Constant hot water supply is very essential in homes and work places. Traditionally an electrical water boiler was installed for this purpose and one had to pay very fat utility bills for the same. The novel idea of using the heat pump technology for water heating has been received because of the advantage of reduced bills. Steibel eltron water heater is a pump water heater which is very much in use.
Stiebel Eltron Tempra 15 uses the concept of heat pump which is a very new concept for heating up the water. The heat pump concept is not new but its use to heat water is a brand new idea. Its working is similar to an air conditioner. Heat extracted from the air is not let out and wasted but it is used to heat water. The efficiency of the whole system is dependent on the heat in the ambient air. If the air is hot the heat dumped into the water is higher. The whole system of the Steibel Eltron Tempra 20 takes about 1 kwh of electricity and gets heat equal to 3 to 5 kwh.
This system of water heating ensures great saving. Standard steibel eltron water heater has a storage capacity of 80 gallons and reduces the utility bill incurred to heat water by about 80 percent. It has an added advantage of dehumidifying the air along with cooling it. Stiebel eltron water heater can be used in almost all climates. The unit can be placed in the garage or even inside the house to pick up heat from the ambient air during warm climate. During winter months it can be placed in the basement which keeps the basement dry and provides dehumidified air as a bonus. It is also loaded with an electrical element as a backup which switches on automatically whenever the heat pump is unable to meet the demand of the hot water.
