Water Heater and Space

Mrs. Wezeldog and myself have an old spanish style 2 bedroom, 1 bath house in Florida. The house has all of three small closets. The current 40 gallon water heater is taking up valuable cabinet space. Tankless would save space but the plumber and electrician balked at the idea.

Here are the questions: What about locating the critter outside the house? We know of two friends that have done that for the same reason. Are there sheds designed for such a thing? Since we are replacing, should we need anything larger than 40 gallons?

Your idea to locate the water heater outside is an excellent one.

Providing there is enough space for a cement pad, that's the way to go in my opinion, based on your limited inside space.

Check with your licensed plummer. He/she will know the local codes. Your plummer will do the full job and provide the enclosure for one price.

Suggestion: Obtain an estimate and ideas from at least two plummers.

Good Luck
