Appliances

Bosch home appliances is part of BSH Home Appliances Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BSH Hausgeräte GmbH, based in Munich, Germany. As part of the largest manufacturer of home appliances in Europe, and one of the leading companies in the sector worldwide, Bosch has been selling high performance German-engineered appliances in the United States since 1991. Known nationwide for raising the standards in quietness, efficiency and design for appliances, Bosch frequently receives top ratings in leading consumer publications and received awards from ENERGY STAR for eight consecutive years, from 2007-2014. With U.S. headquarters in Irvine, Calif., the company also operates manufacturing facilities in La Follette, Tenn. and in New Bern, N.C., housing state-of-the-art factories for dishwashers, ranges, ovens and cooktops.

Sustainability has been part of our DNA since Robert Bosch founded the company more than 130 years ago. Bosch’s commitment to the environment – from green manufacturing to efficient appliance performance, and even recycling when the life cycle is over– helps distinguish Bosch as a brand that exceeds energy and water efficiency standards.

Bosch places an enormous emphasis on purposeful design, and designing appliances that simplify life for our consumer, no matter the size of their kitchen. In the U.S., the small space movement is quickly gaining momentum. While it may have started in Europe, it’s creating demand in the U.S. for premium, compact appliances that fit a smaller kitchen footprint. This can be attributed to lifestyle changes such as small apartments in big cities and empty nesters downsizing, as well as increased demand for guest suites, media rooms, secondary vacation homes and other ancillary spaces in the home. But, just because a space is small, doesn’t mean it has to feel that way. With small spaces, the focus should be on maximizing the space and making it as functional as possible. Bosch small space appliances provide the timeless, European design the brand is known for, in a compact package designed to meet these needs.

As an ENERGY STAR® partner since 2007, the brand has long been committed to water and energy efficiency. In fact, Bosch manufactures the most energy efficient dishwasher in the U.S., and offers ENERGY STAR® certified products in the following categories: compact laundry, dishwashers, refrigeration and ventilation.

In 2016, Bosch was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the 2016 ENERGY STAR® Emerging Technology Award for its 24-inch stainless steel and glass door refrigerators.

Products Used in Flex House:

High-efficiency Bosch Climate 5000 Ductless Minisplit Heat Pump Systems are ideal for residential heating and cooling up to 48,000 Btuh. Available for single-zone or multi-zone applications, these ultra-quiet, inverter-driven heat pump systems function across an extended operating range from minus 13 to 122 degrees F, with indoor sound levels as low as 20 dBA in “silent mode,” which is quieter than a whisper at a library. Installation requires only a three-inch-diameter or smaller opening to run the entire line set. No ductwork is required, making the system perfect for tight spaces or areas where technicians cannot install ductwork, helping to eliminate potentially messy renovation work. The Climate 5000 Minisplit Heat Pump Single-Zone Systems are available in four capacities ranging from 9,000 to 24,000 Btuh, in both 115/120V (up to 12,000 Btuh) and 208/230V power requirements. An electronic expansion valve works together with smart inverter technology (variable speed compressor) to achieve the highest efficiency of a SEER 22 rating.
