    We need a new water heater. The current one was installed in 2005. Have there been big changes in water heater technology since then. We don’t want to go the tankless route as it is just my wife and I and don’t need that expense for just the two of us.

    The net ones have more insulation around them which increased the diameter. Sometimes this makes it hard to fit in the existing space. Other than that you’re still heading water the same way

    Right. Things are a bit more efficient, but overall they remain a big Sterno.

    We just had a new one put in, it is shorter and fatter than the previous one. This was not only because of more insulation, though. Our old one was too tall for the space to be vented properly, so it wasn’t. Basically melted the seals on the top of it.
