This German-engineered water heater is one of the best electric models out there for larger families, houses, condos, and even smaller commercial areas. It’s designed to work great in both warmer and colder climates.

Here’s why we love it…

First, it’s a total powerhouse. In fact, it slightly improves over the Rinnai RL75iN from above. With a powerful capacity to put out up to 8 GPM of water, this water heater can easily provide hot water to four showers at the same time.

Aside from a high flow-rate, it’s self-ventilating and comes in a compact size designed to save space. This means you can pretty much fit this water heater anywhere in your house without taking away from the aesthetics of your house.

Another great thing about this incredibly powerful model is it comes with self-modulating technology, which adjusts the power output according to any changes or fluctuations in the incoming water temperature.

We know everyone loves to save on their electric bills and the Stiebel Eltron Tempra Plus makes it possible. We discovered it has a super high energy efficiency of 99.5%, so you are sure to save on your energy expenses. This is great if you want to invest in a heavy-duty water heater for your house, but don’t want to increase your energy costs in the long run.

This Tempra Plus model also features an interesting Advanced Flow Control technology. This little perk lets the heater adjust its flow-rate to keep the output temperature the same as you set it. This means no matter how many water outlets you use, the water temperature will stay the same. This water heater will simply adjust the flow-rate accordingly.

The handy digital temperature display on this product is also a great feature to have. You can adjust the water temperature to any desired level between 86 and 140F.

This German product also comes with a thermostatic temperature control feature, which regulates the temperature to prevent any fluctuations during your usage. This basically means you’ll never have to worry about streams of cold water in between your hot showers anymore. That certainly one of the reasons we ranked this model so high.

Some things to be aware of…

Now, we aren’t saying this tankless water heater isn’t great. But like every other product out there, it comes with a few potential drawbacks you should at least be aware of before you start spending.

This water heater isn’t cheap. But, considering its massive capacity, the price seems fair to us. Plus, it saves your electricity costs in the long run, which really makes it a cost-effective option. However, getting it installed by a professional might increase your costs significantly. You might be tempted to try a DIY install, but that would just waste this product’s warranty.

Speaking of warranties, this Tempra Plus model comes with a 3-year warranty, but only on its parts. This is a little unfortunate because some users have reported their heater broke down after several months and the warranty didn’t apply to the whole unit.

The point is, be careful before you make your purchase decision. Nevertheless, this heater mostly has great customer feedback and is designed to work perfectly in colder areas, as well as in warmer climates. If you want to invest in an efficient electric heater suitable for a large residence, this is a solid option.
