Product Overview

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great ! We are very satisfied was easy to install and great help from their customer service for some questions. Works with 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Value Great in line water heater. I'm replacing the first one I purchased 10 years ago. I bought the same make an model because it worked well for ten years and im looking forward to ten more. To sum it up in one word......Value. May 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DHC 8-2 7.2 KW 1.09 GPM POINT-OF-USE TANKLESS ELECTRIC WATER HEATER Chose this product in part due to compactness of unit, as I had a very tight space in which to install it. Seems to function according to manufacturer's claims. May 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tankless Electric Water Heater too difficult to install, the space is too small and requires a lot of work in order to do the correct installation May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product excellent product, will recommend it and also good price. September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great replacement for a small conventional elec. water heater. I bought this product as a replacement to a water heater that recently quit. It's very small, the size of a lg shoe box. Its worked very well so far as a whole house heater as I'm only using one faucet at a time with hi-efficient faucets and shower heads. It seems I'm saving on electricity with it operating only when in use even though I used a timer along with the thermostat on the old heater, I won't really know until after the winter months. For the price it has more than offset whatever savings I might see in the bill. i was also pleased to see it is made in Germany and not from China. December 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great purchase water gets very hot. It was very easy to install and working well January 13, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by it is inconsisitent the temperature or heated or cooled more of no more stays at average temperature, not recommended January 14, 2014
