GE to Showcase GeoSpring at Sept 2 Lunch and Learn

As mentioned in a previous post, MACED's Energy Efficient Enterprises Team will host a "Lunch and Learn" workshop, focusing on efficiency opportunities in the water heating and space heating. One of the featured technologies will be GE’s GeoSpring heat pump water heater, recently added to the state’s list of approved products for the federally funded Weatherization Assistance Program.

According to The Courier-Journal, the state recently purchased over 115 of these models, which reportedly use 62% less electricity than regular electric tank water heaters, for the Weatherization program.

Other water-heating topics to be presented:

  • geo-exchange waste heat recovery
  • gas condensing technology
  • tankless water heating systems — for water and hydronic space heating
  • solar water heating systems

Industry experts will lead conversations about these technologies, as well as opportunities for contractors to take advantage of energy efficiency efforts in the region. Featured speakers include: Angela Nagler (GE), Bob Peck (Water Furnace), Gary Bryant (Dealers LP), David Hall (Rinnai) and Josh Bills (MACED). For more info, contact .
