Bosch Now Offers Complete Residential System with the Addition of New Furnace
Watertown, Mass. – Bosch Thermotechnology introduces its first-ever non-condensing gas furnace, rounding out the company’s product portfolio with a complete residential system for heating and cooling. The Bosch 80% AFUE Gas Furnace, BGS80 Series offers a compact size and four-way multipoise design, making it an ideal replacement for aging non-condensing furnaces.
With a cabinet height of 33.75 inches and a multipoise design, the Bosch furnace can fit into tight places, including basements, attics and crawl spaces, allowing for easy integration into homes. The unit’s control board is equipped with LED Fault Codes, which display common errors as combinations of LED “flashes,” making it easy for contractors to quickly diagnose, troubleshoot and service units.
“Bosch continuously seeks ways to enhance our product portfolio,” said Goncalo Costa, director of air conditioning regional business unit, North America at Bosch Thermotechnology. “Our customers have been asking for Bosch to design a non-condensing gas furnace for their homes, and contractors wanted to be able to offer them one. This new offering fills those gaps, and represents another step in Bosch’s product portfolio journey.”
The furnace offers numerous installation conveniences for contractors. All units come standard with a natural gas-to-LP conversion kit, making the unit field configurable. The design features a left- or right-hand connection for gas and electric service, and the furnace comes equipped with a removable bottom closure panel for bottom return applications and knockout holes to aid in left/right return applications.
Consumer benefits include lower energy bills, as the furnace converts up to 80 percent of the fuel purchased to heat a home, and peace of mind, with a 20-year limited warranty on the heat exchanger and a 5-year* limited warranty on parts. Pairing the furnace with Bosch IDS Outdoor Units** and Cased Coils** allows the heating and cooling system to switch between fuel sources, keeping homeowners comfortable in any temperature and saving money.
*10-year limited parts warranty, if product is registered within 60 days of installation, see boschheatingandcooling.com for full limited warranty details.
