air-source heat pump water heater is a desirable device in the view of energy utilization efficiency. An experimental study has been carried out to determine the impact of ambient temperature and setting temperature on the seasonal performance of this device. On the basis of the experimental results, a new control strategy is also provided, which has been proved efficient by the means of economic analysis.
