Ariston GL6 Plus Thermostat Retrofit Kit

Bosch Thermotechnology has recently stopped manufacturing the thermostat #65150322 (prior part #994102) for the older Bosch Ariston GL6+ electric mini-tank water heater.

Bosch has just released a Bosch Ariston GL6+ Thermostat Retrofit Kit #7738006447 that comes with new plastic face pieces, heating element, anode rod, gasket and bolts and thermostat that will turn the older GL6 Plus into a new Bosch Tronic 3000T ES8.

The Bosch Ariston GL6 Plus Thermostat Replacement Kit can be used whenever there is an older Ariston GL6+ that needs a replacement thermostat.

The Bosch Ariston GL6 Plus Thermostat Retrofit Kit #7738006447 is less expensive than replacing the entire water heater with a new Bosch Tronic 3000T ES8.

Please call GlobalTowne at 888-726-9752 for further questions or to place an order.

Ariston GL2.5 - GL4 Thermostat Retrofit Kit

Bosch Thermotechnology has recently stopped manufacturing the thermostat #65105602 (prior part #994062) for the older Bosch Ariston GL2.5 and the GL4 electric mini-tank water heaters.

Bosch has just released a Bosch Ariston GL2.5/GL4 Thermostat Retrofit Kit #7738006446 that comes with new plastic face pieces, heating element, anode rod, gasket and bolts and thermostat that will turn the older GL2.5 or GL4 into a new Bosch Tronic 3000T ES2.5 or Bosch Tronic 3000T ES4, respectively.

Bosch Ariston GL2.5/GL4 Thermostat Retrofit Kit #7738006446

The Bosch Ariston GL2.5/GL4 Thermostat Retrofit Kit can be used whenever there is an older Ariston GL2.5 or GL4 that needs a replacement thermostat.

Some Ariston GL2.5 and GL4 users are unable to simply replace their older electric mini-tank water heaters with the newer Bosch Tronic 3000T ES2.5 and ES4 units due to the slightly larger depth of the newer water heaters. The Bosch Tronic 3000T ES2.5 is .5" deeper than the older Ariston GL2.5 and the Bosch Tronic 3000T ES4 is 1.25" deeper than the older Ariston GL4.

Also, the Bosch Ariston GL2.5/GL4 Thermostat Retrofit Kit #7738006446 is less expensive than replacing the entire water heater.

The Bosch Ariston GL2.5/GL4 Thermostat Retrofit Kit cannot be used for the older Ariston P10S/P15S mini tank heaters.  Customer with these older model heaters will have to purchase a new Bosch Tronic 3000T ES2.5 or ES4.

Please call GlobalTowne at 888-726-9752 for further questions or to place an order.

Maximum Inlet/Outlet Temperatures for Stiebel Eltron Tempra Plus Electric Tankless

Stiebel Eltron manufactures a variety of whole house electric tankless water heaters.  The Tempra B and Tempra Plus units are designed to supply hot water for a house, apartment or certain commercial applications. Unlike a conventional storage type water heater the Tempra tankless water heater does not store hot water. Instead, water is heated instantaneously as it flows through the unit. The Tempra offers greater energy efficiency than storage type water heaters due to the absence of stand-by losses and reduced hot water pipe runs.

The Stiebel Eltron Tempra B and Tempra Plus units can accept pre-heated inlet water up to 131 degrees and have a maximum output temperature of 140 degrees F.  The Tempra units have a built in sensor that detects the incoming and outgoing temperatures and adjusts itself electronically.  The Tempra Plus units also have a setting inside the unit and the maximum water temperature can be locked in up to 109 degrees in some situations for safety purposes.

The Stiebel Eltron models are the:
Tempra 12  Plus
Tempra 15  Plus
Tempra 20  Plus
Tempra 24  Plus
Tempra 29  Plus
Tempra 36  Plus

Please call GlobalTowne at 888-726-9752 for further questions or to see about ordering a Stiebel Eltron unit.
