If you’re in the market for a ductless or split air conditioner, Panasonic is a brand you’ve likely come across. Our Panasonic air conditioner review breaks down a few of the features, benefits, and downfalls of Panasonic air conditioners.
When it comes to ductless air conditioners, Panasonic is one of the leading brands, with respects to energy efficiency, cost, and quality. If we had to rank Panasonic, they would only be slightly behind Mitsubishi, and they might just be right up there with them. They have spent decades manufacturing split and ductless units, offering a variety of models, including wall mounted, ceiling mounted, and concealed duct units.
Panasonic split air conditioners do have a variety of features that can be very useful, particularly a built-in low ambient setting, making the unit remarkably quiet. Other features include washable and anti-bacterial air filters, 24 hour mode, R410A refrigerant, and the patented Blue Fin technology. One of the downsides, is that we have yet to find an Energy Star certified model for the North American market. While their air conditioners are relatively efficient, they don’t carry some of the certifications that can help you with tax rebates. This can be important if you’re a contractor or distributor.
All Panasonic air conditioners do pack inverter technology, which helps to significantly reduce energy usage, by maintaining compressor speed and temperature with smart monitoring. Models with heat pumps are available, but we would point you in the direction of Mitsubishi, if you really want a solid heat pump. That said, Panasonic still does offer very decent bang for your buck, so it is definitely something to consider.
