US Weekly isn’t likely to come up with a builder edition of “Stars — They’re Just Like Us!” anytime soon, but if they did, it might feature Sister Hazel recording artist Drew Copeland. The guitarist, singer, and co-writer of the smash hit “All for You” has a building science degree and has been working on two houses for his family outside of Gainesville, Florida. And just like us builders, Copeland specified propane tankless water heaters for the homes’ domestic hot water, according to a profile in Plumbing Perspective.
“I’m really excited about getting instantaneous hot water with the A. O. Smith units,” Copeland says in the article. “In previous homes we had tank-type water heaters. With teenage kids, especially on hair-washing days, my chances of getting a hot shower were pretty slim. In our new house, there are 4½ baths, and a need for hot water in the kitchen, laundry room, and the summer kitchen outside and our outdoor shower. That’s a high demand, but the A. O. Smith tankless units have performed very well.”
A.O. Smith has been garnering attention for its X3 scale prevention technology since introducing it earlier this year, so it’s likely that Copeland’s choice of tankless water heater will put him in the company of even more builders in the years ahead.
