In or under?

I have aquired a mobile home that has the water heater in a closet in the kitchen. My question is if I move it into the crawlspace below will I notice a differance in my utility bill? How much realistically? What about insulating it, will that make it equal out?

Thanks,
Steve

I plead the fifth. I refuse to go under another trailer. Last time the cobwebs, cat dung and insulation stuck with me all day.

Well I'll be doing this myself so my insulation, cobwebs and cat dung won't be bothering you at all.

I don't think moving it would raise the utility bill unless you are in a really cold area. You can certainly put an insulation blanket on it. You could also build a shed type enclosure on the outside wall of the home. I have seen this done to use a gas water heater. Good luck.
