GeoSpring™ FAQs

    ENERGY EFFICIENCY
  • What are the average annual savings of the GeoSpring Hybrid electric water heater?
  • How does the GeoSpring Hybrid electric water heater save versus a standard electric water heater?
  • What temperature set point should I select for my water heater and what impact will the temperature set point have on my energy savings?
  • How does the ambient air temperature affect the energy efficiency and energy savings performance of the GeoSpring?
  • What is the efficiency of the GeoSpring Hybrid electric water heater?
  • MODELS & SETTINGS
  • What are the different operating modes found in the GeoSpring Hybrid electric heat pump water heater?
  • Does the electronic control panel tell me my energy efficiency for each mode?
  • Since a heat pump hybrid water heater pulls heat out of the air in my home to heat the water in the water heater, doesn't it just make my furnace work harder to replace that heat in the air, thereby reducing the energy savings benefits of the heat pump water heater?
  • INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE
  • How does the GE Hybrid electric heat pump water heater determine the operating modes? Does the unit use multiple heat sources at the same time?
  • What happens to the GeoSpring Hybrid electric heat pump water heater in the event of a power outage in my home?
  • What is the dry fire process?
  • On initial start-up or after a power outage, how long does the unit take before it starts heating water?
  • What is the ambient temperature requirement to operate in heat pump mode?
  • What are the input wattages of the heat sources?
  • Can the GeoSpring Hybrid electric water heater be used to replace a natural gas or liquid propane tank water heater?
  • Why does the unit produce condensate?
  • PARTS & ACCESSORIES
  • What are the local condensate drain codes for the GeoSpring Hybrid electric heat pump water heater?
  • Is a drain pan required?
  • Can the heating elements be replaced?
  • Can a recirculation pump be added to this unit?
  • Is an expansion tank required?
  • What should I consider when making the decision to install a GE ducting kit (GE part #GVK8HS)?
