How to cover an unsightly tankless water heater...

Including the pipes the gas water heater is about 35" high... and about 18" across. It needs to vent on the sides--so something with slates or holes would be good. Right now it is right over my pedestal sink--which I plan on changing for a small cabinet and build something in back so it can go out a bit from the tankless water heater.... Any help. Thanks PS in the pix my water heater is the one on the right that replaced the standing one....

    Repurpose or build frames and fill inside with decorative grating?

  • Whatever method you choose, be sure to follow manufacturers instructions for ventilation or you may void your warranty.

    Find some window shutters at a restore or thrift shop. Hinge them together so they fit around the water heater, then put a wooden top on them.

    It looks cool! Finding the right place for the water heater is also important as it can generate some noise. For my water heater, I made a cupboard that would be easy to disassemble in the event of a unit breakdown. Suddenly, at one point, I heard hot water heater knocking. The sounds were very strong and water began to pour from the hull. I realized that expensive repairs awaited me. As the master explained, the water heater should be serviced as often as possible. Do a technical check every six months and try to control the level of scale on the spirals. I never thought that technique would require so much attention from me.
