Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. Reveals New Cooling Solutions Lineup for Summer
Bosch Thermotechnology will add three new products to its air-conditioning portfolio this summer with the new Inverter Ducted Packaged (IDP) Unit as well as second-generation upgrades to the Inverter Ducted Split (IDS) 2.0 and Minisplit 2.0.
“In the summer of 2018, Bosch unveiled its new psychometric lab to measure the performance of air-conditioning units in multiple configurations, and this lab has helped us launch the IDP, IDS 2.0 and the Minisplit 2.0,” said Goncalo Costa, director of air conditioning regional business unit, North America at Bosch Thermotechnology. “We’ve focused heavily on augmenting our air-conditioning portfolio, and we’re excited to offer our customers both new innovations and upgraded products.”
The Bosch Inverter Ducted Packaged Unit air-source heat pump provides superior efficiency, with a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating of up to 19, and a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) of 8.5. With a fully modulating inverter drive that precisely matches the heating and cooling load, and a multispeed, electronically commutated motor (ECM) x13 blower for enhanced humidity control and quiet operation, the IDP is an ideal choice for residential and light commercial applications. The IDP’s 85- step compressor offers 25 to 110 percent capacity, with modulation in one percent increments. Additionally, the two-way design allows for horizontal and down-flow installations, ensuring air return and supply are convertible. The IDP is easy to install and compatible with most standard 24VAC heat pump thermostats.
The Bosch Inverter Ducted Split 2.0 is Bosch’s premium air-source heat pump. With a SEER rating of up to 20.5, this heat pump offers a full Energy Star-compliant product range. The accompanying air handler includes an ECM x13 blower with two-stage fan control for enhanced dehumidification, and an all-aluminum coil for superior corrosion resistance. With a HSPF rating of 10.5 and heating operation down to temperatures of four below zero, this heat pump yields highly efficient operation, even in cold-climate applications. The Bosch IDS 2.0 outdoor unit can integrate with Bosch’s 96 percent AFUE gas furnace and cased coils for an exceptionally efficient dual heating and cooling system.
The Bosch Minisplit 2.0 expands Bosch’s Minisplit lineup with the second generation of the Climate 5000. The Minisplit 2.0 various models offer wall-mounted, four-way cassette, or concealed ducted installation. The hyper heat system allows the unit to maintain its efficiency in temperatures up to minus 22 degrees. The optional wired wall thermostat works in all types of indoor environments, and the wired wall thermostat for the wall-mounted system includes the “Follow Me” feature, which enables the thermostat to detect the room temperature. The Bosch Minisplit 2.0 requires little to no ductwork and is easy to install, with a small footprint. With precise zone control and turbo mode that cools and heats faster than a traditional system, the Minisplit 2.0 provides total comfort for both residential and light commercial applications.
These products launch in the summer of 2019. More information will be available as each product is officially announced.
