Energy Efficient Appliances

Technologies that improve not only
our daily life, but our future as well.

Green Technology Inside

Green is in the Bosch DNA.

Green is in the Bosch DNA, as inseparable from our company as efficient performance. So when you see "Green Technology Inside," we're saying that we've integrated innovative technology into our products to make them even more efficient—without sacrificing performance. From dishwashers that can turn two gallons of water into the cleaning power of 1,300, or energy-saving settings on our dryers, to dozens more features, what you might think of as green, we've always thought of as smart technology.

The Numbers
Behind Green
Technology Inside

Look for this card on select Bosch communications to see how much less you'll use with our appliances. It shows that there are real results behind our claims - and shows you what a little innovation can save.

We are committed to sustainability.

Bosch has been "green" long before Al Gore made it fashionable. For forty years, we've strived to set the standards in innovation using intelligent technology for higher performance and greater user convenience. Being successful in these areas means that many of our home appliances actually exceed ENERGY STAR® qualifications and are among the most energy efficient in the world. But our commitment to the environment doesn't stop there. We apply the same standards of eco-consciousness to our production methods and support those leading the way in the fields of green construction and design. From concept to crate and beyond - we are committed to sustainability throughout the product's life cycle.

Reducing Water Usage

As a result of development and innovation, we've been able to cut our appliance water consumption by more than half since the 1990s. During the production process, our factories have significantly reduced the use of fresh water from the public supply while overall water requirements in our factories have fallen every year on record.


2013 ENERGY STAR® Award for Sustained Excellence

Efficient in resources. Sustainable in production. Green technology inside. Maybe that's why the past four years, Bosch has proudly accepted the designation "ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year". Bosch Home Appliances is proud to offer our customers products that have earned the government's ENERGY STAR® label.

Green Tips

  • Dishwashers
  • Cooking
  • Refrigeration
  • Washers
  • Dryers
  • Scrape your plates—Rinsing dishes can waste up to 20 gallons of water before the dishes are even loaded, and Bosch dishwashers, used in combination with today’s detergents, are designed to do the cleaning, so you don’t have to.
  • If your dirty dishes are going to sit overnight, use your dishwasher’s rinse option. It uses a fraction of the water needed to rinse by hand.
  • Fill your dishwasher to capacity to get the most out of the energy and water you’re using.
  • If you don’t have a full load, Bosch’s Half Load Option is perfect for small, lightly soiled loads that use half or less of the dishwasher’s capacity. You can load in the top rack, bottom rack, or half and half, and it reduces energy consumption by about 30%.
  • It’s best to use your dishwasher at night. You’ll save money by running your dishwasher after 7 p.m., during off-peak hours.
  • Using the EcoAction® feature on Bosch dishwashers runs the cycle at a slightly lower temperature and extends the wash cycle for 10 to 15 minutes to ensure the same great performance, but saves up to an additional 25% of energy usage.
  • Clean dishwasher drains and filters regularly to ensure efficient operation. The easier it is for water to flow through the dishwasher, the more efficiently it will operate.
  • Use a dishwasher with a stainless steel interior, a filtration system, and condensation drying, features that add significantly to overall energy and water efficiency.
  • Use a dishwasher with a flow-through water heater that raises water temperature inside the dishwasher.

If you're looking for energy efficient appliances, look no further than Bosch. Not only are our eco-friendly appliances green, our manufacturing process has been saving water and energy year after year. Join us in taking the pledge to live more energy efficient and environmentally friendly lifestyles.
