PHNIX Launched A New Inverter All-in-one Air Source Heat Pump Water Heater Using Propane (R290) Refrigerant


GUANGZHOU, China, Sept. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — In the journey towards decarbonizing, reducing carbon footprint in our homes which count for a large percentage of greenhouse gas emission, are recognized as an effective measure. As a better alternative to some heavy emission water heating sources, there is no doubt that heat pumps are set to become a smash-hit in the market. As the market never stop chasing after cleaner energy, PHNIX introduced a different refrigerant-airExpert inverter R290 all-in-one heat pump water heater to the market to deliver comfortable hot water in people’s homes whilst minimizing their carbon footprint.

As commonly known as an eco-friendly refrigerant with much lower carbon footprint, R290 refrigerant has a GWP of 3, while R32 = 677 and R410A= 2088, which would contribute greatly to a greener planet and help accelerate the adoption of heat pumps in residential buildings, thereby cutting use of polluted energy for heating. Furthermore, with R290 refrigerant, the COP can be further improved to 3.0, creating more savings for users.

“By promoting R290 heat pump water heater in household application, it is helpfully protected from the reduced availability of HFC refrigerants. Moreover, this new unit with natural refrigerant R290 use less volume per kW, allowing them to achieve more efficient and greater results than counterparts.” Said Edward Zheng, sales director in charge of residential heat pump water heater division.
