Stiebel Eltron Classic Air Source Heat Pump, for a renovated bungalow

Previous System: Inefficient and outdated oil boiler

New System: Stiebel Eltron Classic Air Source Heat Pump, with combined hot water cylinder and buffer vessel

Stiebel Eltron Classic Air Source Heat Pump

We were approached by a local architect who was undertaking the conversion of a 1970’s bungalow and wanted to install a renewable heating system. Because the project was to be highly insulated, the compact, new Stiebel Eltron Classic WPL-9 Air Source Heat Pump proved to be ideal.

The Stiebel Eltron Classic Air Source Heat Pump offers very high levels of efficiency, virtually silent operation and is designed to be quick and easy to install. 

Once the client had passed us the plans for the project, we were able to begin work on the MCS approved system design. We are required to produce a design for both the heat pump and the space heating and domestic hot water, to ensure that the entire system produces sufficient heat and hot water on even the coldest days.

Stiebel Eltron Classic and HSBC-200 Hot Water Cylinder

Stiebel Eltron offers their heat pumps in a number of packs, designed to cover every type of installation. The pack selected included the Stiebel Eltron Classic air source heat pump, and the pre-plumbed Stiebel Eltron HSBC-200 heat pump cylinder and buffer tank. This attractive and easy to install unit offers a high quality, yet quick and easy installation. This means the client gets excellent German quality at a very attractive price.

One of the deciding factors for the client was the reduced running costs of the air source heat pump, compared to a fossil fuel heating system and the payback from Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive. The RHI still provides a healthy return for those wishing to go down the heat pump route, usually paying for the system within the 7 year payback period. The government has confirmed its commitment to the Domestic RHI for both ground source and air source heat pumps.
