The SV Model is a cost-effective single stage water source heat pump designed for commercial retrofit and new construction applications.
The SV unit cabinetry is constructed using heavy-gauge, G90 galvanized steel. This steel provides superior corrosion protection for units located indoors.
All interior surfaces are lined with 1/2” thick, 1.5 lb./cu.ft. dual density, Micromat insulation for thermal insulation and acoustical attenuation. This insulation is non-combustible, non-hydroscopic and does not support fungal growth. Insulation meets NFPA 90A and 90B for fire protection and is certified to meet the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Standard for Low Emitting Products.
The cabinet insulation also helps with noise reduction.
Noise reduction is a critical consideration of the unit design. All SV units have a unique floating base compressor that is mounted on a heavy steel plate which rests on a high density rubber pad on the base of the unit. In addition, compressors are mounted on rubber grommets. This double isolation, unique to Bosch, is standard in all SV series units preventing vibration and noise transmission from the compressor to the unit structure resulting in exceptionally quiet operation.
For additional sound attenuation, factory installed closed cell foam insulation provides whisper-quiet operation and improved IAQ. A field installed optional compressor blanket is also available on unit sizes 024 and above.
All units are designed to be serviced from the front of the unit. Schrader valves for high and low pressure gauges and the electrical box components are easily accessible for diagnosing and servicing the unit.
