Raw materials for these products are responsibly sourced on a global basis. Many of Taco's products require fewer components and less finite materials, and they require less energy to operate.
Examples of energy-efficient Taco Comfort Solutions products include the 00e® Series of ECM circulators, the LoadMatch® circulator-LOFlo injection mixing system, the TacoGenie(TM) domestic hot water recirculation pump, the Zone Sentry Zone Valve, and solar hot water products.
