Hubbell electric tankless water heaters have many advantages over tank-type heaters.

Hubbell tankless are space-saving units mounted on the wall or installed under the sink and cabinet wall so that the floor space can be used for something else.

Due to the small, compact, and lightweight design, they can be installed almost anywhere; closet, utility room, under the sink, crawl space, and thanks to its stainless steel exterior, also in the garage, attic, high traffic places, and locations with the wet conditions. These units are designed mainly for indoor use, but the appropriate enclosure can be installed outdoors.

Quality elements for reliable and long-term operation

Its high-powered heating elements heat water instantly and when you need it, providing the high 99% efficiency, resulting in great energy savings and significantly reduced operating costs.

Heating elements are coming with commercial quality, which ensures durability and reliability. Attached to the heating elements are safety thermostats that are equipped with the hi-limit switch for protection against overheating (for temperatures over 150 F).

Easy operation

Except for the endless and on-demand supply of hot water, Hubbell also comes with other great features such as the push-fit connection that eliminates the need for soldering the copper inlet and outlet pipes and electronic temperature controller. The LED digital display is part of the electronic temperature controller and is conveniently located at the front panel; it shows hot water temperature, while the push buttons allow temperature adjustment from 32 to 194 F.

Advanced electronics

All Hubbell electric tankless water heaters can modulate the power from 0 to 100% and use the energy needed for the set temperature. The advanced electronics include the microprocessor controller and sophisticated sensors for the precise flow rate and accurate water temperatures with reduced temperature fluctuation.

There are other benefits for Hubbell customers: the drain port that simplifies the drainage during the winter, options to track the consumed energy and water, check the operating costs, error codes, and allow thermal auto-reset protection.
