2017-06-07  –   Stiebel Eltron launches new ‘Classic’ version of best-selling heat pump

Stiebel Eltron UK is introducing a new version of its best-selling WPL air source heat pump

The WPL Classic has been designed as a cost-effective and space-saving solution for housebuilders and developers that is highly integrated and easier than ever to install.


The original WPL was launched in 2013 and was hailed at the time as the most efficient air source product ever designed, with the highest COP available on the global market.


Stiebel Eltron worked with its customer base to create this new model, enhancing this award-winning product in line with direct user feedback.


The new Classic version still features key elements such as active cooling, electronic expansion valve, quiet running and modern design, and meets the requirements of most modern family homes by using pioneering inverter compressor technology to provide heating and hot water.


Mark McManus, Stiebel Eltron UK managing director, said: “The WPL remains one of our strongest products in terms of performance and sales, and by introducing the Classic we are offering a highly efficient product at an affordable price point."



“The WPL Classic is a simple plug-and-play unit, cutting down on installation time and costs, and is also a single-phase heat pump, meeting UK specifications.


“It is a perfect solution for housebuilders who are looking to buy in volume for small to medium-sized developments where space often comes at a premium. As an energy efficient solution that will minimise running costs and require little maintenance, the WPL Classic is excellent value.


“The unit has also been designed to work with our new space-saving HSBC integrated DHW and buffer cylinder, with the whole system enabled to connect to the internet, allowing for remote monitoring and control.


“Property owners will also get peace of mind with Stiebel Eltron’s 7-year extended warranty for heat pumps.”


Like its predecessor, the WPL Classic runs on a unique principle to other appliances currently available, using a bespoke inverter compressor that is tuned for maximum efficiency for UK climatic conditions. All component parts within the machine have been optimised to suit the UK demands. These unique design features enable Stiebel Eltron to present the highest possible Seasonal Performance on the market.


Stiebel Eltron is hosting a series of installer partner workshops across the UK to showcase the WPL Classic’s efficiency and innovation.
