A Okay

I sleep like a baby. It is not noisy, then again I am a heavy sleeper. I got it installed the same day. I get so cold sometimes I have to turn it off. Because turning it down won’t help. My niece loves to sleep in my room. She uses it as well.

Good little aircon

Panasonic is going good it is very quiet unit, cools the large room (was told by guys to install the bigger kw unit as room is very big) but it is cooling fine. 2 on and off timers. Took 1 hour to install. Some issues are firstly no back light on remote and sometime makes a ticking noise when shut.

Super Quiet

We were surprised at how quiet this air con is. We have other older Panasonic air cons & they are a lot noisier than this one.
It even goes up & down by half a degree EG 22, 22.5.
Dual sensor, it also turns itself off automatically & back on when it requires.
Perfect size for our home office.
