“30 Reasons to Buy A Water Heater from a Professional Installer.”
1. WE BELIEVE IN THE BEST FOR YOU We know how well water heaters can work and how safe they can be when properly installed. We also know the downfall and dangers of bad installations. That’s why we believe water heaters should be installed only by professionals. 2. THE RULES HAVE CHANGED As of July 1, 2003 all conventional 30, 40 and 50 gallon residential gas-fired water heaters must comply with new, stringent standards regarding Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistance. Bradford White has created the Defender Safety System™, a cutting edge technology that fully complies with the new standard. Your professional installer knows that he can count on Bradford White to meet these requirements now and in the future. As of April 2015 new edition of the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA) from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is set to take effect. All water heaters manufactured and sold in the U.S. have to meet more stringent efficiency requirements. Tank water heaters with storage capacities from 20 to 50 gallons have their physical dimensions enlarged to accommodate the additional insulation needed to meet the new efficiency requirements. 3. A GROWING FAMILY NEEDS MORE HOT WATER When your family grows or when you add a large tub, a shower or even an entire bathroom, your demand for hot water increases. A professional can help you with access to models specifically built for these types of changes. 4. THE SAFEST WATER HEATERS ARE INSTALLED BY PROFESSIONALS The Bradford White Defender Safety System is only available to professional installers – people whose knowledge, skill and experience ensure that the right water heater, and one designed to be very safe when installed correctly. The peace of mind you realize by having a plumber install your water heater is a priceless commodity you can get at a reasonable price. 5. A PROFESSIONAL STANDS BEHIND HIS WORK When you hire a professional to do the installation, he’s there to back up his work and to shoulder the responsibility that comes with the job. 6. TROUBLESHOOTING IS FOR THE PROFESSIONAL If you’re not familiar with what causes that rattling noise, that sulfur smell or that sudden reduction in available hot water, it’s best to do the right thing first. Call a professional.
