Reduced carbon emissions added benefit to water saving pump
ACT D’MAND Kontrols Systems, a California-based manufacturer of their patented recirculating water pump for residential homes designed to reduce up to 10,000 gallons of water per year per home, saves much more than water according to the US Department of Energy.
The system, installed in new home construction and retrofitted in existing homes, saves substantial amounts of water by returning the ambient water in the hot water lines to the hot water heater when a hot water faucet is turned on. Hot water then replaces the ambient water, reaching the faucet in a few seconds instead of running the water for several minutes to finally get hot water.
The water savings translates to 2,000 kilowatt hours of energy savings per year on average. The Marriot Time Share Condo Group on Aruba conducted their own test and discovered substantial findings: if 1,000 condos/homes saved 15 gallons of water a day the annual environmental benefit would be:
- 5,475,000 gallons of water saved
- 1,680,646 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions avoided
- 3,583 pounds of nitrogen oxides avoided
- 7,298 pounds of sulfur dioxide avoided
ACT D’MAND Kontrols Systems are sold throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Spain and other countries. They are designed, developed and made in the USA. Built for today. Dedicated to the Future®
