Do you find yourself standing in front of the sink or shower waiting for hot water? The average home wastes 31 gallons of water a day and minutes of precious time. We have a simple, effective, and very popular method to solve this resource and time-draining problem.
How Does It Work?
An addition of a hot water recirculation system keeps a continuous flow of hot water in your hot supply lines. Without this, hot water that has been sitting in your lines and has cooled down must be pushed out before the new hot water from your water heater can reach you. A home comfort pump installed at your water heater helps pull recycled water back to the water heater to be reheated and recirculated. In addition to this, a small valve is placed under the sink that is farthest from your water heater which regulates the flow from the hot line to the cold water line. This rules out any need for a separate return line to be plumbed in, saving you lots of money!
The pump is equipped with a timer, which can be set to run during peak water usage hours only. Energy usage is not of too much concern with this pump, using less energy than a 25-watt light bulb. The low-watt motor is also quiet, so it won't disturb you when it is in action.
DID YOU KNOW?
Some fast-growing countries are making installations of hot water recirculating systems mandatory for new construction homes.
