The average distance between the hot water tank and say the washing machine is 8 m and those pipes are normally cold until you use the water, by the time the appliance fills with water you may have only just put a drop of hot into the machine so it’s worth fitting a circulation system to you hot water so that the appliance always have hot water next to them.

But if the water is already hot this comes down to 7 pence per load
