Product of the year for the houses of the year
Stiebel Eltron LWZ 8 CS integral unit wins award
In the category "Product of the Year - Heating and Ventilation", the Stiebel Eltron integral unit LWZ 8 CS was awarded the Callwey Award at the Houses of the Year ceremony. The LWZ 8 CS is particularly impressive due to its compact design: Air-to-water heat pump, ventilation and domestic hot water tank are efficiently combined here on only a little more than one square metre of installation space.
In recent years, the LWZ integral unit from Stiebel Eltron has become the building technology darling of architects, builders and house manufacturers. "The award for Solution of the Year 2022 makes us very proud 23 years after the market launch of the very first LWZ - it shows how innovative the development of the unit was right from the start and how the technology has been optimized in recent years," explains Head of Corporate Communication Henning Schulz, who received the award at the ceremony in the German Museum of Architecture DAM Ostend in Frankfurt am Main. The LWZ fulfils all building services functions: heating, hot water, ventilation and, if desired, cooling. The all-in-one unit therefore forms the heart of a home and, thanks to its compact design, also saves valuable planning and installation time.
