Home Comfort System
Many home improvements that increase convenience and efficiency that were once considered optional, are now a norm for most homeowners, instantaneous hot water is one of them. Convenient heated water at all your fixtures is as easy as a quick pump installation by your plumber. All it takes is a small hot water recirculation pump at your water heater and valve under a bathroom sink to notice big differences in your daily routine and water usage.
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.
