Water heater review: Bradford-White M-I-40T6FBN

Recently we’ve had a lot of questions coming down the pipeline from customers who want a reliable water heater at a reasonable price. Without hesitation, we give them the same answer every time: You want a Bradford-White M-I-40T6FBN.

Without hesitation, we give them the same answer every time: You want a Bradford-White M-I-40T6FBN.

Enhanced Performance

This allows for better first hour delivery, meaning the volume of water that the unit can deliver in the first hour used. The unit is rated for 75 gallons.

LED System

The unit has an LED light that provides different diagnostic numbers or codes to help troubleshoot, and an LED that indicates when the pilot light is on or off. No more guesswork.

Flame Arrestor

This unit has a system that prevents the ignition of any gas that may build up outside of the water heater.

Hydrojet® Total Performance System

Reduces the amount of sediment buildup, which also means you don’t have to drain the tank to clean out sediment.

Exclusive Enamel

All Bradford White tanks include a Vitraglas® Lining that helps protect the tank.

Another thing customers will like about this model is it’s not quite as large as some other 40 gallon tanks. So if your water heater is in a tight spot, or you just want to free up a little more space, this is a great solution.

If your water heater is nearing the end of its life, our best advice is not to wait. You never know when a deteriorated water heater will spring a leak. If your unit is already leaking, you need to replace it immediately. Small leaks turn into big problems.
