Great service!

Had this for over a year and was doing very well until the relief valve started leaking. One call to stiebel Elton and it was fixed the very next day. Now it's back to it's good old self. Very happy with product - energy efficient. Also very happy with service.
Energy efficient and great service
Can get a little noisy

So noisy from day one, now we have had the pressure relief valve fail

published

So worried, we have had system for five years, we don't really think we saved anything on electricity, it has been noisy from first day, disturbs my sleep when it comes on and when it goes off all night. We had to have anode replaced within the first two weeks and now the pressure relief valve has had to be replaced. Now the system runs all night so scared power bill will be higher than ever. Expecting the whole thing to break down now as brother has same system, around same age and it blew completely wasting his tank water and running up his electricity bill. Local plumbing suplies stated we were lucky it has lasted this long because most don't.
Thought it was going to be energy efficient
It's does not function as promised

Stay away from this rubbish product

published

We are now on our THIRD unit in 4 years and the latest one failed after 2 days!!!!!!!. Sure the power savings are notable but each unit has failed at about this time of year when it's winter, suppose to be designed for European winters??? and we are in Australia.The company initially were difficult to deal with but I must say they replaced the latest unit quickly, just a pity that it has failed after 2 days....Luckily it is covered by warranty but that does not help a family of 5 when we have no hot water for the next few days in the dead of winter..
Power savings
Keep failing once weather gets cold

Kinda OK

published

Had it installed two and a half years ago. It failed ones, thankfully when it was still on warranty and fixed free of charge. Saves us a little on power bills, but won’t make it up for the price in a lifetime. Produces a trickle of warmish water (40C at the bathroom tap). I've spent a good part of my life researching online if the output and the temperature can be adjusted with no result so far. The manufacturer's web site contact form is good if you like receiving "Please feel free to contact Stiebel as soon as possible on 1800 153 351 to discuss your concerns" emails.

Thank you for your reply STIEE.
I already kindly contacted you directly on the phone a few times before.
I just wish your department could gather enough resources to hire someone who is able to read and write emails.

Beware noise

I totally agree, the noise is ridiculous.

Noise Level is driving me nuts.

published

I have had my Heat Pump for approx.10 months. I am finding my service is very efficient, although it runs for a considerable time when reheating, which is the only draw back for me as I have it installed where the original gas heater was and that is close to all the living areas including the main bedroom, although it is outside it is under a verandah which extenuates the operating noise. I have had to have a timer installed to make sure it doesn't run during the night.

Does not live up to its promise

published

Our Stiebel Eltron heat pump is just over two years old and the pressure valve has failed. I am not sure how much this is going to cost us and how much water has leaked out of the unit over the last few days but I am sure its not going to be cheap! Very disappointed as the product was sold as the most reliable on the market however its obviously not. Of course this will not be covered under warranty because it is just outside the two year mark!!!!
Did reduce electricity costs
Limited warranty, not suitable for Australian climate, does not seem to handle extremes in temperature.

Still not happy with noise level but will wait and see if replacement valve helps and if not discuss further with Stiebel.

Oily residue

published

We had installed a Stiebel heat pump water heater in Northern Qld last year. We placed fly screen around top to stop insects and geckos etc getting into the works. I have noticed however an oily residue around the base of the unit. Mostly around the front left foot. Any clue what this may be?
Efficient. Cost saving.
Oil residue at base. Installers dented unit.

Follow up service

published

We 'inherited' this heat pump when we bought our house. It broke, but cannot fault the service, still under warranty and all done and back on track after 2 days. My only comment would be tgat after only 3 years it is dissappointing that there was a problem in the first place. Well done stiebel.

Does not last long. On to the second unit in 3 years and it is starting to fail.

published

Bought one of these to cut down on power bills. The first unit was delivered and installed OK, power consumption was light initially. After 18 months the power use gradually rose and the unit failed at two years. After inspection (the refrigerant charge had leaked) and Stiebel replaced the heater. Now the second heater is going the same way as the first, power use is rising, triple what it was a few months ago.

Refrigerant charge leaks.

Hello Stiebel can yopu help me my e mail gtbbkk@yahoo.com

Unbeatable after sales service A1!

published

I have had my heat pump for twelve months and I am very happy . My electricity consumption has gone down considerable. It is a bit noisy, due to the position of install, but since having a noise reduction cover put on to it, I would say the noise level has gone down by 50%. Further more I found Stiebel's service is second to none. On two occasions I contacted the company and within 24hrs I was contacted and on both occasions I had a technician within 24hrs fixing the problem. There aren't to many places about where one gets that kind of service.
Energy efficient & saves money on power bills

WWK300A

Like many people here, my Stiebel Eltron WWK300A makes an incredible noise (nasty mechanichal noise), I can hear it from anywhere in my house, and a neighbor has just built a bedroom a few feet away from it. After so much expense I feel it is money down the drain. Would never recommend it because of this reason.

They have a baffle kit for this but it does cost extra. With such a great HWS I cannot fathom why they don't supply it with the unit and stop all these noise complaints.
