Everyone’s talking about saving energy these days. Now you can get enhanced hot water delivery while increasing energey efficiency. The Performance Package includes the fully programmable Digital Control which offers a full 7 day, 4 period/day programmability of the water heater. It allows you to adjust the set point temperature of the water in the tank based on your usage patterns. There’s also a setback feature that, with one push of a button, lowers the set point temperature to save energy when you’re out of town or won’t need hot water for a long time. The control, with its LCD user interface, is similar to a home heating and cooling thermostat and features a hot water capacity indicator and a read-out of set point water temperature.

The Performance Package includes the Integrated Mixing Device, which allows water to be stored at a higher temperature while still providing comfortable outlet temperatures. It works by blending cold water with hot water to increase your usable hot water by as much as 50% or more.

With proper installation and optimum settings, you can save up to 36% in energy costs. All Bradford White water heaters and ICON Accessories should be purchased and installed by plumbing and heating professionals. Give us a call when you’re ready to purchase your Bradford White water heater.

Now that you have a Bradford White water heater installed with the standard ICON System gas control valve and optional accessory module, there are several accessory packages you can choose from.

The Protection Package will help prevent water damage in the event of a pipe or tank leak. It comes with a leak detection sensor which triggers an alarm in the Accessory Module. The sensor can also interrupt the operation of the main burner in the event of a prolonged leak. The Protection Package includes a rubber dam to encircle the water heater if no drain pan is present.

An alarm is helpful, but only if someone is there to hear it. For even better protection from a water leak, the Inlet Shut-Off Valve Package is the solution for you. The Automatic Shut-off valve closes off the cold water inlet when a leak is detected and confirmed. Once the leak has been repaired, the Accessory Module opens the Shut-off valve, allowing normal operation to continue.

We all know that no matter how well built a water heater is, they will not last forever. Doesn’t it make sense to install a water heater that will tell you when something is wrong? One of the many reasons why we recommend Bradford White water heaters.

Bradford White ICON System Accessory Packages are available on water heaters which have the ICON System gas control valve installed. This valve is now standard equipment on 40 and 50 gallon natural gas water heaters. The accessory module is the brain of the ICON System accessory packages and is the first step in making a great water heater even better. All accessory packages are powered and controlled by the accessory module. The module features an audible alarm that is activated if a leak is detected and is easily de-activated once the leak is corrected. In my next post I will begin detailed descriptions of the available accessory packages.

Bradford White water heaters and the ICON System Accessory Packages can only be purchased and installed by plumbing professionals.

In late 2009 or early 2010  all Bradford White residential gas water heaters started coming with the new Icon System gas control valve as standard equipment. This valve features a microprocessor based temperature control system that constantly monitors and controls burner operation to maintain an accurate and consistant water temperature. It has an LED light that signals up to 10 different diagnostic codes to assist in start-up and troubleshooting as well as a flashing signal to indicate that the pilot is lit. This is one of many reasons why we use and recommend Bradford White water heaters. I’ll be talking more about the new accessory packages that are available on Icon system water heaters in my next post.

It’s never good news when a water heater fails. The worst thing is that it has probably flooded your basement, crawl space, or even your main living area. And now you have no hot water, maybe no water at all if you had to shut it down to prevent further damage. So now you have a choice.. Do I know enough to go buy a water heater at Home Depot and install it myself? Or should I call a plumber to do it. Unless you’re very handy with tools and comfortable working with gas appliances and pas pipe, I highly recommend calling a professional. Yes you’re going to pay a little more but peace of mind needs to count for something. Water heaters are safe and efficient when installed correctly but can be very dangerous when they’re not. Why risk it to save a few bucks? Your professional plumber will know if a permit is required or not and they will also make sure the installation meets current code requirements. They will dispose of the old water heater for you too. We use and recommend Bradford White water heaters for many reasons. Keep an eye on my blog for more information on Bradford White water heaters, their new ICON system and accessory packages for the ICON system. And if you need a water heater replacement, we’d be happy to help – give us a call.
