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. Tempra whole house tankless electric water heaters never waste energy storing hot water, but deliver it as needed, as long as needed. The compact design needs no venting, allowing for installation close to draw off points, making the wait for hot water as short as possible and maximizing 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 models 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 for a shower. Tempra Plus models incorporate Advanced Flow Control to automatically reduce flow rates to deliver water at the set point if demand exceeds capacity. Regular Tempra models lack this feature and should be considered if this is not of concern. Tempra 36 models provide hot water for 3 or 4 bathrooms in warm climates or 3 bathrooms in cool climates, and with a power draw of 150 amps, necessitate 300 amp minimum total service to the house.

  • Professional installation recommended
  • Tempra 36 models require 208 or 240 volt electric service, with a maximum draw of 27,000 watts at 208 volts or 36,000 watts at 240 volts
  • A minimum of 300 amp total service to the residence is necessary, as the Tempra 36 has a power draw of 150 amps via 3 separate 60 amp breakers with 6 gauge copper wiring
  • Tempra tankless electric water heaters are 99 percent efficient and typically result in savings of 15-20 percent in comparison with electric tank-type water heaters
  • Tempras use only the amount of energy necessary to heat the water needed
  • 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
  • Water connections for Tempra water heaters must be detachable (such as braided steel flex connectors) to allow periodic filter cleaning, including flushing for scale if hard water is present
  • Tempra tankless water heaters are ETL Listed for compliance with CSA and UL safety standards in the US and Canada
  • Tempra tankless electric water heaters are exempt from seismic code
  • Overheat safety protection and thermal protection reset is standard
  • See warranty for complete details of the 3-year residential and commercial warranty against defects in workmanship and materials under normal use
