Awesome return on investment This water heater has lowered my electric bill $25 and is keeping my garage cooler. Just wish I could connect it to my home network so I could monitor it remotely May 9, 2013
Excellent over all product I like the water heater so much I bought another one (installed side by side). I only use heat pump mode,but never run out of hot water for my family need. April 15, 2013
Happy so far We bought this heater in November of 2012. It has greatly reduced our electric bill. The only problem we have had is after less than a year and a half the heat pump went. GE was great about sending a service technician and the replacement parts. I only hope the new pump holds up better. We gave this a five rating even though we had a problem due to the way our service request was handled. March 31, 2013
Most cost-effective water heater on the market I did extensive analysis on all the water heating options available to me including hi-efficiency electric, propane boiler, and solar water heating. I selected the heat pump water heater as it had the highest return on investment. After installing it, I couldn't be happier. Plus with a $450 rebate from my utility and $300 tax credit the payback is quick at just over 1-year. I installed mine in the basement laundry room, and while the fan does make noise - I never hear it unless I am in the laundry room. Great product, great savings. March 28, 2013
Truly Impressed!! We were in desperate need of a water heater that would save us some big bucks. We Noticed power savings immediately with SCE Power Monitoring Software. The Installation was a breeze and it operates quietly. We believe that this GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater is a great investment. February 24, 2013
Hot & Cold Have had this model for approx. 2 years. During the first two years it was an exceptional product producing lots of hot water with very little energy - absolutely as advertised. Then one day last month I saw the control panel flashing and became yet another victim of the now dreaded Heat sink fan failure. HPF Code F-C. I called this into GE and they immediately knew the problem and shipped me the 3 replacement parts within 3 days. However this unit was beyond the 1 year warrantee for labor but I had a Lowe's 11 year service agreement that covered the labor. Lowe's sent a GE authorized repair man BUT after he took one look at the unit he informed me that he was not qualified to service this unit since it requires someone with refrigeration qualifications. Lowe's then sent be another repair service who installed the replacement parts and got the unit running again - took 5 hours. Only 5 days later the Heat sink fan failure HPF Code F-C. appeared again. Called the repair service who stated - "I really do not know what to do, call Lowes" After numerous discussions with Lowes they finally sent me a check for the full purchase price of the unit. I noticed that the GE GeoSpring water heater has been redesigned BUT I am not sure I will risk buying this unit again. February 13, 2013
It's a Hot - Hot Water Heater! It's kind of hard to get excited about a water heater, but for anyone interested cutting your power bill this is a great way to do it. I installed two of these hybrid water heaters and have seen my power bill drop more than $40 a month. During the summer months when the air is warmer and the incoming water temperature is higher I can run mine on full heat pump mode for maximum efficiency. The side benefit is it keeps my basement cool and dry. The fan noise is noticeable so you may not want to install this in a location where noise is a concern. February 13, 2013
High Quality! Saving a lot of money! We bought this water heater about a year ago, a little nervous to spend the extra money on it. But it has been MORE than worth it! Great effeciency, superb performance, and we are saving money! Great buy, would recommend to anyone needing a good, energy saving Water Heater. GE did a GREAT job designing this one! January 16, 2013
