Timer or remote control? – one saves you more
Some Hot Water Recirculation systems are manufactured with a timer. ACT D’MAND® Kontrol® System’s replaced the timer with a remote access control. Timers are usually set for specific periods, eg: 6-11am. This means the pump is effectively permanently running during these set times time keeping the water in your pipes at your preferred temperature - using more power those a unit connect to a remote control.
Timers can restrict usage and benefits. If a timer is set for early mornings weekdays – then they’ll need to be altered for weekend or holiday use. Most people who use timers eventually reset them to work 24 hours a day as it saves them regularly having to change their timers for early starts or unexpected needs for hot water. The result? A huge increase in power use, plus additional wear and tear.
ACT D’MAND® Kontrol® System also features an auto turn off function. This means the pump will turn off in 4 minutes if the desired water temperature is not achieved. Our experience shows that if the pump is working for more than 2 minutes to prime your pipes – there may be a problem with your hot water service. This feature acts as an early warning that your water heater may need servicing.
Each ACT D’MAND® Kontrol® System unit (pump) comes with a 5 year manufacturers guarantee.
