To our valued customers the changes are now in effect in the water heater industry that anyone who has a hot water heater will effect. These changes are from the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act. Now there will no longer be an 80 gallon electric hot water heater. These have been replaced with a heat pump water heater, the efficiency will be much greater but we expect a 35% to 50% or more increase in initial cost, but you should see a substantial reduction in energy costs. PECO is offering a $400.00 rebate on changing from a all electric water heater to a high efficiency heat pump water heater. These units will come with a 10 year manufactures warranty. This will not be the only change all water heaters they have been mandated to increase the insulation value for the tanks, this will mean a water heater may be as much as 2″ wider and taller. This will effect all water heaters electric , gas and oil. If you have any questions please give me a call and I will try to answer anything I can. Please be aware that these changes are in no way brought about by Bradford White or any water heater manufacturer, these are federal mandates brought out by the government. Warranties have become a little more complicated in the past you were given a new water heater and the warranty only extended to the remainder of what was left on the original warranty. Now you will be given a credit toward the cost of the old water heater you will need to pay the difference of the price increase of the old to the new but you will receive a new 6 year warranty on the new water heater.
