Did you know...

  • Residential electric water heaters are the second highest energy users in U.S. households.
  • The energy consumed by your refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer and clothes dryer combined use less energy than your current standard water heater.
  • GE is leading the way by developing a solution that offers the same amount of hot water for the entire family, while using significantly less energy than a standard water heater.

Greater Energy Efficiency.

The GE GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater is one of America’s most efficient, using 62% less energy and saving $376 a year on utility bills.

2.90 Energy Factor means 62% Reduced Energy Usage saving you $367 Energy Savings per Year.*

Energy factor indicates a water heater’s overall energy efficiency based on the amount of hot water produced per unit of fuel consumed over a typical day. The higher the energy factor, the more efficient the water heater will be.

The GeoSpring hybrid electric heat pump hot water heater:

  • Saves approximately $376* per year—that’s $3,760 savings in energy costs over a 10-year period.
  • Uses less than half the energy compared to a conventional 50-gallon tank water heater.
  • Operates at 550 watts in Heat Pump mode vs. 4,500 watts in standard electric mode.

* Based on DOE test procedures and comparison of a 2015 standard electric tank water heater using 4647 kWh per year vs. the GeoSpring hybrid electric water heater using 1514 kWh per year and national average electricity rate of 12 cents per kWh.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint.

Operating a GE hybrid water heater instead of a standard 50-gallon electric model could help a U.S. household:

CO₂ Emission Reduction
  • Reduce water heating operating costs by approximately 67%.
  • Reduce 62% CO2 emissions from the US grid associated with water heating.
  • Save up to $376* annually.
  • Save up to $3,760 over a 10-year period based on the national average electricity cost of 12 cents per kWh.


If just 25% of U.S. households purchasing a new electric water heater in a given year were to choose GE’s hybrid water heater over a standard 50-gallon electric water heater, more than 4 billion lbs. of CO2 emissions from the U.S. grid could be avoided annually.

That’s equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 360,000 cars on U.S. roads.
