What Is a Hot Water Circulator?
Depending on the configuration and size of your home, your hot water may have a long journey from the water heater to the tap. A hot water circulator is engineered to deliver hot water almost instantly, using one of two types of recirculating pumps that are installed on the hot water tank:
Full Recirculating Pump System
Adjustments are made to your existing plumbing to add a dedicated hot water pipe. By creating a loop from the water heater to the faucet and back, hot water is delivered quickly and easily, and any unused water is returned back to the tank. Most are outfitted with sensors that automatically turn off the pump once the leftover hot water is returned and timers that let you control when the pump is active to conserve energy during times you are asleep, at work, or on vacation.
Recirculating Pump Comfort System
This less expensive alternative utilizes the existing plumbing to return the unused hot water back to the hot water tank. The minor drawback with this type of system is that you may find yourself waiting for cold water, as both hot and cold share the same pipe, and it may initially be lukewarm.
Benefits of a Hot Water Recirculating Pump
A hot water recirculation system that is professionally designed and installed will provide you with years of reliable service, delivering consistent hot water with even temperatures to each faucet in your home. Benefits of this technology include:
- No waiting. It can be both frustrating and wasteful to stand at the sink or in the shower waiting for hot water to pour from the tap or showerhead. With a hot water recirculation system, you get instant results with no lag time.
- Save water. There are a number of ways to conserve water and energy in your home, including installing low-flow toilets and showerheads, using the energy-saving setting on appliances, and ensuring plumbing leaks are addressed quickly. A hot water recirculation pump can also bring big savings of upwards of 10,000 gallons of water annually, by eliminating wasted cold water down the drain while waiting for the hot water to arrive.
- Flexible control. A timer allows you to control the use of the pump according to your family’s schedule for further savings throughout the year.
