    ***Scratch & Dent*** Scratches and dents on exterior wrapper. A.O. Smith continues to lead the way in residential and commercial water heating with close to 70 years of innovative hot water solutions. The GAHH-50 features the latest in atmospheric-vented water heating, making it an ideal choice for those looking to replace out of date, inefficient water heaters. A patented pressurized combustion chamber and advanced air intake blower helps deliver an optimal air-to-gas mixture, giving you top of the line water heating efficiency. This results in a .70 energy factor and more dollars in your pocket. The 50 gallon tank and 43 gallon per hour recovery rate mean it can easily keep up with the hot water needs of an average household.
  • Pressurized Combustion System
  • The Effex line features an atmospheric vent system, which allows the unit to distribute an optimal air-to-gas mixture, resulting in one of the most efficient gas powered water heaters on the market.
  • Electronic Gas Control
  • Designed with optimized performance in mind, the GAHH-40 uses intelligent control logic to control the flow of fuel into the unit. This means better performance and a more efficient heating rate.
  • User-Friendly Electronic Interface
  • A built-in easy to read controller on the unit gives you easy access to temperature settings, operating mode, and multiple diagnostics to make sure your unit is running exactly how you want it.
  • Dynaclean Diffuser Dip Tube
  • The diffuser dip tube helps reduce lime and sediment buildup by redirecting incoming cold water to create turbulence. Helping your unit to run longer and better.
  • Powered Anode Rods
  • These hot water heaters feature powered anode rods which are non-sacrificial, so they do not deplete over time. This also allows them to operate in all water conditions.

Medium ? Medium refers to the substance that carries heat through the heating system. Systems are either designed to use either Hot Water or Steam as a medium, and components are usually specific to one or the other.
Hot Water
Fuel Type ? To create heat, some form of fuel is required. Fuel Type specifies what the product uses as an input to create heat.
Natural Gas
Vent Type ? Products that use combustion (burning) of fuel to create heat also create potentially dangerous gasses that need to be exhausted (AKA "Vented"). Depending on the product, venting can be done via a chimney, through a side wall, or use a second vent to provide fresh air to the appliance.

Maximum Input Capacity ? The Maximum Input Capacity describes how quickly the appliance will use fuel when delivering it's maximum capacity. The units may change depending on the fuel being used.
40000 BTU
First Hour Delivery ? Sometimes called First Hour Rating, this is the number of gallons of hot water the heater can supply per hour when starting with a fully heated tank. The recovery of the water heater depends on your boiler's BTU and boiler output temperature.

Low NOx Emissions ? NOx is a byproduct of the combustion process, and it's output is regulated in some jurisdictions. Many regulators mirror SCAQMD rules, which regulate air quality for some parts of Southern California. Low NOx appliances emit less than 40 ng/J (nanogram per Joule) of NOx. Learn More
