Our plumbers can provide expert advice as to which Stiebel Eltron hot water heater is best suited to your individual circumstance. Let’s have a look at their extensive range.
Stiebel Eltron Hot Water Systems
2 Phase Electric Instantaneous
One of Stiebel Eltron’s most popular hot water systems on the Australian market is the 2 phase electric instantaneous hot water heater. One of the major drawcards of this style of system is the precise temperature control that it allows. Instantaneous hot water units are also growing in popularity. This is due to growing concerns about the amount of energy that can be wasted by preheating water in storage tanks.
3 Phase Instantaneous
A Stiebel Eltron 3 phase instantaneous water heater ensures that heat loss due to storage is eliminated. It’s also compact, making these systems ideal for smaller homes or units where there is limited space. The 3 phase instantaneous hot water heater doesn’t even require a safe tray, flue or ventilation, so this system can be installed in all sorts of places.
Single Phase Electric Instantaneous
Stiebel Eltron single phase electric instantaneous hot water systems are best suited to situations in which the hot water demand is low, such as in basins or sinks. The single phase units are extremely energy efficient and deliver hot water on demand. One major advantage to the single phase units is that the small size of these systems means the units can be installed in areas where conventional storage units would not fit.
Open Vented Compact Storage
Another option to provide water to your sink or basin is the open vented compact storage water heater model. These units are manufactured with the goal of providing an immediate point of use hot water. This is particularly good for situations where the sink or basin is situated a significant distance from the home’s primary hot water unit. Furthermore, by locating one of these small units at your sink or basin there is the added benefit of energy conservation. This is because heat loss during long stretches of pipe from a centralised system is eliminated.
Mains Pressure Compact Storage
Similar to the Stiebel Eltron open vented compact storage water heater, the mains pressure compact storage water heater is designed for situations where hot water is needed without delay. This is good for sinks and basins. The major difference between the two styles of systems is that the mains pressure compact storage water heater is designed to service multiple points. It also has a correspondingly higher capacity of up to 15 litres. The one necessity for these systems is the availability of a power point, as the Stiebel Eltron operates on 6.5Amp 230V and must plug into a power point.
One of the major advantages of the Stiebel Eltron heat pump hot water system is that it provides a significant reduction in the electricity or gas required to provide your family with hot water. This passes on significant financial savings to the customer as well as producing less greenhouse gas emissions. Much like a solar hot water system, heat pumps harvest environmental energy to heat your water. The major difference is that whilst solar hot water systems capture the sun’s energy using solar panels installed on the roof, heat pumps utilise heat that is contained within the air. This means the system can operate when sunlight is scarce, as well as at night. What’s more, as no solar panels are required, you do not have to worry about damage to the panels due to extreme weather conditions.
Quality Stiebel Eltron Service
It is important to ensure that your unit is installed by a professional. That way it will be installed correctly, to not only run efficiently and effectively, but to also comply with appropriate regulations.
