Doesn't bother me. Lowe's is excellent on warranties.

I had a Whirlpool 10 year water heater develop a small leak with a few months left on the warranty. I called Whirlpool, they gave me a return authorization code. I took the water heater to lowe's, gave them the code. They gave me a brand new water heater and I got another 10 year warranty with it.
Good to know, I guess with 10 year warranty, CC won't extend anything anyway.

Stupid question.. I currently have a gas heater .. can I still install this? I mean all this thing needs is an electrical outlet near it right? I can just cap off the existing gas line can't I?

Only if you have a welding outlet. This thing runs 220/240 (like an electric dryer or oven), so you'll want an electrician to handle that for you.

You need a 220v electrical feed, not a regular outlet.

was just coming here to post that. i got this in july. the rebate is a bill credit, it works out the same because I won't have to pay OUC for about 4 months. it's a money maker because my electricity bill dropped by about 25 bucks and my garage is cooler which is better for the freezer in my garage as well, doesn't have to work as hard.

I'm on the fence, I have to replace my thermostats, they keep running the temp up insanely high. 25/month is pretty nice, does it provide enough hot water for you?

This sounds like a great deal. Now I need to find out how much this baby will cost to get replaced. We bought a older house and the water heater looks old. Dont want it to go out on us and then have to buy a new one at full price. Might replace this if I can find an installer at a good price.

Does anyone know how loud these units are? I'd install one close to my bedroom and with my luck it would sound like my old air compressor.

I hope people here know how this works. It removes heat form the air (where ever you site the water heater/say the basement) to heat the water..its just transferring heat. When the demand is high, it will heat water like a normal electric heater. You will notice a cooling effect, which is great in the summer, but in the winter not so much. In theory, your gas furnace (whatever u use to heat) will be heating your hot water too (at least in heat pump mode). I have a gas hot water heater (power vent) which are pretty cheap to run right now with low gas prices. Maybe some day it will pay to go to this. It is pretty much free AC in the summer running this unit.

I have this water heater and bought it for $450 plus rebates at Lowe's last year. I made a thread on here about it when I purchased it. So I really got it for free.

The federal tax credit is UP TO $300 based on purchase price.

Why would you want to switch over from gas to electric? Isn't gas usually cheaper?

Wow, that is an amazing price. I am showing 2 AEP Ohio rebates, one for 300 and one for 50.

Edit: combine with 10% discount on gift cards from cardpool for even more savings. So tempted to buy this and throw it in storage at this price.

Love the review:

Don't buy until you are ready to install

I bought this GeoSpring water heater in late November 2012 as part of a remodel project we are doing at the house. The reviews we had read on this site and others glowed as to the savings and functionality of this heater, so we went with the GE hybrid over other makes.

We were not ready to install it, but Lowe's had a great finance deal going, so we bought it early. We were ready to install this water heater in the middle of May 2013, and were disheartened to discover that the unit wasn't working properly and displayed a FF code out of the box. This particular unit seems to be a victim of some manufacturing problems (per GE#, and all the freon had leaked out while between manufacuture and our installation.

GE has worked with us to have the unit repaired, however it is now late August, and the unit still isn't working in hybrid mode. Another service call to replace yet another part is set #another week out). Hopefully this will actually fix the unit and we will see what others are glowing about. I will say that I don't have any confidence in this water heater, even if it is fixed.

I shouldn't feel this way after spending nearly $1000 on the heater. Had we bought the heater and installed it immediately, we could have returned it to Lowe's for either a replacement or refund.

GE WILL ONLY DO A REPLACEMENT MODEL IF IT IS WITHIN 7 DAYS OF PURCHASE OR IF THE UNIT IS DEEMED UNREPAIRABLE.

Even though our unit was defective out of the box, GE would not allow us to get another new unit, and we have had to endure the repair path. If you intend to buy this model of hybrid water heater, DON'T BUY IT UNTIL YOU ARE ACTUALLY READY TO INSTALL.

Hindsight being 20/20, the financing deal in Novermber 2012 wasn't worth the hearthache we have had trying to get this heater functioning properly.

After installation and upon first start-up the heater showed an F2 Fault and would not produce hot water. GE responded two days later with a Tech to fix.
Other than a fault, the heater is working great and it has provided even/steady 120 degree heated water . . . my gas heater did not provide a constant temperature water.

I guess 2 days without hot water isn't TOO bad......
