Our factory trained service and installation techs are authorized to perform warranty work for State, AO Smith, Rheem, Ruud and of course Bradford White.
Hot water tanks generally fail when corrosion attacks the exposed steel in the tanks. No tanks are perfectly glass lined. There are imperfections in the lining of the tank and when these imperfections begin to corrode and weaken is when your tank will fail. Of course this usually happens at the most inappropriate time - a holiday or when you're away on vacation. Tanks life expectancy is in the neighborhood of ten to twelve years. Hetter Heating & Cooling stocks Bradford White, but also installs Rheem, Ruud and AO Smith hot water tanks.
As of April 16, 2015, the new higher energy efficiency ratings on virtually all residential gas, electric & oil water heaters took effect as mandated by the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA). For consumers this means a significant increase in price. We are seeing – in some cases – up to a 40% increase. Also, the size of the new tanks – especially the diameter – may be larger. Due to the mandates, gas water heaters may require additional insulation & will be required to incorporate electronic ignition among other changes. In most cases, according the Bradford White’s website, “the new products will differ only slightly in size and therefore will easily replace the majority of existing products.” Homeowners whose hot water heaters currently fit in a tight space may be faced with an expensive problem with a new, larger tank. Bradford White just went through the largest plant expansion in company history to accommodate the production of NAECA compliant products, which includes the installation of the most advanced manufacturing equipment.

Despite the fact that Hetter Heating & Cooling has been installing hot water tanks for over twenty five years, some suburban municipalities require a licensed plumber to install hot water tanks. We appreciate the support and cooperation we have received from those customers we have had to refer on.
