Ask A Pro for Water Heater Expertise

Sure, you might be able to install a water heater. But do you know how to make sure you choose the right size? Who will you call if it doesn't work right, or begins leaking?

A professional installer has the experience -- and licenses -- needed to work with gas, electric, water pressure and high temperatures. The plumbing professional is trained in the proper procedures and has the know-how expertise and the tools to ensure the job is done right.

A professional can diagnose what may be a simple problem. You may just need an inexpensive replacement part. Or there may be a problem with the wiring, venting or other critical aspect. Diagnosing the problem is part of the professional’s job.

Do you stay update to date on the latest developments in the industry? New water heaters are more efficient than ever. You could choose a heat pump tank water heater for a busy family. A tankless water heater provides endless hot water at a high level of efficiency. There are water heaters for natural gas, LP, and oil fuel sources as well. And don't forget solar water heating, as more families are turning to the power of the sun to help lower their utility costs and reduce environmental impact. 

Also, keep in mind that some of the very best brands and most innovative models are not available in retail outlets. These top water heaters are sold by wholesale suppliers to professional installers only and are not available direct to the public. 

Bradford White is one of those companies. In order to ensure that our products are installed properly and operate efficiently, Bradford White sells water heaters only to plumbing and heating professionals through wholesale distribution. We know how well water heaters can work and how safe they can be when properly installed. We also know the problems that come from poor installation.

We strongly recommend that you contact a professional installer the next time you need a water heater.
