I note a lot of bashing of this heater on this forum by people who didn't buy them here. I'm a plumbing contractor and have been installing Bradford White for over 20 years. In a typical year I would install 50 of these. I've also been manufacturers rep for other makers of water heates. Bradford White, the only USA made heater (Union Made too) is a superior heater. Control failures are usually customer unable to read the relighting sequence printer on the heater. Early tank failures (earlier than 12-15 years) are indicative of either very aggressive water or installation issues such as failure to recognize and install thermal expansion control tanks on systems that require same. I make my living with these, selling and servicing them. i also work on the others. A small percentage of tanks can have manufacturing defects, but its not the normal cause of tank or control problems. You can buy (your plumber can sell) a warranty extension to 10 years. Same heater, you pay a bit more for the peace of mind. These are a plumbers water heater, not normally available retail. Good results from a water heater installation come from having an experienced plumber install. Your cousin or brother in law may be a fine guy, but have the water heater done by a pro. A real pro, go to the Bradford White online site if you need help locating a qualified plumber. On last thing. Bradford White stands strongly behind its product in terms of warranty. Folks who indicate issues are being given bad advise by guys who don't know how to get warrant service initiated (Again, see Bradford White website for help). Last gift to you for reading through, type in the model number and search for prices, some of these Amazon partner resellers have crazy pricing. In a small town, this heater installed with new flex lines, gas line, earthquake strap and haul away runs about $825, in the big city add $200.

The Bradford White 40-gallon Natural Gas water heater was a giant leap forward in efficiency since our previous model gave out. Our last water heater was of the same brand but more than 10 years old.

Let me quickly explain the house and my family. We, my Mom, little sister, visiting older sister and myself live in a town house on Staten Island, NY which was built economically. There are 5 floors, including the entry hallway and basement, to compensate for the house being slim and is located at the end of the the line of connected houses. At the moment we do not have a dishwasher installed but will in time. There is one shower/bath, three faucets, two of those faucets being in two separate bathrooms. Temperature control comes from in-wall air conditioners located in three rooms. Heating, however, comes from baseboard heaters which are located throughout the whole house. Which the only time we would use it is during the late Fall, Winter and early Spring seasons. Unfortunately I cannot give my opinion on how it operates when the colder seasons roll around but will at a later date.

This water heater was purchases within a few days of the last one breaking down. Now when I found this out I did research to figure out the best possible brand and model to go with. What I learned in the my experience of all of this I will share with you. First off if you are going to buy a tankless water heater make sure it is natural gas and consult with your distributor because it's efficiency will depend on the number of water-run utilities in your house. Second is that a higher price water heater does not always mean you will get more bang for your buck. The Bradford White water heater we bought is an updated version of our old model.

Disclaimer: I haven't owned this thing for long. It's possible I have a problem in time. If that occurs, I will update this review accordingly.

The price I got on this unit installed was fantastic. So far, it works quite well (knock on wood). It looks very nice and is easy to adjust the temperature. It *looks* well-built, although I do understand that many here have had problems with it. I like the fact that it's made in the USA because I think that, generally speaking, American made products are of a superior quality and I also like supporting American workers and American companies.

I discussed the quality of this unit with the fellow who sold it to me and installed it for me. I told him about some of the poor reviews that I had read and said it was a bit concerned about it. He told me that if you ask most plumbers what the best quality water heaters are, they'll say A.O. Reed and Bradford White. I asked how many of these heaters he has sold and installed and he said that the number is approximately 6,000 units over the course of 7 years. He said that, during that span, he's aware of only 2 problems. In one problem, the customer supposedly did something or other wrong (he told me, but I can't remember). The other issue was a product defect and the unit was replaced by Bradford White. So supposedly, 2 failures out of about 6,000 units sold and installed and allegedly only 1 due to manufacturer's defect.

Again, I'm not dismissing the comments of others. Indeed, perhaps in time I will find myself in the same situation, cursing Bradford White. But based on the comments of the fellow mentioned, the price, the fact it's American-made and the apparent build quality, I'll give it 5 stars.

Remember, I haven't owned it long. And I'll downgrade later if that becomes necessary. But so far, it seems like a nice water heater and a terrific value.
