Make the choice as easy as one, two, three On January 1, 2013, the standalone circulator market changed forever. This change in rules was not surprising as it is estimated that pumps consume ten per cent of the world’s electrical energy. This legislation specified the eco-design requirements for electric motors that include glandless standalone circulators, as well as glandless circulators that are integral within other products. This was the most significant legislative change to ever take place within the standalone domestic and light commercial pump circulator market. Today, all glandless standalone circulators, with the exception of those specifically designed for primary circuits of thermal solar systems and heat pumps need to have an energy efficiency index (EEI) of less than 0.27. The Grundfos domestic circulator range delivers an EEI as low as 0.15 and runs on as little as 5W. The benefit of fitting these efficient pumps is something which is becoming increasingly clear with recent, and seemingly ongoing, energy price hikes and the huge numbers of households now recognised as being in fuel poverty. The ALPHA2 and ALPHA2L circulators have been a success since they were launched and have proved themselves as multiple award winners both in the UK as well as in Europe. With almost three million units produced and sold since their introduction, they have proved their reliability and efficiency. Now the Grundfos pump range covers domestic circulators for general use in new and replacement situations (including tight fit installations) that also offer the highest energy efficiency ratings. The ALPHA2L replaces the 15-50 and 15-60. It has variable and fixed speeds. The ALPHA2 is a circulator pump for clients who want highest levels of energy saving possible. It has LED power usage display and an AUTOADAPT efficiency system. The UPS2, a replacement pump and pump head for 15-50/60 pumps, fits onto old bodies and into boilers. One model replaces any 15-50/60 pump head and the design means it fits into the tightest of spaces. The energy saving opportunities that these products offer have recently received an important acknowledgement as - following on from extensive and lengthy pump industry lobbying - the Building Research Establishment has agreed to include circulator pumps in the Green Deal. The Green Deal has been designed to help consumers make energy saving improvements to their homes without having to pay the costs in advance. Instead, the associated costs of the improvements can be paid back over time with the resultant savings covering the repayment costs. enquiry number 144
