Consumers: Air-conditioning prices have suddenly risen by about a thousand yuan?

Every time the peak season of consumption, the price of air conditioners frequently affects the sensitive nerves of consumers. Whether it is bullish or falling is quite a bit confusing. However, compared with the traditional off-season after the Spring Festival, some consumers have clearly felt that "the atmosphere is not right" after the May Day Golden Week.

A few days ago, the consumer, Miss Wei, called the newspaper and complained that she went to a chain store last weekend to buy three air conditioners, but found that the price of air conditioners this year was much more expensive than before the "Eleventh" holiday last year. "At that time, the whole house air conditioner was only seven or eight thousand yuan, but now it is tens of thousands of yuan. The same type of air conditioner was only more than 2,000 yuan when it was engaged in activities last year, but now it is about 1,000 yuan higher."

Reporters randomly interviewed consumers who purchased machines on the spot and found that nearly 60% to 70% of the staff expressed that they felt that the price of air conditioners "had risen a lot".

Respond

Chain stores: domestic brands have risen by 10%

In fact, regarding the price trend of air conditioners, the nationwide home appliance chain issued a white paper on air conditioners as early as this year, but the views are completely different. Suning believes that due to the rapid increase in raw material prices and labor costs in the new year, the support for the Huimin project will be weakened. In addition, the management and punishment of home appliances to the countryside and trade-in will be significantly strengthened. The air-conditioning industry under multiple pressures " The price increase is the general trend, but the market performance in fixed frequency air conditioners and inverter air conditioners is not the same. Gome said that the price of air conditioners is unlikely to increase, and manufacturers are not afraid to easily leverage price levers.

Although several major home appliance chains have previously stated that they will stabilize air-conditioning prices by means of large-scale centralized procurement and special machine sales, they currently do not seem to have effectively prevented the price of air-conditioning from rising. In an interview with a reporter, a person in charge of a related department of a home appliance chain frankly revealed that all air-conditioning products have adjusted their prices before May 1 this year, especially for some domestic air-conditioning, the average price increase has exceeded 10%. Although the rest of the chains did not make a clear response, their related sales staff also confirmed to reporters that "the price of air conditioners has indeed increased."

Store madly set off a hot storm in the city

The price of air conditioners was suddenly hit by air strikes, and all major home appliance chains had to set off a hot storm in the city, continue to continue the preferential efforts during the "May Day", in order to "save the field".

Fashion appliances

It is reported that local home appliance chain fashion appliances will officially start air conditioning from this week, and will combine multiple brands to allow consumers to enjoy May Day discounts. During this period, they purchase Zhigo air conditioners to send practical gifts such as electric pressure cookers, rice cookers and multi-function pots. Mitsubishi Electric air conditioner plus a variety of cool small household appliances such as electric hair dryer, floor fan or desk fan, and a special model air conditioner of the pageant will be shipped with a beautiful dehumidifier of 2399 yuan.

Through direct sales, cashback, and gift-giving, the promotion was concentrated, during which the average drop in air conditioning was about 10%.

Suning Dongguan

Suning Dongguan also said that it will fully extend May 1 promotion from now on, focusing on the summer sales of color TVs, air conditioners, ice washing, two-season merchandise, etc., adding special and timely supply sources in time, and increasing the gift-giving efforts, so that The city's heavy volume "treat" consumers in need.

Price prediction

Fixed-frequency air conditioning may continue to be bullish

After undergoing this price adjustment, will the value of air conditioners continue to rise and rise, especially the fixed frequency air conditioners that are at the cusp of the storm?

Chen Guanquan, senior director of fashion electrical media, said that the air conditioner market will usher in the annual peak season after May 1st, and it is estimated that the price will not rise again. "Unless there are unexpected factors, the overall price adjustment is unlikely."

Dongguan Suning also analyzed that the overall energy efficiency subsidy for national energy-saving benefits is between 5 and 8%, and the subsidy scope is mainly the new level 1 energy efficiency and new level 2 energy efficiency models of fixed speed machines, and the above 2 energy efficiency grades. The type in Suning, Dongguan accounts for a relatively small amount, only about 30%, mainly concentrated in domestic brands such as Chigo and Oaks. It is expected that after the policy adjustment in the second half of the year, the price may fluctuate to a certain extent, and the price difference between inverter air conditioners and fixed frequency air conditioners will be further narrowed. "But fewer factories will directly increase the price, and most of them may reduce the promotion activities of fixed frequency products. Strength, in turn, strengthen the promotion of frequency conversion products. "

The person in charge of Dongguan Gome analyzed that the two-year implementation of the air-conditioning energy-saving subsidy policy has basically completed the policy objectives, and the initial adjustment of the proportion of high-efficiency air-conditioning product structure has been achieved. Therefore, fixed-speed air-conditioning that no longer enjoys policy subsidies will face price pressure. . At present, the air-conditioning energy-saving subsidy standard is 150 yuan to 250 yuan. It is precisely because of this subsidy policy that fixed-speed air conditioning has not been completely replaced by inverter air-conditioning, but with the cancellation of energy-saving subsidies and other factors, the cost pressure of fixed-frequency air conditioning is inevitable. increase.

"The inverter air conditioner of about RMB 3,000 is more popular with many consumers.
