Point-of-use vs. whole house tankless water heaters

Tankless water heaters can either be point-of-use or whole-house systems. Point-of-use units are installed near a water source such as a kitchen sink and only provide hot water for one or two taps. These are beneficial because they reduce the amount of time you have to wait for hot water to reach its source. Whole-house units, on the other hand, are responsible for providing hot water to every water source in your home. That means you’ll only have to install one unit to get hot water all over your home.
