Circulator Pump

An electric pump that circulates hot water in radiant heating systems. Sometimes used to provide for 'instant' hot water to bathrooms and showers.

The use of circulator pump to move hot water from a boiler, water tank or tankless water heater is a wonderful way to create energy efficient radiant heat to one or more areas of the house. Using such a pump to provide 'instant' hot water to various faucets can consume a great deal of energy unless the pump is equipped with a timer. Such a timer must be in easy reach in order to be set to run during the times of most likely hot water usage.
