The SNU 5 compact single point of use electric storage water heater from Stiebel Eltron has been named as a finalist in the Water Saving Product of the Year category of the Master Plumbers and Gasfitters Association of Western Australia's 2012 Awards for Excellence.
The SNU 5 is engineered to deliver hot water quickly, the SNU 5 can save both water and energy through a number of clever innovations and features. The compact design allows for convenient installation underneath a sink, close to where the hot water is required. This reduces the amount of piping required and the time it takes for hot water to arrive at the outlet. This is especially the case in home installations where the central hot water service is located a long way from the point of use, creating "dead legs" of cold water which have to be drawn off before usable hot water arrives at the outlet.
The SNU 5 compact electric storage hot water system also has a unique "Anti-drip" function that helps to save water. When water is heated the hot water expands, as the hot water expands the "drips" that would normally occur at the tap spout are instead collected by a special internal expansion chamber that releases this water back into the tank once a draw-off is requested again.
The SNU 5 hot water system is ideal for isolated sinks like BBQ areas, alfresco's or kitchen sink. To find out more about the Stiebel Eltron SNU 5 call one of our local in house customer service representatives on our Free Call number 1800 153 351 (Australia).
