High Performance Water Heaters .
Bradford White 800 000 sq. ft.manufacturing plant in Middleville,Michigan.
Bradford White are the best water heaters on the market and they are made in USA.
First of all I want to establish that I have no economic interest of any kind nor do I have any kind of affiliation with Bradford White, and this is simply an unbiased report on a high-quality product with an exceptional customer support and a brand that has been growing consistently over a long period of time because of several reasons,first and foremost is the quality of the product,built with all premium quality components,backed by a standard six-year warranty to which if you want you can add a warranty extension for an extra four years at an additional cost of about 125 dollars.Second is the design,which is preferred by many professional master plumbers because it is engineered in a way that makes for easy installation, and is lower in height than most other brands which are usually an issue because of the location where usually water heaters need to be installed,third it is affordably priced at about 350 dollars for a standard 40 gallon natural gas water heater.

Three major water heater brands
There are three major brands of high-quality water heaters in the east coast of the US, Rheem. A.O.Smith, and Bradford White.Rheem is probably the number one in sales,still preferred by many professionals because of its reputation carried from the past, but in the present time it is made in china,need I say more? A.O. Smith has been disappearing from plumbing supply stores because of warranty issues, several batches of problem heaters and a not so good customer support, being that all three are about the same price,Bradford White gives you the best quality- price ratio.So now, to the second part of the title,Bradford White is made in the US,in Michigan,it's partly employee-owned, so employees have a stake in the company,and this is why I said not only does the company provide the consumer with a premium quality hot water heater but it also provides its employees with good paying manufacturing jobs today ,and all employees are members of the UAW with whom the company has signed a seven-year contract, situation that demonstrates that with the right management, it is possible to pay reasonable wages and still be as is Bradford White the most profitable hot water heater manufacturing company in the US , even surpassing offshore job transferring competitors.So, if your hot water heater is making strange noises,or you are starting to run out of hot water faster then you used to,your hot water heater may be nearing the end of his life , and if you do your research as you should, and ask plumbing professionals you will probably be buying a made in USA Bradford White water heater, and contributing in the process to prove that there is no reason our country can't have a strong job creating, and profitable manufacturing industry.The only negative thing to say about Bradford White is that they are making such a high-quality product ,and at such a competitive price that even though they are continuously growing their manufacturing capacity they can't keep up with the demand.

Bradford White .Made in America .
As a licensed master plumber and mechanical contractor , I can attest to Bradford White's dependability and quality. Out of 274 Hot water heater service calls for 2010 only 2 were Bradford white, and the one that needed replacing was over 20 years old. I work with A.O. smith,American, State ,Bradford White, Rheem, Mor-Flo, G-E, Ruud, Lochinvar ( made by Bradford white) and Maytag. After 20 years in the business, I recommend Bradford White . If you have bad water conditions(i.e. well water with high mineral content-dissolved solids), it is important to maintain the sacrificial anode rod on any heater or they will see a short life. I've never replaced a well-maintained heater before it was due. Made in Michigan and the only heater made in the USA, not just assembled here.
