GENERAL ELECTRIC Water Heater Reviews

"Great Hot Water"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have had this water heater for many years. It is well built and provides enough water for a family of 4. We are never short of hot water even when we are running a load of wash, a shower and the dishwasher all at the same time. It is great with protection of the pilot light and we have had no problems in over 4 years.

"A Device Which Serves its Function"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I've owned my current General Electric water heater for two and a half years, although it has been installed in this house for much longer and has served the needs of three different families. I like that it has always served its function as needed and there really isn't anything all too bad about it. It's never needed repair or replacement and has been functioning for at least 7 years. I do a lot of home maintenance work and would definitely recommend any General Electric heater to anyone seeking my advice on the matter. We like to run ours a little on the hot side so the water lasts longer, and it works great with this method.

"GE Water Heater: Typically excellent value."

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I installed this water heater when we first moved into this old, rambling Maine farm house. The water heater was needed to replace the old water heater that was located in the basement which was failing. I relocated the water heater to a closet in the front portion of the main floor of the house because the basement is unheated and has an earth floor. The water heater was moved to improve efficiency by keeping it within the heated envelope of the house. I also installed a timer, as the water heater's only function is to provide hot water to the upstairs bathroom, laundry room sink and downstairs powder room. In the four years of operation, I have found the water heater to be dependable and provides sufficient hot water for all needs. The use of the timer limits the actual time the water is heated to two hours, at lowest kilowatt hour cost periods, unless the water heater is deliberately turned on for other purposes. The cost of operation of the water heater is very low since the time of electric use is very limited. Purchased from a "big box" home improvement store on steep discount, the 53 gallon capacity GE water heater has provided excellent service and represents outstanding value.

"Easy to light, is mostly efficient"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have had this water heater for 5 years. It runs very well, and I have not had any problems with it. I do occasionally have to drain it of sediment, but it is an easy process. One thing I love is that it is extremely easy to light with the electric ignition. One flaw might be that if the electronic ignition is broken, there is no easy way to light it manually. I might buy again, but would be more apt to buy a more efficient model in the future. With technology taking great leaps towards sustainability and efficiency, models just a few years old are now becoming obsolete as new products become available

"My water heater."

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have owned my water heater for about the last 4 years and what I enjoy the most about this product is the fact that it came with a lifetime warranty and it also has a removable filter. Since I have had this particular water heater I have not had any issues with the pilot going out or any other mechanical issues that would prevent me from using my hot water. I have never had to call for any repairs or replace any parts and I would highly recommend this product to any of my associates and family. The price of this particular water heater was very fair and I enjoy all of General Electric's products.
