What are these GE appliances?
« on: April 06, 2012, 08:39:40 AM »
Seen this video of a GE factory on CNN this morning.

What are the appliances you keep seeing in the background that look like a water heater with a compressor and condenser on top of them?

My friend invented something like this, but the patent was owned by Westinghouse. He built one for himself and it powers his house in remote Oregon. The patent has been purchased by the some major electric company back east and still holds it.

A freon high side line (coiled up inside a water heater mounted in the attic) going to the condenser would be a better idea here in the south.
