GEH50DEEDSR is rated 4.6033 out of 5 by 305.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great so far!! I have had this water heater for about 6 weeks now and it has worked great. People have said the fan is loud, but the fan on my unit is not as loud as my dryer that runs in the same room, so noise is not a problem. I have mine set at 125 degrees and we(family of 4) have plenty of hot water. Also, it has been running on heat pump mode only since I installed it and never run out of hot water. Hope it keeps functioning as it has so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smart purchase We have had our hot water heater for about 3 months now. I wanted to get the hybrid water heater to save on the electric bill. So when I saw that our local big box had one on sale we jumped at it. Come to find out our electric company gives rebates on this water heater cutting the price almost in half of the sale price. I???m on a 2 month billing cycle for my electricity and choose to pay $150 the first month and pay the balance on the second month which is anywhere from $100 to $150. Once the water heater was installed I paid the regular $150 the first month and had a credit of $9 the second month. What a huge difference it made! I had no idea it would perform that well. I have it set on ???Heat Pump Only??? right now, but may have to change it in the winter months. It has been able to meet our family???s hot water demands. Ours is in the garage and we don???t hear it when it???s running unless we are in there. There is a condensation tube we had to route outside, other than that hook up was pretty straight forward. So if you???re setting on the fence on this one, tally this review as one more reason to get one. I really don???t think you???ll be disappointed. Instead I think you???ll probably be surprised.
