Information & Tips
Boiler circulator pumps use less electricity and are a more efficient method to circulate hot water in your heating system, which can reduce your operating costs 85% compared to traditional models.
Forced hot water (“hydronic”) heating systems use circulator pumps to move heated water from boilers to radiators and back. Electronically commutated motor (ECM) circulator pumps can modulate their speed and use permanent magnet motors that don’t require any electricity.
Traditional boiler circulator pumps run at one fixed speed, while using some electricity to magnetize their rotor. Electronically commutated motor (ECM) circulator pumps can modulate their speed and use magnetic motors that don’t require any electricity to run.

When selecting a boiler circulator pump you need one that’s the proper size for your heating system. Oversized pumps can create issues with the flow of water and decrease efficiency, leading to an increase in your fuel consumption. Have an HVAC professional help you determine the correct size boiler circulator pump for your home to eliminate any performance issues which may cost you more money.
