Circulators used for hydronic and radiant heating systems have become more energy-efficient thanks to Variable Speed- ECM (Electronically Commutated Motor) technology. The intelligent speed control these circulators provide drastically reductions to heating expenses, and electrical energy used by circulator pumps.
- ECM motor cuts electrical consumption by up to 85%
- Taco’s exclusive Delta-T technology boosts that savings by 15 to 19 times
- Maximizes boiler efficiency, reduces short cycling
- Matches flow to actual heating load
- Guarantees the best performance of any system you install or upgrade
We use variable speed, ECM circulator pumps on our our hydronic heating installations.
Not only can they cut electric usage down by 60% over standard circulator pumps. By only allowing just “the right amount” of heat through each and every zone, the ECM pumps seriously reduces amount of fuel usage, compared to conventional circulator pumps. In the state of Connecticut we have a $100 dollar instant rebate. After the instant $100 rebate, these pumps are not far from the price as an old fashioned pump so it’s just plain common sense to use them.
On commercial or multifamily properties when replacing large standard commercial circulator pumps, a new variable speed ECM pump could offer you surprising operational savings. Calculated and proven from our suppliers before and equipment is purchased or one bolt is tightens. With professional software, we can show you exactly how much savings you will receive with variable speed ECM pumps vs the old conventional “old” circulator pumps.
