Electric Tankless Water Heater for 1/2 Bath Home


  • Unlimited Supply of Hot Water: Keeps heating water instantly as you require. The Tempra(tm) system completely replaces a conventional tank heater with no disruption to your comfort and hot water needs.
  • Saves Energy and Reduces Your Electric Bill: Electric tank type water heaters are subject to stand-by losses which amount to 15 - 20% of the kWH used. Changing to a tankless system results in savings of 15 - 20%.
  • Control Temperature Simply by Setting a Dial: Set the knob on the front cover and enjoy water temperatures between 86 degreeF (30 degreeC) and 125 degreeF (52 degreeC). Change the desired temperature at anytime. Advanced microprocessor technology ensures that the water temperature never deviates from the set point.
  • Sleek Design Saves Space: The Tempra(tm) takes up considerably less space than conventional tank type water tanks and saves valuable living space.
  • Proven Reliability: Stiebel Eltron has an enviable track record of engineering excellence and product quality. The three years parts warranty is unique in the industry. You can depend on the Tempra(tm) for many years to come.
  • Tempra 12 vs. Tempra 12 Plus: The Tempra 12 Plus expands on the Tempra 12 (this model) by adding a pressure balancing feature to the unit. Should a unit be hooked up to more than one application, for example, a shower and a kitchen faucet, the demand for hot water may occasionally exceed the capabilities of the tankless water heater. Should this occur when using the Tempra 12, the water temperature will go down. Should this occur when using the Tempra 12 Plus, the unit will properly lower the cold water pressure to compensate for the demand, resulting in a total drop in water pressure at the shower and kitchen sink faucet, but temperature remains constant.

5 Questions from the Community

  • I have a 100 amp service; does the water heater get connected to one of the breakers within the breaker box?

    A. The Stiebel Eltron TEMPRA 12 draws 50 amps at full load and needs two double pole 60 amp breakers. It does connect directly to the breaker panel.

  • Will this provide hot water for the entire house or is this only good for one installation per fixture (ie bath or sink)?
