How Much Savings can be provided with the Energy Efficient Duca Circulation Pump?

Circulation pumps are not a new technology. It has been used in restaurants and high-end hotels for years. However, homeowners have begun to take advantage of this convenience and savings relatively in the recent times.

What is Circulation Pump?

Why Do I Need One of These?

Domestic hot water circulation pump is used for circulation of hot water. Therefore, any faucet or shower provides instant hot water on demand. These systems gradually pump the hot water back to the hot water pipes and water heater from a dedicated line or cold-water line.

Before mentioning the savings provided by the circulation pump, let's look at the issue from a broader perspective by mentioning its benefits:

-Ease of Installation: Circulation pumps are very easy to install. It does not require special permission or tool. There are many models specially designed for home installation systems.

-Excessive Product Range: Many manufacturers and options are available. (Contact us for energy efficient water circulation pump options.)

-Facility: When the faucet is turned on, hot water is almost instantly available. The convenience of having instant hot water is very attractive to homeowners.

-Easy to Use: Most circulation pumps are very easy to use. Once set, you rarely need to make any adjustments.

-Water Saving: The waste of water is less as the hot water is given almost instantly. This is even more important at the moments when there is insufficient water. The energy efficient water circulation pump saves substantial amounts of water each year.

Let's come to our main subject: How Much Does the Circulation Pump Save?

To explain this situation in a problem-oriented way; As it is known, houses consume a lot of water. According to researches conducted, the amount of water that an average house flows while waiting for hot water to be ready constitutes approximately 9% of the annual amount of water flowed. Nevertheless, the water circulation pump will be life-saving. In typical homes with one-way plumbing without a circulation pump, the hot water remaining in the pipes after the faucet is turned off cools until the next time the faucet is opened. By adding a circulator pump to the home system, you can ensure that cold water is circulated back to the heater through the cold water line and there is no water waste during waiting.

The Circulation Pump can optionally be functional in three different ways:

1) It is a circulation pump that uses a timer and thermostat to maintain hot water in the house in the morning and evening or when hot water is required. For example, the user demands hot water at 06:00 in the morning and 17:00 in the evening. Accordingly, the user sets the timer and the hot water is ready at the times determined.

2) It is a circulation pump in which the user manually activates the pump by pressing a button or remote sensor when necessary.

3) It is the activation of the circulation pump by motion sensors.

In all three activation methods, temperature sensors in the hot water line at the pump end let the pump know when the water is hot, thus automatically shutting down the pump and preventing hot water from being pumped into the cold-water lines.

The annual water consumption of an average family is approximately 350 m3. With the hot water circulation pump, you save around 460 m³ of water in 10 years. This is equivalent to approximately 10 swimming pools. Based on the savings, the benefits of the circulation pump should not be considered as purely financial value. Perhaps, the important issue for some is the convenience of accessing hot water without waiting after turning on the shower.

In this period that the drought has been increasing with each passing year, water saving is actually more than these benefits. With the satisfaction of saving water, saving time, increasing comfort and knowing that you are making a difference, the water circulation pump may cause you to ask the question of "Why don't I have one of these yet?".
