Panasonic is launching its latest reverse-cycle wall mounted split system air conditioners with the latest air purification technology and the company’s smartest air conditioning capabilities to date.

The premium Z Series Reverse Cycle R32 Wall Split Systems feature in-built Wi-Fi and voice control (with compatible Google Home or Alexa device) for added convenience and flexibility. Customers can adjust temperature, monitor energy consumption and change modes from a mobile device via the Panasonic Comfort Cloud app.

The Z Series models also offer Panasonic’s nanoeX air purification technology, which inhibits common indoor pollutants from viruses to allergens, creating a fresher and healthier living environment.

The air purification capability of nanoeX actively cleans the air and surfaces within a room. It uses OH radicals encapsulated in water to inhibit micro-organisms – including 99% of bacteria and viruses, as well as inhibiting mould, allergens and pollen and reducing odours. It can be operated when cooling or heating is not switched on.

Panasonic’s Z Series air conditioners also deliver improvements to energy efficiency with theAI-powered Eco mode. The mode auto-adjusts to the optimal Eco level based on heat load conditions and cooling capacity. In addition, the Inverter Control feature varies the rotation speed of the compressor for higher energy savings.

The latest Z Series comes in a matte finish, rather than traditional gloss finish, to better suit individual needs. Available in capacities from 2.5kW to 8kW, RRPs start from $1,199.
