Time for a replacement?

Bradford White Water Heaters are designed for many years of outstanding performance and reliable operation – especially if they’re properly maintained and serviced*. But all water heaters eventually need to be replaced – and factors like harsh water and natural gas quality can shorten that lifespan.

*The performance of all appliances, including water heaters, varies based on handling, conditions of use, and adherence to recommended maintenance. Bradford White recommends that its customers carefully read their product’s warranty and instructions and follow any recommended maintenance schedules. Maintenance should be performed by a plumbing/HVAC professional.
