Product Overview

DHC tankless water heaters 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. They heat water instantaneously and endlessly at 99% efficiency as it flows through the unit. Because they do not store hot water like tank water heaters, they have no stand-by energy losses. Venting is not necessary and the compact European design can be installed with the unit visible. The hot water temperature delivered by a DHC depends on the incoming cold water temperature, the flow rate through the unit, and the size of the DHC model. They excel at supplying water at a constant temperature but the model must be carefully matched to the flow rate of the sink to operate properly. Refer to the DHC Sizing Guide to determine which model you need. Call Stiebel Eltron at 800.582.8423 with any questions. Stiebel Eltron invented tankless electric water heating technology more than 90 years ago, and is still the industry pioneer and world leader today, with an engineering and manufacturing tradition of excellence.

Customer Questions & Answers

Will the heater work with a single lever shower mixer?

I installed a DHC 8-2 water heater but I am not getting hot water from the faucet, what can you recommend to correct this problem?
Asked by: topaz1500
June? have you worked it out? the answer is yes. but you must remeber there need to be enough floe to trigger the flow switch. too slow and the geyser turns off

OK THE MIXER IS A CORBA BRAND i was told that the water heater is to only work on a sayco mixer with three handle or two handles mixer combition not a single handle mixer how is that possible
Asked by: corey
Yes. The moment you want more hot, it disturbs the balance and the cold slows down too much, you get burnt? one solution is to reduce the pressure altogether. fit a pressure reducer to the supply. This stops the high pressure limiting the mixers ability to flow smoothly. Secondly you can reduce/increase the geyser temp. this makes the mixer perform at diffrent settings and may offer more control. By adjusting both temp and pressure you will find a suitable state, even if that means you have to settle for a weaker shower flow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good performance It was a bit more difficult to install as I had to hardwire it and no knockout available. It heats water better than expected and quite adequate for the BBQ island it is used at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
