever deployed. What began as an alternative to broadcast TV, meant to bring analog television service to remote areas, has evolved into a two-way, user-controlled, on-demand system. Today’s Broadband/CATV systems may include some or all the following capabilities:

  • Improved television Quality of Service (QOS) – both analog and digital
  • High-speed internet access via cable modem
  • Interactive TV
  • Access to Hi-Definition TV (HDTV)
  • On-demand movies
  • Phone service (mainly Voice Over Internet Protocol – VOIP)
  • Home networking



Household appliances have changed people’s living method overwhelmingly in the past decades, and now, they’re trending even smarter. Most common home appliances like refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine are equipped with wifi, blueteeth and infrared, ushering in an era of intellectualization.

Air conditioning is just a switch away during the scorching summer heat. Air conditioning can be used in both domestic and commercial environments. This process is most commonly used to achieve a more comfortable interior environment, typically for humans and other animals; however, air conditioning is also used to cool/dehumidify rooms filled with heat-producing electronic devices, such as computer servers, power amplifiers, and even to display and store some delicate products, such as artwork.

Power distribution control is the main distribution point for electrical circuits in your home. It usually provides between 100 and 200 amps of power, depending on the rating of the panel. Power comes to your home from the utility company’s lines. It flows through an electrical meter, which records your electricity usage, and then into the panel. Wiring in a power distribution cabinet can be complicated, do not open the cabinet door easily if you’re not familiar with wiring.


Water supply in a house.

Hydronic radiant heating is a comfortable technology, so efficient that a heated floor can often satisfy a building’s heat loss with low-temperature fluid, even below 115F (46C). This gives radiant heating systems the flexibility to work with a variety of heat sources, including water heaters.



Electrical & pipe tools from IWISS

IWISS tools can always find themselves positions in either wiring or piping programs. There’re solar PV tools to go solar, coaxial cable tools for CATV and bandwidth, crimping tools of various terminals for household appliance & electrical cabinet maintenance, copper tube tools for air conditioning, and reliable pipe tools if you’re planning on a radiant heating or potable water system.
