Bradford White vs GE 40 Gal Electric Hot Water Heater

12 years ago

I've read that unlike gas hot water heaters, there isn't that much of a difference in quality and manufacturing (inner parts and components) in electric hot water heaters. I've narrowed down my selection in 40 Gallon Electric Units to Bradford White and the GE (apparently made by Rheem) with a 12 year warranty sold at Home Depot. When getting quotes for the complete job (parts and labor) there seemed to be about a $100 difference in price between the two units. Which unit would you choose to be installed on the second floor of an apartment in a closet next to the pantry?
