6 Water Heater Sizing & Specifi cations
This section describes the water heaters available from Bosch
Thermotechnology Corporation and provides a general overview to
the specifi cations of that particular model. More detailed
information is contained in the installation manuals. Download

6.1 Sizing tankless water heaters

Defi nitions
Major applications (2 GPM or more): Washing machine, bath tub,
shower nozzle
Minor applications(2 GPM or less): Low fl ow shower head, bath-
room sink, kitchen sink
Rule of thumb sizing
The tables below provide a general rule of thumb when sizing for
most residential applications. For commercial applications or for a
more detailed sizing method, use the Sizing by Chart instructions
below in
conjunction with the charts on the next page.

Sizing by Chart
Measure the fl ow rates at each fi xture that will be used
simultaneously and add them together. If only one application will
be used at a time measure each fi xture and use the maximum fl ow
.
rate observed
Using a known volume container, record several fi ll times. Per-
form the calculation below to determine the fl ow rate (a one
gallon fi ll time of 30 seconds is 2.0 gallons per minute (GPM):
Volume (gallons)
Flow rate (GPM) =
Fill time (sec)
Using a thermometer, measure the incoming water temperature.
For reference, see average ground water temperature map. Sub-
tract this temperature from the desired hot water temperature to
get the degree rise. If the desired hot water temperature is 120F
and incoming temperature is 55F, the desired degree rise is 65F.

EXAMPLE:
Required fl ow rate of 2.0 GPM at a 65˚F rise.
Refer to the graphs on the following page.
Since the demand is above the 330 PN capacity, this application
would require a 520 HN/PN gas tankless water heater.
