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-E 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. The DHC-E is considerably smaller than a tank, saving space and allowing flexibility to determine the best location for installation. No venting is necessary, and the sleek European design even allows for installation with the unit visible. DHC-E 8/10 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-E 8/10 models are electronically controlled and can be set to deliver water at the temperature you need. The number of sinks a DHC-E can deliver hot water to depends on the temperature of the incoming cold water, the water flow through the unit, whether supply voltage is 208 or 240, and which power output the unit is set to. Refer to the DHC-E 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.

  • Professional installation recommended
  • DHC-E 8/10 tankless electric water heaters provide hot water for multiple low- or medium-flow sinks
  • DHC-E 8/10 models are set to 7.2 kW or 9.6 kW at installation via a jumper
  • DHC-E 8/10 models require 208 or 240 volt electric service, 1 dedicated 40 amp breaker at the 7.2 kW setting or 50 amp breaker at the 9.6 kW setting, and 8 gauge copper wiring
  • DHC-E 8/10 units installed at 9.6 kW will give these flow rates: 1.87 gpm @ 35 degrees F, 1.46 gpm @ 45 deg. F, 0.85 gpm @ 77 deg. F; and 1.41 gpm @ 35 deg. F, 1.09 gpm @ 45 deg. F, 0.64 gpm @ 77 deg. F if installed at 7.2 kW
  • DHC-E water heaters can be set on the front panel to supply water at the exact temperature desired from hand-washing temps of 86 degrees to as high as 140 degrees F if required by health codes
  • DHC-E models can be set to limit output water temperature to 109 degrees F
  • Installation should be as close to draw off points as possible to make the wait for hot water as short as possible and maximize energy savings
  • DHC-E tankless electric water heaters do not need pressure relief valves, drains, or circulating pumps
  • DHC-E tankless water heaters are ETL Listed for compliance with CSA and UL safety standards in the US and Canada
  • DHC-E tankless electric water heaters are exempt from seismic code, water fittings are 1/2 in. NPT and should be installed pointing down and connected to detachable plumbing (such as braided steel flex connectors or isolation valves) to allow for easy servicing
  • 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

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product, works as advertised Great solution to having the kitchen sink very far from the water heater. Instant hot water but then it shuts off when the hot water finally gets to the sink. Installation is straight forward. Wiring is challenging through the strain relief, needs to be wider to handle the recommended wire size. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does everthing we wanted We always had to run a lot of water to get hot water in the kitchen, for the water heater is at the other end of the house. We're using this unit as a supplement to warm the cold water in the pipe until the hot water from the main unit arrives. Now, we get hot water in a matter of seconds after running perhaps a cup of water. It is absolutely wonderful. Instructions were a little confusing, but installation only took a couple of hours, including running a new circuit to under the sink. The hardest part was laying under the sink to install. We would recommend this unit to anyone. January 8, 2014
