Stiebel Eltron has been designing solar thermal systems for 40 years. Because each solar installation is different, the company’s solar water heaters are available with a full line of kits, hardware and components.
The company also offers two tanks, the SBB and SB-E, which are designed to be used as part of a solar or geothermal system, as well as any hydronic applications.
Stiebel Eltron offers warranties of 7-year parts and workmanship on tankless water heaters and 10-year parts and workmanship on heat pump water heaters. Coverage on solar equipment ranges from 10 years to a lifetime warranty.
