Bradford White Announces Release of NEW
AeroTherm® Heat Pump Water Heaters
Ambler, PA – April 2018 - Bradford White Corporation, a leading manufacturer of residential and
commercial water heating and storage equipment worldwide, today announced the launch of their new
AeroTherm® Heat Pump Water Heaters, which are now in production at their plant in Middleville,
When compared to a standard electric water heater, the AeroTherm® Heat Pump Water Heater can save
the average household approximately $300* a year. Based on those savings, this water heater could
effectively pay for itself over its lifetime.
As a Bradford White product, the new ENERGY STAR® certified AeroTherm® will feature Vitraglas®
corrosion protection and will have a six or ten-year warranty option for both tanks and parts. The
AeroTherm® features convenient top connections and can be fully repaired in the field (both sealed
system and electrical).
The AeroTherm® offers tremendous flexibility for the consumer with four different operating modes:
Heat Pump Mode (most energy efficient), Hybrid Mode (energy efficient with faster recovery), Standard
Electric Mode (best performance), and Vacation Mode (to save energy when the unit is not being used).
Carl Pinto, Director of Marketing at Bradford White: “The AeroTherm® gives homeowners the
opportunity to easily and effectively manage their hot water energy savings and performance by
selecting the AeroTherm® operating mode that best represents their hot water utilization. This is an
important factor when you consider that water heating is the second largest utility expense in American
homes and accounts for 14-18% of an average home’s utility bill.”
