Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim1955 Great Savings
I bought & installed this water heater in our house about 11 months ago and the savings on gas was awesome!
We use a gas dryer, range, furnace & water heater. Our monthly budget was $98.00 with an old 40 gallon tank type water heater. Our new budget is now $48.00.
Install is a little challenging but, not impossible. Download & read the directions completely before you start the insatllation to make yourself farmiliar with the product.
You can get the specialty venting & installation valves on line or at your local wholesale plumbing supply house.
All in all. A great value!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DL760 Great water heater!
I installed this water heater in my house about a year ago and I couldn't be happier.I have not had a sutuation where it could not deliver enough hot water (I can run 2 showers and the dishwasher at the same time). The installation is a bit more difficult than a tank water heater but it just takes a little research and you will find all the information needed to install it. You can even download the installation manual before deciding if you want purchase/install yourself. The concentric vent pipe is available online.

This appliance is NOT for the average homeowner to install. It requires professional knowledge and specific vent pipes that are not included or even mentioned in it's installation directions. The manufacturer helpline also didn't mention them. Contact a licensed pro to figure out what the REAL cost will end up being.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mrduks The problem is installation
Requires separate gas line run, electric outlet, and venting like a gas fireplace. $2000+ for installation. Puts the energy payback out 20 years!

Any local WHOLESALE plumbing supply store will have to vent pipe available. Yes it is a shame HD does not stock it or even have it available for special order. DO NOT go to your local HD because they will give you the REEM kit which WILL NOT fit the GE.
Nowhere does it say this is a do-it-yourself job, and unless you are comfortable (and licensed) to reroute gas lines do yourself a favor and hire a licensed gas fitter. With the direct vent piping and everything they cost us just about a grand each to have them installed.
As far as the product itself it works great. Occasionally I think there is a burb in the software and it will not heat to the desired/set temp. Shutting off the faucet/shower giving it a couple seconds to shut down than opening the faucet again seems to fix this issue.
As far as savings, our gas bill is nothing, and we can fill our 500 gallon hottub with 100* water right from the hose and save it taking 2 days for the hottub heater to bring it up to temp.
With Nstar charging $12/month to be a customer our gas bill during the spring thru fall averages about $14, whereas it was $50-$60 with our old water tank. So it has pretty much already paid for itself in under 2 yrs.

Horrible experience. Vent kit is impossible to find. Rheem will not work. Stay away!
