Panasonic launched its latest reverse-cycle, wall mounted split system air conditioners yesterday.
Delivering comfort and peace of mind to Australians with the latest air purification technology, the Z Series range integrates Panasonic’s smartest air conditioning capabilities.
In keeping with Panasonic’s premium design philosophy and positioning consumer needs at the forefront, the premium Z Series Reverse Cycle R32 Wall Split Systems seamlessly integrate ‘smart home’ features in the form of in-built Wi-Fi and voice control1 , delivering further convenience and flexibility.
Customers can easily adjust temperature, monitor energy consumption and change modes from a mobile device via the Panasonic Comfort Cloud App, maintaining a greater level of control than ever before.
The Z Series models also boast Panasonic’s revolutionary nanoe X air purification technology, which inhibits common indoor pollutants from viruses to allergens, creating a fresher and healthier living environment for Australian homes – a timely technology for Australians preparing for summer.
The air purification capability of nanoe X actively cleans the air and surfaces within a room. It uses OH radicals encapsulated in water to inhibit micro-organisms – including 99 per cent of bacteria and viruses, as well as inhibiting mould, allergens and pollen and reducing odours.
It can be operated even when cooling or heating is not switched on. Panasonic’s Z Series Air Conditioners also deliver improvements to energy efficiency, reducing users’ environmental footprint with the AI-powered ECO mode.
The mode auto-adjusts to the optimal ECO level based on heat load conditions and air conditioning cooling capacity.
Furthermore, the Inverter Control feature varies the rotation speed of the compressor for higher energy savings.
Joe De Bella, senior product marketing Mmnager, air conditioning at Panasonic Australia said the company is always searching for opportunities to deliver certainty, convenience and flexibility to Australian customers, and this is demonstrated with the latest suite of Z Series solutions.
“We know that Australians demand heating and cooling solutions that enhance comfort and efficiency in their homes, while placing sustainability and cleanliness at front of mind,” De Bella said.
Our new Z Series Premium Reverse Cycle R32 Wall Split System range implements our latest ‘smart home’ features. It also upholds our promise to deliver reliable air purification capabilities that can keep Australians healthier and safer in indoor environments.”
