Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. recently installed a complete HVAC heating and cooling system, thermostats, and a hot-water system for the new net-zero-energy Bridge House in Los Angeles. 

The 4,500-square-foot home integrates into its surrounding natural environment and bridges 20 feet over a brook, giving it its moniker. In addition to the distinctive design, the home is net-zero energy and is intended to showcase innovative, eco-friendly building systems.

To help the house obtain net-zero-energy status, Bosch Thermotechnology installed two Therm 940 ES outdoor tankless water heaters for hot water; two Inverter Ducted Split (IDS) air-source heat pumps for heating and cooling; and two Bosch Connected Control thermostats to control the IDS units.

In addition to Bosch Thermotechnology, Dan Brunn Architecture sought technologies and products from other Bosch divisions, including Bosch Home Appliances, Bosch Automotive Service Solutions, and Bosch Security and Safety Systems.

“Having partnered with Dan Brunn Architecture on prior projects, Bosch was proud to provide a full line of residential systems for the Bridge House, including HVAC, home security, kitchen appliances and an electric vehicle charging station,” says Shilai Xie, manager of product management at Bosch Thermotechnology. “It’s an honor to contribute our energy-efficient solutions to such an innovative and sustainable project and help the Bridge House achieve its green building vision.”

Located in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, the cedar-clad, single-story Bridge House’s design is a nod to California’s mid-century modern architectural style, with a rectilinear shape accented by grand glass doors and windows. It was scheduled to be completed in January and now will serve as a venue for social and educational events.
