The Bosch Greentherm line offers a fully modulating gas value to make it one of the most energy efficient tankless water heaters on the market. Also this line has a new venting system which requires only one 5” wall penetration. Also, if you are running multiple tankless water heaters, they can be vented on one common vent, limiting the cost of installing multiple units.

One of the more interesting things that Bosch offer offers is their Patented Hydro-power ignition. This tankless model does not need to be connected to electricity. Also there is no standing pilot. A small turbine uses the energy from the flowing water to ignite the burner.

Bosch also has units which can be installed out doors. Some of these units will need a cold weather kit. Finally, worth noting is the electric water heaters line that Bosch also offers. They have 2 whole house options and a mini tank point of use option.
