Build Green with Taco and LEED
> E-mail Newsletters
The green building movement keeps growing thanks in part to LEED, the voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings advanced by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and environmentally friendly products like many from Taco.
Two outstanding examples of Taco green products are the innovative, energy-saving Taco LoadMatch single-pipe hydronic system
and our D'Mand recirculating water system
that saves water, energy and money while delivering hot water on demand. Either can help you earn LEED certification on your next project.
With thousands of residential and commercial buildings already LEED-certified and thousands more in the pipeline, if you haven't designed or installed a system for a green building yet, chances are you will soon. Applying for LEED certification can be confusing. To help, the USGBC now makes available for download on line
many of the documents, templates, project tools, reference guides and other resources you need to understand and simplify the certification process.

Featured Product: 0010 3-Speed Service Pump
Our 0010 3-Speed Service Pump
features heavy-duty construction for longer life, a 4-bolt universal flange, removable high-flow Integral Flow Check (IFC), quiet efficient operation and the reliability you expect from Taco.
Better yet, it can save time and money on almost any residential service call. It's specifically designed as an ideal replacement circulator for most commonly used circulators. Just install it and set the speed to match the original pump performance.
"This pump is in a category all by itself because it will replace any residential pump you might encounter," says Scott O'Brien of O'Brien Heating & A/C in a recent article in The Wholesaler

HVAC Pros Ask…
Question: Is the Taco zone valve a three wire zone valve and how do I wire it?
The Taco Zone Valve
is a 3 TERMINAL
zone valve. Follow these steps to wire it:
- One terminal of a 24-volt, 40VA transformer is wired to one side of the thermostat. The other side of the thermostat is wired to terminal #1 of the zone valve operator.
- The #2 terminal of the zone valve operator goes back to the other terminal of the transformer.
- To activate the boiler control, run a wire from the #2 terminal to one of the T terminals of the boiler control.
- Run another wire from the #3 terminal of the zone valve to the other T or TV terminal of the boiler control.
