Bosch Thermotechnology North America, a manufacturer of water source and geothermal heat pumps, solar thermal systems, tankless water heaters and condensing boilers for residential and commercial applications, announces that the Bosch TA Series geothermal heat pump has been awarded ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient Designation for 2011 — the only complete geothermal line in the industry to meet such criteria.

The Bosch TA Series offers flexible installation applications including vertical, horizontal, counter flow and split system configurations from two to six tons.

The unit's precision engineering and quality cabinet construction require less energy consumption while providing precise heating and cooling for many applications.

The TA Series is equipped with a proprietary heavy-gauge steel base pan that “floats” on a unique high density, visco-elastic material; this ensures minimum operational noise and peace of mind for the homeowner. All Bosch geothermal heat pumps are manufactured in ISO 9001:2008-certified facilities to provide consistent quality in every unit sold.

“Bosch invests millions of dollars annually into research and development to ensure that our dealers, installers and ultimately consumers have access to the highest quality and energy efficient products,” Bosch thermotechnology president Ervin Cash said. “Bosch products are innovatively designed, highly efficient and reliable — meaning easier installations, fewer callbacks and more satisfied customers.”
