Featured Products: Variable Speed Pumps

A growing number of HVAC pros recognize variable speed pumping as a great way to boost system efficiency, save energy and provide better comfort to occupants of residential and commercial buildings of many kinds.

Taco variable speed pumps were designed to deliver all those benefits. Our variable speed pumps are versatile, so they are the ideal choice for many different kinds of hydronic systems. They're easy-to-install, easy-to-use, they consume less energy than traditional, fixed-speed pumps and they make the most of the energy they do use. Here are two of our latest models.

For Residential Jobs: The Bumble Bee High Efficiency Variable Speed Circulator
For residential and light commercial jobs, The Bumble Bee is the circulator that delivers the best of both worlds—the electrical savings of an ECM motor and the energy savings of variable speed pumping.

The Bumble Bee's high efficiency ECM motor uses up to 85% less electricity than a standard circulator. Its exclusive Delta-T variable speed technology multiplies those savings 15 to 19 times by reducing boiler short cycling, boosting boiler efficiency and maximizing the overall efficiency of the heating system.

In addition, the Bumble Bee contains a host of contractor-friendly features:
  • Fully programmable.
  • 360 degree swivel flange for universal fit-up.
  • Nut capture feature on flanges.
  • LED displays real-time mode, watt usage and GPM flow.
  • Integral Flow Check (IFC) included.
Made with the contractor in mind, with performance, versatility, and traditional Taco quality, the Bumble Bee High Efficiency Variable Speed Circulator is the go-to pump for all your residential and light commercial jobs.
