Washing your hands, washing dishes, taking a shower. When we turn on the faucet we get water. But that’s only half the battle. The water needs to be warm. Waiting a second or two is ok, but having to wait 30 seconds or a minute for it to heat up can be frustrating. This is a water circulation issue.
But why does it take so long? It has to do with water leftover in the pipes the last time you turned the water off. It’s been sitting in the pipes getting cold. It needs to flush out before you get the new hot water from the water heater.
Not only is this annoying, but it also costs money and wastes water. Thankfully, there’s a solution – Noritz Tankless Water Heaters.
The secret to prime water circulation is recirculation. All that water that’s left behind in your pipes can actually be reheated. That way, the water is warm the instant you turn it on. A Noritz tankless water heater accomplishes this via a closed-loop, pump-assisted recirculation system.
Water from the pipes is pumped back through the heater. To maintain efficiency it only operates when standing water is detected. Some systems even allow you to set a timer so the pump activates when you know you’ll need hot water (like in the morning before you shower).
Recirculation pumps operate on a dedicated loop. This is an add-on to your pipe system that can add warm water to an individual faucet, bypassing water in the pipe that has already cooled. This can be used in conjunction with the more traditional recirculation methods listed above.
