Stiebel Eltron Tempra 12 (12 KW) electric tankless water heater is a popular and very economically priced thermostatically-controlled point-of-use tankless water heater used for low flow applications such as single sinks in restrooms, powder rooms, kitchens, low-flow pool house showers, emergency eyewash stations, etc. This model is not generally considered sufficient for whole house applications, even in warm climate areas.

Like all Tempra Series tankless water heaters, the Tempra 12 (12B) features true microprocessor-controlled temperature regulation and dial selector which allows you to set the desired output water temperature at any level between 86 and 140F (30 and 60C).

It is one of the only tankless water heaters on the market that features a true thermostatic temperature control and full power-modulation based on both the incoming water temperature and the water flow rate.

The Tempra 12 (12B) will automatically adjust its power output to accommodate changes in the incoming water temperature and flow rate so it can precisely maintain the desired output temperature. The result is the most precise temperature control of any tankless water heater on the market today!

Maximum Flow Rate in Gallons Per Minute at 105F Output temp
Incoming Water Temp: Flow Rate (GPM)
40F 1.3 GPM
45F 1.4 GPM
50F 1.5 GPM
55F 1.6 GPM
60F 1.8 GPM
65F 2.0 GPM
70F 2.3 GPM
75F 2.7 GPM

Do You Have Hard Water?
If your water hardness exceeds 7 grains per gallon (GPG) or 120 mg/l (ppm), you should consider hard water treatment prior to your tankless water heater. If your hardness exceeds 12 GPG or 200 mg/l (ppm), hard water treatment is strongly recommended.

Hard water treatment helps maintain performance and efficiency, ensures optimal water flow and pressure, and protects your heater from pre-mature failure due to mineral build-up inside the heating module and other components.
