    • Description
      SHC 2.5

      Stiebel Eltron has been a world leader in advanced water heating technology for almost 90 years. Our engineering excellence and high-quality manufacturing results in products fulfilling the highest expectations of performance and reliability. Our SHC Mini-Tank Water Heaters are no exception. They excel at supplying hot water at a sink for hand washing or for kitchen applications. An SHC saves water and electricity by putting hot water right where it is needed rather than having a long pipe run from a central hot water tank. The smaller tank and good insulation reduces the stand-by losses compared with a larger tank water heater and the wait for hot water at the tap is reduced to a minimum. Why store 30 or more gallons of hot water if much less are sufficient for the job. An SHC can be installed in-line with a central tank to allow immediate hot water draws without waiting for a long pipe run to purge itself of cold water. It may also be used to buffer temperatures in a DHW recirculation loop. A lightweight and compact SHC mounts right under or near a sink with its included bracket. Once it is filled with water, it is easy to simply plug it into a 120 volt outlet as no special wiring is required. A T&P valve is supplied and should be installed.

      • SHC 2.5-gal. mini-tank water heaters provide 2.5 gal. of hot water for hand washing or kitchen applications
      • Installation right under or near the sink, as close to the draw off point as possible, will make the wait for hot water as short as possible and maximize energy savings
      • May be used in-line to provide hot water quickly at a fixture located a distance from a central storage tank
      • SHC 2.5 runs on 120 volts and connects to a standard receptacle with the supplied 3-prong plug
      • SHC 2.5 heating element is 1200 watts and draws 11 amps
      • SHC 2.5 mounts directly to a wall with its included bracket
      • Tank is glass-lined for long life
