What Is a Recirculation System?

Installing a hot water recirculation system is an ideal way to guarantee hot water on demand in any plumbing fixture in your home. A hot water recirculation system uses a pump to rapidly move water through your plumbing system. Since you have instant access to hot water, the system helps you conserve water, and some systems can even help you save energy.

How Do Recirculation Systems Work?

A hot water recirculation system incorporates a pump, an electronic controller, and a zone valve. Systems may be configured with an on/off button or utilize a thermostat or timer to ensure continuous availability of hot water. If you set up the system through a thermostat or timer, the system will constantly push cool water back to the water heater and hot water to your fixtures, which is less energy efficient. So we recommend using a switch to operate the system, because it is as simple as pressing the button on to activate the pump. These systems save energy when left in the off position, typically overnight. 

What Are The Benefits Tankless Water Heaters?

A tankless water heater system is more cost-effective compared to a water heater that uses a tank. Some advantages of using a tankless water heater system include energy efficiency, endless hot water supply, low risk of flooding, and they save space.1st Home & Commercial Services can upgrade your water system to the latest energy-efficient technology. See our tankless water heater installation page for more information.
