Why choose a Bosch on demand water heater?
Unlike conventional water heaters that keep heating water 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, even when there’s no demand, Bosch tankless water heaters only heat water when there’s a demand for hot water – for example when the hot water tap is turned on in the shower or in the kitchen. This makes them the most energy efficient appliances that you can rely on to provide you with endless hot water, while keeping your energy bill low.
Bosch on demand water heaters are very energy-efficient. They can save you up 40% of your energy costs. That’s almost half your utility bill. The downside, however, is the hefty upfront investment.

Bosch Tankless Water Heaters Reviews
The Bosch Greentherm model C 950 ES water heater is a high-efficiency, fully-condensing appliance. It has an Energy Factor of 0.95. And it’s equipped with an automated and fully modulating bypass for unsurpassed domestic home water temperature stability. All Greentherm models including Bosch C 950 ES NG, use condensing technology which makes for lower consumptions, high performance, and low emission of toxic pollutants to the environment.

Bosch C 950 ES NG is rated for 9.2 GPM at 35°F, and 6 GPM at 55°F,thereby, it’s capable of fulfilling the needs for hot water of a relatively large family living in a medium sized home with multiple showers. It has a temperature range from 100-140°F.
