Bosch Mini Splits

Bosch produces air conditioners for residential and commercial applications. This consists of ductless mini splits, and inverter ducted split air conditioners.

Bosch’s line of ductless mini splits are renowned for using German engineering with the very latest in cooling and energy efficiency technology.

Energy Star certification

EnergyStar is a joint program run by the US Environmental Protection Agency and  Department of Energy that promotes energy efficiency. It certifies products that are energy efficient. Mini splits with the EnergyStar label are certified to be up to 40% more efficient than conventional systems.

Many Bosch mini splits carry the EnergyStar certification. Some are even eligible for rebates worth up to $5,500.

Inverter technology

Inverters are devices that allow appliances to reduce their output based on demand. For mini splits, this enables the compressor to dynamically change its speed to meet the set temperature instead of operating full blast all the time.

Bosch’s line of mini splits are outfitted with inverter technology. This results in higher energy efficiency and longer lifespan.

High SEER ratings

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It measures how efficient the mini split is over a given cooling season. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the mini split system.

Bosch mini splits boast up to 25 SEER rating, making them extremely efficient compared to other mini split brands on the market.

Silent operation

Precision German engineering and inverter technology allows Bosch mini splits to have lower noise levels. Some mini split models are capable of as low as 20 dBA, quieter than a library. 

Better indoor air quality

Bosch mini splits use a multi-part air filter system that cleans air, reduces potential allergens and odors. The multi-part filter system refreshes the circulating air by reducing potential odors, allergens, viruses and bacteria. Additionally, the easy-to-clean system helps to trap dust, pollen, mites and other particles to provide clean, quality air.
