The number one plus of a hot water recirculation system? Convenience! With these appliances, you have hot water on-demand when and where you need it. Hot water recirculation systems always keep hot water waiting and ready, so you don’t have to stand by while cool water is being heated. There’s always hot water in the tank so when you turn on the tap, the hot water is immediately available for you to use and enjoy.

Because you’ve always got hot water on call, you won’t stand around wasting water while your supply “heats up.” Over time, this can save you hundreds of gallons of water and hundreds of dollars, too. Consider all the time you spend with the shower on, waiting for it to get hot before you get in. Think about the tub faucet running full blast before you plug the drain, and the kitchen faucet sending water directly down the pipes when you’re waiting on warm water for dishes. Waste less water with a hot water recirculation system.

In many homes, hot water recirculation devices can be installed in tandem with the hot water tank you already have. If you’re considering a new tank system, now is also a great time to think about the way the parts work together. There are several options when it comes to recirculation systems; your structure is probably best suited to one kind or another, so it’s smart to talk to a professional plumber about the right model for you. The most common types of hot water recirculation systems include passive systems, pump-based systems, and timer-managed systems.
