Water heating represents significant energy use and accounts for a high proportion of total energy consumption in residential section. Air source heat pump water heater (ASHPWH) has been recognized as a very promising technology with advantages of energy-saving, safe in use, low cost, etc. The current heat pump systems are subjected to inefficient operation all year around. A novel ASHPWH is proposed for wide temperature scale. It consists of four different operating modes. The mathematical model is established and integrated with refrigerant properties from REFPROP. Results show that the switch strategies of ambient temperature for optimum COP are distinguished. At outlet water temperature of 41 °C, the switch ambient temperature is -18 °C and 16.5 °C for Mode A, Mode B and Mode D. Its application in typical cities has superior performance to each individual cycle. In Guangzhou, the proposed system shows the highest improvement. The experimental study of Mode C and Mode D indicates that the later one has better COP at ambient temperature of -25 °C and -12 °C.
