Taco’s LoadMatch is an advanced infrastructure that enables efficient hydronic heating and cooling while delivering better comfort and reduced energy consumption. A LoadMatch system also reduces design, start-up, and commissioning time. LoadMatch is the marriage of two old ideas—single-pipe distribution and primary-second pumping—wrapped around a new technology. The technology consists of maintenance-free, wet rotor circulators. The primary distribution system is a single-pipe loop; the secondary distribution system is a decoupled secondary piping loop for each terminal unit with flow delivered by a dedicated circulator. A LoadMatch single pipe uses small, low kW circulators that deliver water, on demand, to terminal units. The simplicity of LoadMatch permits the use of one size of pipe for large portions of the system. In single-loop installations, there is no limit to the number of terminal units that can be installed.
