Previously, Landfall custom home builder Mark Johnson Custom Homes introduced our readers to two series of Energy Star certified Bosch Appliances – the 800 Plus Series Dishwasher and Vision Washer and Dryer. Now we’d like to highlight the Evolution 800 Series Refrigerator. Complete with a door alarm to notify you if the door was accidentally left ajar, the Evolution has external temperature controls which allow you to make adjustments (such as changing the temperature, locking the icemaker, etc.) without having to open the door. This ensures the inside of your refrigerator maintains a constant temperature and keeps food fresher longer. And because it’s Energy Star Qualified you are guaranteed that it will minimize energy use and maximize efficiency, which will reduce energy bills and help protect the environment. Visit their website for more informaton on the Evolution and other energy-efficient appliances!

Brunswick County, NC home builder Mark Johnson Custom Homes is excited to share that Bosch Appliances has unveiled the Vision, an Energy Star qualified full-size front-load laundry line. Vision washers and dryers use advanced EcoSmart™ technology, a network of sensors and intelligent controls, to deliver the most efficient performance without compromising cleaning results. In Vision washers, EcoSmart continuously analyzes the wash cycle and automatically adjusts water level, temperature and suds level. EcoSmart’s water savings are amplified with ActiveWater™, a system that uses 70% less water per load than the industry average. In Vision dryers, EcoSmart senses remaining moisture throughout the cycle to lower the energy usage. Below are just some of the outstanding features from the Vision line and for more information visit, call 800.921.9622 to request a catalog or follow Bosch on Twitter at @BoschAppliances


  • The ActiveWater™ system multiplies the cleaning power of each gallon of water. Combined with advanced EcoSmart technology, Vision uses just 13 gallons of water per load while delivering the cleaning power of 400 gallons.
  • The dryer’s EcoSensor® measures the moisture level of the clothes and adjusts cycle length and heat level automatically for efficient and gentle drying.
  • The Bosch exclusive EcoAction® feature is available on all Vision washers and dryers. With just the simple push of a button, consumers can reduce energy use by up to 20% per wash load and 10% per dry cycle.

Cleaning Performance

  • The washer’s ActiveClean™ system adjusts the number of rinse cycles for custom cleaning results.
  • The exclusive Stain Removal option tackles all stain types in one convenient wash cycle.
  • New specialized wash cycles such as Baby Care and Allergy Rinse are ideal for family members with sensitive skin or detergent allergies.
  • The Vision Steam Dryer offers three steam cycles (Steam Touch-up, Steam Refresh and Steam Wrinkle Relax) to efficiently and quickly reduce wrinkles and remove odors from clothes – without a wash cycle.
  • The Bosch Vision ActiveDry™ system utilizes the moisture sensor and intelligent controls to deliver the exact level of dryness selected by the user.
  • The DynamicAir™ dryer technology provides the gentlest environment for drying your clothes by delivering a high volume of air at a moderate temperature.
  • Vision features the industry’s only one-piece stainless steel drum – a breakthrough that prevents corrosion, lowers friction, and in turn, reduces wear on clothes and fabrics.

Landfall custom home builder Mark Johnson Custom Homes would like to introduce our readers to the 800 Plus series from Bosch Appliances. The 800 Plus series uses 1.5 gallons of water per cycle—70 percent less than the average dishwasher—with energy and sound efficiencies of 180 kilowatt-hours per year and 40 decibels, respectively. Its triple-filtration system removes debris and small particles, and an improved sensor recognizes the quantity and type of dishes loaded, automatically adjusting water consumption levels to provide the best washing results.
