Electrical Thermal Storage (ETS) Heaters
Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) is a technology that is becoming more popular with consumers. It is 100% efficient and provides a reliable source of heat for homes and offices. ETS systems are economical because they allow power companies to manage energy load and demand while allowing consumers take advantage of lower, off-peak rates.
During off-peak hours, ETS heaters convert electricity into heat and store the heat in specially designed high-density ceramic bricks which are capable of storing vast amounts of heat for extended periods of time. The heat stored in the brick core of the ETS unit is regulated (either manually or automatically) according to seasonal weather conditions. You just set the heater's thermostat to your desired comfort level and then as the thermostat calls for heat, the stored heat is circulated evenly and quietly by a fan inside the unit.

GE Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater
The latest in water heating technology. To create the next generation of water heaters, GE redesigned this appliance from the ground up. The result is a revolutionary new product that can reduce water heater expenses up to 62% and save $320 every year. How does it work? It's like a refrigerator in reverse. A compressor and evaporator are integrated into the unit to draw in ambient heat from surrounding air using two variable speed fans. Coils wrap the tank all the way to the bottom and transfer heat to the water inside the tank.
