• Features
    • Featuring a 40-gallon (nominal) tank and a 40,000 BTU gas burner, the GCR-40 Standard Vent delivers a first hour rating of 80 gallons and a recovery rate of 42 gallons per hour. With an 0.66 Uniform Energy Factor, this water heater is not ENERGY STAR® qualified. It carries a 6-year limited tank warranty, and meets Low NOx emission requirements.
    • The internal microprocessor provides enhanced operating parameters and tighter differentials for precise sensing and faster heating response to optimize performance.
    • Uses a thermopile to generate the power needed to operate the electronic gas control without requiring an external power source.
    • The electronic gas control incorporates an LED status indicator that monitors system operation and service diagnostics.
    • Patented eco-friendly design reduces NOx emissions by up to 33% and complies with Low-NOx emission requirements of less than 40 ng/J.
    • Helps reduce lime and sediment buildup, maximizes hot water output. Made from long lasting PEX cross-linked polymer.
    • Our anode rods have a stainless steel core that extends the life of the anode rod allowing superior tank protection far longer than standard anode rods.
