Panasonic Australia has launched a new range of stylish reverse cycle air conditioners, featuring innovative energy saving technology and an enhanced air purifying system. The new air conditioner’s advanced features promise energy savings of up to 45 per cent, and cleaner air using nano-technology.

The 2013 range features an updated ECONAVI sensor that uses a combination of intelligent sensors to reduce energy wastage and save money on the power bill. Panasonic’s new Nanoe-G air purifying system also deactivates unwanted airborne, surface-based and in-filter particles. 

Matthew Harrison, Group Marketing Manager – Air Conditioning, Panasonic Australia explains that the smart technologies in the new range of energy-efficient Panasonic air conditioners will help keep Australians cool this summer - expected to be one of the hottest in history - while also keeping the power bill down.

ECONAVI and Inverter System

Panasonic’s latest ECONAVI technology uses human activity, sunlight and temperature sensors to intelligently adapt the cooling power according to room conditions. With just one touch of a button, customers can enjoy energy savings of up to 38 per cent on cooling mode and up to 45 per cent on heating mode.

For optimum energy saving, the area search mode uses two human activity sensors that detect activity in the room and direct cooling to the occupied area. The low activity detection mode monitors movement in the room and decreases cooling when there is low activity, while the absence detection feature switches to a slightly less powerful cooling mode when there is no one in the room. The smart sunlight detection feature detects sunlight intensity and adjusts cooling power accordingly. The new temperature wave feature uses input from other sensors to moderate the temperature, effectively balancing energy savings and comfort. 

Additionally, Panasonic’s inverter system makes constant adjustments to provide optimum performance at all times, with its extremely precise operation enabling quick cooling when needed while reducing power consumption compared to conventional non-inverter units. 

Nanoe-G Air Purifying System and Mild Dry Cooling Function

Panasonic’s revolutionary Nanoe-G feature utilises nano-technology to eliminate micro-organisms in the home for ultimate peace of mind. This active air purifying system removes 99 per cent of airborne bacteria, viruses and mould, and catches and deactivates 99 per cent of bacteria and viruses on surfaces and in the filter, resulting in a cleaner and healthier home.

The air purifying feature works hand-in-hand with the Mild Dry Cooling function, which reduces unwanted side effects of air conditioning such as dry skin and mouths by maintaining the level of air moisture in the room. 

Designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate, the latest Panasonic air conditioners will keep residents comfortable and can cope with outdoor temperatures as high as 46°C or as low as -15°C.

The award-winning design of the latest Panasonic air conditioners features a stylishly clean, slimline look and ventless intake grill that makes the units easier to clean. 

Panasonic has also launched five new cooling-only models as part of its extensive air conditioning range.
