Bosch Appliances is showcasing its most advanced lineup of kitchen and laundry appliances that offer complete Eco solutions, at the upcoming 2008 International Builders' Show.
Bosch introduces its new 24-in compact stackable Axxis Laundry that offers the largest capacity in its class at 3.4 cubic feet, accommodating up to 14 pair of jeans. As a result, this powerhouse in an efficient package is perfect for high rises or homes looking to save much-needed space as well as energy, water, and money. When combined with the Axxis Condensation Dryer, which does not require any ducting or venting, Bosch 24-in laundry becomes a solution for any type of multi-family builder development or consumer application. In addition, the Axxis Laundry system features a structured drum with steep edges to ensure that the most heavy-duty jobs are handled efficiently. Paired with the new curved and asymmetric agitator paddles in the washer, clothes are treated gently as the water cascades down like rain.
Bosch's 27-in depth front-loading Nexxt Washers also make it easier than ever to achieve maximum energy savings. Simply push the green-colored "e" button to take advantage of the advanced EcoAction option, on select 500plus and 800 Series models, which decreases the temperature and amount of energy used during the wash cycle by up to 20% – without affecting cleaning results. Also, Nexxt Dryersconserve energy with its EcoSensor feature, which uses less energy to dry clothes than conventional dryers by adjusting the temperature based on the moisture level in the clothes.
Bosch's Evolution and Integra dishwashers feature the quietest and most energy efficient models in the country: the Evolution SHE98 and Integra SHX98. Both models exceed the minimum federal energy standard by 147% with a yearly usage of only 190 kWh – approximately the same amount of energy as a dishwasher half their size. The Evolution and Integra lineups also offer a variety of convenience and efficiency options clearly structured into three classes – the 300, 500, and 800 Series – making it easy for consumers to choose the model best suited for their lifestyle.
Beyond manufacturing high-efficiency products, Bosch has established key partnerships with other leaders in the green building movement, such as the U.S. Green Building Council/LEED for Homes, National Association of Home Builders, many other national and local environmental organizations, and sustainable building developments. Bosch is the proud recipient of both the prestigious 2007 Excellence in Energy Star Promotion Award and 2007 Annual Flex Your Power Award. Additionally, the brand's online Green Resource Center, a microsite developed to help consumers and builders calculate their immediate savings by using its products, is being expanded to provide even more information and tools for its users.
