Description & Documents
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 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. Tempra tankless electric water heaters are 99% efficient and use only the amount of energy necessary to heat the water needed. They typically result in savings of 15-20% in comparison with electric tank-type water heaters. 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 water heaters supply water at a constant temperature from 86 to 140 degrees F that is adjustable 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 tankless water heaters are sized based on the number of bathrooms and your climate. Refer to the Tempra Sizing Guide under 'Technical Specifications' to determine which model you need. Call Stiebel Eltron at 800.582.8423 if you have high flow showers, or any sizing questions. Tempra 29 models have a power draw of 120 amps and you should check the size of the electrical service to the house before considering this model.
