The Stiebel Eltron DHC-E series tankless water heaters are the most technologically advanced point-of-use tankless water heaters available today. The DHC-E 8 features the industry-leading thermostatic temperature control as well as flow and temperature based power modulation technology found in Stiebel Eltron's flagship Tempra whole house heaters. Simply set your desired temperature between 86° (30°C), and 125° (52°C) using the digital display panel and enjoy water at the temperature you requested. Change your desired temperature at anytime with ease. Advanced microprocessor technology ensures that the water temperature never deviates from your desired temperature.

The DHC-E 8 is extremely energy efficient as it produces hot water on demand, only as it is required. A sophisticated water flow sensor recognizes when hot water is turned on and when it has been turned off, so the unit will activate and deactivate automatically. This ensures it will only run when you are actually requesting hot water. You can expect to see a significant cost reduction over the operating cost of a conventional water heater, as this eliminates standby thermal heat losses associated with traditional tank type water heaters.

The DHC-E 8 point-of-use tankless water heater is ideal for bathroom sinks, kitchens, commercial washrooms, and a wide range of other point of use applications. Due to its small size, the DHC-E 8 conveniently fits directly under the sink or adjacent cupboard or closet, so it delivers hot water to the sink almost instantly. By locating the heater right near the point-of-use, you can also eliminate thermal heat loss commonly associated with long pipe runs. If the DHC-E 8 can supply all of the hot water needs for the room, in new construction applications, you also eliminate the need to run a hot water line all the way from the main central water heater which can save you significant money in plumbing and material cost.

The Stiebel Eltron DHC-E 8 is not recommended for whole house use. For more information on whole house models, see our Stiebel Eltron Tempra Series Whole House Tankless Water Heaters.
