My husband and I have a really small house, so every square foot matters. Would someone explain to me why we can't put the water heater about the ceiling like we installed the central heat unit? There is more than 8 foot clearance up there. I want a 50-gallon capacity unit.
Is there a half height unit we could get for a reasonable price? Otherwise, if we wanted to spend $3500, we could install a gas tankless heater to recover the space, but this house is not appreciating, so we would never recover the expense.
Thanks in advance,
