Vent type:

A-Atmospheric, PV-Power Vent, DV-Direct Vent

Gas type:

Every model that ends with BN is natural gas model. Change BN to SX for propane type. (Example: M-I-30T6FBN is natural gas, M-I-30T6FSX is propane water heater). On some models change X to N (example: M-I-MS30T6LX to M-I-MS30T6LN) to order natural gas heater. Models that end with FRN such as UDS1-40S6FRN are for natural gas only.

If the table cell has two values... upper values are for natural gas while lower values are for propane.

Models with the energy factor, EF, of 0.67 and over are Energy Star.

Hydrojet system is the system that was designed to reduce or prevent the sediment build-up in the heater's tank, by increasing the turbulent water flow. The system utilizes either two dip tubes or one with the advanced design that incorporates the additional jetports for optimal temperature mixture. This is known as the Hydrojet 2 Total Performance System, while the first is known just as the Hydrojet.

The ICON system is another advanced feature found on Bradford White gas water heaters and it combines the temperature control, diagnostic codes, system functions and status into one advanced design with the controller and its LCD display.
