About Taco Comfort Solutions

Our expertise, products, and support save our customers energy, money, and resources while improving their indoor environmental quality.
After 100 years in business, Taco Comfort Solutions both embraces its history and innovates for the future. Founded by Elwood White in 1920 as the Thermal Appliance Company, Taco launched its business with a firepot generator that heated water over a coal fire. The company 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., the family’s third generation owner, succeeded his father and, under his guidance, the company and its product offerings have grown dramatically. Johnny carried his father’s vision forward, building the finest training facility in the industry, developing new high-efficiency products and technologies, and expanding into international markets.
Johnny’s two sons, John III and Ben, representing the family’s fourth generation of ownership, are also actively involved in the business. Starting out with summer jobs in the maintenance department, John III and Ben have worked in most areas of the company and are currently involved in the executive leadership of the Taco Family of Companies.
