The Stiebel Eltron DHC-E series tankless water heaters are the most advanced point-of-use tankless water heaters on the market today. The DHC-E 8/10 and DHC-E 12 both feature the same industry-leading thermostatic temperature control and flow and temperature based power modulation technology found in Stiebel Eltron's flagship Tempra whole house heaters. Set the desired temperature and enjoy water temperatures between 86° (30°C), and 140° (60°C). Change the desired temperature at anytime. Advanced microprocessor technology ensures that the water temperature never deviates from the set point.

By producing hot water on demand only as it is being used, the DHC-E 12 is extremely energy efficient. A sophisticated water flow sensor recognizes when hot water is being used and when it has been turned off, so the unit will activate and deactivate automatically so it only runs when you are actually using water. This eliminates standby thermal heat losses associated with traditional tank type water heaters. Accordingly, you can expect to see a significant cost reduction over the operating cost of a conventional water heater.

True Thermostatic Temperature Control
and Flow-Based Power Modulation!

The DHC-E 12 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 Stiebel Eltron DHC-E 12 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 12 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 12 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.
