Conserve Water, Save Time, and Money with Hot Water Recirculating Systems
Wasting Water and Time? There’s a Solution!
Are you tired of waiting for hot water to reach your faucets, only to watch gallons of precious water go down the drain? Not only is this wasteful, but it also costs you valuable time and money. Luckily, there’s a solution that can save you from these frustrations while also preserving our planet’s most valuable resource—fresh drinking water. Installing a hot water recirculating system in your home can provide instant hot water at every fixture, helping you save time, money, and water.
The Inefficiency of Waiting
In most Atlanta homes, the water heater is located in the basement or garage, far away from the fixtures on the upper floors. As a result, waiting for hot water to reach these distant fixtures can take up to 5 minutes or even longer, wasting up to 15 gallons of water in the process. However, by installing a hot water recirculating system, a family of four can save over 36,000 gallons of water each year.
How Does a Hot Water Recirculating System Work?
A hot water recirculating system consists of a pump and valve combination that ensures instant hot water delivery to every faucet and bath in your home. This setup creates a pressure differential that allows the cold and cool water in the hot water supply line to bypass into the cold water supply line through a thermostatically controlled sensor valve. As a result, the water in the hot water supply line remains at the desired temperature throughout your home, eliminating the wait time.
Exploring Pump Options
There are different types of hot water recirculating pumps available, each offering unique features and benefits:
- Basic “Always-On” Pump: This pump operates continuously, consuming energy equivalent to a 40-watt light bulb.
- Timer-Controlled Pump: With this option, you can set specific times for the system to operate, maximizing efficiency during peak usage periods.
- Temperature-Sensing Pump: This pump automatically shuts off when it detects that the water at the farthest faucet from the water heater has reached the desired temperature, typically within 10-15 seconds.
- Tankless Water Heater Pump: Specifically designed for tankless water heaters, this pump ensures efficient hot water circulation in homes with these systems.
