What is a Hot Water Recirculation Pump?
A recirculation pump is a device that we can connect to your water line to create a “loop” between your water heater and the fixtures that use hot water. This “loop” allows hot water to circulate back to your unit whenever someone opens a faucet or turns on a shower. As a result, you won’t have to wait as long for hot water.
The main types of recirculation pumps are:
- Full pump systems: Full pump systems require a dedicated return line back to the water heater, so they work best for new constructions. We can discuss the feasibility of retrofitting a return line into your existing home.
- Comfort pump systems: Comfort pump systems don’t require a dedicated return line, so we can outfit them in existing homes and offices. Their one drawback is that your fixtures will take longer to draw cold water.
