Bradford White Water Heaters - Defender Safety System High EF models

The Bradford White water heaters, Defender Safety System® High EF models provide you with additional insulation and heat traps strategically placed on all these models so as to trap the heat thereby reducing the overall stand-by heat loss. Due to this feature each of these models has achieved very high Energy Factor (EF) ratings.


An Atmospheric Vent Water Heater That Saves:

  • Each of the Bradford White gas atmospheric vent Defender Safety System® High EF models possesses additional insulation and heat traps thereby increasing the efficiency and Energy Factor of all these heaters.

  • These models come in various capacities ranging from 30 - 60 gallon water heaters.

  • Their base is fitted on a pedestal to prevent any damage and heat loss by convection.

  • These atmospheric vent water heaters have enhanced performance with intelligent diagnostic systems. They have an advanced temperature control system with a separate immersed thermowell.

  • They have a pilot-on indication system along with green LED for easy viewing.

  • This water heater also features advanced Flame Arrestor design.

  • There is absolutely no need of any maintenance as this water heater takes care of itself.

  • The temperature of the water can be adjusted to meet your specific needs.

  • These Bradford White water heaters come along with Factory installed Hydrojet® Total Performance System.

  • The anode rod is made up of magnesium and hence protects the water heater from corrosion.

  • These water heaters come along with temperature and pressure relief valves and hence keep check of both the temperature and pressure.

  • The drain valve is made up of brass and hence this too is long lasting and corrosion proof.


Top Atmospheric Vent Water Heaters!

The Bradford White water heater High EF models have a special defender safety system that gathers air for combustion into the atmospheric vent water heater through a small opening in the jacket, this air then enters the burner and is combusted at an optimum ratio producing a lot of heat with very low NOx emissions.

The main part of these water heaters is the flame arrestors design – patented ScreenLok® Technology; the purpose of the flame arrestor is to increase the velocity of the incoming air that enters the system.

The whole water heater is corrosion proof – there is an anode rod made up of magnesium that prevents the tank and heat exchanger from being corroded; the exit valve is made up of brass and hence it is protected from corrosion as well. Due to the presence of additional insulation and strategically placed heat traps there is absolutely no heat leakage thereby saving you fuel.

This Water Heater Saves $$$$!

The Bradford White Defender Safety System® High EF models are surely the best when it comes to water heating – great efficiency, performance, safety and savings.

This water heater has a special defender system which gets air for combustion through a small opening in the jacket which is further directed to the combustion chamber and then travels up to the flame arrestor where its velocity is increased and finally this air is used for combustion in the NOx burner.

The temperature control system of this water heater is very advanced with the presence of an immersed thermowell. An automatic cleaning device is present to see that no sediment build up takes place. These Bradford White water heater models are especially renowned for their High Energy Factor (EF) as well as efficiency.
