Waiting for hot water is costly and wasteful

Waiting for hot water is costly and wasteful

Think about this. There are approximately 90 million single-family homes in the US where the hot water faucet is turned on to run a minute or two to finally provide hot water. That amounts to 7,000-10,000 gallons of fresh water per year per home. This water ends up in the municipal treatment facility only to be reprocessed at a cost to you and often released in river where your precious water leaves your community. Your local aquifer is not limitless, so conservation is not only a good idea, it is a requirement for today and all tomorrows.

ACT D’Mand Kontrols® System is a patented system that saves the water in your standing hot water line, redirecting it back to your hot water heater each time hot water is needed. The result is that you get hot water instantly without discharging thousands of gallons of water waiting for it. The electronically controlled re-circulatory pump system allows the existing plumbing to circulate the hot water to remote fixtures by using both the hot and cold water piping. This is accomplished without allowing any hot water to enter the cold water line. The return on investment is often realized in less than two years. The energy and water cost savings are an average of $250 to $300 per year for the average home.  And the cost to operate the system is $1 per year.  The ACT D’Mand Kontrols System is approved by every major Green Building program.
