Steibel Eltron Electric Tankless Water Heaters

Tempra ImageTempra Plus 24KW

By Stiebel Eltron

Stiebel Eltron tankless water heaters are the electric tankless water heaters that we recommend. We have had great success with these units and our customers have been very satisfied with them.

Stiebel Eltron has many models that can accommodate your needs. The whole house units may require some electrical upgrades to your home to operate them. We are more than happy to talk and see what may need to be done to install the units.  The units are can be mounted almost anywhere. The unit is small enough to fit under a large cabinet if needed.

The plus series come with a digital readout that lets you know the exact temperature of the water dispensed from the unit. The Tempra plus 24k puts out a capacity of 3 gallons per minute.   This number does not rate your water flow but shows how much volume of water that the heater will keep the temperature at. An example of this is running a shower and lavatory faucet. The shower will use 1.8 gallons per minute and the lavatory may use 1 gallon per minute.  The combination is a total of 2.8 gallons per minute. The unit will be efficient to running both the fixtures at the same time and keep the constant heat that the unit is set to. These numbers are for example only and can range depending on ratings of the fixtures.

This unit is a demand type. Stiebel does offer instantaneous also. We are not a dealer for this company. You can find their products at http://www.stiebel-eltron-usa.com/.

Energy.gov has a good explanation in their article Tankless or Demand-Type Water Heaters   article.

Winter Plumbing Tips

 fresnowflake

There are many plumbing tips for the winter season. We would like to pass on some of these tips to our customers and viewers. These tips can help save you money, time and headache for the future months to come.

With temperatures getting to near or at freezing many problems can occur:

  • It is a great idea to disconnect all water hoses outside. When the water freezes it can build back into the home causing pipe breakage.

  • If water lines are exposed it is necessary to insult them to protect them from the exterior conditions. You can also buy small insulator cups that cover hose bibs.

  • Closing vents around the foundation of the house will help keep the cold air from penetrating under the house which could freeze the water lines.

  • A first sign of pipes freezing or breaking is low water pressure. Keep an eye on how hard the water comes from faucets and valves. If you feel that your water lines are not insulated enough or want to be on the safe side you can leave faucets to slightly run to keep the water lines from freezing. If this is your position then a stream no wider then a pencil lead width will suffice.

  •  If leaving or not using certain rooms in home where water lines are located please be sure that the temperature is around 55 degrees.

 

These are some tips to help make these months easier on your pocket and plumbing. If you notice leaking or wish for your pipes to be inspected please feel free to contact us. We are here to help prevent problems with your plumbing.
