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.

“We are honored that the GeoSpring has been selected for the BuildingGreen
Top-10 list,” said Stephen Downer, GE product general manager for water
products.” With its innovative heat pump technology, the GeoSpring uses less
than half of the energy of a standard electric water heater.* “There are very
few products that can save homeowners as much money as the GeoSpring on their
annual utility bills,” said Downer.

GreenSpec, which is BuildingGreen’s online directory, lists more than 2,200
environmentally preferable products, with key insights on the green attributes
of each product and the most critical green issues for each product category.
All research on products is completed independently, with a heavy emphasis on
remaining unbiased and providing the consumer quality information.

BuildingGreen prides itself on its ability to deliver the awarded company and
product wider recognition and enthusiasm, as well as, helping industry
professionals and policy makers improve their environmental performance and
reduce the adverse impacts of buildings.

The official public announcement was made by Wilson at the U.S. Green Building
Council’s Greenbuild conference in San Francisco.

GeoSpring (model GEH50DEEDSR) is available at national retailers, such as
Lowe’s and Sears, and national plumbing distributors, such as Ferguson, as
well as many local retailers and distributors. The estimated retail price is
$1,299.** For more information on features and availability, visit
