In the house I am buying there is an old water heater in the attic. New one was installed and old one will not slide around it to be removed. Other than the obvious solution of making the seller remove it before we close, how hard is it to cut it in half and remove. I realize it could stay up there but I just don't like the idea.
Secondly, there is another water heater in attic above the garage. It is 20 plus yrs old. I will replace it shortly after moving in. What would be involved in moving it to the garage? Of course the 220 line would need moved as well as the water lines. Am I missing anything?
This is my first experience with a 1.5 story house and water heaters overhead. I know it's done all the time, but bad engineering IMO.
