Most electric tank water heater are tall, I have a shelf in my garage I want
to keep, the bottom of the shelf is 30" off the floor, and the floor slab is
4" higher than the rest of the garage floor right below the shelf, which
means the vertical space under the shelf is only about 24" tall.
Is there any tanked water heater made by any manufacturer that would be less
than 24" tall? It can be long and wide, but not tall.
My other option is to cut off 24" of the built in shelf to make room for a
The maximum demand for the heater in that area is one rarely used bathroom
(lav + shower), laundry washer, laundry tub, dishwasher, kitchen sink, and
an outdoor kitchen sink.
I have thought about tankless, but I don't want to open a hole in the roof
to vent a gas heater, and electrical tankless is not so efficient and eats a
lot of juice, not to mention multiple dedicated circuits.
Thanks in advance for any comments,
