Bosch Thermotechnology has introduced its first condensing furnace with the BGH96 Series. This company says the Energy Star-rated furnace offers a two-stage gas valve that switches between high- and low-fire settings for a 96 percent AFUE heating efficiency.
The BGH96 Furnace can be integrated with Bosch’s Inverter Ducted Split (IDS) Heat Pump Outdoor Unit and Cased Coils for a dual fuel heating and cooling system. 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.
The unit features a low-profile cabinet height and a three-way multipoise design. It is also fully insulated, has anti-rust cabinet to minimize indoor noise levels, and a multi-speed ECM motor.
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 EnergyStar.
