Is the 3-Speed Circulator Dead?

February 28: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

With the advent of small ECM variable speed circulators for residential applications, is the old standby 3-speed circulator a “dead pump walking?” In this thoughtful program, we’ll discuss the future of standard efficiency circulators and why the old stand-by still has a place in residential hydronics. At least for now.
