Do you have to wait for what seems like forever to get hot water in your kitchen or bathroom? Installing a hot water recirculation pump will give you instantaneous hot water when you turn your faucet, tub or shower valve on. Many people use recirculation pumps along with their tankless water heaters to have on demand, endless hot water.
The average home can waste as much as 12,000 gallons of water a year waiting for the hot water to get to their fixture not to mention the extra utility costs to heat that water. Call on the experts at Bonney to install you new hot water recirculation pump!
There are two types of hot water recirculation pump systems available for your home, a complete hot water recirculation system and a retrofit system. The complete hot water recirculation system has a dedicated hot water line that runs from your water heater to each fixture then back to a pump at the water heater creating a loop. This is a true hot water recirculation system and the most energy efficient.
The retrofit system has a pump connected to the hot water outlet side of the water heater and a crossover valve installed at the furthest fixture, sometimes two depending upon the layout of your home. This allows hot water to be pumped into the cold water system which is called stacking. Though not as efficient as the first system it is a less expensive installation and gives you similar results.
