At the 2017 AHR Expo, Panasonic will introduce new ducted heat pump models for ductless minisplit lines. The new lineup includes 9,000, 12,000, and 18,000 BTU/h single and multi-zone models, including 5,000 and 7,000 BTU/h indoor units for multi-zone systems. Single-zone systems operate at temperatures down to ?5°F (?20°C) and 9,000/12,000 BTU models comply with Energy Star requirements. The new ducted models incorporate the benefits of highly energy efficient and inverter-driven heat pump technology along with concealed indoor equipment.
For variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems, Panasonic has launched an entirely new platform of 460 V models. This product will be available from March 2017 and will be available in the following combinations: 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, and 30 tons. These high-specification and high-performance systems enhance the Panasonic range of HVAC products in the U.S. market.
