Panasonic celebrates making the shortlist in the 2020 H&V News Awards

05 February 2020

Panasonic is pleased to announce that its Aquarea J-Series Air Source Heat Pump has been shortlisted in the Domestic HVAC Product category of the 2020 H&V News Awards.

The winners will be announced at a glamorous dinner at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane on 30th April 2020.

The H&V News Awards are highly regarded within the industry and celebrate technology and solutions designed to meet today’s environmental challenges through innovative products and projects.

Tony Nielsen, UK Marketing Manager of Panasonic commented “We are honoured to be shortlisted in these prestigious Awards. High standards and innovation are a priority within Panasonic. Reaching the shortlist confirms Panasonic’s achievements and highlights the commitment that the company has to create innovative, sustainable and resourceful solutions to meet today’s HVAC requirements.”

To support a more environmentally friendly approach, the Aquarea J-series uses R32 refrigerant. R32 is easy to recycle, has zero impact on the ozone layer and 75% less impact on global warming when compared to R410A, helping to lower the carbon footprint of a building.

It is also a more economical alternative with higher efficiency2 and 30% less refrigerant used, so customers can enjoy cost savings as well as significant environmental benefits.

The design of the new Panasonic Aquarea J Generation models was an important consideration in order to enhance the range for both installers and end users.

Extended piping lengths provide further flexibility to cater to a range of building sizes. The 3kW and 5kW capacities now have a total piping length of 25m, also providing an increased elevation difference between indoor and outdoor units from 5m to 20m. Meanwhile 7kW and 9kW units reach a higher limit up to 50m, ensuring users can adapt the system to their needs.

A 30m elevation length also increases installation options for professionals.

The Aquarea J Generation can reach an output water temperature of 60°C and there is also a new chiller function which can provide cooling down to 10°C – the perfect solution for flexible environmental control.

Furthermore, the new J Generation delivers optimum performance when outdoor temperatures are extremely low, even down to -20°C. There are two new sensor positions available for DHW control, which can be selected to improve efficiency or comfort levels.

Users can select an option for improved efficiency and the most effective DHW COP when operating in part load capacity, or for greater comfort simply select an option to reduce heat-up time when operating in full load.

As a global leader in pioneering product design, Panasonic has created a network of production and R&D facilities on a global level, ensuring the distribution of cutting-edge technologies that set the standard for energy efficient heating and cooling solutions worldwide.

Tony Nielsen further added “Panasonic products focus consistently on innovation, reliability, ecological respect and connectivity. It’s great for the brand to be recognised for this through the Domestic HVAC Product category at the H&V News Awards.”
