But I need a short one.  Do they still make gas heaters only 3 ft tall?

Yes, called low boys.

That's electric

How about tankless?  They are rather compact and you will never run out of hot water again.  It seems a 3' one would not provide much hot water anyway (especially after the new regulations).

Tankless can be small

It was electric. Very few homes around here have gas water heaters.

That's what I have been running into.  Lots of electric ones that size but no gas ones.  Shortest gas one I have found is 50 in tall.

Tankless if you already have gas. It's money upfront, but saves on the bill and never runs out of hot water...  The biggest plus is it cures the space issue.

From what I have seen, tankless generally requires a larger gas line than most people have.  A new run of gas line can easily cost more than a tankless heater.  







Maybe one of the professional posters can confirm this?










I would go tankless next time, unless I have to make a new run.



 





I currently have  40 gallon tank gas heater and I have never run out of hot water, even in the winter, with a large number of guests in the house.
