Gas Water Heaters

We now carry Bradford White water heaters. Here are some features of the Defender Safety System Energy Saver (30, 40 and 50 Gallon Models) water heaters:

  • Advanced Temperature Control System - Microprocessor constantly monitors and controls burner operation to maintain consistent and accurate water temperature levels. 
  • Exclusive Performance Software - Proprietary algorithms provide enhanced First Hour Delivery ratings and tighter temperature differentials.
  • Intelligent Diagnostics - An exclusive green LED light prompts the installer during start-up and provides ten different diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting.
  • Pilot-On-Indication - Flashing green LED provides positive indication that pilot is on.
  • Millivolt Powered - An off-the-shelf thermopile converts heat energy from the pilot flame into electrical energy to operate the gas valve and electronics. No external electricity required.
  • Separate Immersed Thermowell - High strength advanced polymer composite thermowell provides isolation between electronic temperature sensor and surrounding water. No need to drain the tank when removing, or replacing the gas valve.
  • Integrated Piezo Igniter - Built into the control itself, the igniter eliminates the need to open the combustion chamber to light the pilot.
  • Universal Replacement - The Bradford White ICON System service kits are available for direct replacement, or for the replacement of Robertshaw or White-Rodgers gas valves on most older Bradford White models
