    There is, or atleast there was a rebate from CL&P if you were replacing an electric unit. I did not qualify for that, nor did I qualify for the federal rebate because I used that on my pellet stove.

    I won't be replacing an electric unit... so I don't get that one either.
    but I have not used any other rebates (got my stove a year before the $500 ones :( )

    I have a 40 gallon electric water heater (Rheem I think) being installed on the 16th. I was going to spring for the GeoSpring (pun intended I guess) but wasn't in the budget and was a little wary of the mixed reviews.

    I just really got tired of wasting oil throughout the summer, and by all accounts I should be able to save some money having an electric heater for my hot water.

    CL&P rebate came in 3 weeks! If you find a 10% off coupon 9 year extended warranty is basically free!

    Had ours for about a year now. Flawless. Love it. Saves a few bucks on the electric bill, and will require much less power to run on the generator if power goes out. Have not yet tried that, though, so hoping it performs well on the gen.

    Had our geospring for a little more than a year and a half. Never saw this thread.

    Ours had the lower element gasket torn during manufacturing. Worked great for 6 days then leaked about 40 gallons into the basement before we came home to the battery operated water alarm screaming.

    We turned off the power and water then I drained the remaining water in the tank. Rented a carpet cleaner from Home Depot (the rental dept is open until 10p here) to pull the water up out of the carpet (luckily with no padding under it in the basement). Ran the carpet cleaner- not soaping, just pulling water up- for about 4 hours that night and also rented a big dehumidifier and fan then ran those for 10 days. Soaped the carpet good twice the next day with no permanent damage. Only some staining to drywall, and luckily no mold. I replaced the element and gasket (these are standard GE elements) on my own the next morning so we'd be able to continue use, but I never mentioned that to GE so we'd still get prompt service since this was a brand new WH- and I wanted GE to come out GE parts back in.

    The bastard was GE support. I won't go too crazy on the story since I'm still a bit bitter about it, but I grew up in Schenectady, NY (home of GE) and my grand father was an engineer for GE for 30+ years. We ONLY buy GE product in our family. At the time we had just ordered a full kitchen of new GE appliances too.

    IT TOOK GE 5 DAYS TO GET A TECH TO OUR HOUSE. We live 25 miles from Boston, so we're not remote by any means. I spent those 5 days calling the GE water heater hotline relentlessly, then the local service co non stop. I was fuming. It took me posting a disappointment tweet on Twitter for any real action to happen. The VP of the appliance division called me directly and offered to get involved. The tech came the next day and replaced the element (again since I did it once) and verified the failed gasket for GE's insurance claim.

    In the end, GE's insurance cut us a fair check for the damage so it really didn't hurt. However the service provided by GE was abysmal, and I can only imagine what would happen if a person wasn't able to turn the water off or replace the gasket on their own for 5 days...

    The water heater works well. We use the boost function often when people visit, since the recovery on hybrid is marginal even for a two adult household. Our next unit will likely be a bigger standard style water heater. The power savings is fair, but I'm sure once we start adding to our family, we'll exceed the capabilities of the geospring.

    I found some Info online to stop the beeping, push the reset button 10 times, then hold it for 5 seconds, did that yesterday morning, so far so good, I do like the dehumidifier effect as I don't have to run my dehumidifier anymore, another weird thing is past 2 late fall the water will get cold, I have to turn off the breaker to "reboot" it and It's fine for another year, this is running on heat pump only mode, this fall I left it on hybrid mods and did not have cold water

    The filter light on mine just started beeping. I tried the same thing you did with reseting the filter light but it keeps coming back. Going to call GE today. What parts did they send you and we're you able to fix it?
