The TACO Comfort Solutions Live-fire Mobile Cart, jointly developed by Wales Darby's Contractor Services Group Manager, Rick Koester, and VP of HVAC Department, Steve Poli, is now ready to hit the road just in time for the upcoming heating season. This mobile training facility serves as a hands-on educational platform for ECM technology, which is set to become the industry standard according to the Department of Energy (DoE) by 2025. The cart showcases a range of hydronic accessories offered by TACO, presenting a comprehensive solution package for contractors. Its portability allows it to be easily transported via van to various Distributor Counter Days and events, where Wales Darby trainers and Sales teams can provide valuable training sessions.
Among the featured items on the cart are the 007e, 015e, and 018e ECM Circulators, VT2218 Delta-T Heat Pump, Zone Sentry Valves, Magnet Filtration, 4900-Series Air Separator, Hydro-separator, Switching Relays (SR), Zone-valve Controller (ZVC), and 5000-Series Mixing Valve, all provided by TACO Comfort Solutions. Additional products from the Wales Darby linecard, including Spacepak Thin Wall, Flexcon's Expansion Tank, and Electro Industries' Mini-Boiler, are also incorporated to simulate a home heating setup. Notably, the use of the In-line Balancing Valve is a key highlight of the showcase, allowing users to simulate room dimensions and the required linear feet of baseboard for heating. Combined with the TACO 018e Circulator Pump, featuring Bluetooth technology, users can adjust the resistance on the balancing valve and observe the reaction via an app displayed on a mounted tablet, gaining a better understanding of how this equipment can work together efficiently for optimal home heating.
