PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # DHC 5-2

Stiebel Eltron developed tankless electric water heating technology 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. Refer to the DHC Sizing Guide and Temperature Rise Chart under 'More Views' to determine which model you need. Call Stiebel Eltron at 800.582.8423 if you have any sizing questions.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as described, meets my needs I used this at a handwashing sink in my workshop. The 4800 Watt heater raises incoming water temperature about 40-44 degrees F at the flow that I use, which is consistent with the manufacturer's specifications, which are available as a pdf file from the Home Depot page describing the product. Note that this termperature rise will -just- reach 100F when incoming water temperature is about 55F. It's fine for making handwashing comfortable, but you would need a bigger heater if you want hotter water or larger flow rate. The compact size of this heater makes installation easy, and there is no plumbing code requirement for an added expansion tank, as is required for tank-type water heaters. September 2, 2015
