Really good cooling during the summer. using for heating in the bedroom (got 3 installed) and find them a bit noisy even on quite mode.

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.

Very quiet and the powerful mode is useful to get on top of the heat when I first come home

Replaced an existing split system with this product and the noise reduction was amazing. Other than that it works as advertised and easily cools the recommended room size.

I live in North Queensland so obviously I can’t comment on it’s heating performance.
