      DHC-E 12

      DHC-E 12 models are ideal for residential or commercial point-of-use sink applications including: bathrooms, offices, stores, malls, warehouses, restaurants, and gas stations. They may also work for single low-flow shower use under some conditions, and can be easily removed for over-wintering a seasonal cabin or cottage. They are electronically controlled and can be set to deliver water at the temperature you need. They heat water instantaneously and endlessly at 99% efficiency as it flows through the unit. Because they do not store hot water like tank water heaters, they have no stand-by energy losses. Venting is not necessary and the compact European design can be installed with the unit visible. A DHC-E is considerably smaller than a tank, saving space and allowing flexibility to determine the best location for installation. The number of sinks a DHC-E can supply depends on the temperature of the incoming cold water, the water rate through the unit, and the supply voltage. Refer to the DHC-E Sizing Guide to determine model suitability, especially for whole house use. Call Stiebel Eltron at 800.582.8423 with any sizing questions. Stiebel Eltron invented tankless electric water heating technology more than 90 years ago, and is still the industry pioneer and world leader today, with an engineering and manufacturing tradition of excellence.

      I bought this unit and installed in our small church. We use it to heat water for two restroom hand wash lavs and one kitchen sink. The unit is able to supply all three outlets with ample hot water simultaneously. Installation was easy and straight forward. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone with the need to heat water for a few low flow water outlets.
