Home Depot Touts Crappy GE SmartWater Boiler As “High Efficiency”

Home Depot markets the GE SmartWater water heaters as “high efficiency.” But when you read the government energy guide on the side, it turns out the boiler is inefficient for its class.

When questioned why they chose to market it this way, a Home Depot rep said the heater was considered “high efficiency” because, “it’s the highest efficiency Home Depot sells.”

Don’t believe the hype! Check the energy guide on the side before purchasing boilers and other large appliances. — BEN POPKEN
