Installation Options: Indoor vs. Outdoor

The WWK222H heat pump offers the flexibility of both indoor and outdoor installation. Integral cylinders combine buffer and DHW cylinders in one, offering a space-saving solution ideal for homes with limited space. For indoor installation, a clear space of 13m3 is required to ensure proper functioning and maintenance access.

The electrical installation also entails specific electrical requirements and associated pipe work to ensure safe and effective operation.

Indoor Installation Benefits

Indoor installation comes with its own set of benefits. By placing the heat pump indoors, you’re protecting it from harsh weather conditions, which can help to extend the lifespan of the unit. Thanks to its encased compressor design, the heat pump operates quietly, an added advantage of indoor installation. The compressor and fan noise of the heat pump is reduced in compliance with European Standard EN12102, thanks to the encased design.

As a result, you can enjoy reduced noise pollution within your home environment.

Outdoor Installation Advantages

Outdoor installation of the WWK222H heat pump offers its own unique advantages:

  • Greater installation flexibility

  • Does not necessitate the allocation of dedicated indoor space

  • Especially advantageous for homes with limited indoor space, enabling homeowners to fully utilize their internal living areas without accommodating the heat pump.

Additionally, installed outdoors, installation outdoor allows for easier access for maintenance and servicing activities, contributing to the overall convenience and efficiency of upkeep.

Solar PV System Compatibility

Elevating energy efficiency through heat pump technology, the WWK222H heat pump offers the following features:

  • Compatible with a solar PV system, transforming it into a thermal battery and further boosting energy efficiency

  • Can be integrated into smart systems by networking with solar PV systems and energy management tools

  • Optimizes the use of solar power generated on-site

Even better, customers installing new solar PV systems or upgrading existing ones can benefit from the Solar Homes Program in Victoria, which provides rebates, loans, and interest-free battery loans, making it an Australian conditions market leader.

Connection Process

To maximize the benefits of solar PV system compatibility, the connection process must be performed by a qualified electrician to ensure safety and optimal performance. An Energy Management System (EMS) can predict solar PV generation, which helps to intelligently allocate energy to appliances like the heat pump. The EMS optimizes energy usage by managing the operation of appliances, giving priority to the heat pump and postponing others to maximize the use of generated solar power.

The EMS learns the energy usage patterns of the household over time and improves the allocation of energy from solar PV, further minimizing the heat pump’s running costs.

Potential Savings

Connecting the heat pump with a solar PV system can result in significant savings. Here are some benefits of connecting the heat pump to a solar PV system:

  • Optimized timing for heating water and increased utilization of solar energy, reducing grid consumption

  • Cost-efficient heating and cooling, with savings up to 74% on hot water energy use compared to conventional electric water heaters

  • Environmental benefits, as it reduces reliance on fossil fuels and decreases carbon emissions

By connecting your heat pump to a solar PV system, you can enjoy both financial and environmental advantages.

This integration significantly lowers a building’s carbon footprint, with reported reductions in CO2 emissions by 64% from 5.4 tons to under 2.0 tons per year.

Warranty and Customer Support

Investing in the WWK222H heat pump means not only acquiring a product but also securing peace of mind. The heat pump comes with a comprehensive warranty for different components, including:

  • 5-year warranty for the cylinder and condenser

  • 2-year warranty for the sealed refrigeration system

Sizing and Capacity: Choosing the Right Heat Pump

Considering both the size and capacity of your hot water heat pumps is essential for meeting your household’s specific hot water needs. Making the right choice can ensure that you have efficient and reliable hot water supply. The Stiebel Eltron WWK302 Heat Pump, for example, is suitable for households with 3-6 people, indicating its capacity range.

Here’s a more thorough look at how to decide on the appropriate cylinder capacity and size for your heat pump.

Determining Cylinder Capacity

The appropriate cylinder capacity for your Stiebel Eltron heat pump depends on several factors, including the number of occupants, water usage habits, and peak hot water demand times. Daily hot water consumption per person can range from 30 to 60 liters, varying according to individual usage patterns.

The WWK222H heat pump water heater features:

  • Provides up to 360 liters of 40°C shower temperature water from a 220-liter tank

  • Smart element at the top of the hot water cylinder assists in heating the top 80 liters during high hot water demand

  • Enhances the WWK222H’s capability to meet increased usage

For homes with multiple bathrooms or higher peak demand, a larger cylinder may be needed.

Sizing Guide

Stiebel Eltron’s sizing guide assists users in choosing the appropriate heat pump model by considering the number of household members and typical hot water usage. For households with higher occupancy or increased demand for hot water, the sizing guide recommends selecting a heat pump with a larger capacity to prevent frequent on and off cycling and ensure consistent supply.
