The Geo Spring Hybrid unit is working out very well for my wife and I for the past 4 months. In our case, it was beneficial to use more electricity and less propane to heat our water. Installation was a bit more complicated than expected (Self installed) due to the extra drain lines. In addition to the pop off valve there are (2) condensation lines that must be installed and vented for the heat pump (one primary and a back up). The unit is also very heavy - about 800 Lbs. My closet / door is elevated about three feet off the ground. It took some engineering to get it in there, but we got it done. Also, make sure you have the necessary clearances for ducting if you are planning to duct the unit. The air intake was not as critical since it is on top of the unit, but the exhaust duct installs on the back side of the unit and with the required 8 inch venting duct it needs some space behind the unit to accommodate this run (if you need to install ducting that is). Now that it is installed, we are currently using the Hybrid mode and it is keeping up with the two of us just fine so far this winter [October through January so far] It is installed in a small exterior closet on the side of the house which I now know is not ideal now that I understand more about how it works. Because the small unconditioned closet only has a vented door, I will be adding some ducting to improve efficiency. With no ducting, the unit recycles much of it's own air exhaust inside the closet. It is still working OK, but it cant be as efficient since it is cooling the space as it draws in some of the same recycled air (now cooled by the heat pump) to operate the heat pump. Ideally, it should draw warm air from the house in the winter time and vent to the outside (in order to mitigate freeze concerns in the closet during the below freezing outdoor temps). In the summer I plan to reverse the ducting and draw warm air from outside the closet (outdoors) and blow the cool exhaust air into the house to help AC costs. When purchasing the unit, I did not realize how the small unconditioned closet would impact the heat pump. but I have learned more after installing the unit. Overall, I am very happy with the unit even without ducting. Once I get the ducting installed I plan to go full time in the heat pump only mode and avoid the less efficient and more costly heating element all together. If company comes over I can always jump into the high demand mode. (switching between modes is super easy). The unit will not operate as efficiently in high demand element only mode and it will cost a bit more but my mother in law is worth it for a few days. BTW - the vacation mode is very easy to set as well - just push a button. This mode puts the unit into hibernation for your preset number of days and brings it back to temp just before you get home. Very cool. I love this unit and would recommend it to anyone who thinks they are better off with electricity over gas and have the right installation conditions to maximize the heat pump functions.

All went well with the installation until the tank was filled. The tank leaked water from around the anode rod. Inspection showed the threads in both the tank and anode rod were messed up and the rod was only screwed in about 2 threads. After chasing both the male and female threads with a 3/4 NPT tap and die, new sealant and reinstalling all seems fine. I figured it would be easier to fix the problem rather than drain the tank, haul it up out of the basement, and take it back for a new one.

It seems to work fine but time will tell. GE- How about a pressure test on the tanks before they are shipped to stop this problem?

GREAT WARRANTY

By

Comments about GE GeoSprings 50 Gallon Hybrid Electric Water Heater:

This is my 2nd GE hybrid water heater. GE customer support has been phenomenal.The tank on my @4yr old water heater was leaking & after talking to my technician, it was determined it would be replaced. The replacement process was 'seamless' thanks to many GE people. Most especially Kyle who was assigned my 'case'. THANK YOU GE & YOUR WONDERFUL EMPLOYEES!

So far, so great!

By 

from South Portland Maine

Comments about GE GeoSprings 50 Gallon Hybrid Electric Water Heater:

I have had this water heater for about 3 months now and its awesome. Water is consistently hot which is a huge improvement over my previous system. I use the hybrid option but I think it has only ever used the heat pump. I look forward to many years of hot showers during our long Maine winters. When you take into consideration my state and federal rebates, it is a bargain!

So far - So Good!

By 

from Redding, CT, United States

Comments about GE GeoSprings 50 Gallon Hybrid Electric Water Heater:

I bought this water heater about 6 months ago. It's much quieter than I anticipated. So far it has worked very well. One small issue I noticed as soon as I unpacked the unit, was the large instruction label was installed crooked. I realize this doesn't affect the performance, but I bought this unit because it was built in KY. This shouldn't have gone thru QC at the factory. I'm all for buy American. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.

Key To Success

By 

from Tallahassee, FL, United States

Comments about GE GeoSprings 50 Gallon Hybrid Electric Water Heater:

I'm a few months in and I'm loving this water heater. I know it's a little pricey when compared to the traditional water heater prices but trust me, it's worth paying a few more dollars for this hybrid water heater in order to save a few more dollars. This water heater is the key to successful savings.
