Stiebel Eltron launches new version of WPL heat pump

Published: 06 June 2017


Stiebel Eltron UK is introducing a new plug-and-play version of its best-selling WPL air source heat pump.

The WPL Classic has been designed as a cost-effective and space-saving solution for housebuilders and developers that is integrated and easier to install. 
​The original WPL with inverter technology was launched in 2013 and was hailed at the time as the most efficient air source product ever designed, with the highest COP available on the global market.  

Stiebel Eltron worked with its customer base to create this new model, enhancing this award-winning product in line with direct user feedback.

The new Classic still features key elements such as active cooling, electronic expansion valve, quiet running and modern design, and meets the requirements of most modern family homes by using pioneering inverter compressor technology to provide heating and hot water.

Mark McManus, Stiebel Eltron UK managing director, said: “The WPL remains one of our strongest products in terms of performance and sales, and by introducing the Classic we are offering a highly efficient product without the high price.

“The WPL Classic is a simple plug-and-play unit, cutting down on installation time and costs, and is also a single-phase heat pump, meeting UK specifications.

“It is a perfect solution for housebuilders who are looking to buy in volume for small to medium-sized developments where space often comes at a premium. As an energy efficient solution that will minimise running costs and require little maintenance, the WPL Classic is excellent value.

“The unit has also been designed to work with our new space-saving HSBC integrated DHW and buffer cylinder, with the whole system enabled to connect to the internet, allowing for remote monitoring and control.

“Property owners will also get peace of mind with Stiebel Eltron’s 7-year extended warranty for heat pumps.”

Like its predecessor, the WPL Classic uses a bespoke inverter compressor that is tuned for maximum efficiency for UK climatic conditions. All component parts within the machine have been optimised to suit UK demands. 

Stiebel Eltron is hosting a series of installer partner workshops across the UK to showcase the WPL Classic. For more information, call  0151 346 2300.
