Chris Morgan and Jack Lester scored the goals within three second-half minutes for the promotion-chasing Blades, while Bradford stay in the relegation zone.
The Bantams came into the game on a three-match unbeaten run and fieded a debutant keeper in Clint Davies. The 20-year-old was not troubled for more than half-an-hour before Michael Tonge drew a save with a 20-yard shot.
And Bradford almost took the lead through midfielder Paul Evans. He curled a 20-yard shot wide and then thundered a volley inches past the post.
But United improved after the break and Tonge played a one-two with veteran Stuart McCall before crossing for Morgan to head his first league goal for the club.
Then Mark Bower's mistake allowed Lester in for his 14th of the season to complete the win.
