GEH50DEEDSR is rated 4.6036 out of 5 by 502.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Previous model exceeds our expectations We've had GE's previous but very similar Heatpump water heater for 2 years now and have been extremely pleased and can highly recommend this new version, all the more that it is now manufactured in the USA instead of China. We been able to keep ours set in Heat Pump eHeat mode thereby achieving the maximum efficiency but still have adequate hot water. The only negatives are still no software provisions for Time of Use utility company rate structures, and this new model inexplicably reduced the Vacation period to a max of only 14 days whereas our previous version permitted up to 90 days absence. Hopefully these two shortcomings will be corrected in the near future with firmware updates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. Just Wow. I picked up a new GeoSprings water heater a few months back, in fact, I bought it the day they were released at my local big box store, and was informed I was most likely the first person in America to have one of these guys installed. I'm not going to lie -- I was attracted to it more for it's cooling ability, not necessarily the energy savings, as my Florida Garage can easily hit 105-110 during the hot summer months and stays at a balmy humid 80-95 most of the rest of the year. With all the discounts and rebates in my area, the cost was a push over just installing a portable AC unit, and paying for the extra electricity for the next year, so I figured it was worth a shot. So, over the last 3 months -- I'm happy to report, that my garage now peaks at 85 during the day (It'll go past 90 if you pull in a hot car). And, first thing In the morning, it's a nice cool 68-70 degrees. So, the even more amazing unexpected result? My Power bill has dropped over $40 a month. And here is why (Hint: I'm not just saving on Hot water...): 1. Since I'm using less electricity, I stay in the lower price tier. (I pay more for each Kw over 1000). 2. My garage is cooler -- Meaning my Garage Fridge (Or if you have a deep freezer) works less (saving more Watts). 3. *** Less hot air escapes into the house when the door is open, meaning the AC has to work less. Before, when you opened the garage door, it felt like you were opening an oven as the hot air pushed right into the house and you felt the the cool air escaping into the garage. 4. Due to the way it works and the temp of the garage, I run in heat-pump only mode. (Altho, During cooler months I might switch to hybrid) So my coils never turn on. We now use hot water for Laundry, Dishwashing, etc. Because the more we use, the cooler the garage. The cooler the garage, the more I'm saving... And as a Family of 3, we have never had any recovery issues (Even when we have visitors and our shower duty doubles). Really, my mind is blown. Well done GE. I now honestly feel that every hot climate state where water heaters are installed in garages, it should be a state code to install these water heaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unit does everything I expected and more Our old 50 gal heater failed and i wanted to use the hybrid technology , however I was worried about the space I had to install the unit. The space is a 3 foot by 6 foot closet/pantry located between our dining room and a bath. By cutting two vents into the bath one high and one at the cool outlet level I was able to get more than the 240 sq inch vent required. Also the doors on the closet are louvered. The unit not only produces plenty of hot water it helps reduce the humidity level in the bath. sound level is very low and does not bother us while dining less than 8 foot away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase - a must have! We purchased this water heater after our oil-fired unit moved on. I was hesitant about moving from oil to electric, both because of demand and cost, but I am so glad I did. We have a family of 3, and we have been able to run laundry, a dishwasher, and 3 showers/baths in the evening, and never feel the water getting cold. It took a little while to figure out which setting would work best for us - heat pump, hybrid, high demand, or electric, but found that setting it on high demand and 133 degrees provides more hot water than our oil unit did at 140 degrees. Best of all, after 3 utility bills have come through, we have actually seen our usage decrease, when I fully expected an increase. Lastly, if you're thinking about going 'green', it not only saves energy, but the 5 or so gallons of water it puts out each week (helping to dehumidify our basement and cool the house at the same time) saves on watering the flowers as well! Check for utility company and tax rebates for even more savings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE Hybrid Water Heater, saves on electricity costs We replaced a defunct solar system, 80 gallon water heater, that had lasted for around 20 years, with the new GE Hybrid water heater about 3 months ago. So far it has performed flawlessly and we are now beginning to note a drop in our overall electricity bill.
