Question DetailsAsked on 10/18/2013

I want to install a hybrid water heater. The old one is in a 4'x4'x8' exterior closet on a 8" cement pad.

All the electrical and water lines are there in this exterior closet, and there is sufficient space. With adequate ventilation, can I install a hybrid water heater or not all?

If the economics work for you, especially with your ambient temperatures (since this is an outdoor unit), should be no problem - I did a quick check on a 50 gallon Rheem and it required minimum 30" square space, so you should be able to find a number of untis that fit your space, if indeed not all in residential size - that is more room than is common for a water heater utility closet.
