Bosch introduces ducted split heat pump system
Bosch Thermotechnology introduces the next generation of its premium air-source heat pump system – the Inverter Ducted Split (IDS) 2.0 system, offering a 20-plus seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) inverter drive that precisely matches the heating/cooling load for greater efficiency.
The full IDS 2.0 product range is ENERGY STAR compliant and provides whisper-quiet operation – as low as 56 decibels. The accompanying air handler includes a two-stage x13 electronically commutated motor (ECM) blower for enhanced humidity control and an all-aluminum coil for superior corrosion resistance.
With a heating seasonal performance rating (HSPF) of 10.5 and heating operation down to temperatures of four degrees below zero, this heat pump yields highly efficient operation, even in cold-climate applications.
“As we continue to expand our air-conditioning portfolio, we’re thinking about what’s important for both our customers and contractors,” says Katie Woodling, product manager at Bosch Thermotechnology. “The IDS 2.0 is a next-level product that has it all: greater efficiency and better performance for customers, and easier serviceability and simplified control board maintenance for contractors.’”
The inverter compressor offers 25% to 110% capacity with modulation in 1% increments. The unit’s compact footprint allows for easy installation and is compatible with most standard 24 VAC heat pump thermostats.
The Bosch IDS 2.0 outdoor unit can integrate with Bosch’s 96% AFUE gas furnace and cased coils for an exceptionally efficient dual heating and cooling system.
