Stiebel Eltron Accelera Water Heater Reviews - The Accelera 300 Heat Pump water heater from Stiebel Eltron is an 80-gallon heat pump water heater with an energy factor of 2.5 which is very high compared to the average electric or gas water heaters which normally carry energy factors of less than 1.

Stiebel Eltron Accelera Water Heater Reviews

The Stiebel Eltron Accelera heat pump water heater has a heat pump integrated with the top of the water heater. When the thermostat inside the tank drops below the set point the heat pump unit kicks on and through the process of refrigeration, heat is transferred from the air surrounding the water heater into the water inside the tank through the process of conduction from the condenser to the tank to the water. Jacket losses are minimized by the way of good insulation, however, Stiebel Eltron does not mention recovery time.

While these heat pump water heaters are very efficient the recovery time is usually very slow, during heavy use the water heater may not be able to keep up with the demand. Another issue with heat pump waters is the noise they make. Basement installations are okay as long as noise is not a factor but be careful about installing these units in closets near living or sleeping areas as the noise may be annoying.
