Important Things To Consider
If you currently have a 60-gallon water heater, you will need to choose either a 50-gallon or 75-gallon model. Since 2015, 60-gallon natural gas water heaters have been eliminated from every manufacturer's product lineup due to new energy requirements from the US Department of Energy and the National Appliance Conservation Act. A great option in this situation is a 12-year warranty 50-gallon natural gas tank with a non-powered water heater booster. This can provide you with performance similar to a 75-gallon tank, along with a longer warranty and better energy efficiency.
Your next water heater may cost more, but a self-cleaning model or longer warranty can save you money in the long run.
Bradford White's 6 year warranty tank is self cleaning. Therefore it can last longer than non self cleaning tanks according to the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act. Because of this Bradford White offers a warranty upgrade and not a different line of water heaters for longer warranties.
Water heaters are not pro-rated under warranty like car batteries. If a water heater malfunctions within the warranty period, a replacement unit will be provided. If any fees are charged by the supplier or store, a new warranty will be issued. If the replacement is a direct exchange, the new tank will inherit the remaining warranty of the previous water heater. It is important to note that 12-year tanks can only be replaced with 12-year tanks, and the same applies to 9 and 6 year models.
You don't need a receipt for warranty purposes as the tank's serial number provides its date of manufacture.
If you possess a bigger water heater, it may be worthwhile to explore the possibility of using a gas tankless alternative. These tankless units have the potential to outperform larger tanks and result in significant energy savings. Often, investing in tankless can yield a return on investment within a mere 2 years.
