automate power on/off of water heater

I never bought one once I some of the issues were explained to me. the plan was to build a small shack to put it in but even then the cold air it puts out would make it fight itself if enclosed. i think they work fine in any place that does not dip below 40 on a regular basis
 
Here is an idea ...
