GE GeoSpring 50-Gallon Hybrid Electric Water Heater - $359.64 (Extreme YMMV)

This is an extreme YMMV situation (and it's nothing to do with utility discounts either). Some stores have it for $700-800+ and some have it deeply discounted to $359.64. In my area for example: Greeneville, TN, Abingdon, VA, and Waynesville, NC have the cheaper $359.64 price, while Johnson City, TN has it for $719.28 and Jonesborough, TN has it for $799.20. Most stores don't have any in stock and if they do it's just 1 maybe 2.

The reason for the low price and scarce availability is that GE discontinued making the GeoSpring water heaters. They sold the production machinery to Bradford White who will presumably use that to build the same or similar product with different branding and a higher price.

The Hybrid Electric type water heater is your best bet for lower energy bills if you can't get natural gas where you live (like me). The original GeoSpring water heaters had huge reliability issues, but this part number is newer and has much more positive reviews. I will probably still try to get Lowe's to add their 5 year warranty when I pick it up just to avoid the potential headache of trying to deal with GE's warranty people. The Lowe's extended warranty is no longer showing as an add-on option when you buy this, but it used to as recently as 2 weeks ago.

Edit: Apparently Bradford White will be administering the warranty for these. Not sure if that's better than GE, but figured I'd mention it. http://www.bradfordwhite.com/geos...ter-heater

Be careful when buying this in Sacramento County (CA).. I bought one for my parents for $1000 and SMUD (Power company) offered $1000 rebate making it free as i thought it would be. But not the case. To qualify for the rebate, user needs to meet all the county requirement which took 3 months and $400 in parts to make it functional.. When the inspector came to inspect, he told me that he cannot approve because I COULDN'T replace Gas water heater for Electric unless i had solar panel which i didn't. I was smart enough to remember the inspector's name who said it was okay for me to replace my gas with electric water heater.. long story short, they make an exception bcuz they screwed up.. By the way, it keeps the garage cool in summer bcuz it has function that pull the heat from it surrounding to heat the water..

Interesting, I guess they call it AeroTherm now

Remember that these heaters have had pretty severe problems with leaking coolant in the past. I have one and it has had the coil replaced twice - once under warranty and once "as a courtesy" because the (copper) coolant lines developed pinholes. They also chose very cheap/noisy fans for the heat exchanger so if you have them in a living space (or adjacent to one) you'll likely hear it. It is definitely a cost saver, and it's got some nice features (like vacation mode, where it will keep the water at 55F minimum for X days then return to full temp).
