Negative Pressure on Bosch Gas Sealed Combustion Tankless Water Heaters

 All of the new and some of the older Bosch gas tankless water heaters are all sealed combustion units.  This means the unit is sealed in the combustion chamber and thus the unit will have a twin pipe system for the exhaust and intake air.  The sealed combustion creates a positive pressure and keeps any cold air from entering and causing damage to the heater.  The sealed combustion units are also sealed and require in most situations that the intake air be taken from outside the home so as to not be shortened by inadequate combustion air.  The Bosch sealed combustion units must "NEVER" be operated with the front cover off the unit as this will create a negative pressure and will allow cold air being drawn down the exhaust pipe and could cause major damage and freezing in some areas to the heat exchanger.

Below is an image of a Bosch sealed combustion unit being vented with a twin pipe system horizontally out the sidewall.  This would be the same for a vertical installation through the roof.  When terminating through the sidewall or through the roof of a home always remember to keep at least 3' apart between the intake air vent and the exhaust air vent so there will be no cross contamination.

These are the Bosch gas tankless water heaters with sealed combustion.  250SX/250SXO/635ES/635ESO/2400E/2400ES/2700ES/Evolution500/Integra500/940ES/C1210ES/C1210ESC/ProTL175/ProTL199/ProTLC175/ProTLC199/T9800SE 160/T9800SE 199/T9900SE 160/T9900SE 199/T9900iSE 199

Best Condensing Tankless Water Heater - Bosch vs the Competition

Every major tankless water heater manufacturer has a 199,000 BTU condensing tankless water heater. The reason: anything over 200,000 BTUs will not qualify for the coveted Energy Star label.

The entire tankless industry has moved from non-condensing to condensing tankless water heaters due to the high efficiencies and low cost for PVC or polypropylene venting. So, how do you pick the best condensing tankless water heater from such a crowded field?

Bosch has long been the industry leader in condensing tankless water heater technology. And right now is a very exciting time to purchase a Bosch Tankless Water Heater because of the current offerings that include water connections on either the top or the bottom of the water heater.

Competitors:
Navian offers a few condensing models and are high efficiency units but all have the water connections on the bottom making it a lot more difficult to replace a standard tank heater as the water connections are on the top of the tank.  Some of the Navian condensing models are the NPE-a and the NPE-S series.

Rinnai has a few high efficient condensing models also such as the RUCS series but also have the same bottom water connections making it more difficult to replace a standard tank heater.

Most installers will go with the Bosch Greentherm 9000 series for new installations because of the time saved with top water connections.

For further questions on the new Bosch Greentherm 9000 series units please call Global Protankless Supply at 866-289-4652
