Sure can, just be sure to sit it in a pan and pipe the pan to a suitable drain, you'll also need an electrical disconnect under the stairs for the heater.

The TPRV must be piped to a safe VISIBLE point which must be capable of 'taking' a potential full 'pop' opening of said valve.

Check with your local inspector.
