Hot Water Recirculation is one of the Top 10 Trends in Missoula Plumbing. If you haven’t read the article to see what the other 9 are, I encourage you to read it before continuing on. Unless, of course, you are super-excited about Hot Water Recirculation for your Missoula property, in which case … let’s jump right into it!
What is Hot Water Recirculation?
Hot water recirculation is closely related to tankless water heaters. Hot water recirculation systems keep hot water constantly circulating through the pipes in order to provide hot water instantly.
Without a hot water recirculation system, water that was hot cools in the pipes, meaning that more water must be pumped through them (and go down the drain) in order to get hot water.
Benefits of a Hot Water Recirculation for Missoula Residents
Hot Water Recirculation Ensures Instant Hot Water
Hot water recirculation systems keep a steady flow of hot water running through the pipes. This means you don’t have to wait for the shower to heat up before you climb in.
Hot Water Recirculation Saves Water
More importantly, hot water recirculation pumps save a significant amount of water from going down the drain since you don’t have to wait for the water to heat up. This, in turn, helps both the environment and the wallet.
Hot Water Recirculation Saves Conflict
If your home is anything like ours, there are constant battles in the morning as my teenager leaves the water running for (what seems to be) an eternity while the water heats up. Meanwhile, she goes back to her room and the hot water is just running down the drain until she decides it’s time to go back to the bathroom. This, of course, leads to yelling and conflict nearly every morning. The cost of a hot water recirculation system is miniscule compared to the peace it can restore to your family!
