A recirculation pump lets you have hot water faster, but reduces efficiency.
Increase efficiency with the HotButton.
When the hot water pipes between you and your NPE-A heater cool down, the water inside cools down too. When you turn on your hot water, you feel that unpleasant cooler (or cold) water. Recirc pumps keep the water hot. But they use energy.
HotButton solves this problem. When you push the HotButton button, your NPE-A unit's internal recirculation pump and gas fired burner activate to heat up the water in the supply lines. In moments, that cold water is gone. You won't need to run the water until it gets hot. This saves you water and money.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q1: Do I need the Hot Button PCB board only to remotely turn the recirc pump on and off with the NaviLink app?
Q2: Continuing with the question above, do I need the Hot Button's button and wiring from it to the Hot Button PCB board to remotely turn the recirc pump on and off with the NaviLink app?
A2: No. Only the Hot Button circuit board installed is needed.
Q3: I want to control the recirculation pump with the NaviLink app. After the Hotbutton is installed, and the user is miles away from home, does someone need to push the HotButton's button to activate the recirc pump?
A3: No, the user can press the HotButton function on the app and the NPE-A unit will start recirculation. Of course, the HotButton must be installed for that function to work.
