Hot water recirculating and insulation can save money because heat isn’t lost through the pipes and less water is wasted waiting for hot water to arrive.
Hot water is pumped through your hot water line and back to the water heater, decreasing wait time for hot water. Many times hot water can be had within 10 seconds to most fixtures.
The water that’s in hot water lines doesn’t cool off if the recirculation is on so the next use of hot water is still warm. This helps when adding water to a bath, the next person comes in to take a shower, the dishwasher draws more water to rinse etc. It is especially noticeable with a tankless water heater because it helps control fluctuations in water temperature.
