20 Jan 2013


Among heat pump water heaters, Stiebel Eltron’s Accelera 300 has the largest capacity (80 gal), highest energy factor (2.51), lowest power input (2.2 kW), and lowest power consumption (1739 kWh/year) as determined by DOE testing. Low-power consumption (500 W heat pump only, and 2200 W with backup element) makes the Accelera 300 a viable option for connecting to a PV system. Accelera 300 is Energy Star-certified, and is eligible for available state or local tax credits, or rebate incentives. There is also a 10-year warranty.
