SEE ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS BELOW
Electrical Requirements for Stiebel Eltron Tempra Series Tankless Water Heaters:
Before purchasing a Stiebel Eltron, or any other electric tankless water heater, please ensure that your home has sufficient electrical capacity for your desired model, or that you have taken note of any upgrades that may be required.
Please see the following chart for electrical requirements:
* Breaker size and wire gauge must meet all applicable local, state, provincial, and national electrical codes for your area - these are only guidelines that will apply to most installations. Some codes require use of electrical sub-panel for installation, especially when heater is not mounted within line-of-sight of the main electrical panel. Wiring should be sized to maintain a voltage drop of less than 3% under load. Please consult your electrician for more details.
The above specifications are only guidelines. If your home is already equipped with a large number of electrical appliances, you may require a larger electrical service than the one recommended above. Please consult an electrician before placing an order.
