Bosch Therm Tankless Product Number Changes

Recently Bosch has changed their naming strategy for the Bosch Therm line up of Tankless Water Heaters. Previously, the Bosch part numbers reflected the flow rate at a 45 degree F temperature rise; now the part numbers reflect the flow rate at a 35 degree F temperature rise.

So, for example, the legacy Bosch Pro 920ES is now the Bosch Therm  C 1210ES. This means that this heater can produce 9.2 GPM of hot water at a 45 degree F rise and 12.1 GPM at a 35 degree F rise.

This naming change was done, so it seems, to align Bosch with an emerging industry de facto standard of showing the flow rate at a 35 degree F temperature rise. In reality, showing the flow rate at a 45 degree F temperature rise made more sense as a 45 degree F temperature rise is more realistic average across the US. However, with other manufacturers advertising their heaters 35 degree F flow rate, it appeared that their tankless water heaters had a higher flow rate (which was of course not true).

So, now Bosch's published flow rates allow for easier comparisons to those of other manufacturer's heaters.

Bosch did make some upgrades to the new models, so actually the newer heaters have more capabilities than their older legacy heaters. More about those details in later blog entries...

Here is a brief listing of the name changes:
