Inverter Technology

Panasonic's inverter provides optimum power control and extremely efficient operation by changing the power supply frequency. The result is speedy, flexible operation using less electricity.

 

Features

  Microprocessor-Controlled Operation

Microprocessor control ensures that the temperature and humidity levels in the room are always comfortable.

 

Wireless Remote Control

Panasonic’s infrared Remote Control with and easy to read LCD Display, gives the user the capability to adjust & set temperature, sweep (louver control), fan speeds, timer and more, for complete automatic operation.

 

 

Dry Mode

By coupling compressor and fan operation, intermittent operation can be precisely controlled according to room temperature, so that air is efficiently dehumidified.

 

 

3 Fan Speeds and Automatic Fan Operation

Convenient microprocessor control automatically adjusts fan speed to High, Medium or Low. According to room temperature to maintain a comfortable airflow throughout the room.

 

 

Air Sweep Control

The air sweep function moves the louver up and down in the air outlet, directing air in a “sweeping” motion around the room and providing comfort in every corner.

 

 

Louver Control

Louver can be manually set to the desired angle by remote control.

 

 

 

Automatic Heating and Cooling Changeover

After setting the temperature and functions you desire, just relax. If the room temperature is higher than the set temperature, cooling operation begins. If the room temperature is lower than the set temperature, heating operation begins. During normal thermostat cycle operation, cooling and heating operations automatically change in accordance with set temperature, time and room temperature. (Single Zone Heat Pump unit only)

 

 

 

1-hour OFF Timer

When this button is pushed either while the unit is operating or while it is stopped, the unit will operate for one hour and then switch off automatically.

 

 

24-hour Clock with ON/OFF Program Timer

The remote control unit allows you to set a wide variety of timer-based operations. Such functions include automatic ON/OFF with a timer setting, same time ON/OFF every day, ON timer, OFF timer and Combination timer.

 

 

 

Night Setback Mode for Cooling and Heating

Cooling and DRY Mode: With the Night Setback Mode, the air conditioner automatically raises the setting temperature 2°F after 30 minutes, and then another 2°F after the next 30 minutes. Heating Mode: With the Night Setback Mode, the setting temperature is automatically lowered 4°F after 30 minutes, and then another 4°F after the next 30 minutes. This saves energy without sacrificing comfort and is ideal for gentle cooling and heating.

 

 

 

Automatic Restart Function after Power Failure

This feature allows the system to automatically resume operation at its preset program, after power is restored from a power failure.

 

 

 

Hot Start Heating System

Right from the start, air is warm and comfortable. The Hot Start Heating System prevents any cold blasts at the beginning while the heat pump is warming up. (Heat pump unit only)

 

 

 

Built-In Drain Pump

Max. head 20 inches from the discharge of the indoor unit. Condensate pump is only for allowing drain line to meet minimum gravity flow requirements.

 

 

 

Electric Refrigerant Control Valve

The circulation volume of the refrigerant is controlled by a pulse type electric control valve. In order to attain optimum efficiency, when the power is switched ON, the opening degree of the electric control valve is controlled between 90 and 480 steps.

 

 

Quiet Mode

LOW, low fan speed for extra quiet operation.

 

 

 

Filter Sign

Filter sign informs you when filter maintenance is necessary.

 

 

 

Self-Diagnosing Function

Details of previous warnings are stored and can be verified on the liquid crystal display. This makes it easier to diagnose malfunctions, greatly reducing service labor. (Wired remote controller)

 

 

 

Anti-microbial Filter

Anti-microbial Filter by 3M. This filter inhibits the growth of mold and mildew, and helps to create clean air.

Cooling Capacity
36000 BTU
Heating Capacity

The amount of heat, rated in BTUs that the item can produce.

Heating Capacity
37800 BTU
SEER

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of cooling over an entire season. It is determined by comparing the amount of cooling produced in BTUs in relation to the amount of electricity used. A higher SEER means a system is more energy efficient and would provide comfort at a lower utility cost than a lower SEER system.

SEER
18.5 SEER
Air Flow

The amount of air, rated in cubic feet per minute, that the unit can move.

Air Flow
750 CFM
Energy Efficiency Ratio

The measure of air conditioner efficiency at its maximum load

Energy Efficiency Ratio
9.6 EER
Heating Seasonal Performance Factor

A measure of heat pump efficiency while in a heating mode. The higher the number the better the energy efficiency.

Heating Seasonal Performance Factor
13.05 HSPF
Refrigerant

Inside air conditioning systems are liquid/gas refrigerant. There are two types of this refrigerant available for use, R-22 (more commonly known as Freon), and a newer alternative R-410A.

An air conditioning system does not consume refrigerant, but reuses it. As long as there are no leaks in the refrigerant circuit, there is no need to ever add more refrigerant to an air conditioning system.

Although R-22 is an effective refrigerant, if it is released into the atmosphere it can contribute to the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer. The EPA has mandated the phasing out the use of R-22. It is being replaced by R-410A.

As of 2010, manufacturers are required to make all new air conditioners with R-410A. However, R-22 is still available for sale in existing pre-2010-manufactured equipment, and for use in servicing existing R-22 equipment. By 2020, R-22 will no longer be manufactured, but will still be recycled and available for sale.
