Balancing Cost Savings

Don’t Pay Less When You Can Pay More!

Traditional manual balancing is labor-intensive and time-consuming, requiring several contractors to balance one valve at a time, often revisiting valves over and over to adjust for inadequate flow or temperature. Due to this, manual balancing inevitably leads to hefty labor costs and frequent callbacks to accommodate for the changing demands of a dynamic system.

The CircuitSolver® Solution

The CircuitSolver® thermostatic balancing valve automatically adjusts flow through a domestic hot water recirculation system to maintain a set temperature at the end of each supply branch.

Dynamic and self-modulating, CircuitSolver® balances a system in minutes and automatically directs hot water where it is needed, dynamically adjusting to satisfy changing system needs. CircuitSolver® effectively eliminates the need for manual balancing labor and callbacks, saving a substantial amount of time and money.

Cost Savings

In the Spring of 2020, CircuitSolver® conducted a nation-wide survey of plumbing contractors to quantify the cost savings of replacing manual balancing valves with the CircuitSolver® thermostatic balancing valve. Data was collected on total costs associated with balancing a system including total labor time, employee salaries, required contractors per job, frequency of callbacks, and materials used.

The survey concluded that, when directly comparing the total manual vs. thermostatic balancing costs of a 10-story DHWS, implementing the CircuitSolver® balancing valve would reduce total costs by 44%. Click here to see the balancing cost savings calculations!
