Why We Recommend Bradford White Water Heaters

When you call us to have us supply and install a fixture or appliance, we know you're trusting us to provide only the highest quality. We believe (and have experienced) that Bradford White makes the best water heaters on the market. Here's why.


Made in Michigan

Bradford White is an American-owned company, located in Middleville, Michigan. That's pretty close to home! Purchasing their water heaters means creating American jobs and supporting the American worker.

Corrosion-Resistant Lining

Hot water is extremely corrosive and can eat through a metal tank with ease, but Bradford White tanks are lined with an exclusive enamel called Vitraglas. The unique compound expands and contracts with the metal tank so it's very durable and long-lasting. It effectively protects the tank from corrosion and extends the life of the water heater.

Hydrojet System

A buildup of sediment in water heaters is never good - the burner has to work harder to heat through the sediment layer, reducing efficiency and overheating the bottom of the tank (which damages the tank and shortens its life). Bradford White tanks have a special kind of cold water delivery tube inside that uses jets of water to prevent the accumulation of sediment in the bottom of the tank.

Defender Safety System

Bradford White's gas-powered water heaters are equipped with a safety mechanism that automatically shuts off the burner's operation if flammable vapors are detected in the incoming air. If flammable substances are spilled nearby, you can rest assured that your water heater will not ignite them.


If you need a new water heater before the winter, don't risk your home's safety or efficiency by going with a lesser-quality brand.
