These enhancements prevent corrosion and fight sediment buildup. A.O. Smith trusts this design enough to provide a 6-year warranty for not only the tank, but all parts as well. Two inches of non-CFC foam insulation prevent standby losses and the control features a microprocessor with intelligent control logic for precise temperature control.
