Lower Building Ownership Costs With Taco iWorX

iWorX from Taco Electronic Solutions is the first affordable web-based building management, monitoring and control system that eliminates the expensive cost cycle typically associated with BMS systems. With iWorX, there are no upgrade fees, no expensive software to buy and no service contracts. With iWorX, the first cost is the last cost.

How it works
Designed specifically for the commercial and high-end residential markets, iWorX delivers a flexible, easily scalable means of complete building control for both single locations and multi-building, multi-site installations from retail stores, offices and restaurants to apartments, religious buildings and single family residences. As a single source, fully integrated HVAC system control package, iWorX can reduce equipment operating and maintenance costs while maximizing building comfort and owner asset value.

iWorX Features
Increases Asset Values: iWorX not only saves energy. By eliminating upgrade fees, software costs and expensive maintenance contracts, iWorX lowers building operating costs and increases a building’s value.

Lowers Life Cycle Costs/Simplifies Service Calls: Typical BMS systems require multiple contractors to service a building. iWorX’s simple, self configuring network, eliminates the need for custom programming, software, expensive commissioning fees and time consuming service calls.

Freedom from proprietary platforms: Every iWorX controller is ready to run out of the box. The LON-based, open protocol backbone of iWorX features application and equipment-based controllers that are pre-programmed. There’s no software to buy or learn, no complicated field commissioning, and no subscriptions to buy.

Self-configuring controllers: When new devices are introduced, the menu-driven, touch-screen controller (LCI-3) recognizes and integrates them into the system automatically.

Compatible with your iPhone® and iPad®: Our mobile apps mean that iWorX can be accessed and controlled by any web enabled device.

The Air Quality in Your Home Affects Your Health

Today’s energy efficient homes trap stale air indoors, causing poor air quality and potential health problems for you and your family. What can you do? Rejuvenate your home with fresh, clean outdoor air…

You can significantly improve indoor air quality for you and your family with a Lifebreath® HRV; a Heat Recovery Ventilator that delivers clean, fresh outdoor air to every room in your home. The unique dual-stream airflow design keeps outgoing stale air separate from incoming fresh air and completely rejuvenates the air throughout your entire home up to eight times a day. Lifebreath’s balanced ventilation technology replaces indoor stale air with an identical amount of fresh air. This balanced ventilation is critical to prevent moisture build-up in your home during the heating season which can lead to expensive rot damage and hazardous mold.

Because of the unique ability of an HRV to transfer the temperature of indoor stale air to the incoming fresh air, you’ll realize lower heating and cooling costs year round while enjoying all the benefits superior indoor air quality delivers. In fact, the efficiency of the Lifebreath® HRV is so great that virtually none of the warmth collected from your home in winter is lost to the outside. In summer, the HRV works in reverse by removing heat from the incoming air and transferring it to the outgoing air, keeping your home cool and fresh.

Lifebreath® HRV Features
  • Easy To Install: Professional contractors can easily integrate a Lifebreath® HRV into a new home or retrofit the HRV into an existing system. 
  • Easy To Maintain: Twice yearly, remove the core and filters from the unit and rinse clean. Vacuum any dust from the unit and check weather hoods for leaves and other debris. 
  • ECM Motor: Optional upgrade for maximum energy savings.
  • Easy To Use: The ultra-sleek, Lifestyle Digital control panel features 4 operating modes and 5 fan speeds to meet changing household needs. The built-in dehumidistat automatically reduces indoor humidity levels in the winter by activating the fan. The ultra sleek, easy to read backlit LCD display is simple to use with an instruction card conveniently included at the back of the control. A built-in service/maintenance reminder display takes the guesswork out of remembering when to clean your unit.
