Size, length of warranty, specifics of installation, and plumber's cost all enter into it. You have to understand that Sears, Maytag, GE, Reliance, etc., do not make their own heaters. These brands are either made by State or Rheem/Ruud.

: Okay, I'm looking at water heaters, but simply cannot understand the disparity in prices. The plumber I spoke with quoted nearly $1000 for a Branford Water Heater. Why is Sears so much less expensive? I really don't need anything fancy; I live in a townhome, and am just looking to replace something old for something new. I just need something that works and will last for a reasonable amount of time.
