Electric heat pump technology designed for high-efficiency heating in temperatures down to five below zero was introduced by Bosch at CES today.

The IDS UItra is an air-to-heat pump designed for heating in cold climates.

The heating system will even work to 13 degrees below zero, according to Bosch.

Awareness of heat pumps for heating and cooling is extremely high but the units typically are used in the Southeast, which has milder winters, compared to the cooler regions, such as New England, according to Bosch research.

“Thanks to advances in cold climate technology, our heat-pump provides heating even in sub-zero temperatures,” said Alexander Wuthnow, president and CEO of the Bosch Home Comfort Group in North America.

Bosch said the U.S. Department of Energy confirmed that its cold climate heat pump meets all requirements of the Cold Climate Challenge sent to manufacturers. The challenge was aimed at advancing the technology to allow consumers to switch to cleaner energy systems.

“The conditions for electrifying homes in America are favorable, as already more than 17.7 million heat pumps are installed across the country and used for heating and cooling,” said Christian Fischer, deputy chairman of the Bosch board of management who is responsible for the company’s Energy and Building Technology and Consumer Goods business sectors. “Our goal is to promote a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and we are proud to present state-of-the-art technology at CES 2024 which can contribute to tackling global warming.”
