ACT, Inc., which stands for Advanced Conservation Technology, created the Act D'mand Kontrols system to help conserve hot water that would otherwise be lost. The company has been delivering hot water on demand, without waste or unnecessary energy consumption, since its debut in 1992. Their unique and technologically advanced product that is comprised of sophisticated electronic circuitry works with any standard or tankless water heater to save water, save money, and provide peace of mind.
You may spend anywhere from two to four minutes in your shower or at your sink waiting for your hot water to come to full temperature after opening the faucet. Surprisingly, this equals about 27 gallons of water per day, or anywhere from 7000 to 12,000 gallons of water per year, that flows down the drain while you wait. In a city with 100,000 homes, that is a staggering 1.2 billion gallons of water flushed down the drain every single year.
The Act D'mand Kontrols system works to reduce this waste with products known as Hot Water Recirculation Systems. These change the plumbing loop and ensure that hot water arrives at the faucet immediately and all of the cold water that sits in the pipes returns to the hot water heater. Since you no longer have to wait for the water at the faucet to heat up, you save gallons upon gallons of water every single day. The benefits of Act D'mand Kontrols systems are numerous and include money savings, energy efficiency, environmental friendliness, and enhanced comfort. The systems themselves are relatively low-cost and take very little time to install. Since it is possible to locate them under the fixture that is furthest from the water heater, one unit can supply your entire home with hot water on demand. Your water and sewage bills will begin to drop immediately, and you can rest comfortably in the knowledge that you are protecting one of the world's most valuable resources - fresh water. What's more, you will also conserve a significant amount of energy. The system's recirculation effect also helps in extending the life of your electric or gas hot water heater. Since the water frequently circulates through the pipes and the hot water heater, it has less time to sit, and this means that sediments and scale do not collect as quickly. It also delays rust and leakage, ensuring that you replace your water heater less often than usual. You can activate the system at the source using a number of different methods, which include motion control systems, remote transmitters, and push-button operation. While there are other circulation systems available on the market, only Act D'mand is available to you on demand. It provides the same money- and energy-saving benefits, but because it operates only on demand, it uses no more energy than a standard non-circulating water heating system. Whether you have an electric, gas, propane, solar, or even a tankless water heater, the Act D'mand Kontrols system will give you comfort, efficiency, and money savings.
