Hot Water Pumps
All tankless water heaters require more time for the hot water to reach the fixture than with tank type storage water heaters. This is because in order to heat the water to full temperature it must pass completely through the heat exchanger. That takes time. Some tankless units take up to 20 seconds longer to produce hot water at the fixture!
As long as you’ve decided to go with a Bosch tankless water heater, whether you are in search of high energy efficiency or unlimited hot water, you might as well maximize the convenience factor for yourself, and make your hot water system “water efficient” as well as energy efficient.
