Hot Water on Demand
While ACT, Inc. D'MAND Kontrol® hot water recirculation systems are NOT on demand hot water heaters, also known as tankless heaters, they do dramatically reduce the wait for hot water. Often, when people look for on demand hot water heater systems they are looking for a way to get hot water to their fixtures rapidly. ACT, Inc.’s D'MAND Kontrol® recirculating hot water pumps send cold water in the plumbing back to the water heater, via the cold water or dedicated return line, while simultaneously bringing hot water to all fixtures on that plumbing line, in a matter of seconds. Unlike other hot water recirculation pumps, the ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® pump does not allow hot water into the cold water line, and delivers hot water to the furthest fixtures on-demand, rather than on a timer based system. Even if you are already using an on demand hot water system, like a tankless water heater, the ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® pump will reduce your wait time for hot water. It is important to note that the ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® pump WILL NOT void a tankless water heater’s warranty, while many other recirculation pumps will void a tankless water heater’s warranty.
ACT Inc.’s D’MAND Kontrol® pumps are compatible with gas and electric on demand water heating systems. The ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® pump is also compatible with tank water heaters.
If you are searching for an On Demand Water Heater, you should consider an ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® pump, because the D'MAND Kontrol® pump will deliver the hot water at a fast rate, while the On Demand Water Heater will only warm the water when there is a need for it. On Demand Water Heaters are also known as "tankless" water heaters and the ACT, Inc. D’MAND Kontrol® pump is uniquely suited for these applications. The D’MAND Kontrol® pump is ideal in tankless water heater situations because it circulates hot water on-demand rather than on a timer base system. If a recirculation system uses a timer and is running for hours each day, it will wear out the heat exchanger on a tankless water heater.
