General Electric (GE) Water Heaters
GE Water Heaters have been an industry front runner since 1892 when Edison General Electric Company merged with Thomson-Houston Electric Company to create General Electric (GE) Company. In addition to water heaters, GE also produces other appliances such as refrigerators, ovens and dishwashers. Does this Spark an idea?
In addition to the standard style, GE offers a variety of water heaters, including hybrid, tankless and energy-efficient models. GE’s hybrid water heater includes heat pump technology which can use 62 percent less energy than a standard water heater.
GE water heaters range in capacity from 28 gallons to 80 gallons. Choosing the right size water heater for your needs depends on the number of people in your household, number of bathrooms and presence of a dishwasher or washing machine.
Depending on your home setup and personal preference, you can find a GE water heater powered by electricity, gas or propane. Six-, nine and twelve year warranties are available for gas and electric models (as of January 2011). GE is a name that is synonymous with innovation, growth and a strong worldwide presence. GE products and services have their reach far and wide and can be found in practically every household or industry.
GE is undoubtedly the leader and the largest manufacturer when it comes to developing major appliances and ever since 1907, it has been introducing state-of-the-art appliances to create a difference in people’s lives. The wide range of GE hot water heaters can be broadly classified into standard and tankless water heaters. The standard range of water heaters consists of both electric water heaters and gas water heaters.
