Ultra-Efficient Laing Thermotech Heating Products Deliver Instant Hot Water to Every Faucet
Laing Termotech's Autocirc® and UltraCirc® hot water circulation pumps allow homeowners to enjoy hot water instantly at their faucets and showers-saving energy, water and money. The typical family can save up to 15,000 gallons of water annually.
Chula Vista, CA -- September 27, 2006 -- Laing Thermotech Inc. is pleased to offer an inventive line of hot water circulation pumps that give consumers the convenience of having hot water at every faucet in their home-instantly.
"Many homeowners complain about the amount of time it takes for hot water to be available at their shower or faucet," said Laing's CEO, Scott S. Shimer. "Some folks have reported waiting up to two minutes for hot water to start to flow. Laing has developed a number of innovative products-including the Autocirc1® and Autocirc2® and UltraCirc® pumps-to solve this problem for homeowners."
With Laing's super-efficient hot water delivery products, homeowners no longer have to wait for water to heat up at their shower or faucet. They can also benefit from saving a considerable amount of energy, water and money. In fact, using the Autocirc or UltraCirc system will save the average family of four up to 15,000 gallons of water each year. Costing less than 10 cents a day to run, these products can conserve enough energy to pay for themselves in less than two years.
The Autocirc is geared for retrofit applications, while the UltraCirc is designed for new construction. Both systems integrate easily with the existing hot water supply line and can be installed by homeowners or their local plumber. Here's how they work:
Autocirc1: The Autocirc1 pump installs under the sink or faucet farthest from the water heater-where hot water has to travel for the longest time. A built-in temperature sensor automatically turns the pump on when the water temperature in the hot water supply line cools down to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool water in the hot water supply line is then pumped back into the cold water line and back into the water heater. Hot water will also be instantly available at all other faucets in the supply line between the water heater and the faucet where the Autocirc pump is installed.
Autocirc2: The Autocirc2 works in a similar fashion to the Autocirc1, except it has two components: a pump and valve. The Autocirc2 pump is installed at the water heater and controlled by a timer, while the valve is mounted under the sink farthest from the water heater. When the hot water supply line becomes cool, the adjustable thermostatic valve allows the cool water in the hot water supply line to flow into the cold water supply line, replacing it with hot water.
UltraCirc: The UltraCirc is a compact recirculation system that includes a timer-controlled pump and several valves. A return line is run from the last tap on the hot water supply line back to the water heater. Hot water is circulated in the supply line and immediately becomes available whenever someone turns on the faucet.
