"Good product but …"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

We have owned our General Electric hot water heater since 1/1/13 and we have had no problems with it. It does everything it is supposed to do. Installation was easy enough, my husband was able to do that on his own, and adjusting the water temperature is very simple. Our old water heater was just about to stop working and we needed something quickly that was inexpensive. What we didn't realize is that though the upfront costs of our hot water heater were relatively low, the cost of using an electric heater are much higher. I would only recommend this appliance to someone who didn't have a lot of money to spend and they were in need of something quickly, or to someone who didn't use a lot of water throughout the day. I know that the cost of electricity has nothing to do with the performance of the product, but that was a contributing factor as to why I said I was somewhat satisfied with this item.

"Pretty good water heater for the money"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

I like that this water heater came with the house. It works fairly well, regardless of whatever season it currently is. While I was taking a shower a long time ago, the hot water would arrive pretty fast. Lately, it seems to take a little longer. I checked the hoses and other systems and everything is holding up just fine after many years of use. This brand seems to be pretty darn reliable since I've bought a house that is over 20 years old and the water heater seems fine. The weather is not too extreme where I live since the area is technically a deciduous forest and therefore my advice may be less helpful to those who live in areas that tend to freeze over during the winter. The heater works well with the laundry machine. The clothes that need a hot water cycle always get the temperature they need because the water heater dials up the heat quick enough. I would certainly recommend it.

"The Review to my boiler."

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I've owned this boiler for about 2 years already and it has not given me any problems whatsoever. It does its job right, very spacious, and yes I would definitely recommend it to a friend. I'm proud to say I would also purchase this brand again if anything were to happen to it. It's also very spacious and gives me enough room to put miscellaneous items on or around it. The boiler I own heats the water just right giving my family comfortability that they need to get through the day.

"Very happy with our new water heater!"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

We have owned this GE gas water heater for about 4 years now. It replaced a very old one that we knew would need to be replaced when we purchase our home 7 years ago. The old water heater was very heavy to take out, even after draining out all of the water. The new heater, a 73 gallon one, didn't seem as heavy. My husband and I installed it ourselves. We watched a YouTube instructional video on how to do it. So it only took us about 30 minutes to get in installed and working. We've had it for about 3 years now and haven't had a problem with it at all. The water heats up very quickly. There is nothing I can think of that I don't like about it. We would highly recommend this brand to a friend who was seeking a new water heater and would definitely buy this brand again when needing to replace this water heater in the very distant future.

"GE Natural Gas Water Heater"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

This model of GE natural gas heater has been installed and operating in my single family home for roughly three years without a hitch. The heater was relatively easy for a mechanically inclined homeowner to self install and was installed and running in a short amount of time, and the cost seemed average compared to other models available. So far I see no downside to owning this model other than the initial cost to purchase it. There have been no known issues with the operation of this heater, since installation it has been flawless. This workhorse of a heater easily handles the daily demands of a 4 person household including multiple loads of laundry and the strain that two sports inclined active teens place upon it. The teenagers have a tendency to take overly long showers which would make lesser models wither. This GE model has a quick recovery time with operation of the heater being fairly quiet, which is a plus for ground level utility room installation. The cost to operate this heater seems to be fairly low since it is natural gas. I would not hesitate to purchase this item again if available at a decent price point or to recommend it to others.
