Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. Releases Inverted Ducted Packaged System
Bosch Thermotechnology adds to its heating and cooling product portfolio with the announcement of its first-ever Inverter Ducted Packaged (IDP) air-source heat pump system, which offers peak efficiency and the latest compressor technology packaged in a single unit.
The new system’s design has a foundation in Bosch’s Inverter Ducted Split air-source heat pump system, which was redesigned to have all components located in one cabinet: the ideal packaged system for easy residential and light commercial installations.
The IDP features a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating of 19, an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 12.5, and a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) of 10. The convenient two-way design allows for both horizontal and down flow installations, making installation easy, as does the system’s compatibility with most standard 24 VAC heat pump thermostats.
The IDP’s two-stage electronically commutated motor (ECM) x13 blower provides enhanced dehumidification and quiet operation, and the fully modulating inverter drive precisely matches the heating or cooling load for maximum efficiency. The IDP’s inverter compressor offers 25 to 110 percent capacity, with modulation in 1 percent increments.
“The release of the Inverter Ducted Packaged system combines Bosch’s top air-source heat pump features with a convenient single cabinet design for multiple installation options,” said Katie Woodling, product manager at Bosch Thermotechnology. “Bosch is excited to continue expanding its air-conditioning product lineup, and making advancements that fit our customers’ needs.”
The IDP meets the requirements for ENERGY STAR and will comply with the Department of Energy consumer central air conditioner and heat pump direct final rule that will become effective Jan. 1, 2023.
