Save water and energy with efficient hot water systems

Hot water recirculation pumps offer environmentally-friendly, cost-effective solutions to allow installers to offer customers significant savings. Using the latest innovations in pump technology, you can increase customers’ home comfort while decreasing their water and energy bills.


Hot water systems that pay for themselves:

Most households waste between 15,000 and 20,000 litres of water every year - enough to supply 7,500 people with fresh drinking water for an entire day.

Such excessive waste is not only bad for the environment, contributing to the world’s water shortage crisis, but it’s also more costly for the customer, who pays a premium in water and energy bills as a result of their daily wait for water to reach the right temperature. 

A Grundfos recirculator provides instant hot water from the moment a tap is turned on. Using intelligent technological innovations, the pump can use up to 90% less energy compared to traditional recirculation systems. Within 18 to 24 months, the recirculator essentially pays for itself through savings made on bills, making the COMFORT range an easy upsell for customers as the pumps available offer win-win solutions.

Saving customers money and saving installers time:

Time is money when it comes to installation. The wrong sized pipe or a hard to replace pump can waste an installer’s time and delay subsequent appointments. This often means that installers overload themselves with kit and components ‘just in case’.

Grundfos pumps are one-size-fits-all, making replacements swift and easy. Products within the COMFORT range come with corresponding pipe fittings and are even compatible with competitors’ systems. Less room for errors means no subsequent call backs, trips back to the site, or delays while waiting for specific parts to arrive. 

ALPHA N and UPS N pumps take the attributes of the COMFORT range one step further, incorporating additional optimising features to enable users to get the most out of their installations.
