The results of experimental investigation of determining the time of temperature drop in domestic hot water circuit were presented in this paper on the example of single-family house. The test were carried out on vertical sections of installations made of PE-X/Al/PE pipes (cross-linked polyethylene and aluminum) with and without insulation. The temperature drop process was investigated in temperature range typical for domestic hot water installation from 55ºC to 40ºC. On the basis of the obtained results with appropriate adjustment of the working time of circulation pump, energy savings of 90% were achieved.
