Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. Now Innovation Partner with DOE Zero Energy Ready Home

LONDONDERRY, N.H. –Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. will be participating in the Department of Energy Zero Energy Ready Home program. The DOE Zero Energy Ready Home (formerly DOE Challenge Home) represents a new level of home performance, with rigorous requirements that ensure outstanding levels of energy savings, comfort, health and durability. The DOE Zero Energy Ready Home is a compelling way to recognize builders for leadership in increasing energy efficiency, improving indoor air quality and making homes zero energy ready.

DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes are verified by a qualified third party and are at least 40-50 percent more energy efficient than a typical new home. This generally corresponds to a Home Energy Rating System Index Score in the low- to mid-50s, depending on the size of the home and region in which it is built. The Zero Energy Ready Home is so energy efficient, most or all of its annual energy consumption can be offset with renewable energy – it is the “home of the future” right now.

As a Zero Energy Ready Home Innovation Partner, Bosch Thermotechnology supplies sustainable HVAC solutions with high-quality Energy Star-recognized heating, air conditioning and water heating systems, including tankless water heaters, boilers and air-to-air and geothermal heat pump systems. For example, a Bosch geothermal solution combined with solar energy generation and high-efficiency appliances can deliver a zero energy home.
