Stiebel Eltron Indirect Water Heater Systems
Many people are unfamiliar with the concept of an indirect water heater and the incredible energy savings these systems provide. Amongst their line of whole home solutions, Stiebel Eltron offers a line of indirect water heaters. These indirect water heaters come with either one or two heat exchangers and can be used in conjunction with a number of different heating sources such as solar panels or a boiler. This line has numerous different models varying in size and between one and two heat exchangers. Depending on these factors the hot water storage capacities of these indirect water heaters ranges from 39 gallons to 162 gallons, offering water heating solutions for widely varying hot water demands.
Though these systems utilize a storage tank, they are engineered with thermal efficiency in mind and have very low standby heat losses compared to many other storage tank systems. For added durability these Stiebel Eltron water heaters are made with heavy gauge steel. Additionally, the anode rod has a wear indicator so that owners can easily tell when the sacrificial anode rod needs replacing in order to prevent rusting of the tank.
