Some other questions mainly about freezing conditions:

Is this porch heated, enclosed, or not enclosed?

If not enclosed consider wind chill?

How much water line will be exposed between the heater and a heated wall?

In a former residence, my water heater was in an unheated attached garage. I kept the water heater off except just prior to use. One night the temperature went to low teens. I had a pipe freeze and burst behind the water heater.

So if moving the water heater to the porch think about all the ways something can freeze then be prepared.
