The new range features cylinders that integrate the indoor components of a heat pump into one tidy, space-saving unit.
Lightweight and compact, the cylinders are pre-plumbed and pre-wired to offer a plug and play solution for engineers, which significantly reduces any difficulties in installing a heat pump.
Fitted with an indoor hot water tank and control system, the cylinders are matched with outdoor air-source heat pumps to create a practical heating solution, particularly in limited spaces and smaller dwellings.
Ranging from 180 to 300l capacity to meet any building’s requirements, certain models also include a buffer cylinder to store heat when demand is low.
The HSBB 180 S Plus and HSBC 225 S 1, in particular, are integrated with a building’s heat pump system seamlessly as they bring the domestic hot water (DHW) cylinder and hydraulic parts together into a single appliance.
Due to their compact size, the cylinders can be installed into often under-utilised areas of homes, such as an airing cupboard, and perform efficiently with low standby losses.
Meanwhile a large-area heat exchanger within the cylinders allows them to work effectively where there is high DHW demand.
The lightweight stainless steel structure of these two new cylinders makes them convenient for installers to transport. All the components within the cylinder are tested at the same time prior to going on the market to provide a fail-safe installation.
A new HSBC 220 model is also set to be added to the range in January 2024.
Mark McManus, STIEBEL ELTRON UK Managing Director, said: “The compact cylinder system range is designed to make the life of installers easier, offering an efficient, space-saving solution which pulls everything needed to see heat pumps work in a dwelling of any size.
“With demand for heat pumps increasing, we want to ensure that the UK has a raft of well-trained, expert installers available, but also make sure that those qualified technicians are supported and well equipped to deliver heat pumps in any situation.
“A part of this is making their implementation as easy as possible and the compact system cylinder range does exactly this for installers.”
