After more than 10 years of service, the hot water heaters at 31-81 had a good run. As part of the 2016-2017 refresh effort, Ranshaw Plumbing and Heating installed two 40 gallon Bradford White hot water heaters.
Ranshaw Plumbing and Heating is a family owned and operated company with over 50 years of experience. We selected Ranshaw because they are fully licensed and insured and because of the high quality work their team has done at 31-81 since 2013. (Master plumber licenses are held by both Richard Bonelli (001090) and Richard (Richie) Bonelli Jr. (002421))
With a long and successful history dating back to 1881, Bradford White is one of the most technologically advanced manufacturers of water heating, space heating, combination heating and water storage products in the world. After researching brands, models, energy star certifications and taking into consideration the manufacturer of our last two hot water heaters, we chose the Bradford White Atmospheric Vent Gas Model #RG240S10N (Specsheet 1101) to service both apartments carry a 10 year manufacturer warranty. These devices include the following features:
Bradford White ICON System™ is an exclusive gas control technology that offers many energy and time-saving benefits including Advanced Temperature Control for consistent and correct water temperature levels, Performance Software for enhanced First Hour Delivery ratings and tighter temperature differentials, Intelligent Diagnostics to aid in troubleshooting, and Pilot-On-Indication.

The Defender Safety System® is Bradford White’s Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant technology that prevents any flames from traveling backwards and outside of the water heater. (Bradford White Defender System details)
The Hydrojet® Total Performance System is a cold-water inlet tube that was especially engineered to reduce costly sediment buildup and create more thorough mixing of incoming water with stored water. Because of more efficient mixing, extreme temperature differences throughout the tank are greatly reduced. Water Heaters with the Hydrojet Total Performance System don’t have to work as hard or as often to maintain a maximum supply of hot water at the desired temperature. They heat water faster and use less energy to do it. (Bradford White Hydrojet details)
Bradford White water heater tanks are protected from the corrosive effects of hot water by an exclusive enamel lining. The exclusive Vitraglas enamel lining is uniquely formulated and applied to the interior of the water heater tank. (Bradford White Vitraglas details)
Based on customer requests and an ongoing effort to enhance the product offering, Bradford White introduced a durable and tamper proof low restriction brass drain valve. This design allows the installer to drain the tank faster, resulting in a reduction in service time. These drain valves feature a ball valve design, brass body, and straight design for ease of hose hookup. (Bradford White Brass Drain Valve details)
