Last month at AHR Expo 2018 in Chicago, HPAC Engineering's Rob McManamy caught up with Johnny Hazen White Jr., the colorful owner and executive chairman of Taco Comfort Solutions, and CEO Wil VandeWeil.

One big theme at AHR this year was connectivity, and Taco has been moving rapidly in that area to meet customer demand. Referring to the last few years of product development, "hardware is changing insignificantly," White said. "Electronics and controls are changing rapidly."
