I'm in the process of replacing my 50 Gallon water heater. It is
located in the back of a large (4x4x8) closet with the furnace. Where
it is situated now, there is a lot of empty space that is currently
un-usable because of the water heater and furnace. I'd like to make
more space available by using a water heater with a smaller diameter,
but still maintain the 50 gallon rating. Can anyone make a suggestion
for a brand/model? I've also looked into tankless systems, but I don't
think that is the right route.
So long as the air can move freely and you don't store flammible items (and
just a few) I don't see a real problem. Consider a metal bucket.
If you have the bucks to spend, consider a tankless water heater. They cost
a lot more but you will get back almost the whole space the water heater
occupies now. In fact, you could probably mount the tankless water heater
in another location.
