Renewable energies will become the norm for the future of energy supply as more people recognise the benefits of green and self-generated power from renewable sources.

Fossil fuels are in decline on the electricity market – too harmful to the climate and becoming ever more scarce. Nowadays, alternative energies using the sun, wind and water are being used to generate green power.

So it is only logical to act in good time to convert the largest energy consumer in your home – the heating system – to these future-proof forms of energy. As nearly 60 % of energy consumed in Australian homes is used for heating and cooling as well as domestic hot water, this makes perfect sense. So there is plenty of scope for implementing the energy transition in your own home.

AJ’s Plumbing work with Stiebel Eltron, a company which has become synonymous with high quality space heating, water heating and renewable energy products. Below are details of a range of their products including air source and geothermal hydronic heat pumps which AJ’s Plumbing can source, install and maintain for your property.

Air source hydronic heating heat pumps

Outdoor air is supplied to the air source heat pump – installed either indoors or outdoors – via flexible hoses and a quiet fan. A heat exchanger extracts the latent energy from the air which is converted by the heat pump into useful heat for your home. Even at icy temperatures as low as –20 °C, the air source heat pump still operates efficiently and economically, all the while impressing with its outstanding COP. Very high flow temperatures can also still be achieved without backup from a booster heater.

WPL 25 AC / WPL 25 ACS

Enjoy comfortable warmth in your home during the chilly winter months thanks to the WPL 25 AC(S) range of air source hydronic heat pumps from STIEBEL ELTRON. Heating your home with energy harvested from the air, hydronic heating is a cost-effective way to keep your home warm and cosy. Designed for outdoor installation in Australian conditions, the WPL 25 AC and WPL 25 ACS systems is a perfect start for the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies in your home.
