What is Cv and Why Does it Matter?

June 18: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

Circulators are sized according to flow and head, but the most common question we hear is, “How do I find them?” In this program, you’ll learn how to calculate those two critical factors for residential hybrids. But you’ll also learn how mixing valves, zone valves, and other types of valves can add hidden head loss to your systems. This thing known as Cv can trip you up if you’re not careful.

ECM Circulator Essentials

July 23: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

ECM stands for Electronically Commuted Motor. And those three little letters are transforming residential hydronics. But do we really know what we need to know about how these remarkable little devices work?

Variable speed technology can do wonders for the modern residential hydronic system, but they’re not magic. They don’t size themselves, and they don’t take the thinking out of circulator selection, no matter how many times you press that AUTO button. In this session, we’ll dispel the many myths and common falsehoods about ECM circulators. We’ll show you the real value of these things, which will help you create the most efficient system possible for your customers.

ECM and the Value of Bluetooth Technology

August 20: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

Do you really need a circulator that connects to an app via Bluetooth? No, but there are plenty of reasons to consider it. In this fast-paced, fact-filled hour, we’ll discuss why Bluetooth connectivity can benefit you and your customers. And, you’ll get to see the Taco 0018e in action and how you can use our app to dial in circulator performance for maximum pump and system efficiency.

Circulators or Zone Valves?

September 24: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

If you were King of Hydronics and you could dictate to the industry how to zone a system, would you insist on one circulator per zone, or would you rule in favor of one circulator and zone valves?

It’s an age-old question, and in this session of Taco Tuesday, we’ll examine the pros, cons, realities, and myths of both options. And by the time the hour is up, we’ll provide you with the ultimate and definitive answer as to which one is better and why.

Finer Points of Mod-Con Boiler Piping – Hydraulic Separators, Buffer Tanks, and Making Sure You Get the Circulator Right

October 22: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

On your next Mod-Con boiler installation, should you use a hydraulic separator, a buffer tank, or just a pair of closely spaced tees? In this webinar, you’ll learn how to install each of them correctly and, more importantly, when, where, and why you should choose one over the other two.

Additionally, you’ll learn how to make sure you have the right boiler circulator and the dangers of over-pumping.

Air-To-Water Heat Pumps and Low Temperature Hydronics

November 19: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

The movement to heat pump technology for heating and cooling homes isn’t going to slow down. Air-to-water heat pumps offer several advantages over an air-to-air style heat pump, particularly when it comes to delivering the comfort of low-temperature hydronics.

 

In this fast-paced, info-packed hour, we’ll discuss the practical water temperature limitations of Air-to-Water heat pumps and show you how to design low-temperature hydronics to deliver comfort and efficiency without compromise.

Sizing, Piping & Pumping for Indirect Water Heaters

December 17: Residential Focus
Presented by John Barba, Dave Holdorf, and Rick Mayo

There’s more to sizing and piping an indirect than meets the eye. In this fast-paced, fact-filled hour, you’ll learn how to read the specs of an indirect, how boiler size impacts recovery, why proper pipe sizing and circulator selection are important, and how to make an indirect think it’s bigger than it really is.
