Panasonic AC Review Parameter #1- Panasonic’s Compressor Technology

Most Panasonic ACs use good quality rotary compressors with variable speed, which is very energy efficient. Moreover,  the Compressor is further optimized through various proprietary technologies to enhance its performance. The design of the Compressor built by Panasonic is branded with the name of twin cool inverter compressor technology. Here is the overview of this technology:

Twin Cool inverter compressor

This Panasonic Twin Cool Inverter AC features a compressor that has two independent rotors. The twin rotors of this Compressor balance the load efficiently. This results in a smoother operation of the AC with less wear and tear and subsequently provides a longer life to the Compressor.

Panasonic AC Review Parameter #2- Condenser Coil

Air conditioners made by Panasonic comes with a 100% copper condenser coil. It is the best option available in the market when it comes to choosing the condenser coil. The copper has a high heat transfer coefficient which helps in faster heat exchange & efficient cooling. Other than that, some other additional company-specific modifications increase the efficiency & durability of the coils. Below is a brief description of the technology used by Panasonic in the coils:

Shield-Blu (Anti Corrosion Blue Fin Technology)

Bluefin technology is used to protect the evaporator coil from damaging environmental conditions. Actually, an epoxy layer on the AC evaporator coil in this technology prevents the humidity from staying on the coils. It also protects the coil from the micro- constituent & salts present in the air, especially in the coastal region.

All the humidity & salts tend to accelerate the coil’s corrosion & decrease the overall life span. So, it is a much-needed feature when the outdoor unit is not under a shed or any kind of protection from the sun or outside weather.

Panasonic AC Review Parameter #3- Cooling Quality of Panasonic

Various advanced technologies are integrated into the Panasonic air conditioners to provide a fantastic cooling experience. As we have observed, the cooling efficiency & quality of these ACs are pretty good. Although, there is no mention of high ambient cooling by Panasonic, which means you may experience a slightly lesser performance than the AC that focuses on it.

cyborg wisdomCyborg fact:

The decrease in performance due to lack of Ambient cooling is limited to very high temperatures around 50 – 52 degree Celsius. So, it not much of a concern in the regular summer environment. Unless you live in a sweltering region where the temperatures go above 50 degrees very frequently in the summer season, you need not worry about High ambient cooling.

Now, here are the technologies that Panasonic uses to enhance the cooling Quality of its ACs :

Jet Stream Technology

In this technology, the fan in the indoor unit is designed in such a way that it helps the AC to generate much stronger airflow. The size of the fan is made larger in order to increase the air intake. A high air intake creates a strong airflow that covers up to 45 feet when released. This eventually increases the cooling range & cooling speed of the AC.

Aero wings

In Aero wings technology used by Panasonic, the main objective is to direct the airflow precisely. Modifying the airflow in such a way increases the cooling speed & uniformity of it. Panasonic AC achieves this by two independent motors, which control the two flaps present in the air conditioner.

This flap arrangement gives two types of airflow direction. First, the airflow is directly directed towards you for faster cooling. Other is meant for slower & gentler cooling to cool the top tier of the room’s air. However, the slower cooling felt more comfortable because it doesn’t throw chilled air directly to your face.

4-way airflow

One of the advantages of the aero wings technology is that the air conditioner can direct the airflow precisely in the direction where needed. The airflow can be moved up & down or left & right as per your requirement.

Powerful mode

It is a mode that, when turned ON, runs the AC at its maximum capacity for 60 minutes. The temperature is internally set to 2 degrees lower than the display temperatures set by the user & the fan speed is turned to its maximum at the same time. This setup provides a faster & more intense cooling in the room. The most significant benefit of this mode can be seen when you come from outside, and the room is pretty hot.

Panasonic AC Review Parameter #4 – Build Quality

Being such a big brand, customers expect the built quality of ACs from Panasonic to be good. And, no doubt that the company lives by its reputation here. The design and the technology used in the Panasonic air conditioner are focused on all-weather condition. So, these ACs are going to last long, even in harsh environmental condition.

The shield blu technology & the material used in the outdoor unit really performs well. Here is a description of all of their design elements in this regard :

Eco Tough technology

This Eco-Tough technology is mainly related to the material & design modification they have done to provide a longer life to the AC unit. The outdoor unit is made capable of withstanding direct sunlight, rain & strong winds. So you don’t have to worry about putting the outdoor unit in a safe environment.

Panasonic ac review - Eco Tough technology

cyborg wisdomCyborg Notes:

Technologies like this Eco-Tough technology is highly beneficial for the users who don’t have an indoor place to keep the outdoor unit of AC. People living in high-rise buildings & those who want to keep the outdoor unit of AC on their roof in the open certainly need an extra layer of protection. So, we always suggest such people to go for technologies similar to Eco-Tough, for an all-weather operation of AC without any corrosion issue.

Panasonic AC Review parameter #5 – Energy conservation measures

The variable speed rotary motor used in the Panasonic AC is meant for very efficient performance. The Compressor need not to turned on/off frequently to maintain the temperature. This implies no sudden load on the Compressor due to regular on/off of it. As a result, the power utilization of the twin rotary setup proves to be very economical in the long run.

ECONAVI

ECONAVI Intelligent Sensors detect unconscious waste of energy using a  motion Sensor and Sunlight Sensor. This intelligent sensor can monitor human location, movements, absence and sunlight intensity. It then automatically adjusts cooling power to save energy efficiently without interrupting the user’s comfort and convenience.

Panasonic AC Review Parameter #6- Air filtration

Panasonic has its own technology for air purification, which they provide in their air conditioners. Here is a detailed explanation of the technology used by Panasonic in their ACs :

Nanoe – G

Nanoe-G is Panasonic’s original air purifying system that uses Nanoe technology fine particles consisting of ions and radicals. Nanoe-G works effectively on airborne, adhesive and in-filter trapped micro-organisms such as bacteria and viruses, thus providing a cleaner living environment.

Nanoe-G consists of air components, not chemicals, so that they can be used without worries by people sensitive to chemicals. For more details about this, you can visit their official page.

Nanoe – X

It is also a filtration technology used by Panasonic. It is new and one of the most advance & effective purification technique available today. It has remarkable effects on bacteria & virus inhibition & deodorization. It uses a multi-leader discharge system that focuses on the discharge to 4 needle-shaped electrode, which emits an incredible amount of OH radicals. These OH radicals take the hydrogen from the bacteria and turn it into H2O. For viruses, it changes the viruses’ protein to destroy them.

Overall, the Nanoe – X technology makes the air wholly fresh and odour free.

AG Clean technology

It is basically a filter used in Panasonic AC consisting of three layers of filters. The first is a copper oxide Nano filter, the second is a silver ion filter, & the last one is a herbal filter. They work together to improve the air quality by stopping harmful bacteria and substance from entering the ecosystem of your room.

Panasonic AC Review Parameter #7- Smart AC features in Panasonic

Panasonic has a smart AC segment that comes with features by which you can control it through your smartphone. The smartphone operation of these Wi-Fi enabled ACs is dependent on their mobile app platform called mirAIe. Here is the complete overview of this app :
