The Stiebel Eltron ground source heat pump takes energy from the ground or a water source and converts it into usable heat for your home, keeping your property warm even at sub-zero outdoor temperatures. Depending on your situation and the amount of land or water that you have available you can be kept warm using the earth’s natural resources.
It is constantly warm below the surface of the ground, even when it is bitterly cold outside. You can benefit from this fact with a ground source heat pump. Using liquid brine, the heat pump collects heat from the ground and converts it into energy for heating and hot water.
The ratio of heating output to the required electricity input is measured in heat pumps by the “coefficient of performance” (COP). Your ground source heat pump from STIEBEL ELTRON achieves a COP of up to five. This means that even at temperatures below freezing, it generates up to five parts of heat from one part electricity. Since your geothermal probe(s) can be installed vertically into the generally between 40 to 150 metres deep in the ground, the surface area required can be comparatively small. If you have a good amount of land you can install an horizontal ground array to collect your energy or with a water source installation you can use loops or specialised heat collectors in the body of water.
The temperature affects how healthy and alert you are. The temperature range in which you constantly feel at your energetic best is narrow. The Stiebel Eltron top of the range heat pumps ensure a healthy room climate. If they are equipped with a cooling function, they even do so in summer as well. The appliance cools the heating water that flows through your underfloor heating system, which lowers the room temperature. This increases your living comfort and vitality.
Inverter technology – keeping a good balance Conventional heat pumps are either on or off. By contrast, our heat pumps with inverter technology are much more sophisticated. They expertly deliver precisely the output needed throughout your home for a comfortable indoor environment. This is not only more energy efficient, but also much less noisy. This is because the compressor operates, on average, with a lower output and added to the sound-proofing this dramatically reduces any noise breakout from the unit.
All Stiebel Eltron heat pumps are available as individual units or as complete packages with DHW cylinders, buffer vessels and the necessary accessories for a complete system. The packages not only add the security of ideally matched products but you will also benefit from a packaged price which offers a more competitive price than the individual item costs.
