Developed at the request of the Department of Energy, GE's new Hybrid Water Heater is the most energy efficient water heater built to date. To create the next generation of water heaters, GE rethought every aspect of the water heater from the ground up. The result? An innovative new product that can reduce water heater operating cost up to 62% and save $320 per year.* That adds up to significant savings, and you don't even have to give up a single drop of hot water.
The GE Hybrid Water Heater is ENERGY STAR® qualified and exceeds the 2010 ENERGY STAR® standards. What does this mean for you? The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act provides consumers with a 30% tax crediton the purchase and installation price of an ENERGY STAR heat pump water heater. That means a consumer could receive a tax credit on the GE Hybrid Water Heater of $450 or more depending on income level, retail price and installation cost.

Green Benefits of the GE Hybrid Water Heater
Cut water heating energy usage by up to 62%
Did you know that residential electric water heaters consume the most energy in U.S. households behind air heating and cooling systems? In fact, if you combine the energy consumed by your refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer, they use less energy than your standard water heater.
With recent technological advancements and increasing energy prices, water heaters have been pushed to the forefront of emerging high efficiency, energy-conscious products, and GE is leading the way with its new Hybrid Water Heater. GE’s new water heating solution offers the same amount of hot water, while using less than half of the energy of standard water heaters.
Vacation Setting - Save Money While You're Away
Why waste energy on hot water when you aren't home to use it? The GE Hybrid Water Heater has a "Vacation or Away" setting for use when you will be away from home for an extended period of time. With this setting, the water heater drops the temperature set point to 50°F and uses the most efficient heating mode to save energy while also preventing the water heater from freezing when you are away. So visit Grandma this Thanksgiving and your parents at Christmas and save money and energy!
The GE Hybrid water heater is ENERGY STAR® qualified
The energy efficient GE Hybrid water heater exceeds 2010 ENERGY STAR standards with an energy factor rating (EF) of 2.35. The 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.
GE electric heat pump water heater – 2.35 EF
Standard electric water heater – 0.88 EF
That means a GE electric heat pump water heater:
Saves approximately $320* per year–that's $3,200 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 eHeat™ mode vs. 4,500 watts in standard electric mode
Exceeds ENERGY STAR requirement of 2.0 Energy Factor (EF) with a rating of 2.35 EF
Reduce your carbon footprint
Operating a GE Hybrid water heater instead of a standard 50-gallon electric model could help a U.S. household reduce water heating operating costs by approximately 62%, saving up to $320 annually and $3,200 over a 10-year period based on an electricity cost of 10.65 cents per kWh.
Operating a GE Hybrid water heater instead of a standard 50-gallon electric model could help a U.S. household avoid up to 62% of its CO2 emissions from the US grid associated with water heating.
If 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, equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 360,000 cars on U.S. roads.
*Based on DOE test procedure and comparison of a 50-gallon standard electric tank water heater using 4881 kWh per year vs. the GE Hybrid water heater using 1856 kWh per year.
