Stiebel Eltron Accelera® 220 E Heat Pump Water Heaters
The Stiebel Eltron 220 Accelera® provides energy efficiency in addition to comfort. This 58-gallon is super-insulated and minimizes stand-by losses means less energy is wasted. The Accelera is engineered to satisfy 90% of hot water needs through the use of the heat pump alone.
Heat pump water heater technology redefines water heater efficiency, producing efficiencies more than 3 times a conventional water heater would. For every watt, an Accelera’s compressor and fan uses, the equivalent of 3-5 watts of hot water are generated.
In warm climates, an Accelera® is placed either in the garage, where it uses the heat from the outside air to make hot water or inside the house, where it helps with the air conditioning load. In cooler climates, the unit is typically placed in the basement where it also acts as a dehumidifier. You get hot water at a discount plus a drier basement as well.
* Installation location has to have a minimum size of 10´ x 10´ x 8´.
