How Does Hot Water Recirculation Work?

More and more homeowners are looking for ways in which to boost energy efficiency in their homes these days. Sure, upgrading your appliances and HVAC systems with more efficient models is one way to do it. There are other issues at hand, though, that cannot be resolved by simply replacing existing equipment. Integrating an innovative new system into your home can help.

That is why you may want to consider the installation of a hot water recirculation system in Sarasota, FL. Using such a system helps you to avoid water waste that you may not even realize is taking place, let alone the impact it has on your bills. Read on, and remember to schedule your plumbing services with our team. 

What’s the Problem?

Think about the last time you got into the shower. Did you stand under the showerhead and turn the water on? Probably not. Instead, you likely let the water run for a bit until it warmed up to a comfortable temperature. The perfectly fine water that just wasn’t warm enough for your liking got flushed down the drain.

With a water recirculation system, such as the Grundfos systems that we work with, you won’t have to wait for the water to warm up. Why not? Because the system will keep hot water circulating to all of your plumbing fixtures throughout the day, while using only a very small amount of electricity to do so.

How Does It Work?

The water recirculation pump pumps hot water from the water heater to the fixture furthest away from the source. This keeps hot water in the line all day long, so that you are not pouring cool water down the drain while waiting for it to heat up. One of the benefits of the Grundfos hot water recirculation system is that you don’t even need a dedicated recirculation line! The installation is a relatively simple job for a seasoned plumber like ours, taking only 1-2 hours.
