GE Appliances’ new products, as part of its billion-dollar investment through 2014, continue to gain positive recognition. Today, BuildingGreen named GE’s GeoSpring™ hybrid electric water heater to its Top-10 list of green building products for 2013. GE began production of GeoSpring in February.
GeoSpring is an ENERGY STAR®-qualified water heater that was selected for its energy savings and its innovative technology.
“The GeoSpring water heater from GE is at the forefront of developments in the field, spurred by requirements coming into effect in 2015 for higher efficiencies in larger water heaters,” stated Alex Wilson, founder and executive editor of BuildingGreen. “The GeoSpring integrates heat-pump technology into its four operating modes, comes off the assembly line in GE’s Louisville, Kentucky factory, and in a product area where noise can be an issue, the GeoSpring is the quietest model we've seen, at 55 dB.”
BuildingGreen’s Top-10 list was selected by BuildingGreen, Inc., publisher of GreenSpec and Environmental Building News (EBN). The products featured on the list are those added to the GreenSpec Directory or covered in Environmental Building News during the past year.
