Benefits of Bosch Inverter Ducted Split Systems

Say goodbye to Ontario's over-the-top winter heating bills. Now you can enjoy those subzero days in warm, cozy comfort without busting the bank.

The Bosch Inverter Ducted Split Family (IDS) Heat Pump is the climate control system that Toronto homeowners have been waiting for. Industry-leading efficiency and snazzy new features are just the beginning.

If you're looking for benefits, bells and whistles, this groundbreaking heat pump technology from Bosch delivers in spades.

Inverter-driven Ducted Technology

Vanguard technology regulates heating and cooling outputs. There is no continuous cycling on and off. Instead, the system has long and slow running times that precisely maintain the thermostat setting in real time.

Variable compression speeds eliminate wild temperature swings from one room to another. Instead of haphazard blasts of treated air, you'll get exactly the output you need to maintain the desired temperature.

Inverter-driven heat pumps are self-regulating. They keep indoor temperatures consistent from room to room. Cold spots, drafts and hot spots disappear, even when outdoor temperatures dive below freezing.

Custom Heat Pump Sizes to Match Your Needs

The Bosch Inverter Ducted Split Family Heat Pumps come in four sizes with capacities that range from two to five tons. There are three different systems to choose from:

15 SEER IDS Light System
Bosch Thermotechnology has developed the HVAC market's first-ever 15 SEER unitary inverter system. The IDS Light System delivers quality engineering at an affordable price if you don't need a higher SEER.

In Bosch's 15 SEER inverter system, the highly reliable BOVB18 outdoor unit is partnered with the new BVA15 PFC indoor air handler. This combination delivers all the benefits of an inverter system at an exceptionally affordable price.

18 SEER IDS Plus System
Previously known as the IDS 1.0, the IDS Plus has a SEER of 18. This system balances affordability, efficiency and comfort. It pairs the dependable BOVB18 outdoor unit with the unrivaled BVA20 two-stage x13 ECM-style indoor air handler for optimal heating and cooling performance.

20 SEER IDS Premium System
This ultra-efficient 20 SEER system combines the robust BOVA20 outdoor unit with the second to none BVA20 two-stage constant torque ECM air handler. With such high efficiency, the system qualifies for maximum energy rebates and delivers peak cost-savings.

Benefits of Heat Pump Inverter Technology

You'll Feel It, But You Won't Hear It
Bosch inverter heating and cooling systems can make even a ceiling fan sound noisy. This is one of the quietest air source heat pumps you can buy. 

Using silent blade technology, sound isolation mounts and condensing section placement, the system reduces outdoor noise levels to as low as 56 dBA. This is a feature that competitors can't match.

Heating and Cooling Comfort in a Jiffy
Older heat pumps can take what seems like forever to heat or cool an entire house. The boosted compressor speed of inverter systems permits a speedier and more efficient cooldown or warmup

No More Wasted Energy
Traditional HVAC systems waste a lot of energy cycling on and off. Instead of gobbling energy by cycling, inverter-driven heat pumps use only the energy they need. Thanks to this technology, inverter ducted split systems provide maximum comfort without the extreme cost.

Residential Limited Warranty
Bosch's full residential limited warranty provides parts protection for 10 years. The standard warranty covers all components of the heat pump when it was manufactured. All other heat pump components purchased from Bosch and installed in the field come with a one-year parts warranty.

Extended Shelf Life
Traditional heat pumps that constantly cycle on and off consume a tremendous amount of energy just to power up. Because they spend all day cycling, they're subjected to extreme and unnecessary wear and tear. Over time, the abuse takes a toll on the service life of the unit.

Inverter-driven systems cycle on and off infrequently, if at all. In essence, they're running all the time because it takes less energy to keep something going than it does to start something up.

Without the excessive stress caused by cycling on and off, inverter-equipped heat pumps are less likely to break down or to need repairs or premature replacement down the road.

Reduced Energy Spike Potential
Conventional heat pumps can generate energy surges while cycling on and off that can harm high-tech gear. An inverter-driven HVAC system ramps up slowly, steadily and smoothly to prevent energy spikes while achieving the desired temperature. 

That preserves the integrity of your system and prevents damage to the unit. It also reduces the amount of energy the system uses to maintain your preferred indoor climate.

Environmental Benefits
Heat pumps extract heat from outdoor air and use it to keep your home warm. They don't burn fossil fuel. Warmth in the air is a free and sustainable natural resource. 

As a company that makes energy efficiency their highest priority, Bosch's inverter-driven heat pumps qualify for maximum rebates from energy companies and local governments.

Cleaner Indoor Air and Proven Humidity Control
If you keep your HVAC filters clean, an inverter-driven heat pump will significantly improve indoor air quality while banishing stuffy and stale odors. 

Meanwhile, all those trips through the heat pump filter rid indoor air of toxins and contaminants like pollen, mites, microbes, dander and dust.

Longer and slower running times keep indoor humidity levels balanced. That, in turn, reduces the dehumidification load on your air conditioner.

Heating and Cooling in One Unit
Heat pumps are fitted with a reversing valve with which you can switch from heating to cooling. Instead of having multiple HVAC components to deal with, one system does it all. 

Bosch Thermotechnology Ductless Minisplit Heat Pump

Minisplit heat pumps do everything that ducted heat pumps do. In fact, they do more.

Exceptional Energy Efficiency
High-efficiency Bosch minisplits have SEER ratings up to 22. These systems can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 30 percent. 

Prevents Energy Losses Caused by Ductwork Leaks
Energy Star reports that the average U.S. household loses up to 20 percent of treated air through ductwork leaks and loose connections. Meanwhile, your energy costs escalate, and your HVAC system overworks to cover the shortages. 

Ductless heat pumps remove the costs associated with leaky ductwork, so energy is no longer wasted. Ductless systems are perfect for homes without ductwork or with damaged ducts that would prove costly to fix.

Benefits of Home Zoning
Minisplit and multi-split heat pumps are highly versatile. They can heat or cool a single room or the whole house. One robust outdoor unit can deliver treated air to five indoor units. 

Individual air handlers control temperatures in their respective zones. You can heat or cool only the rooms you're using and maintain different temperatures in other zones.

Using a remote sensor, indoor units can automatically adjust temperatures as people enter or exit a zone. The system is even equipped with a special turbo feature that speeds up output when you want extra warmth or cooler comfort in a hurry.

High-tech Air Filtration System
Bosch's innovative multi-part filtration system detoxifies circulating air by trapping dander, pollen, microbes, dust and mites. Water-wicking Bluefin technology keeps humidity levels low and prevents the growth of mold and mildew. 

A Breeze to Install
Unlike most HVAC systems, Bosch's minisplit heat pumps can be installed in a day or two. The process involves mounting indoor air handlers in each zone and connecting the indoor and outdoor units using plastic tubing. 

Climate 5000 Minisplit Heat Pump Single-Zone Systems are available in four capacities from 9,000 to 24,000 BTU/hr. Multi-zone systems are available in four capacities from 18,000 BTU/hr to 48,000 BTU/hr.
