Pros: Very high efficiency and easy to use.
Cons: Needs drain line, larger than average, unheated, space for installation
Hello there, i thought I'd throw another added benefit of the GE Hybrid in there that some of the others don't have, and many may overlook. There are more and more options out there for Hybrids now but as a plumber here in AZ I personally prefer the GE over others due to one reason in particular, the tank. The GE's inner tank is made of glass not metal like most others. In turn this means no rusting out of the tank. Here in AZ the water is very hard and we replace on average 1 water heater a weak due to the tank rusting out and the home owner, in some cases, waking up to a flooded garage. And that usually happens just after the 6yr standard warranty runs out. So if you live in an area where hard water kills your tanks this may be another factor to think about.
