Panasonic Review

Founded in Japan in 1918, by 1958 the first Panasonic room air conditioner was developed and marketed under the National Brand. The air conditioner was a huge success; air conditioning units had been mainly produced for business prior to this. The low cost and affordability of the unit were huge draw cards. By 1975 Panasonic had expanded their technological expertise and became the first Japanese air conditioner manufacturer to open in Europe, followed by the rest of the world. In 2003 their range of air conditioners became non-ozone depleting and energy efficient. The company continues to advance the use of technology in their residential and commercial products.

Residential Solutions

Panasonic’s flagship range of wall mounted split and multi systems deliver performance and energy efficiency. They contain a standalone air purification system, making them ideal for families and those with allergies.

Split Systems

Panasonic have three key split system categories in their split system range. These are ‘ECONAVI’, cooling-only inverters and standard reverse-cycle inverters. With cooling capacities ranging from 2.5kw up to 8kw, they service spaces from a study to a small apartment using Nano technology to purify air.

The systems engage sensors to monitor the location, movement and potential absence of humans within areas covered by the air conditioner. These sensors then adjust output to better suit any change in area population, potentially increasing efficiency, save energy and reduce unnecessary wear and tear on the units. They offer a wide range of solutions, with 14 models in the range.

Ventilation Fans

Panasonic’s range of ventilation fans are super quiet and compact. They can work as extraction fans for bathroom or laundry areas, reducing damp and thereby the development of mould. The fan can be set to run at a low setting continuously so that both damp and mould can avoided.

An intelligent motion sensor on the model detects human activity – switching itself on and off accordingly. This saves energy, eliminating the fan being left on accidentally.

VRF Systems

Panasonic pride themselves on the energy-saving performance their VRF units are capable of providing. With a rated operation, outdoor temperature may be constant at 35 degrees, but in reality outdoor temperature is continuously changing. Panasonic’s systems implements propriety control so that required air conditioning performance also changes as needed.

Panasonic’s Mini-VRF units are compatible with a variety of indoor units including floor standing, ducted and cassette. They offer a variety of controllers including Wi-Fi and the Smart Cloud. Their heat exchangers have been reinforced to resist corrosion in harsh Australian conditions.
