Stiebel Eltron

Save energy and water with a compact storage water heater

Made in Germany, the Stiebel Eltron SNU 5 and SNU 10 water heaters deliver hot water quickly. These water heaters eliminate long runs of pipework for isolated sinks and reduce the waiting time for hot water to the outlet. They are conveniently installed directly underneath the sink and must be fitted with specialised open vented tapware.

How does it work? 

The SNU hot water system incorporates a highly-efficient insulation system, which provides thermal insulation and minimal energy losses. The thermal cut-out provides a permanently safe maximum water temperature. In addition, the SNU has a Thermo-Stop function that helps to save energy and prevents the mixer tap from being heated in stand-by mode. These features, coupled with a range of tapware specifically designed to complement the brilliant SNU point of use heaters, ensure that we have the ideal solution for your kitchen, tea preparation or BBQ area.
