Recently, the third China-saving and low-carbon development forum have come to an end at the Beijing International Convention Center. At the meeting, the vice chairman of the China Heat Pump Industry Alliance, as well as the Tongyi air Chairman Tang Bikui has made a speech, fully affirmed the positive significance of the national energy-saving products farmer-friendly policy on the development of the heat pump industry, and put forward the point of view that China’s water heater energy efficiency standards should refer to the European standard, appeal to develop water heater energy efficiency assessment standards and improve the water heater energy efficiency evaluation system as soon as possible, available a comparable, scientific evaluation of energy saving to air to water heaters. The speech sparked the participants widespread concern and strong resonance.
In recent years, like Commercial or industrial use, and similar uses of heat pump water heater, Heat pump water heater for household and similar purposes product standards promulgated one after another, have unified and standardized to heat pump water heater and water heater terminology and definitions, types and basic parameters, requirements, test methods, inspection rules, signs, packaging, transport and storage. However, in the majority critical “energy-saving” performance, air to the water heater has not embodied in the standards of energy efficiency.
At present, the industry and the state of air to water heater energy saving performance has been recognized. With the specifications and requirements of the national industry, the energy efficiency standards has become the urgent requirements of the industry, under this industry demands, the whole industry should form a joint force to develop a water heater energy efficiency assessment standards and improve the water heater energy efficiency evaluation system as soon as possible. If to determine the level of energy efficiency of the air to the water heater as A level or B level, as a result, compared with the equivalent grade of other water heater, air to energy efficiency can be described as second to none.
European Union has develop a comprehensive energy efficiency evaluation system, because dose not meet the energy efficiency system developed standard, the high energy consumption of electric water heaters was facing the fate of being eliminated. If the water heater industry in China treated as a reference, then China air to water heater energy efficiency standards is imperative.
It is understood that, at present, including a number of air energy companies such as Midea, Gree, Tongyi, Widely Outes, Niuen Tai, TSC, have been involved in the air to the water heater energy efficiency level of the development of standards work.
