The problem: Waiting for hot water! Do you have to wait 30 seconds or more for hot water to arrive at your shower or faucets? If you do, a Hot Water Recirculating System can bring you convenience and savings, giving you hot water instantly at every faucet or shower when you need it.
Energy down the drain! The average family of four wastes up to 17,000 gallons of water each year just waiting for hot water to arrive. A hot water re-circulation system system eliminates waste and provides the luxury and convenience of instant hot water. It pays for itself through reduced water and sewer charges and reduced water heating costs.
How it Works…
In a conventional system with a central water heater, any cold water standing in the pipes between the heater and the point-of-use is dumped down the drain as hot water travels from the heater. In a demand recirculating system, when the system is activated the pump starts recirculating cooled water that’s been sitting in the hot water line and sends it back to the water heater through the cold water line. When the water reaches a desired temperature a control turns off the pump. This process is similar to turning on the hot water faucet and letting the water run until it gets hot, but instead of the water going down the drain, it is simply returned back to the water heater—saving energy and water.
In an integrated loop system, hot water is re-circulated intermittently. Hot water is returned to the water heater through the cold water pipes. This process raises the temperature of the cold water slightly, but it returns to the usual cold temperature in a short time.
