The ACT D’MAND Kontrols pumping system is not a luxury item, but it feels like one because it is such a product of convenience. Turn on the water faucet in the kitchen or bath for hot water, and presto, instant hot water. No waiting around for the water to heat up to 120 degrees from 50. In that respect, ACT D’MAND provides a creature comfort of home.
If providing on-demand hot water were the only feature of the ACT D’MAND pumping system, it just might be considered an extravagance. But ACT D’MAND is a water-conservation device. It also saves energy. For every 7 gallons of water running down the drain, waiting for it to get hot, that’s 1 kilowatt-hour of lost energy, which represents 1.5 pounds of carbon dioxide. Preventing a loss of energy, not to mention the prevention of wasted water, translates to utility bill savings for customers.
So is ACT D’MAND a luxury item with water-conservation properties, or a water-conserving device that’s also luxuriously convenient? Yes. It’s the ultimate win-win scenario for having hot water on demand and saving water at the same time.
