PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # Tempra 12 Plus

Internet # 203210868

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. Our Tempra models are whole house tankless electric water heaters, never wasting energy storing hot water, but delivering it as you need it, for as long as you need it. The compact design needs no venting, allowing installation close to your draw off points, making your wait for hot water as short as possible and maximizing your energy savings. Tempra tankless water heaters are sized based on the number of bathrooms and your climate. Refer to the Tempra Sizing Guide under 'More Views' to determine which model you need. Call Stiebel Eltron at 800.582.8423 if you have high flow showers, or any sizing questions. Tempra water heaters supply water at a constant temperature from 86 to 140 degrees F that is settable on the front panel. We recommend setting the actual highest temperature you use, typically 107 degrees F for a shower. Tempra Plus models incorporate an Advanced Flow Control that automatically reduces flow to deliver water at the set point if demand exceeds capacity. Regular Tempra models do not have this feature and should be considered if this is not of concern. Tempra 12 models provide hot water for 1 bathroom in warm climates. See the Tempra Sizing Chart for help.

  • Tempra 12 models require 208 or 240 volt electric service, with a maximum draw of 9,000 watts at 208 volts or 12,000 watts at 240 volts
  • A minimum of 100 amp total service to the residence is necessary, with 1 separate 60 amp breaker and 6 gauge copper wiring for the Tempra 12
  • Tempra tankless electric water heaters are 99% efficient and typically result in savings of 15-20% in comparison with electric tank-type water heaters
  • Tempras use only the amount of energy necessary to heat the water needed
  • The sleek European design is considerably smaller than a tank, saving space and allowing flexibility to determine the best location for installation
  • Tempra units must be installed vertically with the water fittings pointing down
  • Tempra tankless water heaters work better than tank-type water heaters in hard water environments because they can be set to lower temperatures, which minimizes scale formation

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Eltron Tempra 12 review I purchased this product online from homedepot.ca. While the savings in space and electricity are an advantage unfortunately the tank less water heater reduces the water pressure drastically to heat it up. I am not sure if this is just a "Eltron Tempra 12 plus" problem or if this is something that happens with all tankless water heaters. If I cant figure this out I might have to go back to a regular water heater. The pressure gets so low that showering takes forever . I will be contacting the company to arrange for return or exchange. November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am very happy with the product, now I have so much room in the garage I am so glad I got ready of the old huge tank I had , I am very happy with the tankless heater, I have no problems with the hot water. My house is a 5 BR and 4 baths, and I always have hot water. June 25, 2013
