Presented by John Barba, Taco

What do variable speed circulators REALLY do? There's so much misinformation and misunderstanding in the industry today on these remarkable little devices - they have tremendous benefits, but they aren't plug 'n play, they don't take the thinking out of circulator selection and they most definitely aren't MAGIC. Join Taco's John Barba for a fast-paced, fact-filled program and learn what variable speed circulators really do, what they don't do and how to best utilize them in your hydronic systems. Also, see how new Bluetooth functionality can help you program a circulator as accurately as possible without relying on mumbo-jumbo or misapplied technology.
