The Details

Tankless water heaters are fairly new in the U.S. They have been very popular in Japan and Europe for years due to the limited space in living quarters over seas. They are much smaller than standard water heaters, averaging about the size of a small suitcase. Their smaller dimensions makes installation options much more varied, as the units can be installed nearly anywhere. Even if there is no convenient location in your home for a tankless water heater, they can be mounted on an exterior wall. Tankless water heaters are different from conventional units in many aspects, most obvious being the absence of a storage tank, as the name implies. Tankless water heaters use a combination of gas and electricity to ignite a small burner in the unit and heat the water as it passes through a myriad of piping inside the casing. With no supply of previously heated (a full tank) water ready to feed the home, it takes longer to get hot water to the faucet with a tankless system. However, once the water reaches the fixture, it is Limitless. This is the major benefit of tankless systems. You can fill up a 100-gallon tub without ever running out of hot water, or you can run several showers simultaneously, or even run the dishwasher while washing a load of clothesall without ever losing hot water or water volume. Standard gas and electric water heaters are limited to roughly 2.5 gallons per minute, while tankless unit are as high as 8.5 gpm. Digital keypads are used to adjust the temperature settings on the unit. There are three issues to consider before choosing a tankless system. First is price. Tankless systems cost roughly 3 to 4 times more than a conventional water heater, and the installation costs run 3 to 4 times more also. Second, venting a tankless system can be a bit tricky. Tankless units produce up to 199,000 BTUs of heat, compared to a standard heaters 38,000. This means tankless systems have to be vented directly outside, separate from the HVAC system. An outdoor setup is available if you wish to avoid putting a 6 hole in your wall. The third issue is the fact that tankless units require a larger supply of gas than standard water heaters, a 3/4 gas line is needed as opposed to 1/2 lines found on tank-type units. If a 3/4 is not available near the unit, the cost of the installation will go up. Tankless water heaters can be an excellent upgrade to your home, enhancing your hot water supply and increasing your homes resale value. We install both types of systems (indoor and outdoor), and are familiar with service requirements for each. Call us for your Atlanta Water Heater solutions.
