Types of Water Heaters
There are two major types of water heaters that most homeowners use. These two major types of water heaters are tankless and conventional water heaters.
At North Peachtree Plumbing, we provide service for both types of water heaters. We understand that issues with a water heater can be challenging to diagnose, especially for a busy homeowner. That is why we strive to offer quality service and efficiency. We want homeowners to feel reassured that their unit will function as intended.
We’ve broken down the two types of water heaters and some of their issues below. If any homeowner struggles to figure out what is wrong with their water heater, we would be happy to diagnose the situation promptly.
Conventional Water Heater Repair and Installation
If the name sounds familiar, it is probably because this is the most common style of water heater unit. This one might be the type of unit you currently have in your home and holds a tank full of heated water 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, conventional water heaters are also the least energy-efficient option of the water heaters our team services. This lack of efficiency is because it utilizes a large tank that can be prone to sediment buildup. So while it might have been helpful for your home ten years ago, that might not be the case now.
Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater
Storage tanks are the most common type of water heater. As the name suggests, these consist of an insulated tank. Water is heated and stored until needed then emerges from a pipe on top of the water heater. There is also a temperature- and pressure-relief valve, which opens if either exceeds a preset level for safety. Conventional natural-gas water heaters typically use less energy and cost less to run (by about half) than electric water heaters but use 50% more energy than tankless models. However, you should note that conventional and tankless gas models cost more than electric at the time of purchase.
Tankless Water Heater Repair and Installation
Tankless heaters are the newest and most technologically advanced way to heat water. This heater only heats water when you turn on the faucet. This newer version of the water heater is a compact wall unit. Because of this change in size, a tankless water heater takes up less space than a standard water heater. When you turn on the hot water at the sink, cold water will travel through a pipe and into the tankless water heater. From there, the stored water will then warm up either a gas or electric element that will produce your hot water. This type of unit is the most energy-efficient gas option.
Rather than storing water, tankless water heaters use heating coils to heat the water as you need it. They’re more energy-efficient than a storage tank and must be able to supply the needed amount of hot water for your hot water needs. Tankless heaters come with a 10-year warranty and, with proper maintenance, will last well past the 20-year mark. Tankless models are best for homes that use natural gas to heat the water.
Importance of Tankless Water Heaters
There are many reasons why you should consider investing in a tankless gas water heater. These include:
- Larger water capacity
- Lower operating cost
- Lifespan of up to twenty years
These benefits also serve as reminders of why you should regularly maintain your current heater if you have one. If you do not schedule regular inspections or wait until the last minute to acknowledge any possible damages, your heater might not be as effective as it once was.

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.
— Cliff Roswell, Ga
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.
— Steve Atlanta, Ga
He’s the best around! Not sure what I would have done without him!!!!
— Jason Brookhaven Ga
Fast and prompt service and reasonably priced. Would definitely call for anything else we need.
— Daren Atlanta, Ga
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.
