  • Taco Comfort Solutions® is celebrating and embracing its 100 year history while innovating for the future. Taco, a third-generation, family-owned company based in Cranston, RI, engineers and manufactures high-efficiency heating, cooling, and air quality comfort systems. Taco has sales and manufacturing locations in the United States, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, and Vietnam.

    Founded by Elwood White in 1920 as the Thermal Appliance Company, Taco expanded under the leadership of White’s son, John Hazen White. As the company grew, the Thermal Appliance Company name was shortened to T-A-C-O, or Taco.

    John Hazen White, Jr., or Johnny to those who know him, succeeded his father.  Under his leadership, the Taco Family of Companies has grown dramatically. Johnny has carried his father’s vision forward, building innovative and dependable heating, cooling, and plumbing solutions. Taco has also been an industry leader through training, investing heavily in onsite, online, and field training programs.

    In 2019, Johnny brought Cheryl Merchant on board as President to help drive the future growth of the company. Throughout Taco’s 100 years, the one factor that has remained constant is the White Family ownership. Johnny’s sons John III and Ben are actively involved in the company’s leadership.

    “I think it’s so important and such a blessing to maintain ownership of the company within the White family. It allows us to make the right decisions to ensure the success of our employees, customers, and business partners,” said White, Jr.

    The Taco Family of Companies includes Taco Comfort Solutions, Taconova, Hydroflo Pumps, Taco Italia, and Precision Investment Foundry Asia (PIFA).

  • Taco Comfort Solutions® has expanded their family of easy-to-use, ECM high-efficiency circulators with the addition of the 0034e™ and 0034ePlus™ models.  With a maximum of 34 feet of head and 50 gpm, the new circulators offer up to 85 percent energy savings over a conventional circulator.

    These circulators are available with cast iron or NSF/ANSI 61 & 372 certified stainless steel volutes, so they are ideal for closed-loop heating systems as well as domestic hot water recirculation systems. Both circulators also offer a convenient, rotatable control box cover for a professional look, no matter the orientation of the installed circulator.

    The 0034e features an easy-to-use dial with five operating modes, including constant pressure, fixed speed, Taco’s exclusive activeADAPT™ self-adjusting proportional pressure, and 0-10V capability. The 0034ePlus adds proportional pressure and more constant pressure settings as well as a digital display with real-time feedback, including watts, GPM, feet of head, and RPM. Both circulators are dual-voltage 115V/230V.

    Both new circulators come with exclusive features that make Taco’s ECM high-efficiency circulators so easy to use, including SureStart® automatic unblocking and air purging, BIO Barrier® black iron oxide protection, dual electrical knockouts, six-inch stranded leads, recessed flange nut-grabbers and double insulation so no ground wire is needed.

The contractor friendly PC board layout eliminates incorrect wiring and the “unfinished” look of conventional zone valve installations. The sturdy screw connections add even more reliability, while the external indicator lights provide instant diagnostic feedback to reduce installation time and troubleshooting. For those larger jobs, the -EXP controls can be expanded up to 120 zones with priority. All Taco Zone Valve Controls are UL listed and are available in three, four, five, and six zones.

    Taco Switching Relays combine clearly labeled PC board layouts with advanced features that allow for total system customization. Whether using basic priority switching, or add-on power controls, the job is made easy. External indicator lights provide instant diagnostic feedback, making a snap of service calls or new installation start-ups. All switching relays are UL listed, and are compatible with conventional and programmable thermostats. For those larger jobs, the -EXP Switching Relays can be expanded up to 120 zones (20 zoning panels) with priority. Taco Switching Relays are available in one, two, three, four, and six zones.

    The Taco Priority Zoning Circulator combines the reliability of the 00 circulator with the convenience and efficiency of a PC board mounted switching relay package. Each zoning circulator features low and high voltage terminal strips for ease of electrical hookup, as well as a built-in priority switch. The priority switch allows the installer to choose the zone that requires the most attention. When activated, only the specified circulator will run. The priority zoning circulator can be used in conjunction with other circulators or zone valves, and is ideal for indirect hot water heaters, adding another zone, zoning with circulators, and for prioritizing under-sized zones. They are available in a full range of sizes from 003-0014 to match your specific system requirements. The Hydro Air Fan Control is the ideal interface between the thermostat and air handler. The Fan Control provide advanced diagnostic capabilities, universal thermostat compatibility, a simplified wiring layout, and automatic multispeed switching. It also includes built-in fan delays, pump and boiler contacts, pump exercise timer, and a secondary aquastat connection for freeze protection.
