On-Demand Efficiency

The On-Demand Efficiency (ODE) program provides on-demand recirculation controls for multifamily building water heating loop systems at no cost to qualifying SoCalGas® customers.

What is a demand controlled pump?

A CDHW system typically has no controls, which means the pump continuously circulates hot water through the recirculation loop without stopping, even during periods of no hot water usage. In this scenario the recirculation loop is continuously losing heat to the surrounding environment.

A demand control system commands the pump to turn on only when there is hot water demand. When hot water is needed, the pump turns on and moves water throughout the building. When there is no demand, the hot water stays in the insulated storage tank, which is much more efficient at retaining heat than the copper recirculation line.
