Speaking of the "high price" of air energy water heaters, that is a thing of the past. With the improvement of social productivity and the advancement of heat pump technology, the price of air energy water heaters has dropped a lot, and a high-end electric heater on the market costs about 3,500 yuan. From this point of view, electric water heaters hardly account for "cheap" in price.
However, the energy saving of electric heaters is far less than that of air energy water heaters. To produce the same amount of hot water, the energy consumption cost of the air energy water heater is only 1/4 of the electric water heater. For each 1L of hot water produced (calculated at a temperature of 30°C), the electric water heater costs about 1.5-1.6 cents, while the air energy water heater only needs About 0.3 cents. In one year, the use of air energy water heaters can save hundreds of dollars in energy saving only. In addition, 8 years of electric water heaters are considered over-age, while ordinary air energy water heaters can be used for more than 15 years. The money saved by energy saving alone can buy another air energy water heater. Therefore, in the long run, using an air energy water heater is not expensive to buy, and it is also affordable to use.
However, the recent "EU-China Heat Pump Water Heater Challenge Program" conducted a survey report on the water heater market in 8 first-tier cities including Nanning, Kunming, Chengdu, Chongqing, Changsha, Wuhan, Nanchang and Hefei, which showed that "it is not expensive to buy, but it is also affordable" The highest utilization rate of air energy water heaters is 2.6%, while the highest utilization rate of electric water heaters, which consume electricity and is not very cheap, is 13.3%. Such a result is puzzling. What is the reason that hinders the development of air energy?
A further investigation of the "EU•China Heat Pump Water Heater Challenge Plan" found that nearly 40% of citizens believed that air-energy water heaters were too bulky to be wall-mounted, and installation was a problem, so they did not purchase them. Heat pump veterans said that the current large size has become the biggest bottleneck hindering the development of the heat pump industry. Due to their large size, air-to-water heaters are a pain to install in small bathroom households. Although the electric water heater consumes electricity, it is small in size and can be wall mounted, which can greatly meet the actual needs of the city.
Just when the heat pump industry is stagnant due to its large size, in December this year, Guangdong New Energy Technology Development Co., Ltd., the No. 1 professional heat pump brand company, reported good news, two "Jingzhi Space" and "Jingzhi Yuquan". The small-volume real wall-mounted air-energy water heater was born, ending the era when the air-energy volume was too large to be wall-mounted.
It is reported that the volume of Nuentai's "Jingzhi·Space" and "Jingzhi·Yuquan" is only 1/3 of that of ordinary air energy water heaters, which can be wall-mounted, but incorporates the heat pump revolutionary technology 3X thermal capacity expansion technology, which reduces the volume and energy Without reduction, the continuous water output can be up to 3 times without electric auxiliary.
Heat pump experts pointed out that if the Nuentai brand ushered in the era of "real wall-mounted" air energy, it would be the "end" for electric water heaters. Once the air energy water heater solves the installation problem of being too large to be mounted on the wall, with its advantages of high efficiency and energy saving, it will surely be popular in big cities and seize at least 50% of the market share of high-end electric water heaters.
