I don’t know about you, but a cold blast of water in the middle of your relaxing, hot morning shower is not the wake-up call you expect – or deserve. And to everyone else in the house who bathes after the hot water is used up? I find it’s best to wish them good luck before heading out the door.
Well, all of that changed with the Stiebel Eltron Tempra 24 Plus Electric Tankless Whole House Water Heater. Stiebel has been an industry leader in designing water heaters since they opened 90 years ago, and this unit is no exception. It’s not only revolutionizing the idea of a tankless whole house water heater but is also making waves in my house.
It was designed to work equally well in residential, industrial or commercial settings, and is ideal for one- or two-bathroom homes located throughout the country. The unit can handle both warm southern climates and cool northern climates.
Below we will explore few features about Stiebel Eltron Tempra 24 Plus Water Heater that will guide you.
Tempra Advanced Flow Control
This feature is only available on the Tempra Plus models and helps to guarantee hot water in all deliveries. Say, for example, two people are bathing, and one is trying to rinse dishes. This increased use can make the demand for hot water larger than the capacity of a unit with a tank. In these traditional tank water heaters, all three people would end up with a full flow of cold water. The Tempra Advanced Flow Control will regulate the flow of water, slightly reducing the output to ensure that everyone has water at the temperature they set.
Endless Hot Water
With the Tempra 24 Plus Tankless Electric Water Heater, we were overjoyed to find that we have an unlimited supply of hot water. Rather than models that hold water in tanks, this unit pulls the water in as it is needed, heating the water with high-powered burners that warm the water through a heat exchanger. Models with tanks heat the water up and hold it until you need to use it, but once it runs out, you have to wait for more water to heat up.
Save Time, Space and Money
An electric tank water heater is consistently utilizing electricity to heat and maintain a full water tank. The Tempra Tankless Water Heaters only heat as needed, offering consumers a 15 to 20 percent savings on their electric bill. You’ll also be amazed at how much more space you have when you replace your tank water heater. This sleek German design is 14.5 inches high by 16.625 inches wide and only 4.625 inches deep and was engineered for residential, commercial and industrial use.
Quiet, Safe-for-the-Family Machine
Tempra tankless water heaters have no mechanical switches, meaning the machines are completely silent during operation. The Tempra Plus units also have controls that can set the hot water temperature at 109 degrees -preventing the changes of scalding. Without controls, the unit can heat water to at least 82 degrees hotter than your ambient water temperature.
Overall, this is an incredibly powerful little unit.
Sleek, modern engineering: The Tempra units utilize German technology, quality, and efficiency to bring you the best option for your home.
Responsive customer service: The unit comes with a seven-year warranty against leakage and a three-year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials.
The Tempra 24 Plus Tankless Electric Water Heater has only a few minor drawbacks.
Water supply: Municipal water processed by reverse osmosis, and other acidic water supplies, can corrode copper and brass alloys – used in tankless water heaters. Additionally, some hard waters can cause clogs.
Installation: The Tempra 24 Plus units draw 100 A (amps) and require a minimum 200 A electric service. You’ll want to make sure your electrical unit and wiring is compatible with the water heater.
