Dec. 7, 2010: Bosch Opens California Solutions Center to Offer Training to HVAC Pros
“Geothermal and solar technologies are an essential component for sustainably addressing future residential and commercial energy needs. We are pleased to work with HVAC professionals and provide them hands-on training,” said Ervin Cash, president and CEO, Bosch Thermotechnology North America. “Not only will these professionals perform an excellent installation, they’ll often be very instrumental in consumer education. Our Solutions Centers are dedicated to providing the necessary practical and technical information to help the trade effectively drive the consumer adoption process.”
To comply with California’s strict water conservation codes, the center features a water reclamation system that will save up to 75,000 gallons of potable water per year.
“In Southern California where water conservation is critical, this is a huge accomplishment and we are pleased to contribute our support,” said Taylor Shaw, California Solutions Center manager and regional portfolio manager. “This closed-loop reclamation system includes a large storage unit, high-head pump and evaporative rooftop chillers that regulate temperatures for the center’s five tankless demo units used for training.”
Other features of the center include an 850-square-foot education classroom, a 1,200-square-foot solar thermal installation education center, and a 952-square-foot tankless water heater training and demonstration center.
The Irvine, Calif., location joins two other Bosch Solutions Centers operating in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Londonderry, N.H. - home to Bosch North America. For more information, visit www.boschthermotechnology.com.
