Recently, a piece of news about the skyrocketing global natural gas prices hit the hot search list. According to a CCTV financial report, natural gas prices have become the commodity with the largest increase during the year: European natural gas prices have skyrocketed 10 times in 14 months, reaching a record level last week, and have now risen more than from the record low in May 2020. 1000%, while the price of liquefied natural gas sent to Asia has soared six times, close to the highest level in the same period in history. This may mean that the era of high natural gas prices has come.
As a harmful energy that emits greenhouse gases, natural gas is a transitional fuel to replace coal. For most of the past decade or so, due to the surge in natural gas supply, natural gas reserves for power generation and home heating are abundant. In recent years, as supply has slowed down and demand has surged, natural gas prices have skyrocketed. For ordinary consumers, the gas bills they pay will also increase. Especially for users who have installed gas wall-hung boilers, complaints about “heating cannot be burned” are increasing day by day.
Based on the current natural gas price, the average monthly heating cost for a room of 100 square meters is as high as two to three thousand yuan. After the price increase, the cost will be even higher, so that users can hardly afford the daily heating cost. With the rising cost of fuels, many residents are worrying about the heating life in the coming winter. Therefore, many people have begun to plan ahead and turn their attention to finding alternatives to natural gas. In the summary of many heating equipment, air energy heat pump products have obvious advantages in energy saving and environmental protection, and are regarded as the most ideal winter heating equipment at the moment.
Compared with gas-fired boiler heating, air-energy heat pumps, which are energy-saving, electricity-saving, clean and environmentally friendly, and have high safety have become the first choice for heating in multiple locations. Air energy heat pumps do not use coal, natural gas and other fuels when working, and only need a small amount of electric energy to drive the heat pump to produce a large amount of heat. The use of air energy heat pumps not only saves natural resources such as coal, reduces exhaust gas emissions, protects the atmospheric environment, prevents accidents such as fires, poisonings, and explosions, and most importantly saves electrical energy. According to the data obtained by Tongyi Air Energy, the leading brand in air energy, a “coal-to-electricity” resident in Tongzhou, Beijing uses Tongyi Air Energy heat pumps to heat their 90-square-meter building for one heating season (120 days) The power consumption is only 3737 degrees. According to the electricity price of 0.49 yuan/kWh in Beijing at that time, the heating cost of the user in that year was only about 1800 yuan.
In addition to the advantages of energy saving, environmental protection, and safety, the biggest advantage of air heat pumps is that it has a wide range of applications. It can not only heat households, but also provide heating services for schools, hotels, hotels, factories, office buildings, fitness centers, etc. , Is currently the most widely applicable heating equipment in the northern "coal-to-electricity" project.
