May 10:  Residential Focus
ECM Circulators vs. PSC Circulators
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

The industry has taken to referring to ECM circulators as “smart pumps,” that will “do the thinking for you.” Both are inherently false. They’re not that smart and they certainly don’t think. That, friends, is your job. Well, if that’s the case, then what’s the different between ECM technology and those good old fashioned permanent split capacitor circulators we’ve been using for decades? In this Taco Tuesday webinar, we will examine the difference between ECM and PSC, and discuss the advantages of both so you can make the best choice for your customers.

May 24:  Residential Focus
Deep Dive into the Residential ECM lineup – VT2218, 0018e, 0015e3, 007e
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

In the last Taco Tuesday, we reviewed the difference between ECM and PSC circulators. In this session, we’ll take a deep dive into the world of ECM circulators. We’ll share with you what they do (and don’t do) and provide you with real world information to help you choose the right circulator for the right application and – most importantly – how to set them up properly so you and your customer get the most bang for the buck. These things don’t size themselves or set up automatically – no matter who makes them. We’ll show you the right way.

June 7:  Residential Focus
Hydraulic Institute High Efficiency Ratings
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

Soon you’ll be seeing Energy Efficiency labels on all residential ECM circulators, if you haven’t already. It’s a new system initiated by the Hydraulics Institute to provide contractors and homeowners information on the relative efficiency of different circulators, and to illustrate the relative energy savings compared to standard efficiency circulators. In this one-hour session, we’ll show you how to interpret those numbers, what they really mean and how to show your customers that you’re bringing them the best and most efficient systems possible.

June 14:  Commerical Focus

  • Understanding is Essential
  • Components
  • Apply Psychrometric Data
  • Solve HVAC System Design Challenges
  • The Study of the Properties of Moist Air
  • Drybulb / Wetbulb
  • Dew Point
  • Relative Humidity
  • And Much, Much More!

June 21:  Residential Focus
Low, Low Temperature Hydronic Applications
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

It used to be simple, right? A cast iron boiler, a high limit and some heat emitters and bang, you have a hydronic system. But it’s not so simple now. Modulating-condensing boilers love lower water temperatures. But retrofitting a low temperature boiler into what used to be a high temperature system requires a little inspiration (and maybe, just maybe, a little math). In this Taco Tuesday webinar, we’ll dive into why (and how) mod-con boilers can work effectively and efficiently with older systems, and how to make that new boiler work best so that you can give your customers the most bang for their buck.
