General Electric's amazing energy saving appliances!
Buildaroo.com checks out the General Electric booth at the 2009 PCBC. We ran into Steve Anderson from the GE Eco-imagination program and Bob Salomey, global product manager for GE appliances. They review several GE products and their green applications:
-The Smart-Dispense Dishwasher, which is energy star certified along with all GE Dishwashers. This particular model regulates detergent use as well.
-The Smart-Dispense washer and dryer uses similar technology to regulate laundry detergent. The washer also communicates with the dryer to lat it know how much power it needs to dry the most recent wash load.
-The GE Hybrid Hot Water Heater, a 50-gallon residential water heater that reportedly cuts water heater energy consumption in half. The product also features a vacation mode, which allows the heater to preform at a reduced power setting when residents are away from home for extended periods of time. This water heater is also energy star certified.
