09 May Are You Ready for a New Water Heater?
Did you know that your water heater is the second biggest energy drain in your home behind the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system?
According to GE, almost 80 percent of consumers purchase a water heater only when their current unit breaks or leaks and they are forced to look for a quick replacement. But it’s important to know the facts about water heaters and consider different options before making such an important purchase.
The GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater from GE is 62 percent more efficient than the standard electric water heater. This energy savings can mean homeowners save up to $320 over the course of a year. Though the unit may cost a little more up front, the efficiency of the water heater can mean a difference of up to $3,000 in savings over 10 years.
The GeoSpring electric heat pump water heater is one of the first residential electric water heaters with an electronic back-lit LCD display. With 4 modes and a vacation setting to choose from, you can start maximizing your energy savings immediately.
The GeoSpring water heater combines energy-saving heat-pump technology with traditional electric elements using a fraction of the energy. So before buying your next water heater make sure that you are weighing your options.
