Great units

Have installed all together 6 units, 5 x 2.5 kw and 1 x 7.1 kw. 5 units working for last 4 years without any issues. 1 unit had an issue with the board. Called Panasonic and the board was replaced within a week. Great service Show reply

Panasonic track record of terminating remote smartphone features

The advertised Smartphone remote features require access to Panasonic's server. Therefore they will only work if Panasonic continues to provide that support, otherwise the advertised remote operation features will no longer operate. Unfortunately Panasonic has demonstrated that it will terminate this support, even for current products advertised as having that functionality,

Noisy junk

Don't buy this rubbish. Terrible build quality, loud atuators on swing blanes. Cheap nasty plastic parts that expand and contract. If installed in bedroom it will keep you awake all night. Horrible thing! Show details

NOT COLD. Would not recommend. C 7.1KW H 8KW

Thought great, hot weather, new air conditioner but sadly disappointed. NOT COLD. Had people around for a Christmas lunch and it was too hot outside. We were all hot inside with the air con going .Tried all settings and at a temperature of 20 you would think it would be cold . NO. Very upset. (Yes all filters are clean.) Would not recommend. Show details

My Experience: After repaired by Panasales: EXCELLENT!

What Actew AGL could not find out and repair in one year and several useless service visits Panasales did in one visit to evaluate the fault and 24 hours later repairing a faulty motherboard on the air-conditioning. Panasales have been excellent and have to be recommended. Now my air-conditioning system works to perfection a fact one expects from Panasonic. Well done and highly recommended. Show details ·  5

Too Noisy: Must avoid

Panasonic C2.5kW H3.2kW Reverse Cycle Split System CS/CU-Z25VKR
I regret my decision to go for Panasonic Air Conditioner. It's noisy like helicopter when used for heating during winter.
I got this installed in Oct 19. The pain of noise got me to warranty. The outdoor unit was replaced, but the new unit is as noisy as the old one.
My experience: Avoid Panasonic Air Conditioner

Hi Tom B, thanks for your message, CS/CU-Z50VKR appears to be undersize for the room space of 550 square feet.

Vaulted ceilings are a problem with respect of heating with AirConditioning.
Heat rises and air circulation is very important.
I suggest you contact your local Airconditioning expert to advise you on the appropriate system for your application.

Installing a heat pump reverse cycle in our bedroom, are there any special things to be considered when unit on second floor?
Grateful for your advice

Hi Kimmy, Best thing as Gordon mentions is to have an installer follow the installation instructions contained within the product to ensure the best location is selected to install the unit in.
