Hybrid Electric Water Heaters
Home water heaters have lagged a bit behind other residential appliances when it comes to energy efficiency. But since the federal government issued new Energy Star requirements for heaters this year, manufacturers are entering the market with new options. The first in the nation to announce a new, more efficient model is GE, which is just ramping up production of its new hybrid-electric water heater here in Louisville. WFPL’s Kristin Espeland spoke with GE’s National Account Manager, Gregg Halladay, about the new technology.
