The best I've had.

Perfect for both heating and cooling. Performance is better than I could have hoped for. The hearing is excellent. I turn it off after an hour as it heats so well. So keeps running costs well down. Summer cooling is fantastic and doesn’t send my electric bill sky high.
Easy to use, remote control is well designed but is lacking a indoor temperature button, which I had on my LG air conditioning in previous home. Would be beneficial to add this Panasonic.
Price of unit was great and the 4.2 kW cools and heats a 40sq room efficiently.

Cool air cool styling.

I purchased this split system to replace an old one. It is a sleek design and very easy to use. It is sup8et quiet and quick to cool down my home. I would highly recommend to others.

Does the job

Does the job fairly well, cooled the room on a hot summer day set to 23. Power consumption is excellent. Getting the right setting is a bit finicky and if fan set to Auto it’s way too slow. Better to be set manually. Didn’t try heating as of yet.
