Horse power is a unit of power, with one horse power equalling 745.7 watts.
Amperage, or amps, refers to the amount of electricity flowing through the wires.
Voltage, or volts, is a measurement of the difference between two electric fields (in heating terms, the difference between the Earth's electrical field and the electricity running through your wires).
The Bumble Bee (model HEC-2) represents the very latest in variable speed wet rotor circulator technology. Its high efficiency ECM motor uses up to 85% less electricity than
a standard circulator, and its out-of-the-box settings and 360° swivel flange makes it a breeze to install. Most importantly, the Bumble Bee's Delta-T variable speed technology maximizes the overall efficiency of your heating system. The Bumble Bee is engineered for energy savings, ease of installation, versatility in the field and ultimate comfort.

Nothing really wrong about this pump except for two factors that are deal breakers for me. One, it really is loud. It is. I have my radiant pumps in a utility closet off the living room, and you can hear the thing whine all the time. I replaced them with the Grundfos Alpha, which are absolutely quiet. And two, the Grundfos are about thirty bucks cheaper.I wish I had just gone with Grundfos in the first place. Taco pumps are great, but with the new technologies, the smart pumps like the Alpha and Bumblebee save 70% or more on the electric bill--electric is the big negative about radiant because the electric to run several zones is quiet expensive. If you live in a tier'ed billing area like I do, where the more electric you use, the higher the cost, the smart pumps can cut your electric bill in half. Mine plummeted, and now I feel great having a radiant system that is truly efficient and green.It's a no brainer to get a smart pump. And if you care about noise and initial cost, you won't get a Bumblebee. Why are they more expensive anyway? I doubt they're made better.

Comments about Bumble Bee Variable Speed Circulator w/ Integral Flow Check, 1/20 HP:
I used this for a radiant heat loop on my house. I will order to more for the other loops. I have read the other comments about noise and I can see where you might not like it your living space is near them. But I am very happy with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Buzzing right along
By Garn WHS2000
from Reed City MI
The first BB I was sent had a bad temp sensor right out of the box. I ran the unit on constant power but found it failed the first night I had it. I contacted Taco tech support and found I had installed everything correctly. Supply house sent me a new unit and it has been great for the last month.
Big savings on electricity
By LodgeFarm Guy
from Fairlee, VT
This little circulator is ideal if you need continuous flow hydronic heat. It can tell the temperature of the supply and return water and will optimize the flow rate to maintain a specified temperature drop. It will then settle on the least amount of power required to do the job. I'm using it to put heat behind tile in a walk in shower in VT. Approx 150 feet of 1/2 inch pex going to the second floor. The pump provides 6.2 gallons per minute at 10 watts. That's right, 10 watts!The installation instructions could be more clear (like make sure put the heat sensors on before you start the pump, and the little screw that holds the electrical cover on is too small for words, but other than that this little baby is perfect.
next best thing, as to the standard, 007

The only way to improve beyond the relieable 007.
Sounds Like a Bee
from Butler, NJ
Seems to be a very efficient pump but VERY LOUD. An ECM motor certainly makes some rectifier noise, but these pumps are over the top loud, especially at anything other than the lowest speed. The GPM indicator is a gimmick at best as it is far from accurate. Watts indicator is pretty accurate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Works as advertised - Very Happy
from Pembroke, MA
Replaced an 'older style' circulator that worked fine heating my basement family room, office, and laundry area which was a single loop operating under control of a line voltage thermostat. I initially built the rooms and added this zone in the 70's. I merely swapped out the circulator and operate it in the Delta mode. I can barely hear it when it initially comes on but then it slows way down and is inaudible. I am delighted with my decision to make this purchase.

A bit whiny, but good pumps after all
Put two for separated zones with Weil Mclain Ultra S3 155. Pumps are a bit whiny at the full speed, but they quite down once return temp rises (I'm using then in delta T mode). Easy to install, wire and configure.Will by two more for additional zones later.
