On commercial products, the letters CE mean that the manufacturer of importer affirms the good’s conformity with European health, safety and environmental protection standards.
To obtain the CE mark, manufacturers must attain ErP certification under the European Union’s ErP directive.
Why are ErP and CE certification important？
The ErP directive will eventually affect all products that have an environmental impact during their life. ErP comprises two directives, Ecodesign and Energy Labelling, that will help the EU achieve its 20-20-20 target to reduce energy use by 20 per cent and increase the share of renewable energies by 20 per cent by 2020.
CE certification is a passport for products to enter the European Union and European Free Trade Zone countries. Furthermore, it is a commitment of enterprise to consumers, increasing consumers’ trust in the products and decreasing the likelihood of their failure in the European market.

What are the advantages of R290 All-in-One Heat Pump Water Heater airExpert?
l R290 Refrigerant
In light of the goal of European carbon neutrality, Europe is phasing out products with a high GWP value. A forward-looking enterprise, PHNIX develops R290 All-in-One Heat Pump Water Heater-airExpert with a GWP as low as 3, making a contribution to the reduction of greenhouse effects. The R290 refrigerant applied to the heat pump is not only environmentally friendly, but also maintains the good working performance of heat pump
l High COP
With a high COP up to 3.0 under the condition of (EN16147)7/6°C, the heat pump can consume less energy and save energy bills for users in the long run.
l DC Fan Motor
The brush-less DC motor is quieter than a conventional AC motor, which means that users can have a better using experience.
