Review of Panasonic Air Conditioners

Panasonic logoOne of the biggest manufacturers of consumer electronics in both Japan and the world, Panasonic has been producing and selling air conditioners since 1958, when the company introduced its original ‘Home Air Conditioner’. Since then Panasonic has put a lot of effort into diversifying and improving its range of air conditioning products. It doesn’t have specific ranges for each type of air conditioning unit, with models only really distinguished by price – so we looked at the features that Panasonic offers on its four kinds of air conditioners: split-system, ducted, cassette and under ceiling.

How much electricity does my air-conditioner use?

ECONAVI Intelligent Sensors

Designed to prevent the waste of energy, these sensors are able to monitor the location, movements and potential absence of humans within the areas covered by the air conditioner. It can then adjust its output in terms of fan power and cooling power to better suit new conditions, and potentially save energy and increase efficiency.

Inverter

According to the Panasonic website, its Inverter air conditioners are able to vary the rotation speed of their compressors, which allows for the use of less energy while maintaining a set temperature, along with increasing the speed at which the unit can heat or cool a room at start-up. This means less electricity is used without sacrificing any efficiency or speed of operation. Panasonic’s Inverter technology appears to be available in both its wall-mounted air conditioners and multi split-system air conditioners.

nanoe-G

nanoe-G is an air purification system developed by Panasonic for use in its air conditioners. The system uses ‘nano technology’ consisting of ions and radicals in order to be effective against bacteria and viruses whether they be airborne, adhesive, or trapped in-filter. The system makes use of zero chemicals or cleaning agents, which makes it perfect for those who are either sensitive to chemicals or worried about the presence of them in their house.

Panasonic claims that the nanoe-G system can remove 99% of particular matter (particles and droplets less than 2.5 micrometers) in the air, and that it has the same success rate when it comes to the removal of airborne bacteria and viruses, and the deactivation of adhesive micro-organisms.

In summary

Panasonic was definitely right in thinking that the air conditioner would become an incredibly important appliance, and it’s evident that the manufacturer has put time and effort into making its air conditioners the best they can be. Note that you may not find certain features mentioned on some varieties of Panasonic air conditioners.
