Taco Switching Relay

Can I apply 24VAC across the R & W terminals on the t-stat input connections as a demand?

    No if you do you

    will burn out the transformer in the relay. The connections to R and W have to be dry contacts such as thermostat, aquastat, or end switch on a zone valve.

    Dry contacts...

    Tim, I think he means to jump out the terminals.  No, do not apply 24 vac, yes jump out or dry contacts like in your t-stat.  Board provides it own power so do not ad any other t-former.
