FAQ
1. What is the difference between the WWK 222/302 heat pumps and the H-models?

The WWK 222/302 H hot water heat pumps have a smart element situated in the top of the hot water cylinder.  This smart element will switch on along with the heat pump function when a high volume of hot water is drawn off from the hot water tank. This smart element will assist the heat pump to heat approximately the top 80 litres. This smart element function is designed to aid hot water recovery for high use of hot water.

2. What is the active defrost feature on the STIEBEL ELTRON hot water heat pumps?

The WWK 222/302 (H) hot water heat pumps have an active defrost function that switches on when the frost monitor detects a build-up of hoar frost at the evaporator. When frost is detected, it will switch the fan off but will keep the compressor running. Hot vapor is directed to the evaporator and the condensor is shut off, this hot gas will begin to actively defrost the evaporator.

3. Do you manufacture a heat pump with an element?

Yes, the H-models, WWK 222 H and WWK 302 H, are heat pumps with smart elements. These models have a 1.7 kW element that when engaged will heat approximately the top 80 litres of the tank.

4. Can it operate on Tariff 33 in QLD and Off Peak 2 in NSW?

Yes, these tariffs are ideal for maximum savings.

5. How can the heat pump create hot water in the cold without an element?

The heat pumps have an active defrost function that can control any icing that occurs at lower air temperatures. The active defrost function will remove any hoar frost that occurs at the evaporator and then reverts back to hot water generation mode.

6. What is the current draw of the hot water heat pumps?

2.3 Amps on 240 Volts

7. Does a heat pump make a lot of noise when operating?

The new heat pumps have an encased compressor design to reduce noise. They are operating at only 45 dB. Heat pumps do make a sound when they are operating which is the sound of the compressor and fan. The noise from a heat pump is dependent on a number of factors, we encourage our customers to read the operating and installation guide to also take into account the positioning of the heat pump when installing.

8. How often should the condensate drain be checked on the hot water heat pumps?

The condensate drain and the top of the condensate pan should be checked at least monthly to remove any blockages that may have occurred via debris.

9. How big is the tank of the WWK 222 hot water heat pump?

220 litres.

10. How big is the tank of the WWK 302 hot water heat pump?

302 litres.

10. Can the STIEBEL hot water heat pumps be installed indoors?

Yes, these heat pumps have been designed to be installed either indoors or outdoors. A clear space of 13 m3 is required for indoor installations to allow for the cold air from the refrigeration system to diffuse.

REBATES

Hot Water Rebates Explained

Rebates and financial incentives are offered Australia-wide at a Federal and State level depending on the type of water heater that is being replaced and what type of new system is being installed. It is extremely beneficial that you have a good understanding of what rebate is offered to achieve the best savings possible.

REC Rebate Scheme

As of January 1st 2011, there have been changes made to the existing rebate scheme (REC) that was previously in operation.
A REC from a heat pump installed before the 31st of December 2010 has been reclassified as an LREC, or Large-scale generation certificate (LGC).
A REC from heat pumps installed on or after the 1st of January 2011 has since been known as an SREC, or Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STC).

What is an STC exactly?

Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) are an environmental type of currency which are issued after installation of water heating, solar power and any other renewable energy technology which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Small-scale Technology Certificates prices are market-based and will fluctuate depending on supply and demand. There are a number of STC trading companies that you can compare pricing through.
