Date: 2021-02-26 00:00:00 Hits: 64

Simply speaking, an air source heat pump water heater absorbs the heat in the air and transfer it to heat up the water with efficiency more than 4 times higher than an electric water heater, which is even more energy saving than solar water heater. At present, air source heat pump water heater is comparatively a more energy saving and environmental water heating devices in the world. Using the inverse Carnot principle, the air source heat pump water heater absorbs a large amount of low temperature heat source in the air, converts it into high temperature heat source through compressor, by transferring the heat to the cold water and heat up the cold water, which quickly makes the air source heat pump water heater stands out from the lead among various water heating solutions in the market.

How does it work?

As we know, when we turn on the AC for house cooling, the wind from the indoor unit of the AC is cold while that from the outdoor unit is warm, which is completely opposite to that when AC is running for house heating. The working principle of an air source heat pump water heater is the same as that of an AC running for house heating. Using compressor and refrigerant, the heat produced by electricity and contained in the air is transferred to the water to achieve the purpose of water heating.

Most people may only know that an air source heat pump water heater is new in the market and advanced, but barely know its difference between normal water heaters. Here, we will take PHNIX air source heat pump water heater as an example and introduce how it is outstanding in the aspect of energy saving, efficiency, service life and ways of operation.

 

Advantages

Lower Energy Consumption

PHNIX air source heat pump water heater converts the low temperature heat source in the air into high temperature heat source through compressor. The whole process does not consume any gas fuel, and can even maximizes the savings for users. The energy consumption of an air source heat pump water heater is 1/4 of an electric water heater and 1/3 of that of a gas water heater.


Longer Service Life

Generally, the service life of an electric water heater is about 8 years, and 6 years of a gas water heater. After long time running, component aging, scale accumulation and other safety issues will appear. By contrast, the service life of PHNIX air source heat pump water heater can perform stably for up to 15 years, which is a lot longer than normal water heaters.

 

Higher Efficiency

The efficiency of the air source heat pump water heater is as high as 300%-500%, which is not only 4 to 5 times higher than that of the normal water heaters, but also has a low heating cost. Compared with the other source water heaters, PHNIX air source heat pump water heater can save the users by up to 70% to 80% of energy per month.

 

More Stable Hot Water Supply

As to the performance of 24h constant hot water supply, PHNIX air source heat pump water heater is also excellent. It can continuously produce hot water at 45℃-55℃, which makes it a perfect choice for domestic hot water, hotel hot water and other sceneries with constant hot water demand.

 

Full Inverter Technology Helps Save You More

Moreover, PHNIX has launched a new full inverter air source heat pump water heater to the market, which can even bring more savings to users. With PHNIX exclusive full inverter technology, the unit can intelligently figure out the most

suitable running frequency according to the real-time ambient temperature and water temperature, so as to heat the water to the set-up temperature in a short time and maintain ideal energy efficiency. Compare to the ON/OFF heaters, the inverter heater can save more than 50% power in the daily running.

Micro-channel Heat Coil For Higher COP

Micro-channel heat coil greatly enlarges the acailable contact surface between inner water tank and heat coil thus enhance the performance of heat pump water heater. The COP can achieve 3.2 based on EN 16147.

 

So an air source heat pump water heater is low in energy consumption, high in efficiency, fast in water heating, safe in operation, and eco-friendly to the earth and make it become the most popular water heating solution currently in the market.
