If I were to put a recirculating system in, I would put it on an automatic timer so that it kicked on only when I expected to use it regularly, for example for a morning shower, time it to go on about 30 minutes before you normally get up and shut off an hour later. It wouldn't be perfect but if it met your need 80%+ of the time, that would be pretty good.

At worst you could run it during the day and off at night. Or off while you are at work as well. Keeping it running all the time could be expensive.
