Description for Bradford White M-I-504S6FBN

PLEASE NOTE: This water heater cannot be sold to residents of certain southern California zip codes due to Air Quality Regulations. To view a list of zip codes where this heater cannot be installed, click here.

This Bradford White water heater utilizes a draft diverter and is atmospherically vented. It is perfect for many standard water heating applications.

Features:

  • Bradford White ICON System - Intelligent gas control with proven millivolt powered technology and built-in piezo igniter. A standard, off the shelf thermopile converts heat energy from the pilot flame into electrical energy to operate the gas valve and microprocessor. No need for external electricity.
    • Enhanced Performance - Proprietary algorithms provide enhanced First Hour Delivery ratings and tighter temperature differentials.
    • Advanced Temperature Control System - Microprocessor constantly monitors and controls burner operation to maintain consistent and accurate water temperature levels.
    • Intelligent Diagnostics - An exclusive green LED light prompts the installer during start-up and provides ten different diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting.
    • Pilot On Indication - Flashing green LED provides positive indication that pilot is on.
    • Separate Immersed Thermowell - High strength advanced polymer composite thermowell provides isolation between electric temperature sensor and surrounding water. No need to drain the tank when removing gas valve.
  • Advanced ScreenLok® Technology Flame Arrestor Design - Flame arrestor is designed to prevent ignition of flammable vapor outside of the water heater.
  • Resettable Thermal Switch - Proven and reliable bimetallic switch prevents burner and pilot operation in case of ongoing flammable vapor burn inside of the combustion chamber or restricted air flow.
  • Maintenance Free - No regular cleaning of air inlet openings or flame arrestor is required under normal conditions.
  • Sight Window - Offers a view into the combustion chamber to observe the operation of the pilot and burner.
  • Factory Installed Hydrojet® Total Performance System - Cold water inlet sediment reducing device helps prevent sediment build up in tank. Increases first hour delivery of hot water while minimizing temperature build up in tank.
  • Vitraglas® Lining - Bradford White tanks are lined with a exclusively engineered enamel formula that provides superior protection from the highly corrosive effects of hot water. This formula (Vitraglas®) is fused to the steel surface by firing at a temperature of over 1600ºF.
  • 1" Non-CFC Foam Insulation - Covers the sides and top of tank, reducing the amount of heat loss. This results in less energy consumption, improved operation efficiencies and jacket rigidity.
  • Pedestal Base.
  • Water Connections -3/4" NPT factory installed true dielectric fittings.
  • Factory Installed Heat Traps.
  • Protective Magnesium Anode Rod.
  • 3x4 "Snap Lock" Draft Diverter - Allows either 3" or 4" vent connections with inputs of 40,000 BTU/Hr or less. Over 40,000 BTU/Hr. has the 4" "Snap Lock" Draft Diverter.
  • T&P Relief Valve - Included.
  • Brass Drain Valve - Tamper proof design

PLEASE NOTE: The product weighs 150 lbs. and may require the use of a
lift gate.
If you do require a lift gate at your delivery, you'll have the option to add this FREE of charge when you checkout.

    Q:

    Need a water heater where I can reloate the pressure relief value to the top due to radiant heating. Is it possible with this model?
    Asked on 11/4/2012 by leo from Albuquerque

      A:

      I used the water heater in a way were I left the pressure relief valve on
      the unit as is, so you do not void their warranty. Then I just added my own
      inline pressure relief valve on the feed side(hot) of my radiant heat system
      coming out of the water heater. Now you have 2 valves, they are cheap. The
      idea is if the water heat goes crazy internally it is safe and if it just
      gets hot and the relief valve fails on the unit you have a backup in the
      radiant heat system protecting it again.

      It is possible with this unit, but it would need to be a custom order.

    Q:

    What is the R-Value?
    Asked on 10/2/2012 by Ryan from OH

    2 answers

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The Hot Water Heater has 1 inch of foam which equates to R-4 to R-8
      Foam insulation R-values range from R-4 to R-8 per inch of thickness (2.54
      cm), which is 2 to 3 times greater than most other insulating materials of
      the same thickness. Also, if the installation is carefully installed, foam
      insulation may control air infiltration more effectively than other types of
      insulation.
      Several variables affect the installed R-value of foam insulation,
      including: the initial density of the foam; the blowing gas used (CFC, HCFC,
      CO2, air, or a number of other gases); how the foam insulation is handled
      (dents and chips adversely effect the R-value); the type of facing (if any)
      used; and the conditions in which the foam is installed.
      Foam insulation is often made with one of three materials: molded expanded
      polystyrene (MEPS), extruded expanded polystyrene (XEPS) or polyurethane,
      polyisocyanurate, or a related chemical mixture. Some are installed as a
      liquid while other types come as factory made panels or "foam board."

      R-value is a measure of insulation.

    Q:

    Is this a "hi-Recovery" model and what is the difference with the same water heater that has a 10 year warranty instead of the 6?
    Asked on 4/9/2012 by Anna from Fair Lawn, NJ

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      This unit is rated at 79% recovery efficiency. Bradford White models with 6-year and 10-year warranties are no different, as all their water heaters are designed to last for 10 years. For an extra fee, you can upgrade to a 10-year warranty.
