Stiebel Tempra 24 Electric Tankless Hot Water Heater Installation

Jan 10, 2012

We  installed a stiebel 24 electric hot water heater  in 2008 during a client’s bathroom remodel. It was relatively easy to install, but required 6/3 wire run in a pair. The left side of the unit requires a ground but the right side does not. 50 feet of this wire cost over $120. The client also purchased a high end control valve to cut the water off and on at the unit. These units are the size of a briefcase and cost around $700 on the street. The key to remember is the breaker box most have room and at least 200 Amps of power. This unit pulls 100 Amps at some points to heat water quickly.

I have found that the unit worked quite well. We have had to reset the unit once. The reset is located on the top of the large canisters and is easy to get at with the case off.
Of course one of the nice things about these units is that you don’t have to vent them out. They can be placed in a small space, also.
