Great features. An efficient upgrade from old style two element high wattage heaters
The Geospring hybrid is a verstile efficient hot water heater. I had some concern about the sound level of the compressor, but I proceeded with the purchase because the Mode select feature was available to easily turn the compressor off. The unit is not as loud as expected, so it is set fot "Heat Pump" mode continuously. This easily satisfies the hot water needs for two adults. We clearly expect the predicted electric bill savings based on Hybrid mode operation.

Bought & installed this model GEH50DEEDSC - great unit
I purchased the WH and received it with excellant delivery about two weeks before I installed it. I deferred installation until my family was gone over Memorial Day weekend so it didn't inconvenience anyone. Installation was very quick and easy with great instructions. WH works well - using Hybrid setting and 120 F setting. I have a geothermal Htg/Clg system with a desuperheater that heats utility water in a storage tank (old water heater) that feeds water into my new GeoSpring. So I expect I will have very low electric bills from now on. My utility gives me a $400 rebate and the IRS will provide a $300 energy credit, so payback will be in one year no doubt. No brainer!
