Hot Water Recirculation System Installation & Repair
Conventional home water heating supply systems often waste thousands of gallons of water per year while residents wait for hot water to circulate through pipes. Hot water recirculation pump systems provide homes with almost instantaneous hot water at the fraction of the time it requires a normal water heater to circulate.
Our technicians are licensed to install and repair all types and brands of hot water recirculation systems. Call us for an estimate on an installation or consultation on repairs to your hot water recirculation system.
Common Issues with a Hot Water Recirculation System:
- Corrosion – Additional pressure and hot, chemically treated water puts added stress on pipes, sometimes causing accelerated corrosion.
- Energy waste – Ensuring proper insulation and using “demand”-type systems help offset the excess energy and heat waste.
- Air pockets – Air bubbles formed in the pump can cause issues, prolonging time to provide hot water and creating unwanted noise in the pipes. Opening the air escape valve to allow air to drain from the pipes will remedy this issue.
