What Is A Tankless Water Heater?
Primarily due to the green movement, tankless water heaters have gained popularity worldwide and most recently in the United States. A tankless water heater, also known as an instantaneous water heater, is a compact wall unit that takes up less space than a standard water heater. When you turn on the hot water at the sink, for instance, cold water will travel through a pipe and into the tankless water heater, where it will then warm up either a gas or electric element that will produce your hot water.
Types of Tankless Water Heaters
Here at North Peachtree Plumbing, we understand that people who seek out tankless water heaters might have differing needs. Like most things in life, no one water heater is made alike. This is why we offer two different types of tankless water heaters: point-of-use heaters and whole-house heaters. These heaters can come in gas and electric models that you can choose from depending on factors like your personal preference, your household size, and building capabilities.
Our team also understands that looking at all of the different makes and models of heaters might be overwhelming. This is why we are here to help! We have a variety of brands to choose from in our tankless water heater installation services. Not only that, but our team of experts can help you determine the best heater for you and your home.
Before that, however, it is essential to know the differences between the two different types of tankless water heaters we offer. Here are some of the basics. For more information, call our team of water heater experts at North Peachtree Plumbing today.
Point-Of-Use Water Heaters
Point-of-use (POU) tankless water heaters are small systems dedicated to heating only one or two outlets. It is important to note that POU’s are not for whole-house use as it would take many POU heaters to supply enough hot water. Typically, a POU tankless water heater should be installed as close to the outlet you want to use as possible to avoid any lag time, the time it takes for the hot water to reach your faucet. It is most common for POU heaters to be electric.
Whole-House Water Heaters
A whole-house tankless heater is built to provide the entire house with hot water on demand and is often fueled by gas or propane, although it can also come in an electric system. This is the traditional single water heating system for the entirety of your home and is usually available in the garage or basement. A whole-house tankless water heater is generally cheaper to purchase, install and replace than using many small point-of-use water heaters.
The Positives of a Tankless Water Heater
Investing in a tankless water heater can bring significant benefits to you and your home. However, both gas and electric water heaters can provide different pros from each other. Here are some of the most noticeable and vital benefits each model can provide.
Gas Tankless Water Heater Pros
- Have a higher capacity
- Lower operating cost
- Lasts up to 20 years
Electric Tankless Water Heater Pros
- Low initial investment
- Little maintenance needed
- Easy Installation
Tankless Vs. Standard Water Heater
Not only do tankless water heaters take up far less space than a standard tank heater, but a tankless water heater can also last about 5 to 10 years longer while producing an unlimited amount of hot water. Since tankless water heaters can be installed in tight spaces, it is the more desirable option than a water heater tank that may occupy much-needed space. Even though tank water heaters may have a lower installation cost in the beginning, in the long run, your tank water heater will likely cost you more in utilities, where in contrast, your tankless can save money in the long run.
Are you not entirely convinced? No worries, because there are numerous other reasons why a tankless water heater can be the model your home needs.
By only heating water when it is needed, a tankless heater can save on energy. That means that if you do not need hot water, none will be produced, unlike in a tank heater where the water is constantly heating up whether it is required or not. The energy used to keep the standard tank water hot is called standby heat loss.
Endless Hot Water
With no tank to constrict the amount of water available to you, choosing the tankless option will allow for an endless flow and supply of hot water in your home.
Longer Water Heater Life
Owning a tankless heater has a significantly increased life than a standard tank water heater. An average tank heater may last anywhere from 6 to13 years, while a tankless heater can last up to 25 years.
An average tank water heater can hold about 50 gallons of water and quite possibly could leak and cause a plethora of damage to your items and home. With a tankless water heater, you can have peace of mind knowing that there is no risk of the tank leaking because, quite simply, there is no tank!
A typical water heater stands tall at roughly 50 to 76 inches holding up to 100 gallons of water. However, going with a tankless water heater will save you much-needed space as they range from 10 inches high and 7 inches wide to 30 inches tall by 20 inches wide, depending on if you are using an electric or gas model. Either way, you’re still saving a ton of usable space.

From Our Happy Customers
Great work at a fair price. Tom replaced all our toilets with low flow ones and we could not be any happier. He cleaned up the areas and left no mess like other plumbers we have used.

Called with a leaking water heater. These guys came out the same day got it replaced and hauled off the old heater. I called around and this company was the best priced and have great reviews. Will use it again.
— David Johns Creek, Ga
We love Tom! He's the best! He is always available, on time, and has been able to do things other plumbers told me were not possible. I have referred him to friends and family and they love him, too. I wouldn't use anyone else for our plumbing needs.

Very happy with the service. We have used North Peachtree for years. They replaced my kitchen faucet and then replaced my water heater with a tankless heater when my old heater started leaking.
