Air source heating problems
Air source heating is more and more mentioned. Because air source heat pumps are environmentally friendly and energy-saving, many people say that air source heat pumps are very good. Is the air source heat pump 100% good? Leomon Technology takes everyone to learn about air source heating problems.
1. Environmental adaptability issues
The heat source of the air source heat pump is the air that we all need. As an energy-saving product, the degree of energy saving is closely related to the COP value and energy efficiency ratio. Since most of the air source heat pumps on the market today are designed with a normal operating temperature of 0-40°C, air-energy water heaters often perform well in the south, where the ambient temperature is relatively high.
In northern cities where the temperature in winter is only -10°C, it is difficult for air source heating to achieve the desired effect in the design. If the temperature is -20℃, the unit will not even start. Basically, it can only be heated by electricity in winter (large electric kettle, and it will automatically heat when the temperature is low).
2. The installation problem of air source heat pump
Household air source heat pumps often require a water tank to heat and store hot water. Taking a family of 3-5 people as an example, a water tank of 120L-150L is needed. Such a large-sized water tank is not easy to coordinate with the overall home, so consumers can only install the air source water heater on the balcony.
3. Consumers' awareness of air source heat pumps
Air source heat pump is a new thing in the domestic market, and consumers' awareness of it is still very low. Many people think that it is impossible to get three parts of heat with one part of electricity, and it is the same for other products related to the application of thermal recovery technology, although the penetration rate of heat pump air conditioners is already very high.
People's understanding is only limited to the fact that air conditioners are large power consumers, but they don't know that they are more energy-efficient than briquettes. Nowadays, because some large shopping malls do not have air source water heaters for sale, consumers' awareness of air source heat pumps is still very low.
4. The purchase cost is very high
One air source water heater can buy many gas water heaters. Although it is a bit energy-saving, this cost can be used to pay electricity or gas bills for seven or eight years.
