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 due to growing concerns about the amount of energy that can be wasted by preheating water in storage tanks. A Stiebel Eltron 3 phase instantaneous water heater ensures that heat loss due to storage is eliminated, and also facilitate conservation of space, making these systems ideal for smaller homes or units were area available for hot water system installation is scarce. One of the reasons that the Stiebel Eltron 3 phase instantaneous hot water heater is so compact and space-efficient is that many of these systems do not require a safe tray, flue or ventilation. As such, the areas in which this system can be installed are far more flexible than a storage style system.
In addition to their 3 phase instantaneous hot water heaters, Stiebel Eltron also manufacture single phase electric instantaneous hot water systems, which are best suited to situations in which the hot water demand is low, such as in basins or sinks. This is due to the fact that these units have a correspondingly lower flow rate of around 1.5 litres per minute. Similar to the Stiebel Eltron 3 phase instantaneous hot water heaters, the single phase units are extremely energy efficient and deliver hot water on demand. One major advantage to the Stiebel Eltron single phase units is that the small size of these systems mean that these units can be installed in areas where conventional storage units would not fit. It is however important to ensure that your Stiebel Eltron single phase instantaneous hot water unit is installed Just last week one of our Metropolitan Plumbers attended a call out for one of our loyal customers, who had recently had a Stiebel Eltron system incorrectly installed by another company. Luckily our plumber was able to quickly identify the flaw and rectify the installation to ensure that the system was installed in compliance with appropriate legislation as well as the manufacturer’s specifications!

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 such as in the sink or basin. The major difference between the two styles of systems is that the mains pressure compact storage water heater is designed to service multiple points, and 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.

Much like a solar hot water system, heat pumps harvest environmental energy to heat your water, however the major difference is that whilst solar hot water systems capture the sun’s energy using solar panels installed on the roof of the home, heat pumps utilise heat that is contained within air. This is advantageous from the perspective that the system can operate when sunlight is scarce, as well as at night! Because no solar panels are required, you do not have to worry about damage to the panels due to extreme weather conditions or neighbourhood children kicking balls onto your roof.
