The GE GeoSpring was discontinued at the end of 2016. The GeoSpring was a hybrid electric water heater with a 50-gallon capacity. It had a 2.9 energy factor rating and was Energy Star qualified. The unit’s heat pump technology was environmentally friendly and up to 67% more efficient than a standard electric water heater, according to the manufacturer. It featured two copper elements and a layer of foam insulation for increased efficiency and had a first hour rating of 67 GPH. The GeoSpring had electronic controls with four operating modes, including a vacation setting, for optimal performance.
Some consumers complained that the GeoSpring was louder than they expected, too expensive, and that the plumbers who installed them weren’t familiar with heat pump technology.
