Point-of-Use Tankless Electric Water Heater

Stiebel Eltron developed tankless electric water heating technology almost 90 years ago and continues as the industry pioneer and world leader. Our engineering and manufacturing tradition of excellence means you can depend on the performance and reliability of our products. Instead of storing hot water, DHC models are tankless, heating water instantaneously and endlessly as it flows through the unit. They are 99% efficient, and, unlike tank-type water heaters, have no stand-by energy losses. No venting is necessary, and the sleek, compact European design even allows for installation with the unit visible. DHC models are ideal for residential and commercial point-of-use sink applications including: bathrooms, cabins and cottages, office buildings, stores, malls, warehouses, restaurants, and gas stations. DHC models are sized based on the flow rate of the sink you are plumbing for hot water. The temperature of the hot water delivered by a DHC depends on the temperature of the incoming cold water, the water flow through the unit, and the size of the DHC model that is installed. DHC models excel at supplying water at a constant temperature rise but must be carefully matched to the application in order to operate properly.

Professional installation required
  • DHC 8-2 tankless electric water heaters are designed to provide hot water for 1 medium-flow lavatory sink in warm or cool climates, or 1 high-flow lavatory sink or low-flow kitchen sink in warm climates
  • DHC 8-2 models require 208/240 volt electric service with 1 dedicated 40 amp breaker and 8 gauge copper wiring
  • DHC models excel at supplying water at a constant temperature rise but the model size must be carefully matched to the application in order to operate properly
  • Installation should be as close to your draw off point as possible to make the wait for hot water as short as possible and maximize energy savings
  • DHC tankless electric water heaters do not need pressure relief valves, drains, or circulating pumps
  • The sleek European design is considerably smaller than a tank, saving space and allowing flexibility to determine the best location for installation
  • DHC units must be installed vertically with the water fittings pointing down
  • DHC tankless water heaters are ETL Listed for compliance with CSA and UL safety standards in the US and Canada
  • Water connections for DHC water heaters are 1/2 in. NPT and should be detachable (such as braided steel flex connectors or isolation valves) to allow for easy servicing of the unit
  • DHC tankless electric water heaters are exempt from seismic code
  • Overheat safety protection and thermal protection reset are standard
  • See warranty for complete details of the 3-year residential and commercial warranty against defects in workmanship and materials under normal use
