Bosch Commercial and Industrial, the German-owned heating and hot water equipment manufacturer, entered the UK air conditioning market in January with the news that it has a new variable refrigerant flow (VRF) range.
The Bosch Climate 5000 VRF systems comes in three types, namely the SDCS series, its inverter heat pump range; the RDCI series, an all DC inverter heat recovery system; and the MDCI series, the company's mini VRF heat pump, which is suitable for small domestic, commercial and small retail properties.
Bosch is confident that its VRF range is efficient and easily controllable through its Bosch VRF Intelligent Manager (BVIM) solution.
Geoff Hobbs, Business Development Director at Bosch Commercial and Industrial said:
“Consultants, contractors, architects and specifiers within the building services industry are increasingly faced with the challenge of recommending and installing flexible heating and hot water systems with the ability to maximise efficiency. With this in mind, we’ve taken the decision to introduce a VRF system which offers maximum heating and cooling comfort efficiently, and on a large scale.”
However, the company has deep expertise in developing a strong partner network and using high profile marketing to grow its business. The new player in the air conditioning market will intensify the competition which will be good for end users.
