10 years later, the air source heat pump water heater will replace the electric water heater
Social development so far, every household basically installed a water heater. And different families, have their own selection criteria, in the choice of equipment, but also has a very different ideas.
In addition to the first generation of gas water heater is hot design, the back of the electric water heaters, solar water heaters and air to water heaters are used water storage design. Because the same as the storage type water heater, so different types of water heaters also formed a competition between. Electric water heaters and air source heat pump water heaters, need to rely on electricity to heat, it is frequently put together to compare.
Electric water heaters are now in the market share is still high enough, far ahead of the air source heat pump water heater. After all, electric water heaters to enter the market earlier, years of accumulated mass base is not the air energy be achieved overnight. However, the original air source heat pump water heater is a latecomer, but it has a "come from behind" trend.
This year, the air source heat pump water heater market share in the rapid rise, around the use of air source heat pump water heater is more and more people. This is known for energy-saving equipment, all of a sudden in the big north and south swept up. Faced with such a situation, there are users put forward the idea: air source heat pump water heater in 10 years, whether it is possible to replace the large-scale electric water heater.
From the current application situation, the choice of air source heat pump water heater users, mostly fancy two aspects: First, air source heat pump water heater efficient heating, and second, air source heat pump water heater safety.
Air source heat pump water heater is through the absorption of air in the "free" heat to make hot water, this heating method, make full use of renewable energy air, heating efficiency than electric water heater several times higher. Electric water heater heating efficiency of about 95%, using a heat pump dedicated compressor air source heat pump water heater, heating efficiency can reach 400%, conventional conditions are about 300%. Heating efficiency is high, reflected in the reality is to reduce electricity costs. The data show that the use of air source heat pump water heater for one year, can save at least a few hundred RMB more than electric water heater. It is this energy-saving effect touched a lot of consumers.
Air source heat pump water heater heating process, the live part of the water is not in direct contact with the water, and generally not charged auxiliary heating, which from the root causes of the human body to reduce the risk of using water heaters to enhance the safety factor of hot water bath.
Energy saving + security, the two major advantages, many users think that the air source heat pump be replaced by electric water heater basis. However, taking into account the air source heat pump water heater, after all, still have to get heat from the air, once the face of -25 ℃ below the low temperature, the overall heating efficiency of the device will have different degrees of decline in the heating efficiency is not as good as electric water heater . Moreover, the electric water heater can be heated to the temperature is often higher than the air source heat pump water heaters, to meet the special needs, which are air source heat pump water heaters do not have the characteristics.
It can be seen, although both are using electric heating, there are similarities. But it is still far away to talk about each other. For our consumers, more than a water heater, a more choice.
