Bosch Thermotechnology has introduced a new awards program for professionals who install and specify the company’s heating and cooling products in the United States and Canada.

The Bosch Green Living Awards program will recognize and reward residential and light commercial installations that use Bosch boilers, water heaters, geothermal heat pumps or a combination of each judged noteworthy for overall design, execution, and energy efficiency.

The awards program will run until Dec. 15, 2013. A team of judges assembled by Bosch Thermotechnology will award four product category winners and one grand prize winner from entries received. Winners will receive cash, gift cards, prizes, and trophies. The grand prize winner and a guest will be invited to attend an awards luncheon in New York City during the 2014 AHR Expo. The grand prize winner’s customer will also receive a cash prize.

Modeled after a highly successful program in the United Kingdom since 2000 by Worcester Bosch, the North American Bosch Thermotechnology Green Living Awards contest aims to emphasize Bosch’s commitment to protecting the environment and encouraging energy efficient practices in HVAC.

 “The Green Living Awards, like its counterpart in the U.K., will grow over the years in both the level of entries received and in name recognition,” said Richard Soper, president for Thermotechnology North America, who was instrumental in developing and growing the U.K. program. “Recognizing and rewarding industry professionals who use our products and help make a contribution to preserving our earth’s finite resources is in everyone’s interest.”

As part of the Green Living Awards, Bosch has included an art, photography, and creative writing contest for children. Children in three ascending age groups can submit artwork, photography, essays, and poetry under the theme “How can we live a greener life?” and win prizes..
