Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. Expands Furnace Offering with First-Ever Condensing Gas Unit
Bosch Thermotechnology introduces its first condensing furnace with the BGH96 Series. This Energy Star-rated furnace offers a two-stage gas valve that switches between high- and low-fire settings for added comfort and up to 96 percent AFUE heating efficiency, lowering homeowners’ energy bills.
The BGH96 Furnace can be integrated with Bosch’s Inverter Ducted Split (IDS) Heat Pump Outdoor Unit and Cased Coils for a highly efficient dual fuel heating and cooling system — the ideal solution to maximize homeowner comfort and unit efficiency. In the summer, the Bosch IDS cools and dehumidifies the home, while in colder months, the system senses when it’s more economical for the IDS heat pump to shut off, allowing the BGH96 gas furnace to take over. The BGH96 is also compatible with the Bosch Connected Control BCC100 Thermostat, which simplifies controls for the homeowner.
The unit’s low-profile cabinet height and three-way multipurpose design make it easy to replace existing furnaces, creating flexibility in multiple types of installations. Its fully insulated, anti-rust cabinet minimizes indoor noise levels, while the multi-speed ECM motors offer quiet and efficient operation.
“Furnace selection varies depending on existing equipment, the climate and a home’s load,” said Goncalo Costa, director of air conditioning at Bosch Thermotechnology. “Bosch understands the importance of options, and the release of its 96 percent AFUE condensing furnace fulfills the majority of homeowners’ requirements.”
With the introduction of the BGH96 furnace, the Bosch dual fuel system is now rated up to 18 SEER, 12.5 EER and 9.5 HSPF, allowing some combinations to qualify for Energy Star. The furnace offers numerous installation conveniences for contractors, and all units come standard with a natural gas-to-LP conversion kit, making the unit field configurable.
